Bebop is better than most live-action anythings. I don't think any live-action anything is better than Bebop anyway, just tied with it, and that's talking the very best of live-action stuff.

I love it. Sometimes I think that it is my favorite form of animation due to the amount of work that is put in for every frame. But then I watch The Lion King or Beauty and the Beast and my mind changes.

I haven't seen a lot of stop motion/claymation outside of the usual suspects like Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run, NBC, and Coraline.etc . I do like it though.

I missed this post initially. I adore stop-motion. Actually, less 100% stop-motion and more dynamation and the like, a la Harryhausen. I went through a big Disney phase about a decade ago and of course I respect the work that goes into most cel animation (CG rarely impresses me and the only full-CG movie I go crazy for is Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children) but in the animation world, stop-motion is where it's at for me. Puppetry... well, I guess in the Stan Winston sense, sure. I'm not so much for marionettes or other puppet-type things... unless there's something I'm forgetting/ignorant of.

His shorts might contain his best work. He isn't exactly one for holding a two hour narrative. I do love Alice, though, but I don't recall that being a long feature at all.

I agree with you in part because his shorts are pure concentrated amazing, but Lunacy is a two hour narrative of his that works.

I guess I'll keep posting my thoughts on Futurama here.

The Series Has Landed-- Much better than the first episode. I haven't laughed this much at an animated show in a while (well, since I saw Avatar: TLA last year), and it was surprisingly thought provoking. And Bender's awesome.

I, Roommate- A Bender episode, therefore it is great. My favorite part was when he was sober. And I'm loving Katey Segal's performance.

Bender is one of the best animated characters ever.

I want to watch Neongenesis Evangelion, but even though they said they had 8 copies, they actually separated each disc and count them as an individual disc. So, when I ordered it, they only sent me disc five, and I don't feel like driving 40 minutes to the branch where they have the discs.

I hope I get to it someday. I've been thinking of watching the latest movies first.
