One of my favorite shorts of all time, Osamu Tezuka's "Jumping":
It's so much like so many of my dreams.
I also have nostalgic love for this short, Janko Raven. Special appearance by James Earl Jones haha:

kstipetic, I see what you mean about your earlier post. The McDonald's tie-ins don't bother me because I see it as a reflection of trying to take the message to the masses (and of course because we live in a capitalist society, to make money). My philosophy is that art doesn't shape society, but its...
You know, a friend of mine once said that the fear of unoriginality is the death of art. If you worry about creating something "original" too much, you're bound to end up talking to no one but yourself, and I feel like as artists it's our job to communicate to the average person. I'm so happy about ...

I felt like I just spent a day at Hanauma Bay in Hawaii, looking at fish and marveling at how pretty life is. There's really not much more to Ponyo than that, I think. It's a very sweet, adorable film! Plus I loved the little icons next to everyone's names during the ending credits. It made me think...

I don't think I've ever been to a "mystery meat" Chinese place before... there's always something I can find that's palatable! Personally, my favorite Chinese restaurants are: http://www.yelp.com/biz/newport-tan-cang-seafood-restaurant-san-gabriel-2 (This is probably my favorite restaurant in LA in ...
I thought the puppetry and craft of it was absolutely amazing, and it was worth seeing in the theater in 3D for that alone. I couldn't really get into the story, though. I guess I'm old-fashioned in that I do like more traditional fairy tales and fantasies that are rooted in problems that are more d...

Hm... I just saw this last night and didn't like it at all. I must've checked my watch several times, and I actually zoned out a few times. It was just so long and boring, and I really didn't like the main character. He barely said anything, and didn't do much beside stare at people, "have women", a...
Hehe~ I agree. I'm a big fan of the books and wasn't disappointed. I'll just copy and paste what I wrote in my livejournal: It's one of the best cases of book to film translation I've seen of late. All of the book's flaws, and all of it's charms were preserved. All of the scenes that I remember the ...
Man... that was LONG!! But I liked it. I think if they managed to make it half hour shorter, I would've left the theater feeling much more spunky. But seeing as how complicated it was, I don't know if could've been any shorter. The Joker has always seems watered down outside comics. Not quite campy,...
