I also enjoyed that movie. The forgetful Dory was hilariously funny.

It's hard for me to pick a single favorite, or even a short list. There's been such a rennaisance over the last decade.

Nick Park's stuff, of course.

As for big studio commercial animation, I thought "The Incredibles" was the best Pixar feature film. Curiously, "Nemo" was my least favorite by far.

And "Jimmy Neutron". Gotta love Jimmy Neutron.

Without doubt. The 3 I listed are the first that came to mind, but there are so many good ones.

Even though it's a "hybrid", I'd say yes.

It's also on my list of favorites.

Does "Team America" or "Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit" count?

I am also surprised that "Princess Mononoke" didn't get a mention.

But of course. Stop-motion animation is still animation.


I am also surprised that "Princess Mononoke" didn't get a mention.



Despite prevailing attitudes, I personally think that Mononoke is one of Myazaki's weaker efforts. But I know I'm in the minority on that one...

Hmmmm. I quite liked Antz as well, and South Park is a good one. Probably one of the Wallace & Gromit films for me though.

Now that you have mentioned nostalgia, I remembered some animation films which used to be shown way back in India made by films division, I guess indians who have seen those would agree they were some of the best irrespective of the lack of quality animation.....

1. Tree of unity
2. Meenu Machli [Meenu Fish]
3. I do not quite remember the name of the Film clip but it went like ek machili, anek machili - [one fish, many fishes]

My Favs......

Marc, thanks for recommendation -- "Waking Life" is something. I am terrified to think that I could spend all my life without watching it Subsequently I read that Linklater just made another movie, A Scanner Darkly, and watched this also. It's as good as "Waking Life", some would like it even better because it's more a traditional sci-fi movie, but it's very good.

Have you watched anything of Jan Svankmajer? Thought you might like it.

Ice-Age Part-2. The female mammoth which grows with the rats, thinks itself as rat and behaves like a rat. It was very hilarious.

I'll try to look all highbrow and say Belleville Rendez-Vous and Spirited Away. Both are amazing, but my real (guilty) favourite is probably South Park, The Movie.

I recently saw "The man who planted trees" - WOW! Each frame is hand drawn. The whole thing is like an amazing piece of art. And the story really struck a chord with me. Fantastic. And netflix has it.

Toy Story and Shrek are good. 1 and 2.

Ghost in the shell is good.

Too bad there was never a movie for "The Tick" or "Invader Zim."

How about "Aladdin"? Or "Mulan"?

I saw "A Scanner Darkly" and I would like that slice of my life back please!

I have seen Mulan and its not that bad. The animation looked good and the bad guy looked really cool. Nice story line and neat animation. A touch of eddie murphy for the little dragon adds humor along with the other characters.

Nobody for Fritz the Cat? Heh heh.

There is an international contest for animated shorts. The "best of" collections are pretty amazing. I caught one in a theater in Greenwich Village but haven't seen them around out here in the sticks. Anybody know the name of the thing? French, I think.
