You sound like an old boss of mine. He thought if a movie was animated then it must be only for kids. You are missing a lot. Nemo, Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., all of them are for adults as well as kids. They work on many levels, although it seems the adult levels flew right over your head.<br><br><br>
Mindless stare? C'mon, Sam. That's not just harsh, it's wrong. You'd be amazed at how much an adult can learn from a 5-year-old.<br><br>And if Ice Age is a dry hump with an ugly broad, then gimme sloppy seconds and thirds and... That movie is a hoot!<br><br>No soup for you! <br><br>
A lot of the Muppet movies are like that, too. One of my very most favoritest is Muppet Treasure Island with Tim Curry. When my youngest was 4 or 5, we'd watch it together and laugh hysterically at entirely different gags. Now that she's 12-going-on-26, we still watch it, but seem to be laughing at the same jokes. <br><br>

"You'd be amazed at how much an adult can learn from a 5-year-old."<br><br>Why? Are you cramming for the incontinent years? <br><br>"And if Ice Age is a dry hump with an ugly broad, then gimme sloppy seconds and thirds and..."<br><br>Ice Age may have a moment here or there. But it doesn't hold a candle to the quality of Pixar's stuff; technically or story-wise. Fox proved their incompetence with Robots...that one is second only to Shark Tale as the worst animated feature yet. Sadly, the future doesn't look too promising for Fox Animation: Horton Hears A Who and—gulp—Ice Age 2.<br><br>

Hell, A Bug's Life was yet another clone of The Seven Samurai fer cryin' out loud! <br><br>Technology? Some do it right and some don't. But it only matters if you're tuned into that stuff. Most of us enjoy a movie for it's entertainment value, not it's pixel prowess.<br><br>Yer too frickin' picky Sam. Now shaddap and hand me that box of Depends. <br><br>
Yer making a lot of presumptions about me. I own most of the movies that have been discussed here. I like to stock up because the only source of English my kid gets besides talking to me over here is videos that I bought or had sent from the States. I am well aware these movies were made with adults in mind as well to keep them entertained. And I have been entertained many times. I dare to say that I have seen most of these movies more than any one else who has posted here. I can practically quote Toy Story II word for word (ahem, we could use some more videos if any one feels like shipping some over to us).<br><br>I made one comment that Pixar is aiming for the kids, and someone takes that comment in it's narrowest meaning. You aren't going to lecture me about disparaging the diligent craftspeople over in Emeryville too are you?<br><br>
