Best Animated Feature

01 AdventuresThe Adventures of Tintin – Dir. Steven Spielberg
In this exciting saga, Spielberg is able to encapsulate much energy and thrill without forsaking the substance, making the film a mentally stimulating film as it is visually. The music score by John Williams is a perfect match to the eye-popping visuals that I did not expect to love. Thoroughly gripping without getting exhaustive.

02 KungKung Fu Panda 2 – Dir. Jennifer Yuh Nelson
I loved its predecessor, so falling in love with the characters was not that hard. What stunned me is its capability to provide strong continuity to the story while delivering freshness to the material. There is also the adoptive father-son focus that gave surprising heart to the story, creating an endearing experience that I did not even expect.

03 PussPuss in Boots – Dir. Chris Miller
The film makes up for its inevitable lightness with its immense watchability. It charms its way through its whole length with humor and pathos that makes the lead character so easy to care for. Spots of cheesiness are immediately covered up with its exhilarating moments of hilarity and action.

04 RangoRango – Dir. Gore Verbinski
While it takes time for us to warm up with the characters, it makes up with its idiosyncratic humor that is not found in any other animated films I have seen before. The writing itself is a genius in not going the easy way out in begging for the viewers’ empathy. Instead, the film becomes a smart and enjoyable treat that is visually enthralling.

.

.

05 WinnieWinnie the Pooh – Dirs. Stephen Anderson & Don Hall
The film harbors on its charm, and the result is an enjoyable and visually interesting film that makes the most out of the charisma of its source material. It doesn’t hurt that it features a soundtrack that is a delight to the ears.
