After 100+ years of Hollywood filmmaking, there was bound to be some awful old-age makeup lurking in some famous movies. What you don't see every day, however, is a film that features state-of-the-art special effects and terrible old-age makeup at the same time. There is a sort of cognitive dissonance there. How can a movie feature the best movie magic money can buy and fumble facial prosthetics, as well? Well, filmmaking is a collaborative art with hundreds - if not thousands - of people working on any given project.
Prometheus may have some visual effects that leave you speechless, but it also houses Guy Pearce completely failing to convincingly play a man in his hundreds. Marvel Studios movies generally have amazing CGI, but Captain America: The Winter Soldier also features a pretty shoddily aged-up Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter. And how about the entire cast of Back to the Future Part II? Need we say more? If you're in the mood to gawk at some next-level blockbusters with shockingly bad old-age makeup, go ahead and scroll down.
