20 benchmark CGI movies?

Personally, I’m not a big fan of massive amounts of CG effects in movies–a little is okay, from time to time, but if you can’t do it with wires, cables, a bucket of fake blood and a dude in a rubber suit, my philosophy is maybe you should rethink the effect.

I agree with most of what they came up with (although movies like Beowulf, Speed Racer and Avatar aren’t even out/made yet). I just wish they had included The Great Mouse Detective, which was one of the first Disney movies that blended computer animation with traditional 2-D animation…
