A finely crafted animated film that kept me amused and mesmerized at the same time. Visually the movie was creative, unique and horribly well done. It goes without saying that Johnny Depp is a classy classy gentleman and one would expect any character he were to portray to be well developed and entertaining. The same could be said about almost any character in this film. They were all thoughtfully created and well developed from looks to personality. Although the plot was seemingly basic, the writing was what set the movie apart. The dialogue was both engaging and highly amusing. Throughout the movie, my friend Captain Squiggletits and I continually looked at each other in amazement at some of the more adult jokes and themes. All of which amused me greatly. I would definitely say this movie was quite different and distinct in comparison to the typical animated movie we are used to. I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone see this movie. My only complaint may have been the length of the movie but that may just be because I often become narcoleptic in theaters. I give it a solid 7/10.

Not the airbender, unfortuntely, although the movie adaptation of that series was pretty bad in it's own right. Without losing track with how I really did enjoy the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender, I will move on to talking about Avatar: The Last Animated James Cameron Movie I'll Watch. I've been hard-pressed to find anyone who didn't absolutely love this movie except myself and his opinion is the only one that really matters. I mean sure it looked good and I could probably watch a dude poop for 2 hours if it's in 3D, but I have to admit that I was mostly bored. The most exciting thing for me was waiting for the dude from Grandma's Boy to start talking in robot voice. Needless to say, it never happened and I was sad. I'm going to end this on a high note and that high note being Grandma's Boy. Thank you, Nick Swardson.
