Honestly, for a big blockbuster movie it felt small to me. None of what you've mentioned IMO would justify a $200Mil budget. It's all stuff that's been done before, cheaper too. I mean What We Do in the Shadows had a revolving corridor scene, and that movie had an extremely low budget. Direct to DVD movies have huge explosions in them, they don't cost $200Mil. I've seen modestly budgeted movies with CG equal to Inceptions.

$50 Mil for Dicaprio is insane though.

That said i just picked a couple of examples at random, ones where I felt the money wasn't up on the screen, i don't want this thread to turn into people trying to prove me wrong for my examples, i am more interested in other (better) examples, such as the one above.
