    One of my favorite movies to watch when my kids were little is getting a sequel.

    Chicken Run 2 is coming to NETFLIX. I can't wait.

    I just checked, and the DVD is in the collection, but I have to admit I'm not familiar with "Chicken Run" so I'll have to give it a watch soon.

    it's pretty darned good....It's the highest grossing STOP action FILM

    ((((23rd June marks the 20th anniversary of Aardman’s much-loved feature film Chicken Run, which was first released on this day in 2000 and still remains the highest-grossing stop-motion animated film of all time!))))

    That's pretty impressive, loading it up now, so I'll let you know what I think of this in a bit :wink:

    I'm pretty partial to Tim Burton's claymation productions...

    It was fun, but I'm not sure it's the greatest Stop-Motion or Claymation ever.

    I love Corpse Bride, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Para Norman is excellent. I'm looking forward to Missing Link which I just bought a couple of days ago and should be here this weekend. Coraline is kind of creepy, but the animation is wonderful. And how can we leave out Mad Monster Party? I've got a bunch more of this type of animation in my collection, more than I realised...
    The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Isle of Dogs, The Boxtrolls, James and the Giant Peach, and of course, Wallace and Gromit; The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Probably missed a few others too...

    Chicken Run is awesome. Its such a great concept and so well executed. Basically The Great Escape with stop motion animation and chickens. Its SOOOOO good.

    For the record, I don't have time to go look them each up but many of the more recent films that Barry mentioned are not stop motion. They're CGI animation made to look like stop motion. Not all but many of them.

    Yabbut are they clay Barry? :smiley::smiley: If Chicken Run was a base it would be first base. And standing on first base, I can't even see second base. Cant.even.see.it.* And my vision is good. Like fighter pilot good. Especially with my glasses.

    *maybe I can slightly make out Wallace and Gromit. But only because I love dogs.

    Hmmm, I'm not able to put my finger on anything to the contrary. I know there was some limited CG on Corpse Bride it was primarily removal of supports for the figures.

    I don't think there is a film produced these days, live action or animation, without some CG enhancement, clean-up, being done.

    From the Corpse Bride Wikipedia page...

    Visual effects were delivered by London's Moving Picture Company (MPC), and were applied to the 1,000 or so shots in the film, though most of the effects simply painted out puppet supports and similar set equipment. Some visual effects elements—groups of birds and butterflies, were created completely in CG, though others were composited as visual effects from real-life elements.

    Not gonna lie, if I'm looking for the silver lining in a racist rant, "sugar tits" is right up there. I LOL every time I hear it.
