Not all, most. CG was used in certain cases where models were too restrictive, and to tie things together, and do set extensions and the like. I'm all for traditional model work, but it's very ignorant to say all CG looks bad, especially when you're being fooled by it all the time.

Ignorant or not CGI looks bad more often than not and the more there is the worse the movie looks. You may love it, but I hate it. I am fine with it being a minor addition but when it is the main tool it makes for a terrible looking movie.



So much wrong with this post, especially when numerous examples have been given to you in the past that prove this to not be the case.

You can give me all the examples you like and it wont change the fact that traditional effects look significantly better then CGI in nearly every case.

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes v. Jurassic Park?

I couldn't eat any tomatoes for weeks after watching that.

I'm the same way about broccoli after watching one Powerpuff Girls episode.  Okay, I never eat broccoli.

Zombieland - dull

I'm glad to hear this.  I currently have a zombie/mummy movie ban ongoing, and I've been close to breaking it to watch this!

Uh, why, exactly?

Repulsion - Roman Polanski, 1965

Absolutely loved it. I would advise not reading anything about it - just come in fresh as I did. Polanski creates a wonderfully weird, creepy world full of reflections and skewed angles. I was shocked, aghast, mouth agape for pretty much the entire 100 minutes. 9/10.






Same with me. The silent bit where the wall opens up, still sends shivers down my spine!

Glad you liked it, one of my favourite psychological-horror films.

Nobody does it like Polanski, watch Rosemary's baby if you haven't already.

An Education

Just saw it though I have not yet listened to Adam and Matty. Really great performances from Mulligan and Sarsgaard and Molina. Ok so I had trouble believing her to be 16 but when has anyone playing a 16 year old looked 16 anyway. Pretty awful conditions in the theatre itself (some horrible problems with the sound) but overall I enjoyed the movie. As for the big tonal shift I've heard so much about in the final act there is a shift but I do not really see it as too big nor as really something unexpected. It's pretty much where the film had to be going, as far as I could tell. And of course I really love Nick Hornby though I have to say the performances here are the reason to see this film not it's script. I very good, though not great movie but you could see much worse and well actually at the moment not too much better.
