    Re: 'BOLT' - MiceChat reviews

    What a great movie!!! I got to see it yesterday at the El Cap in 3-D (which made it even more fun!). I liked this movie so much more than the last couple of Pixar movies and am so glad to have seen it. It once again showcases the importance of friendship, which for me, has always been one of Pixar's biggest themes. I loved the releationship between Mittens and Bolt (my favorite part is watching her teach Bolt how to be a dog...so cute). I have to agree with aashee, the pigeons were hilarious!

    On the technical side, the animation was outstanding. Pixar just gets better with each film. The 3D effects were amazing too, really made some of the scenes just pop out.

    So I give it a , and encourage everyone to go see it...great fun!

    This was a Disney Animation Studios release, not Pixar. NNL thought the same thing though!

    And I agree, it was a great movie!

    I love Bolt! (Well Mittens more technically, since she is my favorite character, but you get the idea)

    Make sure you see it in 3D if your going, the opining scene won't be the same without the extra effect.

    I also love my Bolt t-shirt and poster I got for working at Disney Store!
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

    the opening numbers are not looking all that great at only 27million.

    I sure hope everyone that has not seen it go out today and fill the theaters as well as during the week to help push it up during the thanksgiving Holiday.


    It really is a great film I am sure that it is much better than Madgascar which open huge

    Bolt was wonderful! The animation was breathtaking. The voice talent was spot on. The story was truly inventive and kept me guessing on what will happen next. My favorite characters had to be the two cats in the studio. They were hilarious. (I just happen to have a skinny black cat and a fat siamese at home.) Had to run out to Toys R Us to pick up a Bolt plush! Way to go Disney. I hope more people see this wonderful film.

    Re: 'BOLT' - MiceChat reviews

    Bolt was a big hit with our group yesterday. Even my hubby was seen laughing A LOT throughout the movie. Rhino definitely steals the show - and has all the good lines.

    I really liked the friendship aspect of the story. Unlikely friends are the best kind, really.

    The part that hit me mid movie was that there were definitely elements of Toy Story 1 & 2 in this. Bolt is a combination of Woody & Buzz (devotion to Andy, thinks he's a space ranger) while Mittens is a little bit Jessie at her bitter moments. But it is a combination that works!
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    Haven't seen it yet, but we will before christmas break is over. I have to say...27 million....ouch. Not sure who got to this date first, i.e. Twilight vs. Bolt, but if Disney got there first, they should have moved it up or back. Twilight left it in the weeds. For a major animated feature, I think they would have been expecting upwards of 40, and hopefully at least one first place weekend. To open in third does not bode well at all for Disney animation. Pixar keeps knocking them out, and Disney keeps missing for some reason. Marketing? Too close to Madagascar?

    Bummer.

    Originally, Harry Potter was set to premier on the 21st, but WB moved it, leaving Twilight to take the spot. I honestly believe they should have switched HSM3 around with Bolt, probably would have been better for them.

    Re: 'BOLT' - MiceChat reviews

    I haven't gone to see Bolt yet, but I certainly plan to. To me, this looks like Disney finally got a fully computer animated film done right. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Meet the Robinsons, but I didn't love it.

    It's really saying a lot when I am this excited for Bolt because I strongly dislike Miley Cyrus and while we don't see her, her voice is extremely recognizable. I know I can look past that because all the characters look extremely cute and well done in this film. I can't wait!

    Thanks to those posting reviews.

    Australia Period Adventure Fox 2,600
    Four ChristmasesComedy Warner Bros. (New Line) 3,200+

    if twilight loses steam during the week and BOLT gets good word of mouth it might be capable of moving up to second place. I do not really see much competition this week

    Re: 'BOLT' - MiceChat reviews

    While I have not seen Bolt, I do plan on going. I think that the opening weekend had nothing to do with Twilight. I really don't believe that they are the same audience. I think that people are not in a rush to see this film, but they do want to see it and take their kids. Animated animals have been done before. It really does not look as interests as, say fish in the sea with Nemo or superheros. The girl character does not look right. She does not look pleasant to look at. I have not seen a picture of her smiling yet. All of Walt's characters had smiles, except for Alice.

    Re: 'BOLT' - MiceChat reviews

    I guess I'll see it, eventually, but the previews...and overall reviews...haven't inspired me thus far. The previews give me an impression of somewhat cliche'd (did I spell that right?) characters and humor, and only above average animation. And the reviews...which are important to me since I don't want to spend my money on everything that comes out...have averaged a "B" among critics.

    It was enjoyable enough. I don't know why, but I had a really hard time getting into it. It was fun, funny, had emotion, etc. I don't know if I was expecting more or what, but I found myself actually bored in a few spots and looking at my watch.

    My brother said the same thing. In fact, fell asleep in some parts. He was disappointed in the animation and felt as if Disney slipped back to their old ways of just getting the movie done on time and under budget.
