Mind Your Business: Best & Worst Animated Films of 2011
I put Paul in the list because the lead character is animated. I’ve seen this twice and loved it each time. Great character writing and design. A foul-mouthed, wisecracking alien is always good for laughs. One of the best comedies of the year.
After hearing so many people trash this movie, I went in with low expectations. That must have helped because I really liked it. Fun action, quick pace, great visual bits. Held my attention and had me giggling throughout.
I know, this isn’t a traditional animated movie, but those creatures WERE SO COOL! I watched this with a group of 12-year-old boys and we were pumped during it. Any movie that makes a big group want to sit and draw the characters after it’s over is a great movie. Cool popcorn movie at its best.
It’s got a funny title but I had low hopes. But, the animation is great and it’s a fun story. I enjoyed this movie.
It’s bigger than life. More action than anyone could ever ask for. Cool robots and a neat backstory. Oh yeah, and a really hot girl.
Didn’t see it…yet. Loved the character in the Shrek movies and the trailer looked good. DreamWorks does a great job with movies so I expect it will be pretty good. I’m looking forward to the DVD.
Of course, the best lists also talk about those that failed. There’re a few things I thought about when making the FAIL list. Did I fall asleep in the movie? Do I want to see it again? Did it suck? Here’re a few animations that didn’t live up to my expectations (in no particular order).
