THE CROODS (DreamWorks, USA - CGI)
Director: Chris Sanders, Kirk DeMicco
Writers: Chris Sanders, Kirk De Micco
Is it just me or are these characters too polished and shiny and inflated-looking to be charming? It's not as if Chris Sanders can't do beautiful and charming, just watch LILO & STITCH and LION KING. Why do DreamWorks animated features almost always lack charm, style and beauty? Iconoclasm doesn't have to be ugly, Jeffrey.
DESPICABLE ME 2 (Universal/Illumination Entertainment, USA - CGI)
Directors: Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin
Writers: Cinco Paul, Ken Daurio
These characters are beautifully designed and have oodles of wit and charm. The colors, backgrounds, animation, camera angles and acting are terrific. Good luck.
