** While we're on the subject of Alice in Wonderland, BKN Animation's 2008 film "What's The Matter With The Hatter?" Seems like you average cheap mid-to-late 2000s direct to video childrens CGI movie. Then you realize that ALMOST EVERYTHING IS [[CelShading CEL SHADED]]. Alice stares at you with wide, soulless eyes, her mouth movements are erratic, and the Cheshire Cat...!!

** The biggest problem with this is at the beginning of the movie, we see a flashback of Flynn while he was young which used CLU's CG facial model and it's exactly the same. The problem is in the eyes and eyebrows. Clu (And flashback Flynn) have a solid immovable brow and their eyes almost never widen the way Jeff Bridges do and did in the original film. The lack of emoting is the biggest problem with the CG model. That's fine for CLU, but makes no sense for the younger version of Flynn!

* The Na'vi in ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' had an odd, shiny skin tone (although this is actually RealityIsUnrealistic and closer to real life than most films). The movement physics can be seen as differing from human, being more flowing, although this is to be expected considering the difference is size, strength and a completely different environment for movement. The actors specifically had to move in a different way to humans - it's likely that if they walked in a human manner, people would complain more.

Added DiffLines:

** Not only that, but the movement very closely mimicked the movement in the original cartoon specials, which is choppy and rough and can be quite off-putting to a lot of viewers.

## His eyes are often hollow and he ''never'' blinks. ChristopherLloyd only blinked between takes or when his face was out of frame.

* Martin Freeman's character in ''Film/WildTarget' has an Uncanny Valley look about him thanks to his capped teeth and creepy smile.

* The unnaturally toothy smile of one of the titular characters in ''Film/TheAdventuresOfSharkBoyAndLavaGirl'' (guess which one) is surprisingly disturbing. [[spoiler:This "uncanniness" is largely subverted as we discover that, despite his unnerving appearance and personality, he is in fact a [[GoodIsNotNice good guy]].]]

** Technically, however, neither The Thing nor Dr. Doom qualify for "Uncanny Valley" status as both are indeed played by real-life humans simply wearing costumes, as opposed to being partially or completely rendered in CG.
