Posts Tagged ‘Dreamworks’

As much as I would love to credit an artist, I’m compelled to say that this was created from the vast depth of what is ‘Anon’.  Regardless of who made it [definitely not me], it’s hilarious how coincidental this is.  There are definite lines between the Dreamworks creative team and the Pixar creative team.  While both have their merits, it’s clear which one has a more distinct style when it comes to story.  And the whole animal giving the raised eyebrow treatment doesn’t really help their cause.  Maybe that’s why Pixar outnumbers Dreamworks Animation in Best Animated Picture by like kajillion to one.  Somebody dig up the actual number, I think it’d be fairly interesting.

With Cars 2 pretty much out of the way for the best animated picture of the year, Dreamworks has a pretty good chance at nabbing the spot with their two blockbusters this year: Kung Fu Panda 2 and Puss in Boots.  I’ve finally gotten a chance to see Kung Fu Panda 2, the sequel to the very enjoyable original Kung Fu Panda released in 2008.  As with most sequels [once again as exemplified in Cars 2], it’s risky to come up with both an engaging and original story.  But with a strong emotional story and fleshing out its likable supporting players in balance with its lead, Kung Fu Panda 2 exceeds my expectations and is, in my opinion, the best shot of best animated picture of the year.

Pixar is the front runner for promising animated films of this generation.  Classic Disney was the front runner for giving us the best animation of the 1900s.  It seems Disney and its acquisitions have always given us the most memorable animated movies that we watched when we were children and will recommend our children to watch as we grow older.  So finding a great animated feature that doesn’t have the production title Disney, is indeed a rare gem.  I tried to find as much range as possible.  Please remind me if I missed any.  Hit the jump for the list.
