What I really like about this generation of Animated films (from the Pixar crew at least) is they aren't built around a romance. Sure Wall-E loves Eva and Linguine is head over heels for Colette, but that's not what the stories are about. Eva's number one priority is her primary directive to find the plant (there's a career driven women if ever I saw one) and both Monsters and Up are essentially buddy stories with our heros up against some evil or injustice. And I think those are pretty good stories, for adults and kids alike.
Anyway, so where was I going with this...? Oh right. I am a recently converted Animated Film fanatic. And there is a new one being released soon - Despicable Me, with Steve Carrell as the voice of the #2 super-villain in the world, Gru. The part that I am really looking forward to? When Gru's recently adopted daughter, Agnes, discovers a fluffy unicorn toy at FunLand amusement park and declares that "It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!!!". I have watched that clip on repeat at least a dozen times already and it still makes me laugh out loud. And my ridiculous laughter makes David laugh. Everyone's a winner! It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!!!
Seriously though, Twilight can go suck it, I can't wait for Despicable Me.
