Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheByeByeMan'': It's obvious that the Bye Bye Man's dog is really poor CGI.

* ''Film/FlashGordon'' has a lot of effects that look very shaky, probably due to the sheer volume of effects shots needed in the movie.

* In ''HighSchoolMusical 2'', during the song "Bet on It", Troy looks at his reflection in the water, and the "reflected" image is the same as the original, i.e. it's not mirrored. You might not notice it the first time, but it still looks ridiculous.

** ''Film/TheMummyReturns'' has two instances. DwayneJohnson's CGI form as the Scorpion King looks like something out of a videogame cinematic, and when the armies of Anubis attack, many of the jackal soldiers in the background phase through the actors, or die without having been attacked.

*** During Anakin and Obi-Wan's final duel, there's a moment where Obi-Wan leaps off a tall structure and lands on a small platform floating above the lava, where he then switches his lightsabre on. The problem is you can ''hear'' the humming of his blade during the whole scene, as if it was supposed to be on the whole time.

** ''Film/RogueOne'' uses some very impressive CGI to make stand in actors look just like characters whose original actors are either too old or outright dead. However, despite the clear amount of work that went into them, the way some of them move put them very firmly into the UncannyValley.

* Basically anything toted as a "Sci-Fi[=/=]Creator/{{Syfy}} [[Film/SyfyOriginalMovie Original]]". Particularly bad in Sci-Fi (or Syfy, for the move VD inclined) sequels to big-budget theatrical releases. ''Dragonheart'' had the main dragon splendidly rendered, scale by scale, while its sequel had a scale textured but smooth and shiny skin on the MarySue replacement.

* The scene in ''Film/ExMachina'' where Ava [[spoiler:takes arm and skin from Jade. Jade’s Asian skin becomes Caucasian once Ava applies it to herself. Ava's normal torso looks like a busty woman wearing a bra and clothes, rendered in chickenwire. But when ''applying more material'' (skin from the spare android) she turns into a woman with smaller unsupported breasts. This comes as consequence of having Ava's actress (Creator/AliceVikander) actual nude body as her skinned form, while her prior robotic torso had been CG rendered.]]

** Now, now, ''Epic Movie'' had some pretty awful Special Effects Failure on its own. One {{egregious}} one was when [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Jack Swallows]] is breaking [[TheChroniclesOfNarnia Edward]] out of prison, where he pretty much just swings a plastic brown dummy with a featureless brown head around. Its foot even bends ''backwards'' at one point. Website/TheAgonyBooth [[http://www.agonybooth.com/recaps/Epic_Movie_2007.aspx?Page=7 had a field day]] with this.
