Monsters Inc. and The Ice

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 07, 2001

Monsters Inc. and The Ice Storm are both fine movies, albeit in different ways. Pixar has taken the art of computer-generated animation to amazing levels...the fur on Sulley is amazing; it doesn't suffer at all from the dampening problems (i.e. the hair doesn't know when to stop moving) I've seen in other hair animation. Most of the time, I thought the movie was live action. As much as I enjoyed the movie, the short Pixar ran in front of the movie (called For the Birds) was even better.
