YouTube user bengraphics created this montage of film clips from the past 100 years, demonstrating the evolution of cinematic special effects.  It was originally just intended for a class lecture, but has gone viral.  Featured films include The Enchanted Drawing (1900) Thief of Baghdad (1940) and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008). Run time: 5 minutes.

Yeah, there were gaps, especially with 2001. And the wrong Star Wars explosion - they weren't doing that in the 70's.

That's "Visual Effects" Not "Special Effects"
Special effects are in-camera effects like explosions or costumes/makeup. Visual Effects are post work including rotoscoping, paint models shop work, stop-motion or modern CG animation.
