RAD VIDEOS: WHY DOES CGI SUCK?

So many movies in this day and age suffer from bad CGI, but is all CGI bad, or just the images you notice?

Most of us hate CGI, yet without it we wouldn’t have a lot of the biggest blockbusters we have today. No web slinging Spider-Man no planet destructing aliens from ID4.

It’s easy to mock Michael Bay for his Transformers series, but merging his robotic CGI monsters with practical effects is clearly his best asset. On the other hand, the much loved James Cameron is one of the best film makers of our generation, yet Avatar‘s CGI aliens stand out like a sore thumb.
