Topic was probably used up more than most other played-out topics, in dozens of old threads in the past 12 years or so.

An awful lot of work went into salvaging that slow flyaway for GEN (one of the only optical as opposed to digital comps in the show), and even so it looked so 'off' from the rest as seen in-cinema that it was disconcerting. Hard to believe then & now that mo-con stage miniature work would be so expensive as to make spending ANY dollars trying to salvage that worthwhile.
