We watched "Horton Hears A Who" and "Dark Shadows" on the weekend. I loved both of them for obviously different reasons.
The animation and voice cast for Horton were amazing. Everyone was suited to their part (the kangaroo even looked a little like Carol Burnett
) and some of the lines were priceless - good for kids and adults!
I used to watch Dark Shadows on TV when I was a kid. A long time ago but it was surprising how I remembered the characters and how the movie was similar and different from the show. The movie was very campy, but I love campy and wouldn't expect less from the Burton/Depp team. Johnny Depp is becoming one of those actors who can combine leading man and character actor in one - not an easy feat. One of the things I found funny watching the special features. Most of the actors were English with American Accents, and then there is Depp - American with an English accent. Brilliant!
