Well hold on, if given a director who knows what he's doing (And I'd argue Peter Jackson knows what he's doing) and a decent script (it's Lord of the Rings. Whatever your personal feelings about the novels, you can't deny they're excellently written stories) Nick Cage can actually be a really good actor. It might have been a little bit worse, but it certainly wouldn't have ruined the whole movie.

Well yes, but imagine the movie was made without the green screen. Now that would have been difficult.

it obviously isn't as difficult otherwise they would have never opted for cgi

I'm not saying it isn't extremely difficult, I'm just saying that in order to make a film of equal quality without a green screen would be almost impossible and the people that managed to do so were geniuses of their own. A perfect example of this would be Bram Stoker's Dracula. As such CG can be seen as "easier" not implying that it is easy at all.

No, they opted for CGI because it's cheaper than having to spend money on custom props.

Because you know, movie productions have budget, and money doesn't grow on trees.

While I completely understand your point as a film maker, I (like most people) enjoy authenticity. I would much rather buy an authentic vintage car rather than a newly built replica just because it looks better.

I completely agree. I hate it when people blame CGI on the movie's script or the direction. But for Star Wars Prequels, people are not blaming CGI on the movie, they are blaming the fact that George Lucas relied completely on CGI animation that he's only offering eye candy rather than giving a proper screen play, writing and direction to tell a story. Brainless followers will just take half of what is the truth of the critics and summarize it to CGI screwed the story up.

where does it say anywhere in that post that the green screen was the easy way out? the only mention to it was george lucas standing in front of it. to me this post was saying, "hey look what we used to have to build to make it look worse then when we put it all in green screen.

calm down dude, no one here is attacking your major

Even the greatest quality stuff I've seen that was added with greenscreen.....even though it looks great, you can still tell that SOMEthing isn't quite right. It sometimes is enough to distract from the movie. Sometimes I miss stuff like Jurassic Park 1, even if stuff is only robots or puppets and stuff it can still look 100% real. CGI isn't quite there *yet* I don't think.

Having said that though, I think when it's good that stuff is amazing and even if it's bad I feel bad for the workers who sweated their nutsacks off with probably a ****** budget or something and now everyone thinks CGI is cheap and stuff like that, I do admire what they do and I hope someday they can make everything look as real as real life.

I know that's a porn reference, but I've never seen the porn featuring that couch.
Source?
Preferably a full vid.

The Return of the Jedi one about Spielberg is just ******* weird. That's not a fact about a film, it's likening him to Einstein which he clearly isn't....
