    What Is Up With CGI in Movies Lately?

    CGI is to modern films as peanut butter is to jelly. However, there has been a recent phenomenon of big-budget films that have unappealing visual effects turning people off of the film. Why is this happening so frequently? How do these projects get approved and released without anyone realizing the backlash it will face? Think: CATS or Sonic the Hedgehog

    • Totally an article we need. You could also look at the Transformers or The Hobbit series which rely heavily on CGI. Or, even better, The Lion King (2019). You could also mention films that use CGI well. For example, The Jungle Book (2016) excelled in the visual effects/CGI department. – OkaNaimo0819 4 years ago
    • You could also look into the process of how these films were made. There is a reason why making a movie cost so much. Also look into to the treatment of VFX Artists. In the case of sonic, the VFX team were overworked and some lost their jobs and in general VFX do not get the recognition they deserve. – Amelia Arrows 4 years ago
    • Cats alone could make an entire article. I mean, I'm a cat-lover, and just seeing the promotional photos turned me off. WAY off. – Stephanie M. 4 years ago

    That’s really interesting how they look into the mental illnesses that people actually go through rather than her just being the quirky and ‘crazy’ girl. I’ve never seen the show, but it immediately made me think of Netflix’s “YOU.” In that show, his past trauma and mental illness are touched on, but never expressly talked about. Which I think would be good to see, so I’m glad this show is doing that! Great article!

    You’re right, and I’m glad you said it.

    Why Solo: A Star Wars Story Is A Great Star Wars Film

    You genuinely nailed it. This is pretty much spot on to how I felt after watching this movie. I think the biggest issue with this movie (at least for me ) though, was the ending. If they had fixed the last 30 minutes the rest may have been forgiven. I left the theatre feeling confused and upset, which is the OPPOSITE of what Star Wars should be. That’s why I think they missed the mark. Amazing work though loved it!
