Movie Monday - 2/21/2011

The Illusionist is a sweet little animated movie about an aging magician having a hard time getting good gigs.  He meets a young girl in a small village who decides she needs to become his traveling companion, believing that his magic is some sort of supernatural power.  And so, the two start a sort of father/daughter relationship.  This movie was inked by the same illustrators as The Triplets of Belleville.  I thought this film was not as entertaining as Triplets, but it was cute.

Toy Story 3 is another incarnation of the adventures of a group of toys whose children grow up and pass them along to another group of kids.  Tom Hanks, Joan Cusack, Tim Allen, Michael Keaton, Ned Beatty, Bonnie Hunt, Don Rickles and Estelle Harris are among the actors who lent their voices to the characters in this animated film that has been nominated for Best Picture, as well as Best Animated Picture.  It was cute, but not Best Picture material...Best Animated Picture - you bet!

Sorry so short, but my duties call....

MK out.
