Finally, Pixar has met its match

2009 was really a great year for movies, with blockbusters in many genres being released almost every month. For kids, the end of the year brought this animated masterpiece; probably Sony's best animated film. Though based of a book, it is still a very original movie for cartoons. The story is simple enough, a geeky nerd growing up on an island builds device that converts atmospheric moisture into food to go. Of course, like any good cartoon, the machine goes awry and our protagonists must team up to save their home. The animation is good, but not meant to be jaw-droppping realism. The soundtrack is good, and the dialogue is snappy. Probably the best part is the humor; everything from the predatory rotisserie chickens to the father's eyebrows are all original humor. I guess when you make a movie about food, you have to cross out the jokes about pies in the face as they would be to cliche.
Overall, a wonderful movie, and my bet for best cartoon of 2009; yes even better than Pixar's Up.
