Want to treat yourself with a nice good animated movie for a change?
Timeout made a list of 100 best ones:
As usual when it comes to lists, this one also meets the taste of probably just one man on the planet. But if you ignore the numbers, the list is almost perfect!
Yes it does have some mediocre entries (Coraline for example, not saying it's not good, but definetly is not the best). Also it does have spin-offs you should never watch unless seeing the TV series (Neon Genesis Evangelion - you'll be totally confused with the movie if you watch it as a standalone piece). Oh and overrated crap is also unavoidable (Princess Mononoke for example).
But I was utterly happy finally seeing the article that contains usually ignored stuff on such lists like Ghost in the Shell (both of them!), Lord of the Rings (if you ever wanted to see an animated masterpiece, if you don't believe Jackson massacred the book, please watch this) and Animal Farm (I admit the source book is even more shocking, but it does the earthquake in this form too).
So check the list, pick a title randomly and go watch it. Chance of picking "not really the best" one is nearly impossible.
