Hi guys! Happy labor day weekend! I’ve been having a lot of fun with my sister in town, but I was able to rewatch Persepolis and watch Surf’s Up for the first time. I just posted my video on the 2007 Oscars and I think all 3 films are very creative.
Ratatouille and Persepolis both made my Top 50 Animated Films Countdown and my Most Artistic Animated Films, so clearly I like both of them a lot. It’s tough to pick which one deserved to win because they are both so different and I appreciate them for different things. I went with Ratatouille because I love the ending so much but I can totally see going with Persepolis as well. It’s a fantastic film that helped introduce many to a whole new ‘adult’ side of animation.
As I said, I had never seen Surf’s Up and I really liked it! It’s very creative with the way it applies a documentary approach to an animated film. The humor works. The ocean and surfing scenes look gorgeous and I liked the message about winning and competition. It’s a very strong film.
So, all 3 are great but in the end I think the right film won. What about you? Which would you pick?
