When you are enjoying a movie, how much of it is real?

Boardwalk Empire, is an interesting series set in the 1920s. It's on HBO. 
Sure I was aware of extensive use of computer graphics in SciFi movies, but I had no idea how virtually any movie, TV, or Internet video might be either cleverly manipulated or totally fabricated. 

 ALMOST NOTHING YOU SEE ON TV OR IN A MOVIE IS REAL 

 This video shows scenes from the TV show boardwalk. After watching this, probably only about 50% is real.  It's incredible how much of each scene is created by computer graphics.
