- Getting Animated: Our Favourite AnimationsThe Ralph Bakshi animated version of Lord of the Rings, was always one of my favourite films. It was a real shame that for whatever reason, a second film wasn't make to finish off the story, as it ends part way through the Two Towers. The filming of live action and then animating over the top, give the film a different look and feel. If you've seen A Scanner Darkly, then it uses the same technique. This is a great film. In the pre-Jackson days, this was how you had to get your cinematic Middle Earth fix. Now, it will probably sink into obscurity, but it really does deserve to be seen, and not as a novelty on the back of the success of the Jackson films, but as a film to be seen and enjoyed in it's own right.
- Getting Animated: Our Favourite AnimationsI absolutely loved Belleville-Rendezvous (also known as The Triplets of Belleville) A beautifully animated, witty, funny, artistic, and charming film, it was originally released in France and animated by the aforementioned Sylvian Chomet. It follows an old woman whose grandson is kidnapped while cycling the Tour de France - along with her dog, Bruno, and the Belleville Triplets, an aged dancing troupe, she sets out to rescue him. As well as being an excellent film, Belleville-Rendezvous has a special place in my heart as being the first animated film I watched that wasn't Disney or Pixar. Seeing such a vastly different style of animation, loaded with charm and sophistication that Disney's schmaltzy, cheesy stories lack, inspired me to discover more animated films from different countries...leading me to Studio Ghibli and a minor obsession with French Animation.
