I took the family to see the movie Rango over the weekend. My son who is eleven loved it but my daughter who is four didn’t like it enough to pay attention to it. I thought it was a really good movie that was perhaps aimed more at adults than it should have been. If you have seen some of westerns that Clint Eastwood starred in you have a good frame of reference for Rango if you haven’t you probably can’t fully appreciate it.
Rango thankfully was a 2D movie, I think 3D is way overdone and unless a movie really looks like the 3D would add something to it I prefer to see the 2D version. Rango was visually stunning for a 2D movie and shows that animation especially can achieve similar visual effects without the drawbacks of 3D.
One of the things I really enjoy about animated features is that they tend to focus more on telling a good story than the average movie.
