I always liked that effect!
The idea behind the effect is fine... but to truly give the illusion of the great size of the planet killer, the gasses should have "burped out" (horrible term, I know) much slower. Hence the suggestion that they should have shot the effect at a higher speed; when played slower, it would have looked much better.

Re: The Doomsday Machine Revealed

What I like about that scene is it speaks to the implied strength of the neutronium hull. The stuff is so strong the robot still didn't blow apart, but everything went out the funnel.

Man, I wouldn't want to have been in line with that flame of debris.
