I've got one and a half words for this thread: Supermarionation.

Of course, it's not gonna happen, but Gary Anderson's method of storytelling was quite effective with dozens of shows. Even though I'm a Digital Media major, I'd like to see a serious effort on the part of moviemakers to stop relying so heavily on digital effects, and go back to the "Well, this door was actually an 8 foot long block of styrofoam that Bill and I found. The burn marks were done by brushing on gasoline, then airbrushed to color," line of production.

For those who don't know, Supermarionation was the technique uesed in such wonderful TV series as Fireball XL-5, Supercar, Joe 90, and most popularly Thunderbirds (the 1960's TV show, not the 2004 movie based on it), as well as many others.
