To answer this, let's take a quick look at Merriam-Webster's definition of "art", specifically the section on synonyms: ART, SKILL, CUNNING, ARTIFICE, CRAFT mean the faculty of executing well what one has devised. If we look at the art of foleying—for this is what we're talking about—it's sort of interesting to note that it's always been at least as much a ...

Monty Python's Flying Circus did this. According to TV Tropes: Credits Gag: In addition to many Creative Closing Credits, the placement of the credits in the show's sequence was a gag in itself. Of particular note is the episode "The Golden Age of Ballooning", where the closing credits ran about halfway through the show. The next episode, "...

I believe the notorious film Irréversible does this as part of its "reverse chronology" gimmick. The credits roll right at the very beginning, reversed so they scroll from top-to-bottom instead of bottom-to-top. Even though it doesn't count, as it's not a movie or TV show, I feel obliged to mention Donkey Kong Country. You defeat King K. Rool, a fake set of ...

As far as the high-pitched noise goes, you might want to think about what's being shown. The sound you're hearing is (supposed to be) not the sound of the gun itself, but the sound of the bullet ricocheting off a surface. In your For your eyes only clip, the surfaces are entirely concrete and metal, and it's reasonable to expect ricochets. In Casino Royale, ...

I will admit that this is a guess, but I have to wonder whether it's an issue with the type of film restoration they do when making the disc. With older prints, there can be a lot of dust, scratches, hairs, etc. on the print. Also, depending on a number of factors about how the movie was filmed, it may be grainier than they wanted, but were limited at the ...

The 30 Rock series finale was longer than most episodes and had the start of a early credit roll (just the "Lorne Michaels" part) before Liz quickly brought the show back to finish up the finale.

The 1999 comedy Man on the Moon starts with the main character saying that the film isn't very good and that he has cut out all of the baloney. In fact, he says, this is the end of the movie. The credits then roll. Then the screen fades to black. See

In the Garry Marshall comedy Young Doctors in Love (1982), the main character's love interest appears to be dying or dead. The main character is walking away sadly, alone, and the credits start rolling up from the bottom of the screen. The main character looks at the camera and says, "No, not now." The credits reverse direction and scroll back off the ...

Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion was created as an alternative version of the two last episodes of the TV series, so they put the credits at the middle to presumably emphasize this fact. According to Wikipedia, the episodic version of the film includes two endings, one for each episode, and even a next-episode-preview section in the first one. ...

It may be impossible to answer this question for the mockbuster industry as a whole from outside the industry, without a reliable way to count profits made outside a box office. However, one mockbuster-heavy studio, The Asylum, has released some numbers. According to GQ, their films normally cost ~500,000 dollars to make and turn 125,000 to 250,000 in profit....

Trains were and are very common in the age of silent movies and today, and so have often been used to put characters in various types of danger in the movies. But this article: https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/rethinking-the-origins-of-the-damsel-on-the-railroad-tracks 1 Says that it is more of a myth that dramatic silent films used the trope of ...

The French film Mais qui a tué Pamela Rose ? (2003) does this too. The credits roll for no particular reason, and the film restart few seconds later, like nothing happened.

Liza, the Fox-Fairy (2015) might be an example. Although the running time after the fake end credits is not substantial (only slightly more than two minutes), it is not an after-credits bonus scene, but part of the movie. The movie seems to end in a cliffhanger, the frame freezes, and the credits start to roll, with a corresponding music. Then the credits ...

Jan Kounen's 99 francs includes a fake credit sequence in the final quarter of the movie. The movie features two alternative endings of sorts. After the first ending plays out, the credits start to roll, but after a while, the protagonist interjects and forces the movie to continue, partially undoing some of what was shown before. This is very much in tone ...

This question is good, and the posted answers are good, but looking at this from a far higher level you need to realize something: A movie is make-believe and sound effects and special effects are never “realistic” as much as they are artistically believable. So yes, in the past films looked, sounded and were acted in “clunky” ways compared to modern films....
