But the old ones are brilliant. Maybe I'm unduly sentimental because I grew up with them. But there was nothing like them and there's been nothing like them since in terms of story and cinematography and yada yada yada.

I think there's a special magic in the old ones just for the scale of them. With the new ones, all the crowds are CGI. All the landscapes are computer and it just doesn't feel real. Give me a tall dude in a furry suit any day rather than a character honed for years by computer engineers.
