I have to agree with this. I find myself liking movies with less high tech stuff better than the ones with special effects behind every corner. One exception is the first Matrix movie.
The first Matrix movie oozed style. That was something special.
Actually, I just remembered... District 9. That had fantastic visuals and was a great film. And if I'm honest, I enjoyed the War of the Worlds re-make. So, there are some films drenched in fancy graphics, that I do like.
