Story isn't important, It's all about the visuals.
I'm a sucker for CGI movies, meaning I end up watching a lot of movies that people think are aimed at kids / young audiences.
But they entertain me and that's the important thing.
So, post your top 5 CGI movies and a little info on why they're worth watching. Here's mine: (with hotlinked images that probably won't work.)REMEMBER: This topic isn't about the story or characters of said-movies. It's about the visuals!
WALL-E : No (real) voices for the first 25 minutes yet a story is told and emotion plays a heavy part. Visually it's superb. (It's also quite funny.)
Tangled : Yes it's a kids film, it's also a love story... but it's also got some awesome lighting and damn-fine cloth animation.
Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within : 5+ years ahead of it's time. Superb cloth + hair animation as well as awesome facial work.
How To Train Your Dragon : It's an animated movie about dragons. I loved it instantly. Looks great in 2D but was better in 3D. Once again, a movie that's colourful when needed but capable of darker emotions when the story called for it.
Avatar : Described as a "technical masterpiece" - and I can't bring myself to argue. It's colourful, vivid and interesting... even without the "story".
I'd like people to post full CGI stuff like above, but movies like Sky Blue (originally called Wonderful Days):
are welcome too! (A blend of 3D environments with 2D characters is usually very interesting.)
