sno man: To The Escape Zeppelin!: John Carter wasn't a very good movie but the CGI was incredible. This list had less to do with CGI and more to do with the writer liking or disliking the movie.I think the author had issue with the believablity of the freakishly huge jumps John Carter was making, even more than the quality or not of the movie, story or the balance of the CGI...
sno man: Earth's greater gravity isn't greater enough for that. He couldn't even pull that off on the moon....
vrax: Tsar_Bomba1: And I'm probably one of a few, but I thought CGI Fifield was more terrifying than practical effect Fifield.Absolutely! After I saw the cut scene I was thinking "WTF?! You guys cut this?!?!" This was definitely a case where the CGI was the better option, in every way, by far! Ridley was wrong.
Mentat: Dalek Caan's doomed mistress: Just whiny fanboy biatching. The movie was actually fairly decent. Yes, it's a comic book movie and it is a Spider-Man reboot, but they handled it fairly well. The Lizard has always been a silly villain, there was never going to be any escape from that, but he worked out fairly well I thought. I actually prefer the new version over the Toby McGuire version, and I hope Sony kills Gwen in the next movie or two. There's no point in introducing her unless they plan to have her neck snap.My issue with the Lizard in the movie is that they tried to go for the Intelligent Velociraptor version and instead ended up with King Koopa. Otherwise though, I was fine with it. Especially Emma Stone in thigh-high boots.
Dumb-Ass-Monkey: WORST: John CarterAndrew Stanton's Martian mega-flop gets a worse rap than it deserves, and parts of the movie look beautiful. But boy, they really could have done without Taylor Kitsch's super-jumpsyeah, because that's totally not part of the books or anything...
Ann Coulter's Diiick: Obscure Login: Prometheus was one of the worst? What the hell were they watching?The movie sucked but the CGI was some of the best I've ever seen. That movie was gorgeous.I didn't...hate...it when I saw it in theatres. After watching all 8+hours of BTS stuff and watching it again, I had a massive newfound appreciation for the film. It's not perfect, by any means, but it's not as meh as I originally thought. It sits with you for a while and lets you wonder. I actually like that a little bit.

Rev. Skarekroe: Also:WORST: PrometheusRidley Scott's huge pale-as-snow bald ''engineers'' could have looked threatening, but nope, they just looked horribly unrealistic, bulky and glassy-eyed. Noomi Rapace ripping that twisty alien baby out of her belly with surgical help? We concede, well done. -Solvej SchouI believe the Engineers were a practical effect using costumes, not CGI.[s3.amazonaws.com image 509x960]
