Silly Computer Graphics

Whats so great about computer graphics in a movie??? I've always wondered, why people like to see the artificial world of computerized animations and fake scenes created only for soothing your eyes. I understand if it is a cartoon movie. But in a normal movie with a dedicated hero and a heroine, what role do these graphics play?? Many people keep saying: 'the movie was good, it had a lot of computer graphics'... Yeeeeks.. This statement sucks hard. Hardly anyone talks about acting!! You need to be skilled enough to show that you are a BEGGAR, when in reality, you are a MILLIONAIRE. By praising unreal fiction, are we not moving towards an artificial world?? Something that makes us dwell in the (un)realities of an imaginary belief...!! In fact, the recent trend of movies is -- getting closer to reality. Also think of the many many television pro grammes that show the whole world what goes on in REAL LIFE. In spite of all this, I wonder what people like in a movie that's full of graphics.. If this continues, our definitions of entertainment will be far away from reality and practicality. In my opinion, entertainment should be close to our own life. A little deviation for the sake of adding spice is still justified. But then, when things go beyond reality and we as humans start praising virtual reality, certainly, something is wrong.... This might just be the reason, why TV soaps are far from reality. They try to grab your attention by showing what you are something that only fits in our imagination. May be a situation that you are always afraid of, or something that you only feel is possible, but have never encountered. Now that's what I call unreal... No logic.. Plain emotions. Same is the reason, why TV news channels rely so much on useless and crap news being aired 10,000 times a day. This is one big reason, why I like plays and stage performances. Lets hope things get more REAL than far-fetched.....
