CGI

Avatar: visually very nice. It’s good to see that we’re past the Uncanny Valley. The story wasn’t anything special, but this film should be remembered for its innovations in CGI if for nothing else. I did wonder, though: where did Sigourney Weaver find a Stanford t-shirt sized for a creature ten feet tall?

Speaking of CGI, Deus Ex managed to startle me with the poorness of its graphics. It’s easy to forget how much progress a decade means in computer gaming until you go back and look at what was once state of the art. Aside from a somewhat idiosyncratic control scheme, though, it remains a great game.

150 years in the future, dude, she just brought a shirt off the “basketball player” rack.
