Although there’s still an ongoing debate about virtual effects being better than practical effects or the other way around, it’s undeniable that the 2 create the “movie magic” on-screen that blurs the line between fantasy and reality. Either way, both double the fun and entertainment that keeps audiences in awe and on their toes.

1. Tatiana Maslany in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law

Computer-generated imagery, or CGI technology, is no stranger to modern films and TV shows, especially in the sci-fi and superhero genres. Like Tatiana Maslany in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the original Hulk, actor Mark Ruffalo, also acted with CGI.

Dumbo, the flying elephant, is just one of the most adorable animals in movie history, with human actors behind it. This technique is used often, especially for family films like The Jungle Book.
