Summary: I expected a lot better.
This is basically a sappy Woody Allen movie done with computer animated characters, with a weak plot and short running time. There's really not a lot to it, and Toy Story was a lot more involved. I guess it would have helped a lot if this wasn't a story about damn vile insects.

Viewing Location: theater in OKC or something like that Grade: B
Summary: good enough to watch
I got a kick out of this. A small kick, but still, a palpable kick. The animation was good enough to not interfere with the film, and the voice acting was superb. The story was cartoony, but what did you expect? It was fun.

Summary: The best animated bug movie of the year
Come on, it has Woody Allen, Christopher Walken, and Sylvester Stallone providing the voices for animated insects. How bad could it be? In the end, it turns out to be a fairly enjoyable kids' film with enough adult humor in it to keep things interesting for the grown ups. The animation is well done, too.

Viewing Location: Silcon Valley Grade: B-
Summary: Maybe I just don't like computer animation
I enjoy movies that have a great look. Some 'old fashioned' animation does that for me, despite the use of computers in creating the film. Live action usually does it for me, depending on the effects and lighting.

I can't say I've liked any 100% CG movie yet.

Or maybe they just haven't been any good.

  Grade: A
Summary: the best woody allen movie woody allen never made
Neuroses on parade (again). Z (whom I am not named after) the ant is your basic Woody Allen character, except he triumphs bigtime eventually. Typical 'one man can make a difference' plot, but the animation does the genre credit. Excellent character animation.
