stevekimes will be watching Don Knotts triumph





This should be a triple dictation along with Pete's Dragon and Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

I didn't know we could dictate partially animated movies!

Pete's Dragon is amazing.

are partially animated ok. i thought of pete's dragon but i don't consifer it anoimated because only one character is animated. limpet is fully animated when it is animated.

I would stick with Limpet, it is more of an animated film than Pete's Dragon

Lord of the Rings is okay, unless you compare it to the recent epic.  It's worth seeing for the animation, anyway, which is interesting.

The animation is why I chose it. The ringwraiths scared the bejeesus out of me when I was little. To me, Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly owe a lot to those strange animated/live-action combos of the '70s. Also, it's a fun compare/contrast exercise with the Peter Jackson movies. Jackson has said that he threw out the imagery of this cartoon when designing his movies, but he admits that he lifted at least one iconic image from the beginning Hobbit celebration.

Maybe I should revisit it, but even as a kid I found it to be pretty lame.

It's not good. Toward the end, apparently when they were running out of money or time, the plot is jagged and nonsensical. Without knowing the books or Jackson movies, the viewer is left to wonder what the hell is happening. The first book, The Fellowship, is represented pretty well, but when they tried to cram in as much of The Two Towers as they could, it dissolves.

However, the animation is really, really interesting, and I think it deserves to be watched for that.

Movies I want to watch before the Animation voting:

The Adventures of Prince Achmed
Fetiche
South Park-- no, I haven't seen it.  Nor even the tv show.  If I watch it, it is only because it's a forum favorite.
The Little Island
Monznosti dialogu
The Tale of Tales
Street of Crocodiles

EDIT: Wrong place, will put it in the other thread as well.

Oh dang, I missed out on this.  Anyone else late to the party, wanna pair up?

I already did mine so could do another if you want. I havent seen a lot of animation though.

Sound good Colleen?  I'll add it to the list.

Is this happening?

I'm still good but Colleen has been MIA for some time.
