But even in the 80's which you mentioned, they still used practical methods in sci-fi, especially in model work for space craft and the like.

I like the Marvel films. Avengers Assembly was terrific, but others are just so CGI heavy. I zone out of them when they start throwing buildings and planets at each other.

This new one where Captain Marvel saves the day...It won't be long before Galactus twats everyone using planets in a universal game of ten pin bowling.

Maybe i just prefer my superheroes to be more grounded ala the Keaton and Nolan Batman movies.

Thinking out loud now. TV stuff like Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl are also FX heavy but in moderation. It's all so less in your face. Maybe they should cut Marvel movies budgets by 100m or so?

Sure they could easily cut the budgets ,but sure a lot of the time cgi is cheaper than pratical, but I do think the likes of horrors should use practical effects as cgi always looks lousy in them.

Oh definitely. CGI blood spraying is an embarrassment. The Midnight Meat Train was practically unwatchable due to shitty CGI blood.

Nope they aren't , and that also besides the recent gripes are part the reason why a lot of films are failing at the box office, companies think they can cash in on franchises anyway they want and expect a win win situation and doesn't always work like that, hence also the recent announcement from Disney over the star wars films realising now they are pushing them to much that people are getting bored and its effecting people flocking to the cinema so they are going to slow down on them and to much of a good thing is becoming a bit of a mistake

But back to childs play in the link it also explains Mancini and Dourif are concentrating more on getting the TV series going

reported that Dourif won't be reprising the role for the Child's Play reboot. The actor and Mancini are instead focusing their efforts on getting a Child's Play TV series off the ground and running for Universal .
