    Hmmm, it's a tough choice. I think I would have to pick Batman Begins because they used very little CGI in that movie. If you watch the making of features on the 2nd DVD you'll see that they used mostly models. It was interesting because some scenes that I thought were CGI were actually models. My choice is Mr. Nolan's movie. Sorry Mr. Disney, Mr. Spielberg, Mr. Lucas, Mr. Jackson, and Mr. Newell - you guys used just too much CGI in your movies. Sorry Mr. Burton, but I think the new Batman was better than your over-the-top vision of the dark knight detective - not to say it was bad which it wasn't if compared to those made by Joel.
