Graphics in movies is just an other reason for Hollywood directors to be more lazy on creativity in a film.
Loserboi

Con

Why shouldn't movies rely on graphics? it saves time writing a long script, and saves time and money hiring top notch actors and actresses. Graphics are enjoyable to watch and its been proven in many movies.
Transformers revenge of the fallen widely criticized for a lack of script and bad acting by critics and even the actors themselves but still racked in over $800,000,000 in the box offices. This shows people just don't care about the acting as long as it's enjoyable to watch

in response to loser boi:But that's the thing though. If you really think about it, Hollywood is just a bigger version of full blown capitalism. Most of the directors usually just hog the money that they make from the films and never regret if people had to see a badly made film that relied on graphics to much. But hell, if that is the case, at least one thing they can do is rely on acting and the story to put on a hell of a show and make it feel like wasting money on that certain film worth it.

Graphics can put on a hell of a show. Special effects are a big part of any action movie and most action movies requires very little acting at all just a really good fight scene and a lot of explosions. Most people just want to skip the entire story line and move to the big action scenes in a movie. Directors like Michael Bay understands that and just makes movies to please the audience not the critics. If people are still paying to watch a movie just for the effects, they obviously enjoy it.

Loserboi

Con

Graphics are enough to entertain an audience and sometimes its more preferable than hiring a bunch of high maintenance actors and actresses so for the sake of convenience and time on directing these drama queens hire decent actors and surround them with great explosions and lighting effects. Hollywood movies are moving towards the future and that future is improved graphics so relying on it is not a bad idea if the box offices prove people have no problem with it.
