Following up on the previous Computer Generated Issues post, here are some additional points brought up by Vince Mancini from Uproxx. The following "Hasta la vista" clip from Terminator 2: Judgement Day is a great reminder how much more awesome special effects were back in the day and if this scene were shot in 2015, it would most likely be all CG.

Sequences like this were more of a spectacle. Wizards like Stan Winston created the real magic that we're not seeing so much of anymore.
