I think the best Sci-Fi films that use Special FX, use it to tell the story rather than rely solely on it to cover up the lack of plot and / or characters. Stargate, along with both Terminator and T2 are prime examples of how to do Sci-Fi the right way. At the opposite end of the spectrum are movies like the Transformers films. Add Michael Bay into the mix and you are going to have a pretty forgettable film. Personally, I have never seen the Transformer films, but I know that just the premise along with said director is enough to know it's going to be all about CGI and that the characters will have no development and are only there to bear witness to the spectacle.

I've often wondered what Stargate would have been in the hands of Michael Bay and how drastically it would have been. Hell, I've often wondered what the movie would have been in the hands of Roland Emmerich in this day and age of CGI-heavy flicks. I just prefer to have movies that give is rich characters and plot over the biggest and loudest explosions of the week. Is it all that shocking to say that The Rock is Michael Bay's best film? Hmmm...I wonder why. Maybe because he has to rely more or the characters to drive the story instead of over-the-top spectacle.
