Caught a few minutes of "Pinata: Survivor Island" ... these MTV rejects were being chased by a big thing that looked like the evil tiki statue from the Brady Bunch. It was horrible, the monster looked fake and didn't have any "weight" or presence in the scene.

The only good thing about that movie was Jaime Pressly in a string bikini.

I thought that every single thing in that movie was bad actually.

Horrible CGI is especially jarring when it appears in an otherwise good movie.

Like watching Spider Man turn into a cheap video game whenever he starts swinging from building to building, although that did improve in the sequels.

Or check out the scene from the first Harry Potter film, in which Harry fights a troll. It just suddenly turns into a cartoon.

Of course, the most wretched example I've seen recently was in Killer Bees with C. Thomas Howell. Bad, even for 2002. Saw a bit of it on TV earlier this week - a scene with bees entering a car through the air vents and attacking a guy. It looked like John Coffey just healed somebody under the dash. Of course the effect didn't look so bad in The Green Mile, because it was some supernatural thing. When it's supposed to be a swarm of real bees, it looks very bad.

I thought the CGI in Reign of Fire was pretty bad, along with the acting, dialog and plot.

There's a difference, to me, in expecting good CGI from a mainstream production like Harry Potter or Jumangi (if you can afford Robin Williams, spend more money to make a good movie) and V3 which is more like an amateur flick to me.

You mean "Deanzilla" from 1998 with the huge iguana in New York?  Toho is still making Godzilla movies and they all have CGI now (though the big guy is still a man in a suit).  Several of the newer Japanese Godzilla films are very good.  Check out "Godzilla: Final Wars" or "Tokyo SOS" - I have a review for "Final Wars" on the site.

I think these komodos need to leave this cruise.

Hey, everybody, I have returned! *looks around* Anyone remember me? ...Anyone?

Anyway, for truly godawful CGI, check out BLOODTHIRST 2 and KOMODO VS COBRA.

Supercroc (2007) - the first picture of the floating croc looks like a giant turd.  And when it jumps up & grabs a helicopter - everything goes completely blurry! Worst. CGI. Ever. (worse than Attack of Sabretooth, which I've also seen...)

The CG Zords in the Power Rangers movie are starting to look pretty naff now. Interesting how they originally blew our minds and now the Japanese men in suits in the TV show look better.

Ive only seen CGI work completely successfully where puppets and real props could'nt in one movie and that Is Transformers. Everything else needs to stick with the real stuff, because, this may come as a shock to some movie makers, but real stuff looks REAL! Holy SH!T!

Cgi and green screens are really overused nowadays. Thats why Black Sheep rules for being a modern movie and still having the stones to use puppets and latex instead of computer nonsense.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
