It’s not easy being an animation fan today. It’s obvious that a fraction of the animated film is anything but pure corporate product. Disney has lost its way. AFI named Shrek one of the top ten animated films of all time (WTF?) I might totally give up on the genre if if weren’t for two names – Hayao Miyazaki, and Pixar. In the thirteen years since the latter released Toy Story, the already-legendary picture house has yet to produce a bad film. And after WALL·E, the studio’s ninth and quite possibly best film, all of the shortcomings of the animation industry suddenly seem so easy to overlook.
