    I'll also admit, say what you will about Bayformers and Baynage Baytant Baynja Baytles, they certainly didn't skimp on the CGI. If only the quality of writing and direction was as good as how the Transformers looked.

    But Jungle Book was a beautiful looking film. No wonder it stayed at the top for so long. I quite enjoyed it, it was a bit slow at times, but it was the only live action Disney remake/prequel/whatever of a Disney animated movie that looked like something that would appeal to me. Jungle Book is one of my favorite Disney movies, after all. And you couldn't go wrong with Bill Murray as Baloo. And surprisingly, Christopher Walken was amazing as Louie.

    I know 'Frozen' is generally regarded as overrated by most, and 'The Good Dinosaur' gets a pretty mixed reception. But considering most films have at least two writers but each of those films only had one screenwiter each (Meg LaFauve wrote TGD, Jennifer Lee wrote Frozen) it makes the movies all the more impressive.

    The reception to Good Dinosaur bugs the heck out of me. It is indeed a good film, it's just treated like crap because it's Pixar doing a low key, different film than usual. I like the departure. Not everything has to be as big and bold as Inside Out and Toy Story. The original direction GD was taking was much more in line with those sorts of Pixar films, but quite honestly, the massive changes they made in the movie's tone and casting made it all the better a film. It's just never going to get the respect it deserves.

    I loved both Finding Dory and Zootopia. Now I'm looking forward to the Secret Life Of Pets.

    Are both of those movies really good? I really want to see Finding Dory and especially Zootopia.

    Yes they are both amazing. I think you would like them.

    Hopes up for The Intruder III being as good as the first two! Hopefully we'll get a TOM 6... and a SARA 4 with a body!

    Not CGI but I really enjoyed The Justice League vs. Teen Titans, I liked the plot about the Teen Titans and Justice League teaming up to defeat Raven's demonic father, Trigon.

    I still don't understand how people are already making judgements about the movie despite the fact that we've only seen footage from about 20 seconds of it.

    The trailer for "Despicable Me 3" is out:



    Frankly, I didn't even know they were having a third movie but it looks interesting, and I like the fact that they seem to be focusing less on Gru's kids and the minions and more about him and Lucy going on missions.

    It's kind of like I didn't understand how FROZEN already had a tremendously huge fanbase like at least a year or so before the movie ever came out . . . I remember getting requests on deviantART including FCs and all and having a difficult time finding decent references since the movie hadn't even come out yet.

    For a student film, this is really, really impressive:

    When it comes to TV-quality CGI, I think the stuff put out by Zagtoon would have to be some of the best. Look at Miraculous Ladybug or the Popples Netflix series and you'll see quite a bit of detail in terms of textures, lighting, and overall fluidity.

    The upcoming Muppet Babies reboot looks impressive as well, at least from the single promo image that's floating around. They almost look like real-life Muppets, as blasphemous as that sounds. :)

    I still say that Ladybug girl looks like Violet from THE INCREDIBLES.

    Another short film that's absolutely amazing; this feels like a short you would see preceding a Pixar movie in theaters:

    What came out first, Inside Out or the Peanuts Movie? Whichever did, these were the most recent CGI movies I've seen that I liked. I don't go to movies that often, because a lot of times, they don't appeal to me.

    Inside out came first

    Ok, then the last CGI movie I saw was the Peanuts movie and I absolutely loved it! I left the theater thinking to myself, "I want this on DVD!"
