A Look Ahead to Best Animated Film.


I am actually in the least filmic mood ever (not at all made better by Empire's joke of nominations), so this’ll be short.

01. Persepolis
This was a very good film. Deep, mature and moving, I really enjoyed it. A-.

02. Ratatouille
Now, I consider myself a huge Pixar fan, but I really couldn’t force myself to fall in love with Ratatouille like most cinemagoers did. Whilst I recognise that it was beautifully formed, with detailed drawings of scenary and rats yada yada, I still came out of the cinema feeling like it was a meal that had left me short-changed and still hungry. (Rolling with the Empire contempt at the moment, they named Rat. as their 2nd best Disney film. Are you having' a laff.) B.

03. Surf’s UpAre you havin’ a laff? Are you havin’ a laff? Are you havin’ a laff? I'm sick of penguins now, I really am. D.

Should: Persepolis
Will: Ratatouille
Where’s their nomination: Simpsons


Told you it’d be short. Personal problems. Might update later.

You all right Emz? You seem a bit venemous today.

Lol, sorry about that, I was actually more busy than annoyed. And also, I don't care about this category that match because I know that the deserved winner won't walk home with the award, and Pixar shalll triumph. So I didn't really see the point in saying any more than that, really!

*that much.

[Needs to stop thinking about the Tottenham-slash that she's writing]

The Academy are obsessed with penguins, it's sickening. The Simpsons should be in there too, did Spiderpig mean nothing to these people?
Yeah the Empire Awards are a bit of a disappointment as I have ranted about yesterday, i did have a good giggle though when someone posted anonymously on my blog that Emma Watson was a phenomenal actress and I knew nothing about acting. Some kids...

You know I love you. But I love you more now that you're writing that Tottenham slash =)

Anything wrong, darling? You can tell me on Facebook or my blog, I'm always around =) It's okay even if you don't tell me...just want you to know I'm here.

Can't wait for that slash...will definitely LOVE it! =D

If The Simpsons Movie got nominated I may have had to murder myself. It was a 2/10 at best.

lmao...I love your blog: "I'm sick of penguins now, I really am."

lmao. made my day :P ratatouille is a way better film VISUALLY...but personall, I feel persepolis's story is waaaay more deserving...as a film it's better. it depends what they're gonna look for.

The best Disney films are The Lion King, The Jungle Book and maybe Mulan. But not Pinocchio! It's so cheesy I could smell the stilton.
