Stunningly beautiful, slightly talkie at the end, but absolutely, one of Ang Lee's best: yes!
Yes, you should see it: it's great!
Limited, monochromatic animation for adults from Bill Plympton. 'S okay.

Guest notes from 7 year-old daughter; "It's great. I liked it because it has blue birds, and I really love blue birds."

The writing is good, and there's a few laughs, but so much of the narrative is spent in the pursuit of breeding that it becomes pathetic and sad.

Not just for kids, and not for the very young uns. Violent funny western. Great, all the way around: Roger Deakins my favorite DP advised on the lighting.

Adorable Japanese animated film suitable for young kids and adult too. A treasure in frequent play here at our home! No other animated film has captured the attention of our two year-old.

Jacques Tati's screenplay is adapted and directed by The Triplets of Bellville creator and the result is a beautifully crafted yet emotionally distant film. A lovely work of art. It's refreshing to watch a film without dialogue or close-ups, true to Tati in style, and only 80 minutes long.

Since I didn't (couldn't) watch it, here's my six year-old's "review" of Yogi Bear. "It's very funny, and I liked it! Yogi and Boo Boo are funny too."

Awesome funny in so many ways. The writing, direction, animation, design, lighting, everything add up to one of the best animated films to come out of Dreamworks Animation. Voice talent and characterization: incredible. Love it!
