The final product being the result of something tangible. Films that I loved as a kid such as E.T., Indiana Jones and Terminator had a certain magic attached to them because what we were seeing on screen was solid and real, not pixels formed into a 3D image by (highly technical) post production manipulation.

I believe I formed this opinion after nearly being put in a coma by Transformers 2 and ruining a piece of my childhood by watching the Star Wars prequel series. (Although I know everybody loved Jar Jar Binks). Please Mr. Abrams bring the magic back!
