Man, I was so peeved when they took that off the air... logged on and sent a complaint that evening, which I never do! :P

But if it's coming to DVD... now that's something I could get happy about.

Saw it yesterday with my siblings... awesome . It wasn't the sort of movie that overwhelms with emotion (well, it didn't to me at least... not the way The Lion King did when I was 8 and Iron Giant did when I first saw it) but it's really well put together. I read the review in my paper yesterday mor...

I liked it - it wasn't packed with funny, but that would have been exhausting. I'll keep my eye on this one, because there were some great things peppered in there and I'd like to see more. Besides, claymation on primetime warms my heart.

BFF?! *gak* Well, at least it isn't CGI. That way there are real human beings instead of disproportionate monstrosities like the dolls. Otherwise it's looks to be your standard "high school drama for teenage and preteen girls" movie. I'm actually a little relieved... I heard about this before and as...

Y'know, if this thing fails it certainly won't be for insufficient advertising, like Meet the Robinsons or TMNT... Shrek the Third is everywhere I go! Props to their marketing department, at least. :P

I never watched that... hrm... but it does remind me a lot of the Limozeen cartoon "episode" on homestarrunner.com. Wonder if it's what they were making a parody of?

Though I actually have that song on my computer somewhere... pretty classic '80s sound. I love it. :)

This is gorgeous stuff... my sister is getting home in a few minutes and I can't wait to play the trailer for her. She owns a mouse and loved the mouselike behaviors they gave Mrs. Brisby in Secret of NIMH ... I can only imagine her reaction to this. :) Remy is adorably rodentlike. And man, the text...

I remember that too!

Both obviously have great qualities. But yeah, one of the things about stop-motion animation that impresses me the most is it's straight ahead animation, all the way. There's no opportunity for keyframing like in CGI or even hand-drawn animation. And that obviously requires a good sense of motion on...

I know sometimes there are subtle alterations on the WB logo for some movies - I seem to recall the Harry Potter WB logo tends to be kinda silvery to match the title text (if memory serves me correctly). And the WB logo before TMNT was greenish, with fog around it. I remember being entertained by To...

What a good show. I watched that all through my younger years... and the first time I saw Levar Burton on Star Trek it was more like "hey, it's the Reading Rainbow guy!" rather than the other way around, haha. It never occurred to me exactly how "late '80s/early '90s" that music was, though. :P Gott...

*snort* I remember seeing that when I went through the trailer frame by frame... had half a mind to turn it into a sig or something. Poor squished rodent and his glassy eyes... :P

...Or better yet, take that clip and loop it, with a squeaky-toy sound effect edited in... X)

I still believe it's all about story. They could have taken the kid's stuff out, put more violence in, and it still could be a lousy film. (NOT that it was, I haven't seen it, so I can't make any judgements! :) ) Well, I would argue that the monster subplot was kinda geared toward keeping-the-kids-...

Every time I see a high-def image/video of Ratatouille, I want to pick up and squeeze Remy... he looks so soft, haha. I'm really loving the textures and lighting that I've seen for this movie so far. Pity that I'll be home for the summer by the time the 9-minute preview comes out, and back on dialup...

Another problem for anime in the US is the cruddily-dubbed imports slapped on Saturday morning TV, edited so heavily that not only is there anything left to intellectually stimulate the kids, there's hardly any coherence left to the story. So the general public dismisses it as "that weird stuff with...
