Still more lazy thoughts from this one…

Guest Post: Cold of Metal, But Warm of (Animated) Heart « FlixChatter

Reblogged from FlixChatter:

The Iron Giant WALL•

Given that I closed out my Versus AFI: 10 Top 10 series this week with my final entry on the Animation genre, I thought I’d reference a post from last year to give substance for two of my top 3 picks in that category. My good friend Ruth of Flixchatter graciously gave me a guest post spot last November, which I use to highlight two distinct animated pictures. A pair that unexpectedly shared some special properties, I believe, even though you could say The Iron Giant and WALL•E are on the flip side of each other in the sci-fi genre:

“What is immediately apparent to anyone who views both films is that each production visually reflects their studio’s distinctly dissimilar technical animation philosophies. Pixar is very much a CGI animation house in their product look and feel, while Warner Bros. Animation films retain the classic cartoon appearance (for the most part). The late Steve Jobs-led studio, Pixar, is a relatively young company so it’s no surprise their work is entirely state-of-the-art computer-generated animation. Compare that to the venerable Warner Bros. studio, its name, and its long-time traditional cartoon pedigree with its Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of yesteryear. Yet, WB’s mid-line modern hits, and the DC Comics animation film stable of recent times means it remains a player in this market.”
