The Wolf, Chicken and Goldfish

Peter and the Wolf is a super entertaining animation short that won the oscar in 2007. It's a great little flick with terrific stopmo.

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead is a Troma cheese-fest I'll never watch again. A clear case of Lloyd Kaufman trying too hard doing too much in one flick. None of the charm from the better Troma flicks is found here. Good to throw on if you're doing something else like paying bills.

Gake no ue no Ponyo is the latest in the Hayao Miyazaki canon. I really enjoyed this anime movie altho I don't think it compares to his previous work. And I didn't quite understand exactly what it was about. Hopefully it'll get a domestic release someday and I can check it out again.
