Rogue One was pretty seamless; you should also add Peter Cushing to that description.

Part 18 (2017) of Twin Peaks will be my vote, I guess, because it is, perhaps, the only case in which the trick never tipped me of. I still don't have a slightest idea how the effect was accomplished.

Well, Twin Peaks was an incredibly secretive production. It was barely promoted and even after it was finished, nobody really talked about it in detail. Lynch famously doesn't talk about his work at all. There was plenty of BTS material in the Blu-ray release but the de-aging process is still a mystery. It was indeed very convincing and the scene very powerful.

Eagles90 I wouldn't say that Lynch does not talk about his work at all, as he touches some aspects in interviews and self-made documentaries. He rarely elaborates on anything, though, to a point that it's a bit of a niche meme in several Facebook communities. :) 

Lynch also never explained the full FX work on Eraserhead (1977), especially how on Earth that baby was animated. If you watch closely the best you can decipher is that he likely used some sort of mirror trick to conceal the puppeteer plus foam under pressure in the stabbing scene (I don't think there are any spoilers there... It's impossible to spoil THAT movie)...

I think voters would be confused if this were to run as a poll before The Irishman and Gemini Man come out, but it looks like a good list.

True enough, although both movies have already released trailers featuring footage of the de-aged actors.

Eagle, if you removed those two unreleased films, it could run soon and then you could add those movies, through a re-push, when they're released.

I'll consider it. But I'd really like it to go live with all options included. Adding more options months later doesn't really work, since nobody comes back to change his/her vote. You just add them and they stay at the bottom.

Eagles, this is a good poll and I'd suggest bumping it in late November or early December after 'Irishman' has been released. Thanks.

Congratulations, Eagles! :D
Sorry, but I gotta notice that the link in option #23 is broken.
There is just an open gap.
