Do you prefer movies with practical effects or CGI?

Do you prefer movies with practical effects or CGI? I love practical effects because it often looks more realistic to me. CGI has a long way to go before it looks 100% real, but honestly it's already close to realistic enough. Especially with how the likes of the Mandalorian is made on that green screen stage thing. I can see more movies and shows utilizing that. 

But, what do you prefer?

I don't mind either but too much CGI could be a deal-breaker for me. I have seen plenty of movies in the modern day where it was overdone and done badly. I think the height of movie-making was in the late '90s and early '00s in terms of special effects.

Even though I'd go for practical effects over CGI, what I'd prefer most is the culmination of the two in movies. At one point, CGI, during the early 80s and 90s, was not something I was too interested in, but in the coming years there has been a vast improvement in the scene; movies have taken to using both CGI and practical effects together and made some outstanding scenes. And even as I'm writing this, it still depends on how the creativity and potential of the effects have been used by the masterminds behind them. They can either make it better or worsen it.
