The overall CG never got better than the first Avengers film, after that it just became a cartoon (Which was okay for Guardians/Thor)
Gaith said:Wow, some folks are really particular about their CGI. Apart from maybe one or two brief animal moments, it never jabbed at my suspension of disbelief, nor did I at all mind or even notice the Norway field in Ragnarok. Maybe I'm easily pleased, and am a poor judge of CGI, or maybe I have a superior skill of getting into the story, and therefore not caring. (I sometimes think similar things about acting performances - is s/he giving a bad performance, or a good performance of someone who happens to not be particularly expressive? Few people in real life are as interesting to watch as Meryl Streep or Daniel Day-Lewis, after all. Lots of people are just there.)
The Last Starfighter has glaringly bad CGI, as does the climax of Species, but those days are objectively long gone. And it's not my place to tell anyone their reaction to modern effects are wrong... I'm just glad my enjoyment of flicks aren't so dependent on such technical factors.
bionicbob said:But what really prevents this movie from being really great is the formulaic plot structure. Storywise, for me there was not a single surprise or plot twist. The screenplay safely checked off all the boxes of the classic hero's journey 101. Don't get me wrong, it is expertly executed, and as I said, it is entertaining, but I did not find it gripping or tension filled. I give it a solid B rating.
