Five delightful animated shorts...

Feb 10, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Proves that it was still a good year for animation, even if audiences were underwhelmed by the mainstream feature fare.

Feb 9, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Magic, whimsy, a fair amount of darkness (loneliness, aging, death, zombie apocalypses) and a wonderful mix of old-school cartooning and digital animation are on tap...

There are strong years for short films at the Oscars and there are weaker years, and 2012 appears to be one of the latter.

A consistently strong category that this year once again demonstrates a range of stunning styles from simple line drawings to computer-generated imagery.
