If you can't see the amount of beauty, hardwork, and genuine artwork in the animation of something like Brave then I think you must be blind. And I honestly don't believe you could ever get anything of that detail out of a 2D animation.

I think there could be a market for both, and in time we'll see it come back again. I'm personally getting tired of the shovelwear dreamworks style animation that floods the theatres, at least from a storytelling standpoint.


In the beginning, cgi was too plasticy and soulless, but it got better as the tech improved.

That's true, with some major uncanny valley going on as well.

But now-a-days you have some seriously impressive looking animation coming out.

Still looks that way to me. Watching TinTin was uber-creepy.

I did no think TinTim was that bad animation, though I know I am in the minority here.

TinTin was made with the same motion capture technology that made Beowulf and Disney's Christmas Carol. People have complained about the uncanny valley in that technology for a long time. I'm in the opinion though that the animation in Tintin was really good.

I don't really see that problem with movies built from the ground up to be animated. Like Pixar fare.

I loved Tintin. It was a beautiful film.
