and Harry and the Hendersons in 1987.

but if they were't willing to spend the money for Henson Studios i doubt they could have afforded Baker.

the team they hired just looked like they didn't have any budget to work with.
the materials looked like animated halloween masks.
Yeah Baker was great, his work on Harry and the Henderson's was puppet legend. Only saw the werewolf movie a few times as a kid, so I could not make a comment on that lol. His work on Gremlins 2 should get a mention.

i can honestly say if you enjoy horror movies, then you really might want to check out American Werewolf in London. absolute classic! i watch that movie at least 2 or 3 times a year.

good point about Gremlins 2!
now i'm wondering who did the effects for the first Gremlin film?
those effects were amazing!

I get what you're saying. I would just think since they've done animatronic work already that they'd be qualified. Looking at the end result I think the company went in totally unprepared.

It's not the Bay films ... so it automatically gets a pass.

To me, TMNT III is like the Batman & Robin of the franchise. Fun to laugh at. Some interesting moments in there, but overall a forgettable affair.
