The problem with computer generated effects is that they give people like Michael Bay and Paul Anderson the illusion that they're as capable of making "Big" movies as folks like Ridley Scott, Steven Spielberg, or (pre-Titanic) James Cameron.

Most of today's big directors substitute emotionally-appropriate soundtrack for the actual creation of mood, and substitute CGI effects for creative/unique filmmaking.
