When did PJ become so obsessed with CGI over practical FX, sets, and cinematography? Can't Post

While I am very excited to see this movie, I am concerned with Jackson's seeming obsession with CGI. The LOTR films were a wonderful mix of practical effects and techniques, real sets, location shooting, and so on. But these movies appear to be 90% green screen work and it is REALLY obvious. I hope the CGI we see in this trailer is unfinished, but somehow I'm not so sure. Why release a trailer for a major film with unfinished FX work? Why not show the best stuff you have that doesn't require such heavy FX? Show me Bilbo talking with Smaug, where you see the dragon only in shadow, etc. This is the first trailer for any of these films that has me feeling underwhelmed.

            Probably an issue of cost effectiveness and control, too. Kimtc Send a private message to Kimtc Jun 12 2013, 4:54pm
    The emphasis on CGI in the trailer, when the CGI is so blatant, really makes it seem like WETA demo reel... Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Jun 12 2013, 4:08pm

            True for the barrel ride, but it's also sunny/bright/bland Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Jun 12 2013, 5:57pm
    There's the same level of 'green screen work' as in LOTR sycorax82 Send a private message to sycorax82 Jun 12 2013, 5:19pm
