It was hard to pick, but.....

Pixar. All of them (save for Cars- blech!) are masterpieces. Who can watch Wall*E and NOT think that one in particular is a real gem? :)

I like most of Pixar's stuff, and I even loved Meet the Robinsons. But for me it's classic animation, hands down. Last 2D film they made that was great (to me, anyway) was Lilo & Stitch. When they went out of the 2D animation business back in 2004, that was a sad day.

And I refuse to get my hopes up about the Princess and the Frog, considering the last film they made in that style was Home on the Range. *gags*

I really enjoy the classic cartoons, but i kinda prefer the pixar animated movies. I just really like the vibrant colors and the storylines. I liked pretty much all of them and always get excited when a new one comes out. :mrgreen:

I like the style of animation we saw in Presto, the short that played in front of WALL-E. It had all the beauty and detail of computer animation, yet its visual style was clearly rooted in the old hand-drawn Disney and Warner Bros. shorts.

Yeah, I have to agree with this.. I actually chose the traditional (and I guess part of that is biased because I have a friend who use to be a Disney animator, and I heard about some of the goings-on) but the more I think about it the more I really love everything that Pixar is doing.

Someone in a previous post in this threat talked about how Pixar seems to be more about adults, and perhaps that *IS* why we as adults like it more, we can relate to it more.

But I find myself looking forward to every since Pixar movie that comes out.

Wow this is tough. I did like the Toy Story films a lot, but most of the pixar stuff has just been okay for me. On the other hand, there is the classic Disney films... which I will consider up until the mid 90's to include Aladdin and Lion King as being amazing. Since then, it has been downhill for that.

In the end I voted for the classics. Nothing beats sitting down to watch one of those great movies.
