The rest of these animated sequences depend on gimmickry, cuteness, or facile ideology.

It provides some fine artists the chance to stretch and frolic, even as it reminds today's audiences of animation's limitless borders.

This must be the most belated sequel the movies have produced.

It's not that the images aren't pretty, or that great care hasn't gone into them -- it's that the sensibility behind them is so icky, limited in its conception of beauty to picture postcards and the sort of paintings you see in chain hotels.
