I was actually listening to your podcast with Luke while sketching some characters. And I gotta say, you guys bring up a lot a lot of good points for each movie.
I totally agree with the both of you that Wreck-It Ralph is the best animated feature of this year and that it should've won at the Oscars instead of Brave. I haven't seen Hotel Transylvania but I now intend to after listening to your praise and learning that the director is also the creator of Dexter's Lab. I guess around it's release I was still in my Pixar phase. But many great surprises could happen outside that area like How to train your Dragon and Rango.
I also listened to your cartoon podcast that came before this one. And my god, that Strawberry Shortcake rap is just... amazingly catchy for something that would sound so horrible. How does the singer even catch up with such a fast pace song?
You make a good point concerning Disney 2D animated films. I too always thought if someone was going to make 2D animated films popular again, it'd be someone who does something different instead of rehashing what was once popular years ago.
You actually made a very good point about animated movies being judged at the oscars as a whole and not for their categories, never even thought about that. But apparently from what I remember learning, the Oscars at one time were considering getting rid of the animated feature category.
This podcast is REALLY great! I'm glad that this isn't one of those podcast where guys just talk and drag everything they say and sound all boring and awkward. You guys make really good points and discussions! :U
Glad to see you enjoyed Hotel Transylvania as much as I did! The animation and direction was awesome, and the Dracula character ocasionally reminded me to Samurai Jack, not too weird when Mr. Tartakovsky is in charge
