If only they'd put as much work into the rest of the film-making process.....what an awful load of tripe!

That was an impressive scene though and great to see TP was used on it.

From the second article: "He came in pretty cynical about vfx in general – kept referring to them as “cartoons.”"

Seems like a bit of an insensitive thing to say if you're meeting a VFX producer about helping you out with your film that contains flying motorcycles and mutant powers.
Critcal feedback example #62: "Well instead of the Stalinist purges and the divorce and the investigation ... it could be about losing a balloon."

A bit insensitive? That's downright hypocrisy.

Or the utmost ignorance. VFX seem to be the only thing propping up the weak figure of hollywood. Because it certainly isn't the atrocious writers or directors. wouldn't it be a fine thing if some of that creativity rubbed off....

No matter what the movie told about,many people think its VFX is good enough. Perfect movie is difficult to be made.
