    Epic

    Truely

    See it in 3D worthy of Pixar and that is not something I say lightly - IMHO the very best thing that Dreamworks has done by a country mile

    For those of us into animation at the very most minutiae level this features effects and textures that I haven't even seen Pixar do yet.

    Like Pixar though it is driven principally by a very strong story and I just love it

    I have to say it looks great. I love a good animated film.

    Avatar disappointed me greatly. It was stunning visually but it totally lacked in an original storyline. Children's animations always seem to have a fantastic original storyline :yes:

    Absolutely what has been missing from most 'proper' films for years - the plot

    Yay! It was a great film, and this time hubby and I weren't the only adults in the cinema without kids :)

    Ive heard great comments

    I think Tatiana is still a bit young for it, and could get scared, but Im looking forward to eventually watching it at home with her

    I hate the prices at the cinema recently. I went to the pictures with a friend the other day, his parents took his little sister to see a different film so we got a lift off them but then went to watch a different film. For 4 people it cost them the best part of £50!

    Yeah they never used to here but they do now - our cinemax asks you to keep them and use them next time, used to recycle them like they do at Disney

    We have a cinema half an hour away that does 3d now and if you go on certain days it's only £5, normal films is £3.50, bargain.
