    Interesting you say that, I actually wanted to see it based on this post, but one reviewer somewhat disagrees with you there.

    http://www.reelviews.net/php_review_...dentifier=1001

    The animation is workmanlike, which is to say that the characters and settings are nicely rendered but there are no steps forward in technique. Perhaps we have reached a state where the lush detail of computer generated images is no longer eye-popping; it has become expected. If that's the case, Kung Fu Panda delivers what's expected. There is one interesting twist: the movie opens with a dream sequence that is crudely presented using two-dimensional, exaggerated caricatures, so when the dream ends and we enter the "real" world, the contrast is stark.

    In recent years, computer animation has been in the doldrums. While Kung Fu Panda isn't the movie to re-invigorate the genre, it's made with enough technical savvy and provides sufficient fun (especially for younger viewers) that it should be a major player at the summer box office.

    Went to see Get Smart last night, but took too long eating our Parma's and the queue was too long so left and went home to watch Scrubs instead. I'd say Get Smart has probably missed it's slot now.

    Saw Wanted last week. The most tenuous storyline ever, but as an action movie, it rocks. The list of straight-up cool **** that happens in that film is almost endless.

    Also hopefully going to see Hancock this week - have high hopes for it, partly because Will Smith almost never fails to deliver, and also because Jason Bateman is in it. Legend.

    Yeah, but I'm generally not a Sci-Fi fan, so it wasn't my thing. Some qualify fx though.

    Saw Get Smart yesterday. It was OK, entertaining enough. But I just spend the whole time thinking, "Wow Don Adams was awesome." Carell plays it much more "unsure" where as original Smart was so cocksure all the time in himself. It wasn't a waste of time, but it was never going to match up to the original.

    And how can Siggy not be hilarious?

    It'll only be terrible if you expect it to be some sort of deep statement on the meaning of life. Some films are made and watched for fun, lighten up a bit.

    Sorry but the fact films like Jumper and Hancock are produced and watched annoys me no end, I mean how can anyone not see that Jumper was going to be an abysmal film? Yet films like it are constantly being produced despite being terrible.

    If people only went to see decent films, the Producers would be forced to acctualy earn their inflated salary in creating films that have a chance of being good. When everyone flocks to see the latest CGI catastrophe staring Will Smith, it just encourages in lowering the standards of comercial cinema.
    How the hell are Jumper and Hancock even comparable?

    I think he's suggesting that any film with lots of special effects can't possibly be good, which is a ridiculous statement.

    open365, if you don't like films with special effects, fine, don't go see them; but the fact that some people may find them mildly entertaining doesn't make them idiots, and the fact that movie studios produce them - and make millions of dollars from them - doesn't make them idiots either.

    The world revolves around money, my friend, and the sooner you accept that, the less time you'll spend complaining about movies/music/TV/anything else in life.
