I'm not much of a film buff, I prefer the old classics to most of the modern stuff, but having watched a couple of films recently I can't help but think that CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) is ruining many good films. In the good old days they used stunt men to produce fantastic scenes whereas nowadays they just leave it up to the computer geeks. In the past they have produced what turn out to be more realistic films because while the stuntmen may have been attached to wires and had crash matts etc they did actually do what the films were showing them to be doing. These days because they use CGI for everything they don't need to worry about doing what might actually be possible. They don't need to because using CGI means that they can produce something that is completely impossible. I've watched Mission Impossible, Indiana Jones Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, James Bond Quantum of Solace and there are parts created by CGI are all so unrealistic that it spoils the whole film. I know that some of the older CGI was extremely poor (Hunt for Red October, Indiana Jones being chased down the tunnel by the rock being a couple). Don't get me wrong, CGI has its place but I seriously think that it's used far too often and spoiling many a good film. Even modern Thomas the Tank Engine programs are mostly CGI scenery instead of actual model sets. See attached stunt of old!
