I strongly doubt that LotR didn't want to show off with it's VFX. You could have used much more "appropriately".

I do not know what you're saying, but there are numerous techniques. (maybe HDRI?)
And who says that it has to be 100% real? As long as it looks good or realistic or appropriate or whatever, I don't have a problem with workaraounds.
You know, films with real sets are not even lit realisticly! There are simply not 50 suns of various sizes in real life....

I think there is the problem. Nobody said something about CGI sets. I simply said animated.
Do you think CGI is worth less then traditional animation? I'm not assuming anything, I'm asking you.
And BTW, I was referring to the Rabbit himself.

You know, I think this is leading nowhere, you won't let go of your point, I won't of mine. And I don't want a 'real' fight here.
So I'll just try leaving it at that and enjoying the great score!
