I’ve seen some super awesome animated movies recently after what felt like a long period where there were only a few here and there. Interesting to me that a bunch of them are out of France or are animated there.
- The Secret of Kells. You can find the trailer here on the movie’s website. The animation in this is interesting, with a lot of depth. I will own it for sure – I can’t imagine getting tired of watching it. If you have Netflix, it’s still in the Watch Instantly section so you can watch it anytime (I’ve only seen it 2 and 1/2 times, I swear).
- Dragon Hunters. The trailer is on its website and it is also under Watch Instantly on Netflix. The worlds created in here are layered and wonderful and dark. I also loved the variety of dragons in it – really clever. It’s based on a French cartoon that’s been around for a while. The credits are done by the Cure for the television show! I also love that their website has taught me that the French word for Dragon is Dragon. I could look at the backgrounds in this film forever.
- Despicable Me. Trailer is on the movie website as well as on apple. Over Christmas, I asked my niece and nephew what movie had been their favorite over the past year, and I hadn’t seen this one. My nephew really liked it so I put it into our movie queue to watch. When it came in the mail, it sat on the counter for a while because I wasn’t so sure I’d like it. It was really well done! There were parts that I really loved.
