Ah suck. This was the category I voted for whatever could prevent BB from winning. Obviously I failed miserably.
Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

Why?  Are you letting your dislike of the movie get in the way of your judgment of the effects?

Iron Man came close, but I can't think of another film that had as much going for it, effect-wise.  Subtle, believable, wow-inducing.
