Heck even the original Star Wars holds up better than some CGI from the prequals.
The best use of CGI is when you dont realise its even being used, in the background not in your face.
I'm kind of glad this Wolverine had a smaller budget so that it cut out some of the nonsense CGI like Origins and we end up with something like Logan V Shingen, ten nay a hundred times better than any CGI could ever do.
