    I miss old style sci-fi movies so much. Today's are so devoid of juicy essence. In the old times, there were no great special FX, so they had to compensate with envolvement and story.

    Totally right. A good script and great actors always beat a CGI-fest movie anyday. This is one of my faves from the 50s and it's a lovely clear copy..

    I like the movies nowadays more then they used to be (atleast with a lot of movies). One of those reasons it's technology simply said.
    CGI and a/v quality makes it more emersive then it used to be.

    Ofcourse script, sounds, visuals, acting etc... matters too but almost every (if not all) movies use some sort of CGI to make it more realistic.

    One of the best examples of CGI usage comparisons are ofcourse Star Wars, Star Trek and James Bond.
    Even tho Star Wars already had great CGI for it's time, looking at them now and comparing the visuals, sounds, looks etc... is much much better.
    James Bond one of the biggest changes of movies throughout the years in my opinion. Looking back at the beginning movies and the once now, it's for no doubt much more realistic looking now and a much better story and envolvement then it was in the beginning movies.
    I'd rather go for "Nostalgia" which makes the old movies better, then rather better story, acting, or anything else. :p

    As long as we are not talking about Jew Jew Binks I mean J.J.Abrams, mister pathetic idea stealing piece of shit, it's okay :D. I concur with temp and blast rather. And yeah great CGI we do have on some great movies like Star Trek... ooops sorry I mean it was total bullcrap, both of them... And ofc the Farce Engorges, shit I mean the Force Awakens. They done fucked it all up big time.

    James Bond the only one yet not fucked up. But ofc soon a black dude will play James Bond ain't no fucking CGI gonna save that piece of shit then.

    Btw isn't this topic meant to go for movies conversation? :D Maybe make like a movie review corner? Would be fun!

    Movie Review Corner would be good - we all love our movies so should be very popular. No spoilers though, just observations :)

    no need to make everything sticky. Would make a messy overview. Sticky should only be important posts that are absolutely necessary for people to see.

    Well, i think this could be down to how people enjoy movies. Like girls, do you prefer them full of plastic, looking great, but no essence, or looking decently good and have a personality? Very few movies can combine great specialFX with great essence. Matrix for example.
