 I was looking forward to this movie at one point and then completely forgot about it.  

Any fairy tale that will erase this season of Once out of my mind.  It doesn't even warrant a review on this site anymore.

 The CGI looks a bit shoddy.  I'm not ever going to forgive Singer for that Musters remake TV fail.  Once you see it, you can't unsee it.

I think it looks fun.  Might take my son.

Looks ok, the giant CG looks very CG, no realism to the final rendering at all. They are missing that real look render to a lot of CG in more recent films. Don't know why they don't aim for that? It is possible. There are some shots in Avatar that look 100% photo real, not every shot by far, but a few you cannot tell are CG, its just that real.

Maybe that should be the goal now with CG? If you're gonna do it all CG fine, but at least have the final render look like its in the real world. Not all shiny and plasticy!?

Another great example is transformers. The first movies CG was is in some ways better than the 2 sequels. If an autobot or decepticon had a matte finish as their vehicle form, then the robot form had those same surfaces. How ever in the sequels they seemed to be all shinny once in their robot form, regardless if that surfaces was matte to start with. Best example is the helicopter decepticon (forget the name). His transformation is the city in the final battle looks so fricken real. It was perfect.

This is coming from a guys who's very pro practical as I'm an FX makeup guy myself.

Agreed ,but flesh is the hardest to do by far.

Hmm... Yeah, this one looks like a rental or dollar theatre at best.
