This has straight up made me evaluate how I've thought about the last decade or so of movies, like holy crap. Like I knew there was some bullshit involved with the anti-cgi sentiment in the last few years, but I didn't know how much it was. My thoughts before going into this is "movie effects haven't gotten better in twenty years" but I think I'm totally wrong, they're just more invisible.
There's a lot of labor implications to invisible cgi too that he's not gone totally into yet but that's probably in the 4th part. I also find it charming that he clearly loves big fake looking cgi stuff that has gone out of favor, to the point of thinking that the trinity explosion in Oppenheimer needed more cgi. Like he's wrong but that's extremely charming
