Very interesting article from the guys on Rocketstock: 10 Reasons Why CGI is Getting Worse, Not Better https://www.rocketstock.com/blog/op...l&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer He brings up a lot of good points, namely that there are a lot of movies that have been made in the last few years where it seems like the entire point of the film is the computer-generated visuals. Story and character are kinda going by the wayside in favor of killer visual effects. I'm a big fan of CG done well, where it's precisely blended in with the visuals to the point where you can't tell where reality ends and fantasy begins. But I have to say, being pounded by 2000 explosions, buildings falling over, the Golden Gate Bridge collapsing (yet again), thousands of people dying... it gets exhausting after awhile. And I also think too often, directors immediately reach for a digital solution in post when it'd be a lot more organic to just fix it on the set. People forget that just a good story can be very entertaining. It's not a good trend. Don't get me wrong: I love well-done visual effects, and I have pals who are fine artists doing impeccable CG work in service of the picture. But I think even they'd agree that there are limits where relying on VFX alone won't make it a success.
