I'm pretty proud that we've got everything on this list except the bonus Korean film that I haven't heard of. The comments are great to read. Nice to see some love for the non-mainstream films.

Wow, the most emphatic "Nooooooo!" going to Plague Dogs? I'm surprised. I mean, it's not my favourite film but I always figured it to be a bit of a critic's darling... sort of the "Grave of the Fireflies" for the canine set. ;)

I really enjoyed Secret of Kells, although I thought that the story was maybe spread a bit too thin for its own good. Wonderful visuals though (see them in HD if you can).

The Thief and the Cobbler is a film whose history I find more interesting than the film that came out of said history. Though I would rather watch the "recobbled" version than that which came to theatres.

Hoodwinked: I've little opinion on this, beyond that I'm in no rush to watch it.

Rock & Rule: Another film I find more interesting due to its history than the actual film. I probably should watch it again and form an opinion on it in writing. I remember it being okay, but sort of a 5-6/10 or 2.5 star movie, not a bad film, but nothing I'll jump to watch again anytime soon.

Plague Dogs: I watched this, a long while back and cannot remember too much about it, apart from the bleakness of the whole thing.

Cat's Don't Dance: Look at me, I'm gonna be the Cat to See. I'm going down in History, just Watch Me.

Eight Crazy Nights: I do like how this article basically notes that you should "move along", even if you're a Sandler fan. After watching this film, I thought it was pretty vile and not worth adoration.

Ernest & Celestine: I'd kind of explain this film as a watercolour painting come to life, a little rough around the edges plot wise, but otherwise a nice gentle film that I'd recommend.

Starchaser: Never seen it. That it's made by Filmation doesn't entice me to either.

Mary and Max: A part of me wants to see this, mostly due to the acclaim it got here. However, I should note that Harvie Krumpet left me a tad cooler than it did others. May have to watch Harvie again.

Aachi and Ssipak: Erm, no comment.

Starchaser is actually kind of hilarious as a wanna-be animated Star Wars.

Well Filmation also did do BraveStarr and I think the animated Star Trek.
