Well the thing that gets be is Wall-e cost 180 million. I never knew CGI was that much, I thought they used CGI in movies now to save money on filming on location. It is insane. Even just 5-10 years ago a BIG movie would only cost 100 million.
Well, CG isn't cheap, it's just you can do more for what practical effects would cost. They even mention on the Stargate Continuum commentary that it's the only thing that hasn't got cheaper in the 12 years they've been doing Stargate. "When we first started it cost $50,000 just to have someone step through the gate, and now it costs $50,000."
