And, if you have a favorite live action movie that you think uses outstanding CGI effects, by all means, add it to the list.

Some of the best live action films with manage to be compelling and real without overdoing things. In some of the greatest films that combine live action and CGI, the scenes using computer generated images are so subtle, you can't even tell. A really well done CGI/live-action movie combines incredible technical wizardry and realistic-looking details to enhance a movie, not overpower it. Michael Gondry's 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' and David Fincher's 'Fight Club' are great examples of this. Sometimes, less really is more when it comes to CGI.
