ritesh kalati, CGI = Computer Generated Images.

what about Wall-E? :)

This is truth. But is there a point where CGI becomes truth?

This is split for me, it's a comment on my art and medium. I agree with your veiled comment about the industry, so yes, CGI can get in the way of story - but if you get the writers (real writers) and artists involved then the result is not so bad, sometimes it's even fun, superficial, but fun.

Is it ok to share this post on tumblr like this:

Let me know if this is a violation and I will remove it.

Apologize in advance if this is wrong.

You would hold your head up and roll over in laughter if you see the CGI and visual effects in "Wanted"... it fits in the very tail end of the curve here! :-)

or Wanted... what a let down. The previews looked so good.

Liam said...

I weep for what the Matrix Revolutions might have been, had they limited themselves to the same budget they had for the first movie.

JN said...

So true !

Let's spread the note in the French web ;)

this is probably true of Wanted, or Jumper or movies like that. but some are actually pretty durn good. i've actually heard that Hancock almost has too much plot, with like a bunch of stories going on at once.

side note: i don't think wall-e really counts as a CGI movies. cgi usually references digital inserts into live-action movies. where as pixar stuff is all computer animated. but i'm just thinking out loud

T Cooper said...

This definitely doesnt refer to films made completely with computer software, just the live action superhero movies with lots of cg added.

But this does tend to happen, Typical conversation during movie:

"Umm.. what happened?"
"I dunno but that looked cool"
"yeah"

Michael said...

Wall E doesn't count. 1. Not superhero movie. 2. It's pixar, which defies the CGI/plot trends (why they rock)

Whats funny is how this applies within a movie. Somehow as a movie progresses, cgi increases, and plot decreases.

"The Incredibles is a notable exception."

Because considering X = CGI and Y = Plot, Pixar would be a dot located on ([infinity], 0).
