Also chiming in to say that CGI isn't a problem. Abusing CGI is a problem. Low quality, obvious CGI is a problem. Michael Bay at his best and Peter Jackson at his worst are the problem.
Many uses of CGI today are so subtle that most people don't even notice it is there. It is phone lines removed in the background of a historical scene. It is establishing shots of Victorian London from a distance. Good luck finding a film in a theater that doesn't use at least some CGI.
