Bolt

No thread for Disney's new animated dog movie yet? I couldn't wait to see it as soon as I saw the trailer. You would think furries would be all over this. Guess not... Anyways, I watched it today and I loved it. It had some pretty funny parts that I laughed at, but mostly I was just enamoured by how cute it was. Overall it's just a really, really sweet movie. (But then again I always get emotional over childrens' movies.) It has a lovely art style and I wish I could see it in 3D, but there are no theaters near here doing that. I liked the movie so much that I immediately went out and bought all of the Bolt merchandise I could get my hands on, and I might post pictures of them later.

TL;DR: I love Bolt.

So, has anyone else seen this movie or plan on seeing it?

I doubt I'll see it, as I just can't stand CG movies. I miss the old hand-drawn ones, which sadly are all but gone...

HELL YEAH!!!
I thought it was good when I first saw the trailer... but then I learned about it's original script, and that made me very upset...

I'm likely to see it.

I can feel the anachronistic complaint, though. It's not manipulation of a real canvas or of a physical paint. It's 1s & 0s, harassed into taking some crude shape in some non-existant corner of a box whose contents are put on display on something more soul-less than a TV screen.

Granted, CGI can look sharp, and do things a real animation can't, but there are times when I can be found wanting of a balance.

TL;DR Version: Mixed Feelings

And vice versa. I've found hand-drawn/hand-colored animation to be more vibrant than CI can do. Take Secret of NIMH, for example. I don't know if CG would take the opening and reproduce it, or the climactic scene for that matter.
 

brrrr

rrrrr
It looks like a cute movie. I think I liked it more when I had seen the first 30 seconds of the initial trailer. Sure, he was like a cliche superpower dog but it felt more original than the storyline they decided to pull. Still looks fun to see.

Underdog but without the powers?

Yea I saw it last night and for me it was by far the best movie Ive seen in a long time. ^^ Yes defently post pics of all your Bolt stuff so I can go out and get it hehe. My biggest question is do they plan to do more with Bolt or is this it? Honestly I think they could make Bolt into a very popular TV show or at least a second movie.

I really want to shoot CGI and 2D animation whores. Animation is just animation - do not limit yourself just because something is not in CGI or 2D.

Anyway, yeah, Bolt as far as I heard, is actually getting good scores.

Also, about Bolt's origin - LOL are you seriously not gonna watch it because of that?! Lilo and Stitch isn't even special!
 
It sounds like a few of you don't want to see it because it's CG. I think I should point out that this movie was not done in the normal CG style, but rather a newer experimental style called non-photorealistic rendering. Think Ratatouille but even less photorealistic than that. To me it looks more like a cartoon-style painting come to life than something pixelated and digital. The scenery is beautiful, and there is a lot of it, as the group goes on a interstate journey from New York to Hollywood. Not to mention Bolt's fur looks so soft and fluffy, I just wanna squeeze him!

I think you should at least give it a try. But I dunno; if you can look at this and not see emotion, then you're not on the same page as me.

If you have a Disney Store near you and want to buy lots of Bolt stuff, I'd suggest you go today because there's an in-store 25% off sale this weekend only. Which would help especially if you're looking to get the giant 30-inch plush.

I don't have anything against CG, I just think it doesn't look as good as hand-drawn animation (especially humans). The stories are good, but the detail in hand-drawn animation can be better than CG (especially old-age Disney movies).

I does what I says on the box.
Is there a scene where he gets hit by a car?

No?

To hell with that then.

The only things I'm missing now that I still want to get are the soundtrack and a T-shirt.

Somebody's obsessed! :p
I wouldn't mind a small plushie. I played a demo of the DS game, it wasn't bad (easy, but not bad).
 

TwilightV

HELL YEAH!!!
That sounded much better and less generic than what we got... >.>
