The Lyrics

Part of my "World Go Boom Supplemental" self-challenge. Just because something looks pretty on the big screen, doesn't mean it excuse the poor excuse for a plot. Hence, this parody. Enjoy!
Sure they're shiny, they look nice
Though sometimes I do get tired
So I have to criticise
CG when the use is high

Director, sure the CG looks good
Don't mean the film is too
It doesn't balance out
Those graphics are just money wasted
When animatronics, look as good, no doubt

Pretty, pretty please, don't rely on the CG
Can't hide bad scripts with those effects
Audiences pleased, though the plot is much like cheese
Holes can't be filled with special effects
Trust me

There's no need for it all
Don't need to render that rock
Follow Pixar: story's king
CG's not flashy bling

Money is wasted
You're fine with the product
But the critics hate it
And you wonder why
It's just fluff
Just pointless shiny fake stuff
Won't drive the plot forward
Wow factor has run dry
(Ohh ohhhhhhh)

Pretty, pretty please, don't rely on the CG
Don't hide plot rifts with those effects
Av'rage people pleased, but the critics always tease
You're remembered for just the effects
Trust me

You want that flare but the cost is too dear
I wonder what the hell you're thinking, should lay off the beer
The render lines takin' time, time, time
Time that we don't have
And it is drainin' our dimes
Please listen to the critics, cause they know their shit
Don't make films for cash, make the plot focused
They will admit that the CG's pretty nice
But the plot is crap, characters are crap
So you should fix that

Oh pretty, pretty please

Pretty, pretty please, don't rely on the CG
Don't hide bad scripts with those effects
Sure, it makes money, but the critics are not pleased
Put the plot first, not the damn effects, trust me
(The effects, your defect)
Audiences pleased, but the critics rate it 3
So just stop with the special effects, trust me

Nice job, and I agree with the sentiments wholeheartedly - 555. Now all we need to do is get P!nk herself to sing it to the offenders - that should scare the bejaysus out of them :)
