    I don’t understand how this relates to my point, which is that it’s perfectly unsurprising that the killing of children should garner more attention than other kinds of murder, tragic as they may also be. It feels bizarre even having to explain something so self-evident.

    What do you think is hypocritical about finding school shootings more viscerally shocking than other kinds of shootings? Don’t most of us react this way when we hear of harm befalling children as opposed to adults?

    Soarin Over the World, percentage of CGI?

    Which is a fair point if one feels that the film should have been entirely real. For me (and others like me), that isn’t a concern.

    What a baffling and wrongheaded deduction.

    How is it strange? You yourself broadened the context:

    Soarin Over the World, percentage of CGI?

    I absolutely understand why you feel this way. Again, my issue isn't with people disliking the current film, but with the untenable idea that we're dealing with a low-grade lazy product. Whether one likes the new version or not is really a matter of personal taste rather than of quality. For...

    Or we could return to the topic of the treatment of presidents in recent history. You didn't comment on the links I provided.

    My point is that they're not cutting corners, but rather using CGI to achieve something otherwise impossible. The problem (if there is one) is with the aim itself, not the method. But yes, I don't think the discussion is going to get anywhere.

    Some of the shots involved would not have been possible to capture in real life. You are fooling yourself if you think otherwise.

    Soarin Over the World, percentage of CGI?

    You're missing my point. The filmmakers clearly wanted to show things beyond the scope of even the best nature documentaries. You cannot fly a camera over a herd of charging elephants and expect one to shoot earth at precisely the right moment. It's simply not possible. The use of CGI in such...

    Soarin Over the World, percentage of CGI?

    I know I'm describing two different scenes. How does that undermine what I'm saying? The details I described would be impossible to capture in real life. You can't tell a whale to jump at the precise moment you're flying over it or an elephant to spray you with earth. It seems that most people...

    Soarin Over the World, percentage of CGI?

    I'm talking about the addition of details that would have been impossible to capture in real life. It would have been easier and cheaper to just leave the footage as it was rather than introduce elements like the whale jumping in front of us or the elephant spraying us with dirt. People may find...
