animated meme from figgylicious from weetanya...

1. What was the latest animated movie you've seen? Did you like it?
Shrek 2. I was kinda disappointed, actually. I mean, it was funny and all, but I got that same feeling that I got after I watched the first movie... I mean, it's all very funny and clever and witty while it lasts, but after it's over, it just all seems like an excercise in vanity and technology rather than a real story. I thought the first Shrek movie was better, but both leave me with a weird empty feeling, like watching it was a pointless waste of time, even though they were good for a few occasional laughs.

Antonio Banderas as Puss was the movie's saving grace, I think.

2. What is your all time favorite animated film?
Disney's Robin Hood, where all the characters are animals. That has got to be the best Disney cartoon of all time. Beauty and the Beast comes second. But Robin Hood has this perfectly balanced mixture of grown-up wit and childish entertainment... and it's not an all-out "musical" the way that the other 'classic Disney' ones (Lion King, Little Mermaid, Beauty&tBeast, Aladdin, etc.) are... I mean, it makes sense when the characters sing. They sing for a reason, whether it's coz there's a folksy party or it's just part of the soundtrack... no bursting-into-song-halfway-in-the-conversation. It's just the most fun, darnit. Nearly pure jollity all the way through. Those fight sequences! And my goodness, that song... "Love". That's where I first committed to memory that "life is brief, but when it's gone, love goes on and on." That has got to be one of the most romantic songs ever. *SWOON*

3. Which animated film would you be most willing to buy or see as a re-release in the theatre?
I already own most of the ones that I've mentioned, and actually watched a Beauty and the Beast in OmniMax (a teuncy and yet horrific experience) but I'd watch Robin Hood on the big screen, since I wasn't born when it was released in the cinema. Although I'd probably laugh at the sight of two foxes professing their undying love for each other in British accents. Hmmm.

4. What is your favorite animated film soundtrack?
It's a tie between Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King

5. What animated films do you read or write?
What? Uh, none.
