CGI Vs A Good Story

The picture above is of the new Battleships (2012) movie that every one is taking about, but is good GCI all a film needs to be successful, do we not care about the story of a film or is the CGI a cover up for the fact they could not think of a decent script. This film looks like it will make a lot of money off curious people but the main part of the profits of films comes from DVD sales and merchandise, so is big visual effects the way to go.

  Were as a film such as 21 Jump Street (2012) have made over $100 million without the big focus on CGI, but would the likes of Terminator 2 (1991) or Jurassic park (1993) have been so successful without the GCI? There have also being many flops with the latest being the John Carter (2012), but maybe it is not the GCI that captivates us the most but the practical and original uses of it.
