You are never really too old to watch animated movies, are you? Some people thought that cartoons are only for kids, there are no depths in the stories. Now stop here and think if you are one of them. I don’t think there’s any harm to explore the beautiful, imaginary world of kids rather than worrying about targets, presentations, assignments all the time.
Through my today’s post whether you are going to gain a lot of surprises or not, I can assure you that you will be very lucky to have fun with this post of mine.
So welcome back to my blog with the list of top 10 animated films. Like my first post, here I have come up with the suggestion of 10 animated films which should be in your watchlist. I think, you will love to watch them and enjoy sitting with your kids.
Of course, there are the classic Disney and Pixar films, which come with some of the most endearing songs and characters in all of animated movies which are not only for kids but also for adult movie buffs.
This is not a movie of neither Disney nor Pixar. But this one satisfied me much as a film lover especially an animated film lover.
After being released in Portland International Film Festival this movie was well received by both critics and audiences. Coraline won Annie Awards for Best Music in an Animated feature production, Best Character Design in an Animated Feature Production and Best Production Design in an Animated Feature Production, and received nominations for an academy award for best animated feature film and a golden globe award for best animated feature film.
The Adventures of Tintin
Who doesn’t know Tintin? Who doesn’t want to adore his cute fox terrier snowy? Who didn’t count the slangs of Captain Haddock? Childhood idol of a lot of us is also present in this list.
Legendary director Steven Spielberg who gifted us with film’s like Jaws, Jurassic Park, E.T- the extra-terrestrial, Indiana Jones etc., has crafted another thrilling, spirited, engaging adventures of Tintin, the intrepid young reporter whose relentless pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high adventure.
Jamie Bell portrayed the role of Hergé’s Tintin. Also stars Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Toby Jones. Peter Jackson co-produced this film.
Spielberg and Hergé were admirers of each other’s work; the director acquired the rights of Tintin’s comics following the year 1983 when the great cartoonist breathed his last.
This film is the first motion captured animated film as well as a non Pixar’s to win the Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film.
So if you love tintin or not this film will impress you as a good watch in this quarantine.
Kubo and the Two Strings
Kubo and the Two Strings is one of the most beautiful example of stop-motion animated films in recent time. This 2016 animated film is inspired from Japanese ink wash painting and origami. This film has an influence which came from ukiyo-e woodblock style.
I found what a very interesting type of animated film this is. The story is also very loveable. This movie is about Kubo, a young one-eyed storyteller who lives in hiding from his evil aunts and moon king. In order to defeat them he must find his father’s suit of armour , along with Monkey (Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey).
Gorgeously animated and stirringly told this movie is an epic combination of stop-motion animation and computer-generated backgrounds with a moving and magical tale. This film is about the love of mothers and sons.
So if you like inspirational and motivational story with some fights, and a unique style of storytelling so this one is for you.
Big Hero 6
Big Hero 6 is a 2014 3D animated superhero film of Disney’s and it’s one of my favourite animated movies. This movie is loosely based on a Marvel comics of the same name.
Hiro Hamada, a young robotics prodigy teams up with Baymax and then his friends to avenge his brother’s death.
Agreeably entertaining and brilliantly animated, Big Hero 6 is briskly-paced, action packed and often touching so you will be stunned by it.
So if you like superhero genre so this movie is for you. This movie is not just only for kids.
Spiderman Into The Spider-Verse
There has been a lot of Spiderman movies in the last 20 years. Every movie is focused on our beloved Peter Parker. This movie also have Peter Parker but this movie is centred on Miles Morales. This is also the first animated feature on Spiderman. Miles is a school goer teen who becomes the Spider-Man in his reality, and joins with his counter parts from other dimensions to stop a threat.
This movie’s presentation is like you are reading
a beautifully crafted comicbook. The elements like the characters’ thoughts or Spider-senses enter the picture, they help add to the comic book illusion. Only for these specialities, this film makes anyone become the Spider-Man. It is such a joy and one of the best animated films ever made. This film bagged several awards including the Academy Award.
