Yeah, I know a lot of movies are missing from the list--that's just the IMDB quick search. Things like Hellboy, V for Vendetta, Sin City, 300, and so on. Can't believe Batman 1989 got skipped. Ooops. Yes, technology makes effects cheaper, easier, and better. In 1985, it took a cray supercomputer to render the FX for The Last Starfighter. Now just about any PC with capable for running Maya can do the same thing. Unfortunately technology isn't enough. Aristotle listed spectacle as the last and least important of the 6 principles of theatre.
