Am I the only one who REALLY likes this movie?
30 March 2005 | by takken_janaraeSee all my reviews

This is one of my favorite movies, and is my current obsession. My family also loves it. "Boo, Zino & The Snurks" (or as I'd rather call it, "Back to Gaya") is an awesome little movie, if you know what to look for. The makers of this movie were aiming for something a bit more realistic than Pixar and added several little details that put them over the top. The 3D artists had a nice "realistic but not TOO realistic" style, here. The script was the same way. It was lacking in constant outrageous and wacky comedy (ie: Shrek; The Incredibles), but that's not a bad thing! Since when was this supposed to be a wild comedy, anyway? The movie gives a nice friendship and teamwork message, not to mention the whole "discrimination is bad" issue. Great for the young and the young at heart. I believe that the only thing the movie was missing was good advertising. The DVD cover is definitely nothing special. A 9 out of 10 from me, but only because the English version has been heavily cut apart, unlike the German version. I wish there was more of this movie (or at least more on the same subject) to see. (... And that people would stop picking on it so much...)

Though now that I'm reading through other peoples' comments... Maybe you just need to have the mind of a child to see how good this movie is (or at least was supposed to be), despite the things that may be wrong with it.
