The 10 Best Films That Combine Live Action With Animation

Thanks to a little something called CGI and its overuse by modern moviemakers, almost every film featured at your local Cineplex contains some animated element. That beautiful rendering of your favorite city or countryside? Digitally tweaked. That stunning car chase or impossible stuntwork? Aided by computer-generated vehicles and characters. So we aren't going to address this approach.
Instead, we will concentrate on those "old school" examples of live action merging with cartoons. In some cases, the real world is a mere bookend for the pen and ink intrigue presented in between. In other cases, both the real and the rotoscoped are combined in completely creative and clever ways. There are some obvious examples that everyone points to (so do we), but we've also uncovered some forgotten films that tried to use the concept for equally idealized reasons. The result is our 10 Best Films Combining Live Action with Animation.
