I was surprised to see a cel shaded short here in 2014...but I liked it.
2 January 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Feast" is a short film by Disney which is being shown before the feature "Big Hero 6". While I did like this short, I was very surprised by it graphically, as it featured cel shaded graphics-- something that was briefly popular (especially with video games) about a decade ago. Now this is NOT a complaint--I really didn't mind the look of the film at all.

The story is about a dog and its owner. The dog LOVES the owner because the guy spoils him rotten--giving it LOTS of human food. And, each time you see the dog, he's eating SOMETHING terrible for it, such as meatballs or bacon and eggs! However, when the man begins dating, suddenly the dog's diet changes--presumably because the man's diet changes to match the lady's. Now, the dog is getting good for you stuff--and the creature is miserable. While this would seem like a film that is a complaint about how women get between dogs and their beloved owners (such as in the Oscar-nominated "Adam and Dog"), it wasn't-- and its nice twist is why I am scoring this one so high. Inventive and very sweet...there's a good chance you'll see this film nominated in the Best Animated Short category at the Oscars.

UPDATE: This film won the Oscar. I assume this might be due, in part, to this being the only nominee that received a large scale release (with "Big Hero 6").
