i want to know what you guys think about the future of cg movies in the industry. even though traditional animation is dead (imo) and everyone (disney and stuff) is switching to complete if not majority CGed (is that even a word?), …
i know it’s been a while but since Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within flopped at the box office, i was wondering if it gave cg movies a bad rep, and the studios won’t risk making more big budget cg movies…??
i loved it just BECAUSE it was cg, i HATE the games I HATE Turn based combat, and have no idea what the games are about, but i liked the movie. what was it that made it a bad movie according to the critics (even though Ebert and Roeper gave it thumbs up) and ppl
i know Shrek, Finding Nemo and “Cute characters+adult humor with semi cheap lafs” fliks which are entertaining work (almost a safe bet for the studios), did well at the box office(the polar express is comming in 2004 but i think that’s also geared towards a younger audience). but they kinda don’t count, because of the fact that they were gonna get made with or without cg (using traditionl animation). but stuff like FF targeted towrads 18+ or even 16+ audiences isn’t that common (CG).
do you have the answer? will most ppl here be homless by 2008?
