21:18 - !J.O.O.E.! It's worrying how the average shot length had changed in film over the years. And yeah, sometimes CGI can be spectacular. The prawns in District 9 really blew me away at how integrated they looked in each shot.
21:14 - Zaphod I agree Joe. Movies should make you go 'whoa, how'd they do that?' every now and then. But if everything is done with CGI you never get that feeling.
21:05 - Ilham Yep. Bat your eyelids once and you miss the whole plot.
20:54 - !J.O.O.E.! Yep, it's fine in moderation when there's no other way but saturating films with tons of fake looking CGI is a bit of a scourge I think. That and overly fast paced editing.
20:46 - Ilham CGI is a tool, some use it efficiently, some don't. I have nothing against it.
