The great thing about Zatoichi was that they used CGI for stuff that would realistically happen, that I wanted to see - but couldn't practically see any other way. Unlike the more stylized fights in The Last Samurai, I thought the sword fighting in Zatoichi was the best combination of realism and choreographed swordplay I've seen. For that, I forgive the obvious CGI limbs and blood.

When I watch something like Kill Bill and the editing is obviously done so that the cuts coincide with, well, the cuts, I feel a bit robbed of the moment.

I would like to see more careful merging of practical and computer effects. In the original Matrix, I thought this was handled very well - within the Matrix itself... it was tragic that the "real world" ultimately looked more fake.
