Completely agreed.
I never knew the things you point out were CG in TDK, so it shows how well it is done.

Slightly offtopic; I just recieved and read The Phantom Annual #2(Moonstone) guest-starring Mandrake. Very fun read!
I'll be getting it when the series relaunch. The fanboy in me would love to see a Phantom/Mandrake movie one day, but that's not gonna happen since the rights are with different companies. Last thing I heard of the Mandrake movie was that Jonathan Rhys Meyers is starring. I hope the film will happen, as a new Mandrake movie is long overdue.
