Might want to leave MUMMY off that list. I know they had no time to do the scorpion king right but regardless of circumstance that stuff was an utter suckfest. A lot of bad matte shots too (which was even more true with JP3, though I wonder if those were farmed out or done by ILM ... the rest of their work in JP3 and most of JP2 is to my eye excellent, though I was never as wowed by the first one, where things just seemed to look, well ... texture mapped.)

I think a great point to remember is that VFX are often only as good as the Director/Studio who approves them and this is why some of the best VFX houses have work that we dont always love.

Remember its a business for us vendors so often when a director says final we dont touch it again even if we know it could be better. If we always went back on finalled shots we would lose even more money
