4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Some Would Lead You to Believe, June 26, 2005
This review is from: Waterworld (DVD)
First off, I love the premise of the film and the musical score by James Newton Howard. It took me about two complete watches until I finally began to enjoy it. I liked how they used very little special effects and actually built everything you see on the water. The lack of CGI sets, vehicles and explosions are what caused Waterworld to be one the most expensive films ever made. Almost everything on screen was built by man, which is great in a world full of digital effects taking over the story in most flicks. This is one that I watch at least twice a year and it is worthy of any DVD collection.

You are so right!...When I saw it in the theater, said WOW, everything really exist. This film was better than 20 CGI Sci-Sfi movies, he had a lot of daring stunt men, clever designers!

Yep, CGI has ruined many movies. I figure it won't be long before they begin using cyber actors to save even more money, and they wonder why our economy continues to dwindle. It's called fewer jobs, and handful of rich fat cats that will own it all. There will be less variety, less jobs, less realism, less quality. More plastic, more fat, more carbs, more filler, more pollution.

Great post. Never thought about CGI in that way, I just thought it was a means to an end; but it's obviously a way to funnel revenue to a smaller spread of deeper pockets. There won't be too many more gritty, tactile movies like this or Mad Max.
