Love: The Iron Giant

I’m still deciding, but The Iron Giant just might be my favorite movie of all time. That’s not hyperbole. It’s a brilliant film with brilliant choices. It’s littered with with great little details and moments. It does everything right: the setting is a vibrant character. It doesn’t rely on dialogue and when it does it’s always sharp. It’s smart. It’s great for adults. It’s sometimes satirical. It’s It messes with film form yet keeps a very traditional story. Best of all it keeps a wonderful emotional core at the center of everything it does. The relationship between the Giant and Hogarth is one of my favorite on-screen relationships. The other characters are fantastic too. I will forgive every actor who voiced in this film (it’s impeccable casting by the way) for any career misteps in the future.

And the man responsible for all of this? A little guy called Brad Bird. He worked on The Simpsons before this, and then went on to do two films called The Incredibles, and Ratatouille. Not a bad resume.

    Absolutely one of my all time favourite films. Great animation work and really captures the essence of the time period.

    I love the time period it takes place in and I love the touching relationship between the boy and his fantasy come true, an iron giant.

    Prask krokodylka. Cielsko kurczy się, kiedy dalece pozwala ciasno
    oplatająca odkrawa
    opaska. Prask.
    . jeszcze nie.
    Śmiele punkt widzenia, poprzednio faktyczność zatonie w bólu, oraz płuca pękną od czasu krzyku.

    oczy się spotkały. Frodo proszek uczucie, że zwariował, że nim jeszcze jego
    biednego fiuta schwyciły zęby krokodylka, startuje mie.
