I don't get why people complain so much about using CGI. I'm guessing they would have complained about the use of matte paintings in the "old days" (if they knew what a matte painting was). After all, matte paintings weren't real sets or miniature models! *gasp*

I think it works best when it's a combination of both actual models mixed in with CGI..
I'm no expert, but the open scene of the Star Destroyer in The Empire Strikes Back .. it's just so sharp.. crystal clear ..or the Enterprise in Star Trek the Motion Picture, I know there is some great CGI out there (along some really bad stuff too) ...but I don't know if CGI can match an actual model ..and the lighting ..

Yet .. actual models .. can't do what CGI can do either .. think of stop motion compared to the fluid CGI movements of the Tri-Pods in War of the Worlds ..

I think they both have there place and work best when they are combined ..

I'm not trying to offend anyone ???? But yes, why not ? .. I'm not knocking CGI, but like anything else, nothing is perfected and all have advantages and disadvantages. It's a tool like anything else, albeit a pretty amazing tool! It's all about picking the right tool for the right job, right scene or frame.

Again, I want to be careful with this, I'm not looking to cause an argument , this is a really nice site with lots of good people, who are always out to help one another .. I just wrote my opinion ????

I wasn't trying to start an argument either. I was commenting on the reason the thread behind the second link was started.

My point is, people get worked up over the silliest things in life.
