23 Movies That Put Insane Detail Into Stuff You Missed

People give the Star Wars Prequels grief for the abundance of CGI (some of which are valid, like why did every set of clonetrooper armor need to be digital?) but there is just as much astonishing miniatures and model work in there. Both Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith were nominated for the “Best Models and Miniatures” award by the Visual Effects Society in their respective years. 
Further: people point to behind the scenes photos laden with green screen as proof that “nothing was real”. But green screen does not mean “to be later filled in with entirely digital effects”. Often, green screen allows models/miniatures to be composited in, after the fact (the same way that matte paintings were composited into backgrounds in the original trilogy*).
The above set as well as the scale sets of Geonosis, Kashyyyk, Mustafar, and Utapau are all really gorgeous. AND I’M GETTING INDIGNANT ABOUT IT, OVER A DECADE LATER.
Also, the rest of this list is excellent.
* And there’s no real difference between a matte painting in 1977 and a digital painting in 2002, dumb dumbs. Whatevz. Colored Q-tips.
