They are essentially all new twists on centuries-old stories that have proven to be popular and have stood the test of time. I could probably think of a dozen movies/books/stories just off the top of my head where a child is separated from his guardian, go through trials and travails, enlists the help of kind strangers, has some adventures, learns some life lessons, then eventually gets ruinited with whoever he was separated from in the first place. Joseph Campbell could probably name a thousand. That's not to say it wasn't good. It was a new take on Campbell's monomyth, pretty much a step-by-step re-write of the Hero's Journey.

There is essentially nothing new under the sun.

Monsters Inc was taken directly from the Bible and Wall-E was stolen from Shakespeare.

I don't know, Finding Nemo annoyed me more than any acclaimed movie I've ever seen. The one thing I hate about modern animated movies is that there is a quota for lame, forced jokes aimed right above kids heads but only meant to get a chuckle out of adults. It started with Aladdin and it's been a part of every animated movie since then. Up avoided that garbage for the most part.

Drag Me To Hell - 8/10

Atmospheric and jumpy.
I was engrossed from start to finish, and it seemed like it only went for 10 minutes.
Very much agreed with the ending.
Highly recommended.

Alison Lohman - I would. :-L
