This is a link post Arbitrary List of Top 10 Practical Effects in Some Films
but interesting in parts. I thought the LOTR bit was anyway. (And I'm enjoying imagining them shooting a real Royal Wedding like that)

Cue CGI vs Limmy vs Bicycles vs....

This is a normal post Oh yes, bit of an omission, that.
I was lucky enough to see an amazing bit of practical in 'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World', where Scott goes into the toilet and while he's having a pee, about twenty grips and carpenters built a whole new set outside the toilet door in about 15 seconds. So when Scott emerges out of the bathroom, he's in a totally different place from when he went in.

(I'm sure people asked the director why it was just done with CGI, but I can't remember his answer.)

This is a normal post Most credit to Bottin though
he did an awesome Job. I'm a huge FX fan, as a kid it's what I wanted to do. Maybe when I grow up eigh?

This is a normal post Looks like he retired in 2000 or so.
I'd never heard of that scene in Terminator 2. That technique rings a bell from somewhere though.

This is a normal post Number 1 is fantatsic
I'm not as awed by the Dark Knight plane as some others, as it's too reminiscent of Cliffhanger
