So do I have to catch up on this season
Thought they turned a corner aesthetically around season 5. New DP took over in 4. Remember it looking like shit, then suddenly getting a bit better.Atmosphere wrote:A friend of mine started (despite my cautions) Season 1 the other night and we ended up watching the whole 6 episodes in one sitting. It was actually pretty depressing looking back where this all started; how much promise the show had. It was well-directed, the characters were genuinely engaging, and despite a few iffy CG moments - it was pretty fine looking too.
Fast forward to now, and it's a completely different show. Amateurish on almost all levels. In terms of its aesthetic, especially, it's shocking to see how fucking ugly it has become. A shadow of its former self, as limp and deteriorated as the walkers. What a shame.
Regardless, the 16mm isn't doing anyone any favors. Hard to shake that gross, trashy, early 2000's horror grime from it. Had a good laugh at this.
loooooooooool ok bud.“The Walking Dead” is known for graphic violence and monster ratings, but the AMC hit rarely receives the attention it deserves for delivering some of the smallscreen’s most well-crafted images. Whether that means a zombie horde descending on human prey or a quiet emotional beat shared between battle-weary survivors, much of the series’ epic storyline is communicated through elegant visuals
