I'm leaning towards "The Fantastic Mr. Fox," although I'm guessing it would be nice to see the Disney one on the big screen.

So it's come down to The Fantastic Mr. Fox (I like stop-motion animation and animals-as-people; plus it looks trippy) and the new Disney flick, The Princess Frog or whatever. Both have gotten good reviews. Which one is more worth $5.50 and why? Which is more likely to appeal to adults?

Either one will probably be a good bet, but I would recommend Mr Fox. If for no other reason than the Disney film will be playing for quite a bit longer, and Mr Fox is certainly going to have a more adult oriented humor.

Or you could try the other George Clooney movie "Up In the Air".

You know, I had a moment the other day when an ad for the new Disney flick came on screen. I was amazed with and reminded, just how damn beautiful hand-drawn animation is. Chances are, considering my general theater-attending apathy this year, I won't go out to see it, but I'm fairly certain I'll attempt to rent it come its DVD cycle. Which reminds me, I need to get on Ponyo whenever they release that.

"Avatar" was a fun time at the movies. "Citizen Kane," it's not, but what a great visual experience.

My thoughts exactly Cinenaut! The best word to sum up the movie after all the hype, talk, and discussion -- FUN.

Also managed to sneak another movie in this week and saw Fantastic Mr. Fox. I was amazed how well Wes Anderson's style translated into a stop-motion animated film. It really ended up being a legitimately funny and enjoyable.

I really enjoyed Pontypool! It's very quirky, but other horror directors should be taking notes on how to create dread without a big budget.
