Please allow me...

....to be an animation dork for a moment. =) Hah.Saw this little gem last night after mucho anticipation...Any animated film that makes adults laugh out loud is cool with me...=) Loved Dustin Hoffman. The Tiger rocks. The bad guy Tiger rocked, too. Jack Black was funny (usually he grates on me). The turtle was my fave! And there were amazing expressions and awesome acting. And the Kung Fu..oh, the Kung fu. The opening animation sequence was amazing - couldn't figure out if it was 3D or Flash at first, mixed in with 2D animation (good ol pencil and paper!) but I was lovin the textures and the loveliness of it all. The story rocked. It had an awesome message...I'll admit I even forgot it was 3D while watching...which is a big thing. Go see!

Oh! And, when you do, please don't get up during the end credits and stand and meander around in front of the animation dorks like myself and my husband who like to actually read the credits. =) he he...a public service announcment, persay? Or read them, maybe, and you'll see how many peoples it takes to pull of a film like that and see where it was made...cool beans!

Happy day, all! Monster coming tomorrow!!

Glad you finally got around to seeing that movie. I LOVED Kung Fu Panda. And the opening sequence was so cool. All of those peach tree leaves were so pretty too. But, I think my favorite of all is watching the fur on the animals. I love to watch it move and fluff in the air.

I wanna see that so bad!! But I don't know if we are going to be able too, we all want to WALL*E here. :) Especially my 2 1/2 year old. Heehee.

Ohhh man more monsters =) And that animation is awesome!

Neen and Mike said...

We are credit geeks too... for two main reasons... to see whos name comes up first... Mike always wins that one... honestly there are too many Mikes in the world...
But also to make sure we don't miss out if there is a sneaky clip at the end ie Pirates of the Carribean...

Is it Wednesday already?! You're right, all that 'adult stuff' takes up way too much time. I'll put 'having a job' in that category because it takes up more time than everything else combined. Blah.

I'm usually not an animated movie fan (don't be offended, it's ALWAYS due to the plot...) but I might have to give Kung Fu Panda a chance, if it's as good as you claim.

Hooray for getting lots of work done and everything else that you did over the weekend! It sounds like your to-do list is mostly clear now...if that's ever possible? :)

Can't wait to see it!

I saw this last week and I adored it!!!

and while I don't stand up and mill around I do get up and head straight out (my husband's crazy about getting out before everyone else so he doesn't have to deal with the crowds... yeah, I know...)

Oh we LOVED that film at our house....all the kiddos young and old ;)! Should i tell you my secret ingredient? snicker....

Michelle said...

Animation nerdiness. Love it! And as I read this to Dan out loud he wonders how the heck we haven't met yet. I sweat I was trying to figure out if the beginning was flash, 3d or hand drawn too. :)
