Animation Shorts and Features
I looked up to see if a thread like this already exists, but I guess not in this exact form? Shorts or Features, show us the good stuff.
To start, let's talk about this years crop of features, specifically the submissions for Academy Nominations this year. How many have you watched?
[Top Hollywood Studios]
Toy Story 3 (Pixar) - This is probably the top of the list in terms of movies I have my money on getting the nomination.
How to Train Your Dragon (Dreamworks) - A departure from the usual bland Dreamworks fare. Chris Sanders dragon designs FTW!
Tangled (Disney) - Hasn't been released, but it is the next big Disney film to come out. Good or not, we still have to see.
[Indie and Foreign]
Summer Wars - Mamoru Hosoda I LUUUV you. Please get a nom for this facebook/Second Life/Gaia chaos and Crazy Relatives movie!
The Illusionist - Sylvain Chomet's new film, set in Scotland. Looks gorgeous. Want to see.
Idiots and Angels - Bill Plympton's new film. Looks a little different in tone than some of his other works.
My Dog Tulip - Based on a memoir of a lonely man and the dog he rescues.
The Dreams of Jinsha - Chinese anime-ish fantasy - Boy goes to a magic world, adventures ensue.
[The remaining handful of talking animals, comedian vehicles, and franchise randomness.]
Alpha and Omega - Talking wolves.
Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore - Talking cats and dogs.
Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Gaâ€™Hoole - Talking owls, but pretty.
Megamind - Super Villains + SNL cast
Despicable Me - Super Villains + Little kids
Shrek Forever After - Another one?
Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue - My mom and I wish Tinkerbell was actually gay with that other fairy and that was the plot.
