Movies like Sin city, Sky captain and the world of tomorrow uses quite a lot of CG effects in it. Do you like this kind of CG movie? Or you prefer the they don't use CG at all, just like the traditional ones?

I'm an FX fan, so good CGI is always fun to watch. When it's bad, though, it can spoil the movie. Sin City is one of my favorite movies, and The Matrix is still right up there with the great CGI.

Agree, Sin city is great but I don't like sky captain. Matrix I is the best, the sequels are sucks I think.

Sky Captain was okay, but it didn't impress me. I think the Matrix series went downhill, but there's still lots of eye candy that makes them worth watching. It's pretty rare for a sequal to be as good as the original.

I like as little as CGI as possible. If it's done correctly and efficently like in The Matrix than it's great. But The Hulk was just awful looking. I prefer them to try to do everything they can themselves (or stunt devils) like in Dare Devil.

But some movies can't be done convincingly without CGI. Compare the clunky FX of the past with today's CGI, and decide which is more realistic. Film makers' imaginations used to be limited by what they could do with a limited technology. Today, the sky's the limit. I saw Pan's Labyrinth last night at the theater, and there's no way some of that could have been done convincingly without CGI.

can it also be due to the higher expectations the audience has on the execution of some scenes? moviegoers are becoming more difficult to please, apart from the demand for a good story line. with the revelations made of how actors use wires and body doubles, it's more difficult now to suspend disbelief long enough to finish the movie. with CGI, though, the moviegoers get baffled with how a scene was made. and there are still a lot that can be done. what used to be beyond human capability in performing a scene is now "DO"able.. we are at an age where CGI's are acceptable. but i think, too, they belong to a different genre altogether compared with movies that would have better appeal if real people are in it throughout the movie.

I like a lot of movies for many different reasons. I love both movies that you mentioned and I really like the effects, but I don't think those effects should be used in every movie.

There are lot of movies in which they have used a lot of computer generated effects which I have liked watching. As computer graphics is developed today most of the stunts are done in studio and regenerated in outdoor place with graphics and does look good...
