CGI used in movies

One thing that makes or breaks a movie for me is the graphics. If I am constantly aware that I am watching imagery that someone created on a computer it is a complete disappointment when watching a film.

Recently I saw District 9 and I was very impressed with the graphics. Everything looked real and in the right place and I didn't even think "Wow those are great graphics" because I didn't notice them right away. The graphics had an ability to trick me and transport me into the film.

Of course in a few years I'll look back on this and technology will have advanced so much farther I might forget why I was so impressed, but that's kind of how it is with any aspect of technology. Right away it is amazing and new and the "it" thing, and before you know it no one finds it that intriguing and it may even be obsolete.
