Examples of that: no matter how good is the virtual reality rendering in those recent movies, acting remains detached from the environment. It's the chroma key syndrome. Besides, the overuse of video game-like action sequences in contemporaneous movie making is becoming really boring, and this is from someone that is young enough to have played first-person shooter games somewhat avidly. All the tech wizardry in these movies feels a lot like those jazz fusion songs of the 80s that were probably fun to play but were not so fun to listen to.
