    1- Couldn't agree more, he is not even close to being funny.
    4 - It wasn't too bad, but very overrated- Also when it came out it had the best CGI VFX.
    Avatar's effects were brilliant, if I was ranking on effects alone, it would be a top film.

    It's just a shame they couldn't have used more of that large budget on the plot!

    Did you, at any point, think that this wasn't CGI? No? It wasn't the best.

    Yes I did, and the quality of CGIs is not necessarily how they look( though in Avatar they were pretty good IMO)
    The quality also depends on the motion of objects, non-repetitive behavior in different situations and interaction of objects in the environment. So in Avatar they had at least 10 main objects( the aliens, the big birds, the predator animals in the jungle, air crafts etc) and they were all unique ( not simulations of pre-existing objects from earth, although they were inspired by them to some extent ). and they perfectly fit in the environment.

    So I think yes, it was definitely the best the year it came out ( in the category of visual effects )
    let me know what other films had top CGI
