does this community include being against this disney pixar cgi crap? i hate this cgi kids movies now. i miss the days of 'the lion king'. everything now is made by computers, and i think it is quite unattractive. i don't watch those movies because for one they are ugly, for 2 it seems less lovingly crafted, and for 3 i hate this urge to always be on top of the new technology, even when it isn't better. seriously, 'toy story' was interesting just because it was new. now it isn't, and we should make hand drawn and cgi movies equally.

Ok, so I will say that alot of asian movies have gotten the right
amount of cgi figured out. If you ever watch Casshern, and I suggest
you do, it is apparent what I mean. All of the actors are real,
the environment is real somewhat, what is nice is the environment looks
real but most likely isn't. Almost dreamlike. As an avid movie fan, I
like to be able to focus on the plot rather than how bad the cgi is.
Heh, oddly enough, when trying to find a picture to post here I found
out that dreamworks has bought the rights to this movie as is in talks
to make an american version Aaaaaaahhhh!!!!! That will suck, they will
probably screw it up big time. bleh.
pictures from movie on imdb
My favorite ones are the moon and there is another scene not shown
where they are walking around in a forest and it looks so magical.
There are those who will claim that a dislike for computer animation stems from technophobia. This is not necessarily the case. It is an aesthetic preference. The majority of the time when CGI is used it is obvious and simply ruins a scene in a film for me. For example, the CGI animators have yet to make human movement look right. The motion is too fluid.
Live action films have begun to resemble cartoons and this is detrimental to the integrity of that medium. The other negative aspect to the predominance of CGI is the threat it poses to the skilled artists and artisans that have worked to create animatronics and other movie magic over the years. I fear their craft is endangered.
