Bolt = Resurgance For Disney??

Blue Sky had a screening of “Bolt” for the crew on Friday.  I consider myself a fan of Disney and what they do, but their past couple films have left me a feeling a little disappointed.  With this in mind, I went into the screening not knowing what to expect.  After the previews an animation from Mickey’s first appearance in “Steamboat Willie” was playing and the signature of Walt Disney was written across the screen.

This really caught my attention and before the movie even started, I felt like what I was about to see was going to be something special.  The opening sequence with Bolt as a puppy blew me away.  It was some of the best dog animation I’ve seen since “Lady and the Tramp”.  The pigeons were particularly noteworthy because their performance animation was new and refreshing.  Overall, I really loved the film!!  The story was clear and the characters were fun and appealing.  If you haven’t seen it yet…GO!!!  You won’t be disappointed.  Congrats to Disney and all who worked on “Bolt”!!

Wall-E Completes Me.

I’ve never considered myself a Pixar fanboy. In fact I will go so far to say that I’ve been secretly waiting for just one Pixar film to tank because everything they touch turns to gold. When I saw the trailers for Wall-E, I was like: “THIS COULD BE IT!!” Upon seeing the film, let me say that NONE of the trailers do the film any justice whatsoever. Without going into specifics, I never thought that I would care so much for this little robot. What’s even more amazing is that the animators make you fall in love with this little guy without the use of dialogue. Fantastic job, Pixar!! This ones my favorite since Monsters.

Hats Off To Dreamworks…

I’ve been meaning to post this for the past couple of weeks and I know its a little “after the fact”, but I was incredibly impressed with Kung Fu Panda.  If you haven’t seen it yet, you’re in for a treat.  This is not only a good animated film, but its also a good film thats animated.  I would even go as far to say that Kung Fu Panda is one of my favorite computer animated films of all time.  Well done, Dreamworks!!
