I'm not so sure about the several false beginnings. The old gag of "Once Upon A Time..." is tired and old. Especially in this context where Disney has their bookend beginning, the the new Disney logo, then false beginning, and another one, another one, etc. It makes you want to say: "Get on with the film alredy!"
But once you do get into the film, I think it looks really good. I have to say that I'm pretty excited about this film. I hope it stays good.
I have to say, not only is this one of the best animated films I had ever seen, it's one of the best films I have ever seen. This is easily the best thing that Aardman has done, and I'm a big fan of Aardman's work. I don't want to say anything more, I don't want to spoil anything (unlike Seward St did last week, I really wish he would not have done that). Talk about classic film making techniques, he really established the characters, their historys, and their obsessions with one camera pan before the credits even came up. It reminded me of Hitchcock's Rear Window. All the characters are top notch, with great animation. The rabbits are just amazing, I don't know how they did so many at once. It also has great references to Jaws, Teen Wolf, and American Werewolf in London to name a few.
Go see it, you'll enjoy it quite a lot. I certainly had a great time.
It was also nice to see that they listed the baby's born during production of the film (Production Babys). A couple good friends of mine had a baby named Felix who I was happy to see in the list. I was really hoping Quinn would make it into Madagascar's credits but they didn't do that:(
I should add that the night was toped off by gong to Ameba next door and finding not one, not two but three really rare DJ Shadow Live CDs, all used, all for under 8.99. It was just a good night all around:)

It took me a long time to see this video by Joel Trussel: "War Photographer". His website has been hit a lot after getting rave reviews on Drawn and ColdHardFlash. But the video was moved and I was finally able to check it out. I have to say it's one of the coolest things I've seen. Awesome character design, awesome idea, great timing. Very cool. Check it out:

It's sad to loose all this history. I don't think this will stop them from making new films. Especally with W&G opening the number 1 spot with: 16.1M

I hope you got your homework uploaded.
Explenation: (In Seattle, in the newspapers have a persanalls collum for people who see other people and would have liked to say hello, but for some reason or other didn't get a chance to. The collum was there to help those people get a second chance. I'm not trying to pick up on anyone here, but I thought they style was appropreate for this.)
