The CGI is what really brings down the superhero genre as a whole for me and ensures it has virtually no rewatch factor.
It’s like getting upset that there are CGI soldiers in LORD OF THE RINGS, as if we should expect these filmmakers to hire fifteen thousand extras out in a field pretending to do battle.
It’s why I have no issue with the CGI in ESCAPE FROM LA because it’s intentionally going for a very campy and exaggerated vibe. Contrast that with something like the 1997 version of STAR WARS that featured an abysmal rendition of Jabba the Hutt, who doesn’t even look close to the original puppet.
When the quality's weak, I take issue with it. It's 2022 and some of these films look like they're employing CGI from the early 2000s. It's stunning. Regardless, it's subjective, and when CGI is dominating action through its movements and characters like that, I lose all interest.
But despite of CGI galores, I still liked the latest Dr. Strange film (Multiverse of Madness), I felt that it's one of the better films in MCU after No Way Home (which is one of the best).
I thought that the latest Thor (Love and Thunder) film had the bad use of those CGIs, you have a nonsensical story, then you have the overuse of CGIs that's all over the place, then it makes for a so-so film.
Good to know about Multiverse of Madness; I'd heard bad things about it but I do kinda want to check it out; it looks pretty cool.
I just revisited THE QUICK AND THE DEAD and had a fun time with that. The crash zooms are out of control at 2:20 in this video!
Black Adam has a ton of CGI that just seems so artificial that it's an over load. Now maybe the storyline wasn't as compelling as Avengers End Game, but I dare the former packed a big punch to me and I was invested, the latter I was a bit meh about the whole thing. I much preferred Christopher Reeve's Superman to Henry Cavill's. Mostly due to the over abundance of CGI. But again I found the Reeve's Superman movies (1 and 2) to be a better story than what we got in MOS.
Of course. As with all technology, it's at it's best when it's invisible, and just connects you to an experience.
It has to be good, or it sticks out, and takes you out of the story.
I loved it as an action film. Check out the Chinese cut if you can, it's way better and extended in all the right ways.
That sounds like a pun that would have fit seamlessly into Die Another Day
My thoughts exactly.
DAD did have its world premiere in the UK. You're quite right about the other two, though. It's interesting that they alternated.
Has his accent turned more English there?
I've been thinking he sounds more American these days. "whole lotta dynamite."
The only missing is the piano!
