So true...

The better the plot and directing, the fewer cheesy special effects (example: Raiders of the Lost ArkBatman Begins). The more computer graphics and over-the-top action sequences, the sillier the plot (example: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal SkullHancock, Fantastic Four).

True? Not so true? What do you think?

  2. You and Brian had a conversation about this, huh? I totally agree...the graphics pretty much ruined I Am Legend for me. It's just so unnecessary most of the time. Why do you think so many directors choose to use it? Is it cheaper? Do they really think it looks better?
