My point is the PT didn't wow...at least when compared to the OT. Nobody had really seen anything quite like the effects of ANH. It was innovative. The PT, by comparison, was not. Jurassic Park owns the honor of showing a new tech to the masses. Lucas himself has said he waited until the tech was advanced enough for him to tackle the PT and Jurassic Park was showcase for that advancement with the PT following its lead, so-to-speak. Yes it improved upon things and wowed people in the sense of "yeah it looks cool and intricate" but it didn't innovate, it wasn't special. The OT did and was. I pretty much agree with everything that's been said on both sides of the argument for effects in the ST. I really think that real stages looked more realistic then a purely CGI ones. You also have to take into account what the actors said about the experience. Some voiced complaints for what I guess would be described as lack of human interaction emotion and soul. I think most people would agree that the best would be a fair mix of "real effects" and CGI, with the CGI being a complimenting element instead of the whole damn thing.
