I've worked in the CGI industry, and sadly never been impressed with the quality of ultra-realism used in movies like the Kong remake. Technically impressive yes, but as you say, lacking humanity. The problem is the difference between modelers and animators. The old fashioned animators spent hours on end adding that humanity to their characters. The modelers want realism so much they forget that animation is so much more than an attempt to create reality. I'll take O'Brien and Harryhausen over CGI any day.
