This is tough, as I saw several movies that I liked, although they’re all very different.
Even though I didn’t see it until this weekend, I think I’m going to have to go with Tangled.
I love Disney movies. I love musicals. I’ve been lamenting the fact that Disney went so long without making a musical. So, I wondered, why Disney took such great pains to NOT LET ANYONE KNOW THIS WAS A MUSICAL. (with music by Alan Menken, no less…who also wrote the music for The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin among others)
At any rate, Tangled was fantastic. I loved it, and it will soon find a place among my favorites.
Last year was a great year for animated features…I also saw Toy Story 3 (sob!) and How to Train Your Dragon.
For non-animated, well, I haven’t seen a lot of the big ones, but I did see (and very much enjoy) The Social Network. Great writing, great performances, and a compelling story out of something that didn’t seem like it could make for such a compelling story. I also enjoyed The Kids Are All Right.
What were your favorites, and what do I need to see?
