Tito and the Birds


  1. If I Nominated for Best Animated Feature:
    (11 of the 25 submissions seen; out of 177 new releases seen overall)
    — Incredibles 2
    — Isle of Dogs
    — Lu Over the Wall
    — MFKZ
    — The Night Is Short, Walk on Girl

    1. Isle of Dogs and The Night Is Short, Walk on Girl are my favorites out of these 25 submissions. I really hope at least one of them gets nominated and wins.

      Incredibles 2 winning would be such a joke. I quite like the film, but I felt at once, and more people are slowly realizing, that it wasn’t the glorious return they were really hoping for. Isle of Dogs and Night Is Short… are much bolder and impressive films.

      Incredibles 2 is the definition of "safe" for this year's category, while Ralph 2 is the definition of "makeup" given the first film's arguably upset loss to Brave. (I think the first Ralph's belated early 2013 British release led British voters to give Brave the votes it needed to overtake Ralph.)

      It'll disappoint me greatly if the ultimate category is Incredibles 2, Ralph 2, Smallfoot, TTG!, and Spider-Man. Proof, once and for all, that opening the nominating phase to those from the entire voting membership who opt in was an atrocious joke of a decision.
