I wonder if the modern film audience will ever reach a limit for how impressed they can be special effects and CGI that they go full retro and start demanding films like this that are essentially on-screen stunt shows

Part of me thinks that yeah, of course people will want something more real and visceral once movies reach the technological limit that is theoretically there

But another part of me knows that people watching "real" scenes like this Buster clip will expect it to be artificial in some way, just because the precedent forscenes like this is there
