Animated movies!

Even though I am a college student, I still am very fond of all the animated movies from Pixar and Dreamwork. Their creativity and ability to appeal to a very broad age group astounds me. Growing up I think my first 3D animated movie I saw was Toy Story. I loved this movie and at the time the graphics (still are to this day) were amazing. But now a days the amount of detail that is put into particle effects, shadows and other details is just, to be simply put - amazing.


Here are some of my top favorite animated movies.


Up (2009) - I'd rather not just go over the plot of the whole movie, but basically Carl (the old man) has always had a dream to move his house (club house as he and his passed away wife called it) to the top of Paradise Falls. In the beginning his house was located in a quiet neighborhood which is now overrun with urbanization. So Carl has the brilliant idea to fly his house to paradise falls using thousands of balloons tied to his house.  How the kid and the dog relate to the picture, well you are just going to have to watch it to find out. ;) All in all, it is a great story, very funny and just a recommended watch for everyone!

Although this isn't really in the category of Finding Nemo, Up, The Incredibles and other movies of the like. This is still a great watch about the creative idea to make a story about the cells in our body! It is a funny movie that combines real actors (like the legendary Bill Murray) and animated characters. Definitely a recommended watch.

Osmosis Jones = Super nostalgia. I'll never forget how gross it was when the guy dropped the egg, picked it up off the ground and ate it was. Blah!

Haha so true, American animated movies are really cool for the most part. Some can be really stupid though. Can't beat the classic like Lion King.

Great post, thanks!

I remember the first time I sat down and watched Osmosis Jones, For some reason I didn't think I was going to like it. I was pleasantly surprised to find it funny and entertaining.

I loved Up, was a really good movie.

And Osmosis Jones just makes me feel young again, though it did freak me out a bit.
