First Things First
A few not so random comments at this late hour.
I didn't mean for the comments here to turn into a huge debate over whether CGI is good/bad/ugly/real/, whatever. I was merely excited about the possibilities open to people who are interested in film. I don't dislike low-key pictures, or anything of that sort. I have extremely wide ranging film tastes and I do enjoy theatre. But the thing that turned me into a film fan was the original Star Wars trilogy. For that reason I will always have a love for FX, spectacle, and visuals (hence I'm also a visual artist, in the loosest sense of the word, and enjoy drawing and such). I however can be a huge paradox and love the most simple character studies, such as Before Sunset or Sideways.
Which leads me to my next post.
