Oh, that was character development? Gotcha.

Also, the majority of CGI in this film is indeed photo-realistic; not all of it, but the majority of it is. Those computer clock cycles and terabytes of information are not going to waste. Gollum's face is incredibly detailed, with the tiniest of crow's feet and eye and face wrinkles.
PJ is definitely paying attention to the details, here.
I expect the avatar sequels to be even better.
If anything, I wish films were filmed at 60 fps, not 48 fps.
I am very much looking forward to the blu ray release.
This is what the movie is all about.
I'm a fan of the opposite. I prefer low tech films with good plot structure, dialogue, and story-line. I much prefer plays to movies for example. I think all the high tech "stuff" just gets in the way and is pretty annoying to be honest.
