    I hate CGI with a passion because I can spot it a mile away. It doesn't matter how big budget a film is - it sticks out like a sore thumb and it utterly ruins the escapism of a movie for me.

    Just the title is a bad special effect.

    It wasn't a bad film, actually - I'd watch it again.
    (Besides, after getting entertained by Godzilla and Gamera movies for years, it takes a lot for practical effects to throw me off).

    The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl.

    The CGI in that movie (which was apparently made as a birthday present) is downright abysmal.

    :eek:...okay, not a good epileptic thread!

    Flashing things usually don’t work out well, we learned this one Christmas a few years ago.

    Carry on, I’ll visit elsewhere :p

    Who Killed Captain Alex, though it has a strong cult appeal for anyone into that sort of thing the visual effects aren't exactly Hollywood. The director had a very limited budget to work with though and the passion to see it all the way through.

    I can't link to the film due to forum rules, but you can find it on Youtube.

    I'm pretty sure some of the Children's Film Foundation films will count here - mainly as their movies were usually made in under a fortnight and on a budget supplied by a voluntary tax taken from all cinema ticket prices (tickets at the time costing sixpence).

    Here's a clip from Supersonic Saucer which I posted on a previous thread - with the "Alien from Venus" been portrayed using a mix of hand puppetry and cheap animation: Supersonic Saucer The Children Meet Meba

    Here's another from the CFF film serial, Danny the Dragon:
