Favourite Animated Film

My favourite animated film would have to be..

'The Great Mouse Detective'

"Basil, the rodent Sherlock Holmes, investigates the kidnapping of a toy-maker and uncovers its link to his archenemy, Professor Ratigan."

It is just.. great. The villains are kind of creepy (like Ratigan and his bat partner in crime.. creeps!) - and it is just.. fun.. Sherlock Holmes for children.. And, although I am no longer a child, I still find this movie an absolute delight to watch.

Sure, there are a million other movies that have better animation, storyline, what have you.. But I think this would be my favourite.. Well, a close second is 'The Brave Little Toaster'.. Anyways..

What is YOUR favourite animated film?

A Movie Trailer

I am going to go with 'Gentlemen Broncos'. I really wanted to see it because it was the same people that did 'Napoleon Dynamite' - and I seriously love that movie.. This film was really strange, but there was something really great about it. Maybe the fact that it was so.. different?

Check out the trailer for yourself..

Anything Film Related

Anything film related hmmm..

Okay.. 3D movies. I am getting really sick and tired of them.

Really all they do is jack up the price of the movie ticket.. And half of the time, the movie isn't really gaining anything from being 3D. I believe it was Scorese that said he thinks ALL movies should be done in 3D. Barf. Really? I would go nuts.

I am patiently waiting for movies to be done in holographic form.. That way the movie is acted out around you.. I think that would be rad.

Apparently, nintendo's new gaming system is 3D - but you do not need the glasses.. See.. If movies could be done like that, I would be in! I think it is the glasses that annoy me the most.. I already wear glasses most of the time, so when I put contact lenses in only to have to wear glasses? Tres annoyed.

Yeah. 3D movies not a fan.. But 3D movies without the glasses.. doable. Bring on holographic films!!

Favourite Movie As A Kid

That would definitely be 'Rock-A-Doodle'..

"A little boy named Edmond learns that the crowing of Chanticleer the rooster did not make the sun rise, as everyone thought. But when a flood threatens his family's farm, Edmond sets off to get Chanticleer to make the sun rise and save the day or the rain will keep coming down forever. Edmond gets turned into a kitten during this adventure, for no apparent reason other than that cats are easier to animate than humans. Meanwhile Chanticleer has moved to the city, and although the farm seems to be in the Midwest, the nearest city is clearly supposed to be Las Vegas. Chanticleer is now the King and now he has to hurry, because the horrible owls, who love the darkness, are coming." Written by Anthony Pereyra

We (my sister and friends) try to watch it at least every other year, if not every year. There is just something so.. magical about it. I think it will always hold a very special place in my heart!!

A Movie Quote

I have been doing not so well with posting every day for 30 days.. Ugh.

Anyways.. A movie quote.. Wow.. Um.. I use so many within a day that now I am actually stuck..

One that we use quite a bit within my family is from the movie 'Super Troopers'.

Actually, we probably use a quote from this movie almost daily.. But one that constantly shows up (in varying ways) is a part where they are discussing their shenanigans..

And I quote..

"But our shenanigans are cheeky and fun."
"Their shenanigans are cruel and tragic."

We mostly use the 'cheeky and fun' and 'cruel and tragic' bits - but you get the point.

What is YOUR favourite quote from a movie? Or one that you use a lot?
