* ''Film/TheBelkoExperiment'' involves office workers with bombs in their heads. Well, time comes that a character is picking the bombs out of dead character's heads... and it is ''plainly'' obvious that they are nothing more than small ball bearings from a hardware store. They made literally zero attempt to hide it, either.

*** The "organic" test for the matter transporter has an obvious CGI chimpanzee that is far less impressive than the ape effects used by ''Film/RiseOfThePlanetOfTheApes'' from the same studio.

* In ''Film/NineLives2016'', Kevin Spacey-turned-cat is trying to prove he's human, so he does some pull ups to show his family. Said pull-ups are just one shot of the cat slipping off of a bar, reversed and repeated to give the illusion of a cat doing pull-ups. [[https://youtu.be/_jHA97HzhxE?t=2m15s It must be seen to be believed.]]

** There are several scenes in the movie where you can clearly tell that Tom's (Spacey) cat form had CGI animation used for it.

* ''Film/CSATheConfederateStatesOfAmerica'' has, for the most part, decently faked historical footage. One of the opening shots of the film, however, is of a now-CSA-branded NASA rocket. They did a fine job digitally replacing the letter... but they used a typeface that didn't match (Helvetica instead of the square-edged Eurostile).

* ''Film/InTheNameOfTheKing: A Dungeon Siege Tale" had one in the climactic battle scene, no less. The arrows that the archers use are obvious CGI.

* ''Film/InHarmsWay'' was praised for its excellent acting and storytelling, but is infamous for the extremely fake-looking model ships used in the sea battle scenes. In fact, starring actors John Wayne and Kirk Douglas were embarrassed at how badly the naval scenes compared to the rest of the movie. It's rather sad, really, considering how much they tried to avoid [[ArtisticLicenseShips another trope]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/StrokerAce'''s blatant use of real-life crash footage during their racing scenes. The change in camera quality makes it obvious that they are using footage from actual [=NASCAR=] crashes, and the different cars and raceways only cement the fact. This could be [[JustifiedTrope excused]] by crashes in [=NASCAR=] being extremely dangerous to replicate using 1980s' methods without putting both the stunt and the film crews in serious jeopardy.
