Avatar and Computer Generated Imagery

I’m breaking one of my rules and going off topic for a minute.
Saw Avatar last night. Aside from the “Cowboys and Indians” meets Star Trek  thing(Star Wars?) , it really showed me what’s next and what’s possible.

Computer generated imagery has finally crossed the threshold of believability. The cartoony look of most animation is gone, replaced by subtle nuance of expression and movement (in the characters – the backgrounds are often less sophisticated)

Really gave me something to think about. Hats off to Cameron and his team.
I want to be blue and ten feet tall now.
