I'm going to go with the Ally route and primarily use this blog for movie feels because that's the only constant in my life: watching movies. I might post here and there with actual real life stuff, but that's always far and in between because I'm really boring as a person and I only get two days off a week, which are usually spent watching movies and catching up on some sleep.
Anywho...I bought Monster House a couple weeks back because fuck saving money, I'm going to spend all the dough I earn on DVDs I don't need!
I hadn't seen the movie since it came out in 2006 when my former BFF and I saw it in theaters. I remember liking it because it was funny. Not the greatest, but whatever. Like I said, I bought it on a whim because it was $5 and I like darker children's films like this.
Well, I'm watching it right now (because when one holiday is up, I'm longing for a different one) and dear lord do I hate the animation.
Like, the story is alright. It's funny and fairly clever, but I just can't get past how awful the animation in this is!
Take for instance, when Zee was rocking out to her music. Had this been a Disney film, you would've seen her move with such fluidity and you would've seen each strand of hair move with her like a normal non-animated human's would.
Not in this one, no sir! When Zee was moving, her hair was not. I get and understand that hair is kind of a pain in the ass and people usually avoid doing massive amounts of hair (save for Pixar films, where characters like Sulley and Merida exist and have thousands upon thousands of strands of hair that need to be animated), but is is too hard to ask that the hair not look like plastic?
The entire movie looks really plastic/video game like and it's just really off-putting.
Otherwise, the film itself is good. Just ugly as sin.
