Jerry Bruckheimer on LOTR - About.com
Could the advent of CGI be a danger to creativity if it becomes overused?
I don't think so. I think it just expands the horizons for filmmakers. When I saw Lord of the Rings I said, "Oh, my God, they created that character." It's so real.

I don't think so, but I think he was great. I think it was amazing what they did. Just the legions of those battles and just the scope of that movie, it just excites you. Any filmmaker would look at that movie and say, or even a kid, "I've got to get into this business." It's so visual now. The things you can do are just fascinating.
