More often than not these computer animated movies are actually really good. I'm honestly surprised at how some of these movies look. Some are just ok but then some are stunning. I'd put Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs in the later category. I know, it sounds wierd to praise Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, just typing that seems weird. I guess I'm supposed to write about the typical good movies or something? Nah, son.

I think these computer animated movies work on so many levels. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is a visual feast (in more ways than one), it has really clever funny jokes, and a simple, yet really good, story. I found myself really amazed at how good the film looked. I also saw it in 3d so i guess that just makes it better too.

Anyway, if your'e in the mood for a great looking animated movie with a great sense of humor, check this one out. Or you can watch 9 but I don't see anything great there. Tim Burton, suck it...until Alice in Wonderland comes out.

The Beginning: Making Episode 1
The Beginning: Making Episode 1

It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.

I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
