I was reading an article by Roger Ebert about the likelihood of Andy Serkis getting an Academy Award nomination for his performance as Gollum in Lord of the Rings, when the topic of "the uncanny valley" came up. I'd never heard of this before, but it's a fascinating explanation and study of how we as humans react to entities which have some amount of "human" characteristics. Definitely worth a read.
