Lol. I'm sure Franks top 10 animated movies list is a sight to behold. However, when comparing to Pixar movies, it's not in the top 5.
Banding is still there on my monitor, another website review has also mentioned it. I have not experienced any banding with Pixar titles. I might be in the minority when it comes to my opinion on the sharpness but let's wait until more people get the disc. I don't put it down to my setup because as i've said, the pixar titles and kung fu panda are sharp as a tack.
How to Train Your Dragon is the weakest CGI film I own. I will explain why -
* Weak main character (I would go as far as to say annoying)
* Basic and mostly uninspired plot
* A number of boring/slow scenes
* Few likable characters; the female Viking was about the only one I warmed up too
* Humor is only so-so
Battle scene at end == amazing (I was really impressed) but one scene does not make up for a whole movie.
I am not even sure it would make my top 10. Kung Fu Panda, Up, all 3 TS's, Robots, two of the Shrek's, Nemo, Monsters Inc, Monsters v Aliens...all were better, IMO.
