    Default Favorite CGI character?

    Lots of movies out there, lots of TV shows, etc... what is your favorite CGI (Computer Generated Character)? For me, I'd have to say while he didn't make much of a 'physical appearance' the Eye of Sauron from the Lord of the Rings Trilogy was awesome. One of my favorite scenes in any movie is when the Eye turns to gaze upon Frodo and Sam as a battle is about to begin at the Gates of Mordor.

    Fantabulous stuff.

    Jar Jar Binks............

    Just Kidding....

    Scooby Doo..... seriously they did an awesome job with SGI Scooby and Scraby. Also Lion from Lion, Witch and wardrobe was pretty cool.

    ^^^ Kinda sounds like seasons 9 and 10 of SG-1 to me. Thor, ya got Aspirin?

    AGateFan has officially Gone Fishin (with Jack, Sam, Daniel, Teal'c) and is hoping Atlantis does not take that same hairpin turn.

    ^ AH yeah, Hexadecimal from Reboot. I used to watch that years ago! Would love to get a hold of the series from somewhere. I never did get to see the final season .

    My favourite character is Captain Scarlet, from the new CGI series.

    The Jurassic Park dinosaurs weren't completely computer generated. There was a lot of use of animatronics as I recall.

    Smeagol/Gollum hands down, but its a real shock to find out how much of him relies on Andy Serkis acting skills rather than CGI.

    Gollum was good

    I'm with you on this. I've seen equal or better animated creatures but none I've loved as much. He makes the cutest sounds.

    That squirrel from Ice Age is pretty cool too.
