so wait is this convo mainly about TV shows, or summer tentpole animated features, or both?

but yeah i remember watching shrek in high school & thinking it was way too pleased with itself in its mocking of every disney convention & the fact that it was a kids cartoon with dick jokes - i dont know that theres really been a successful traditional animated feature since?

now find an animated protagonist that isn't fat

i think ratatoillie was maybe not so smirky? i dunno cuz i havent actually seen any of these

but id like to see someone try a non-winkywinky fairytale movie for kids sometime

deeznuts, Thursday, 19 June 2008 15:46 (nine years ago) Permalink

ratatouille wasn't smirky at all..it was very sincere.

honestly i don't feel like pixar is at all a part of this sort of thing. (which i hate)

it's more of a dreamworks thing.

M@tt He1ges0n, Thursday, 19 June 2008 15:49 (nine years ago) Permalink

Yeah the Pixar movies are none of these things. xp

Pancakes Hackman, Thursday, 19 June 2008 15:50 (nine years ago) Permalink

and while these types of films are successful, pixar has been more successful by far.

well, Cars was a little smirky.

Yeah, my first thought was WHAT ABOUT PIXAR?

Kung Fu Panda has had very good word of mouth, to be fair.

Also, for comparison's sake, via Rotten Tomatoes:

66% The Incredible Hulk $55.4M
88% Kung Fu Panda $33.6M
20% The Happening $30.5M

well i guess yeah cars maybe was a little bit of bad dudes with baddass 'tudes

but still it's nowhere NEAR as snarky as say shrek.

the big thing with Pixar is that they don't do pop culture reference gags...each movie is true to its own fantasy world, they don't break to wink at the audience...

cars is the least of the pixar movies though.

the Shark Tale producers presumably concluded that the secret to Nemo's success was the fact that it had fish in it. OMG FISH ARE SO IN THIS YEAR!!!!

Smirking computer animation edges out the corpse of a movie franchise and yet another comic book film (the second take on this one), what an accomplishment.

I like kung fu movies, what do you want? Trad kung fu movies make a point of demonstrating contrasting styles, the more the better. Hell, even the pilot for the David Carradine series had each of the 5(ish) animal styles portrayed. The conceit of taking your otherwise bog standard dreamworks talking animals cheapo CGI but using it to instead match up said animal with the animal style interests me.

Let's see if this movie has James Hong in it.

[imdb check]

HA! It does!

Dreamworks and Pixar so know what the other is working on, even if they're not meant to, and even if it's just "hey they're doing a fish film". Goes as far back as Bug's Life/Antz.

Agreed, I went to Kung Fu Panda with low expectations and was surprised how much I enjoyed it.

Shark Tale, on the other hand, is truly horrible.

What's left to ruin at this point? We should submit a list to the major animation studios so they can just get it over with.
