You must be joking. ILM became famous for their practical effects in the seventies. That was fantastic. Apart from T2, their CG looks more rubbery and fake than the puppets that made them famous. Their work in the Potter movies and Star Wars prequels leaps off the screen as being particularly cheesy.

By way of contrast, see all the effects in Starship Troopers and Game of Thrones.
