I apologize if this subject has been brought up, but… you have got to see this movie. It’s wonderful. No songs, no stupid talking animal sidekicks…
The movie actually manages to make some good moral points without smacking you upside the head (I’m even pro-gun-rights, and this movie didn’t anger me though it was anti-weapon), and it didn’t bother to pander to children, even though it was at an understandable level for all… which was wonderful. It was intelligent, clever, cute, and the main characters actually had foibles that made the movie difficult to watch at first (Hogarth’s gimpy front teeth - cute, but I have a teeth thing and crooked teeth hurt my soul). Romance? Not hit over the head with it, but it’s there.
I haven’t had a lump in my throat during a movie for a LONG time, and this movie did it. It’s remarkably endearing, and I’m so glad that we got it on DVD.
Go watch it. It’s gotten rave reviews, but WB hasn’t managed to advertise worth a crapola, so I’m attempting to spread via word of mouth. It’s an amazing movie.
And the animation? Ooh, the pretty 3d… and the sound… and… wow.
Excuse me while I drool.
