Return of the King
Return of the King won an Oscar and closed off one of the major fantasy epics of our time. It also, I am sorry to say, includes some less than stellar CGI from the once-dependable Peter Jackson.
While the director managed to integrate CGI, costumes, and practical effects to fairly good results, there were the odd moments: like the bit where an obviously computer-generated Legolas runs along the back of an oliphant. The Hobbit films would become even more notorious for defying physics, but in Return of the King. that CGI looks so bad because elsewhere it’s so good. A grave disappointment, indeed.
