Meet The Robinsons


I was able to catch the ASIFA screening of Meet The Robinsons today and I had a really good time. I thought the movie was great and it brings me a lot of joy to see Disney back "in the game" as it were. Here is a quote from a review that echos my feelings for the film...

Cinematical: If you want your animated movie to thrill the kiddies, be sure it contains the following things: time machines, dinosaurs, robots and baseball. If you want your animated movie to appeal to the grown-ups that are required to get the kiddies into the theater, be sure it contains the following things: a clever sense of humor, some really impressive animation, a bunch of solid voice performances and a few life lessons that are sweet but not over-sappy. Then throw in a great score by Danny Elfman, an admirably speedy pace and more colorful characters that you'll know what to do with ... and voila: Disney's Meet the Robinsons, which is just about as good a CG feature as you can get without the words "Pixar Animation Studios" emblazoned across the opening credits.

Lastly I was excited to see the new Disney Animation Studios logo up on the big screen. It looks superb and serves as a nice reminder about how important Disney is to the history of animation...
