    Who says you need CGI and special effects to make a great film.All you need is a good story and a couple of great actors.
    What a fantastic film it still is,just brilliant.

    Amazing film. Can't help but watch it when it shown on TV. The world around me just disappears for the duration of the film. :smashin:

    One of my all time favourite films and it is finally going to get the DVD treatment that it fully deserves next year with a special edition release as it is 10 years old

    I love this film too. Is it worth waiting for the special edition rather than buying it cheap now ? Is the current version bad ?

    P.S. Don't want to appear dumb, but what is CGI ?

    You never find out if you don’t ask.;)

    CGI, Computed Generated Images, or very similar meaning it is where they insert it into the film for effects. I think the film Shrek was pure CGI(not cartoons). But some films use little bit mixed with real action or footage. If you seen Daredevil or Spider-man you can spot some scenes where they use it. DD the bit where he more or less jumps up a wall in the ally or SM the scene where the Green Goblin is flying in on the sled over the skyscrapers also a lot of SM swinging about on his web.
