The Fish Through

I dOh fishecided to step through the frames of the movie ‘The Core’ (2003). Somewhere in one of the extra features, the director (Jon Amiel) mentions a specific ‘easter egg’.

You’ll find that fish somewhere in chapter II, in the scene where the family tries to find cover in a bookstore. Apparently (uh-huh) the whole birds shot was done in CGI, hence the fish. Although the CGI looks a lot better than the special effects used in ‘The Birds’ (1963), I doubt it is as scary. But I guess, when I was younger I thought mostHitchcock movies were scarier than the average typical 70’s horror movie.

The rest of the CGI in ‘The Core’ is pretty bad, particularly the scenes when the ‘Microwave effect’ affects a city in Italy.
