A few that come to mind...

  • Spirited Away
  • The Incredibles
  • The Iron Giant
  • Heavy Metal
  • Grave of the Fireflies
  • Perfect Blue
  • Fire and Ice (weak plot, but Frazetta + Ralph Bakshi rocks!)


  • A couple that are actually short series that probably don't qualify but I'll mention anyway...

  • Now and Then, Here and There
  • Serial Experiments: Lain

    Hey, Jason, you once recommended three anime movies: "Grave of the Fireflies",
    "Serial Experiments Lain", and "Princess Mononoke", but I can't find your post now. Anyway, two of them are great and I haven�t watched the third yet. Any new anime you watched lately?

    "Grave of the Fireflies" and and "Princess Mononoke". Great stuff, and good for kids also.

    I am currently examining the four volumes of Masters Of Russian Animation, will post my report when I'll be done with them...

    Here is a good short animation (warning: YouTube quality) based on Bukowski's poem "The man with the beautiful eyes".

    i enjoyed Ninjai. You can find it here. It is 12 episodes as of right now and all viewable from the web.

    I also enjoyed:
    1.Shrek (both)
    2.Toy Story (both)
    3.A Bugs Life (more for the outtakes at the end)
    4.Cars

    I actually enjoy pretty much all the animated films, as long as they have a decent story line and keep all ages involved.

    I didn't see it mentioned, but did no one enjoy "Dark Fury - The Chronicles of Riddick"? I saw Heavy Metal, I was sure someone would mention this.

    Edited to add the exact title of the movie.

    Marc, have you seen Ryan?

    I hesitate to recommend it to everybody, because non-Marcs might want this slice of their lives back.

    Just watched "Monster House" and it is good. It's too scary for children younger than 12, probably, plus there are some quite adult scenes that AFAIK parents in US prefer their kids not to see. The two policemen are hilarious and the end isn't something you would expect. I'll watch this movie again.

    Hi ranchers,

    have a look at this Academy Award winner:


    (Best gill breathing actrice 2003)



    From Pixar I liked "Finding Nemo" very much, and also "The Incredibles".
    007 and all that fantastical fours can just resign!
    And my mouse cursor is not an arrow but a little clown fish now:

    And really great music soundtracks, especially the sixties sound in "Incredibles".


    For the classical animated (painted) movies, I liked Mowgli, Bagheera, Shere Khan, Baloo and Kaa and all the others from the Jungle Book best.
    Shere Khan gave his name also for a character in Finding Nemo, and Kaa is appropriate for Python programmers (I'm not one).

    Finally: Wallace and Gromit. Plasticine rocks!


    Yours,
    Bu.

    I'm glad this thread got bumped, because I missed this post a month ago!

    No, I haven't seen Ryan, but it's definitely something I will devote a slice of my life to. Thanks for suggesting it!

    +1

    Expensive to buy, and probably impossible to find as a rental. But I would rather buy one great DVD than rent a dozen average ones. (I'm thinking in particular of Salesman, a late-60's documentary about Bible salesmen. For a long time, I held off on buying it because it seemed expensive, but it's priceless -- especially on repeated viewings.)

    Two more.

    1. The old man and the sea. A beautiful, albeit short animation.

    2. Prince Vladimir. It was made in Russia in 2006 and I don't think it is available in the USA, but it probably will. I liked it a lot. The plot is complex enough, interesting personages, and most important -- it's a cel animation and the pictures are very beautiful. You can see some shots on Russian Insider blog, this one for example (he has a seria of posts on Prince Vladimir).

    Yes, I also recommend "Grave of the Fireflies" for children.

    Warning spoilers:

    A Japanese boy tries to keep his family together in the final days of World War II as one by one they drop dead ... first his mother (see the maggots consume her rotting flesh!), then his father (by report of his ship being sunk, all hands lost). Finally his little sister, whom he swore to protect, dies of starvation and exposure. Despondent and hopeless, the poor boy finds sweet release with his own death on the floor of a subway station. Definitely kids' fare. It'd be a good double feature with The Smurfs, or maybe The Care Bears.

    Watched "Ratatouille" -- wow, this is wacky stuff. A rat preparing food at Paris' restaurant... hrm. I am all for equal opportunities, but you know...

    The local press reviews the movie incessantly for a week already.

    The animated rodent stars of "Ratatouille" don't wear clothing, live in little houses or walk on their hind legs. Even when they're acting kind of cute during one scene, the next might contain an image that's almost unnerving -- a pair of beady eyes glowing in the dark, or an army of vermin swarming a restaurant pantry.

    For six years, members of Pixar Animation Studios took classes at Bay Area cooking schools and channeled the artistry of Thomas Keller, the chef/owner of Napa Valley's critically acclaimed French Laundry restaurant.

    Animation World Magazine has an article about how the movie was made. It's amazing how much work it takes.

    Fans of non-kiddie anime or Science Fiction should check out Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society.

    Though it's still listed as a "pre-order" on Amazon, my copy shipped out today.
