This kind of CGI animation should have already been the status quo


Nuff said

It fits very well for comic book movies. I don't know about regular animated movies. The lower framerate kind of gives a sense of pages being turned very quickly.

The stop-motion-esque frame rate wouldn't need to always be included

It’s sensational. Couldn’t have been more perfect for a comic adaption.

But! Sony wants to keep it for themselves...

Understandable I guess. Lol

Great article, thanks for posting it!

You’re welcome. :)


The animation in this film is truly something else. The film as a whole is for sure one of the greatest comic book films ever made (though for this year, a certain event film takes my top spot).

it's the most beautiful animation i've ever seen.
i used this cliched, worn out word in another thread here recently to describe it, & i should avoid using it again, but it's the only one i can think of: the animation in this film is flat-out visionary.

it's a film that makes everything else i've seen, certainly hollywood large-budget films, so plain & average & tired. it's truly a breath of fresh air.

Did you see it in 3d as well? I can't imagine it not 3d

reply

i've seen it in both formats. i probably shouldn't admit this, but i've actually seen it 4 times. i rarely catch a movie twice in the theatre, & i've certainly never gone 4 times, but i think the animation in this thing is truly something to behold & i just can't get enough of it.

i generally avoid 3d showings, so my first two viewings were in regular format. i thought it looked tremendous, spectacular, & was happy to leave it at that, but i heard through a few sources that the 3d was particularly effective here, so i decided to give it a try. & i have to agree that this is one of the rare times where i think the 3d is completely worth the upcharge.

reply

Good to hear, as a big 3d fan... but I'm also a 3d snob so I only endorse the best uses, and this definitely ranks

reply

Is there some kind of 3D "double vision" in the backgrounds? I noticed it a lot on my second viewing, and thought I'd walked into a 3D showing without glasses by mistake. But no, as foreground imagery was perfectly 2D. Was that deliberate? I thought my eyes were going funny!

reply

Yes there was a lot of double vision, specifically the colors occasionally leaving the outlines, and it's much more noticeable in 3D. Is that what you mean?

reply

Yes, although I never saw the movie in 3D. I don't watch movies in 3D, or rather, can't.
