    Hi,
    just read Pixar / Dreamworks / Blue Sky thread.

    I thought Poll might be interesting. What's the best Film / Your favourite Film amongst them?
    _____

    I haven't seen Robots, but for the rest IMHO first Toy Story wins by huge margin.
    _____

    This is only about recent generation of movies. I know TRON would win any poll :)

    I watched shrek 2 with the family we all loved it, a couple of weeks later we saw the incredibles and although it was good i found the first 20 mins really sloooooowwww,
    and the parts with the "fashion designer" pointless.

    Finding Nemo the characterisation was spot on.
    Followed very closely by Toy Story 2 - better than the original
    Antz comes in third, Woody Allen at his neurotic insecty best
    Incredibles was very good but left me wanting that little bit more

    I had to go with Incredibles. Blew me socks off it did :D.

    Can fully understand some people finding the first 3rd of it slow. I think it's more to do with expectations though. With Spiderman or X-Men it's fine, but having a CG film spend so much time establishing characters, with maybe a more serious tone the usual was a bit of a shock. I think it caught most people by surprise. I found with on second viewing it moved much quicker though.

    Finding Nemo comes a very close second. I found it the funniest and for me it's slightly better then Incredibles in most aspects, but the second half of Incredibles just gets me every time :D . Best action sequences since ROTK. The 100 mile Dash was..... Incredible! :smashin: (Fantastic 4 doesn't really stand a chance does it?)

    I'm surprised at the lack of love for Shrek so far. Didn't like the films myself but I thought they'd be way out in front. My problem with Shrek is that I didn't find them that funny, and without the humor there's not much else to them. The story, in Shrek 2 especially was truly appalling :nono: . I didn't find Monster's Inc. that funny either but had a great story with some brilliantly original ideas.

    I can't believe that no one has voted for Toy Stroy 2 since me!

    Makes my comment earlier about 2nd place look a bit daft now! :D :oops:

    Yep, really enjoyed the sequel too. Was there ever a third version planned? I heard rumours a while back.

    Toy Story 3 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0435761/

    It's most definitely on the way. Bad News? It's not being made by Pixar :thumbsdow

    I believe Disney owns the rights to all of Pixar's films so unless Mr. Rob Iger (New Disney CEO) can convince them to do a u-turn and stay on after Cars, expect to see sequels to all your Pixar favorites :nono:

    "Finding Nemo 4: Finding Dory" (straight to video) anyone? No? How about The Incredibles, saturday morning T.V. show?
    Disneys gonna pimp them for all they're worth :rolleyes:

    Oh dear, a Toy Story without Pixar seems suicidal. Who can hear ‘straight to video’?

    it might seem like we're all just voting for the most recent with Incredibles, but i really think it shows what can be done with computer animation. it's the perfect medium for superhero movies. remember how everything seemed great in spiderman, then the illusion was ruined by some dodgy cgi? with the incredibles, you almost forget that you're not watching real people as there is no gap between their normal scenes and their super-scenes, no special effects, since the whole thing is really a special effect. i'm certainly not saying all superhero movies should be computer animated, just that the medium really suits that particular subject, the suspension of disbelief is easily maintained.
    i still say it's a rip-off of the fantastic four though.
    oh, and to reply to an earlier post, the nightmare before christmas is stop-motion animation, not computer generated. brilliant as it is, it doesn't fit the remit of this thread.

    that sounds like the final nail in disney's coffin - they have been struggling to find form for most of the last decade (the lion king aside) its only Pixar that has given them any real success. still it will be intersting to see what pixar can do without disney - will they make more adult movies (no not porn :D )

    Disney have made some decent enough films recently, i really enyoyed Atlantis. but everyone wants to see computer animations now. if Atlantis had been a Pixar movie, it probably would have been a much bigger hit. it seems like disney have tried to stay behind more traditional animation, but the market has moved away. from a commercial point of view you can't really blame them for wanting to milk the cash-cow while they can, with sequels to Pixar's movies. it's just unfortunate that when they have tried something a little different they seemed almost afraid to really promote it and as a result have had limited success. instead they seem to concentrate on stright to video sequels.
    i really would like to see them do more real blockbuster traditional animation and come out with all promo guns blazing, just to prove that computers aren't essential to make a good animated movie.
    yeah, i know even their newer animated films use a lot of computers, but you know what i mean.

    I disagree: the viewing public generally doesn't care what kind of technology went into the production of a film. What they want is a good story, characters they can care about, etc. IMHO, this is where Pixar has proven its excellence (and Disney, alas, its mediocrity...).

    We may get to see if this is indeed the case in a few years time. There's been a rumor going round that Pixar is setting up there our traditional 2D animation department with Brad Bird directing their first project :smashin: .

    I think there has been a shift in what type of animation people want to see. The mere fact a film is CG will have folks flocking to the cinemas *cough* Shark Tale *cough*. I do believe it's just because it's a new relatively new art form though. Once this CG fascination dies and it becomes the norm I can really see traditional animation making a comeback.

    The last 2D Disney film i've seen was The Lion King so I can't really comment on their more recent efforts but the general feeling seems to be that they've just not been good enough :( .

    Amen to that!

    Loved The Incredibles too (especially the jumping sheep ani that was shown at the cinemas)

    Toy Story just has that special something - a timeless quality about it that will make it a future classic.
