Why do the new Star Wars movies have to have so much computer generated images? No matter how impressive the new cgi characters seem, I can't get past the fact that its not real. I would prefer a human being in a costume to a lifeless cgi Jar Jar. Even the new cgi Jabba the Hutt looks bad compared to the old puppet Jabba. Atleast the old Jabba the Hutt from ROTJ looked real and tangible compared to the new Jabba from TPM. The Phantom Menace might as well have been a cartoon. I just wish that Lucas would stop trying so hard to impress the audience with new computer image technology. I think that a good story with deep, interesting characters beats cgi anytime. But since Lucas will be directing the next two movies I will ultimately have to set myself up for another BIG disappointment. Its a shame that Irvin Kirshner will not be back to direct.
