    Loved the review. I was debating this movie but after reading the review I can't wait to go see it. Wish I lived closer to the El Capitan, I got to see a movie there once. What a great experience.
    I love the smell of burnt coffee in the morning. ..

    Thank you Sue, sounds like a Disney theme park ride! Perhaps they can replace Honey I Shrunk the Audience with Meet the Robinsons.

    It has been a long time since I've been able to get up to LA to see a movie at the El Capitan. I've got to do that soon. Perhaps for this film!

    Thank you Sue, I just saw this film and I would have to say you nailed it with the emotional ups and downs, it came to a great close.

    There was one point in the film for me where my eyes started to wonder, but it picked right back up after the Bowler guy went to go fetch the T-Rex. Good hearted, uplifting and encouraging film. I loved the Chip and Dale short, Working For Peanuts. That was a pleasant surprise, as Sue noted. Also loved the Walt quote integrated into the film.

    Why do I get a Pixaresque feeling with this movie?
    Not exactly a Pixar like story,but man... some the visuals in this movie remind me of Pixar.

    Any clue if Pixar (or the Renderman Engine) was used on this movie?

    Personally I almost cried when I saw the Mickey short come up on the screen. I had never seen a Disney short on the big screen before. It brought a tear to my eye.

    Thumbs down Re: 3/30: Shiny!

    Sue you were waaaay to kind to this dis-jointed lackluster release. I personally felt it was the worst movie Disney has ever produced.

    The only two redeeming factors came at the beginning and end: The Donald and Chip/Dale short and the Walt Disney quote.

    I have to agree with a good friend who works "inside" he told me months ago that Meet the Robinsons "had problems"

    Lets just hope that the bad decision making that allowed this movie to be released with the Disney name attached hasn't seeped into the upcoming Pixar release.

    You must not have seen Home on the Range, Chicken Little, Dinosaur, or Brother Bear (not to mention the truckload of crappy "cheapquels").

    I found Meet the Robinson's to be a delightful return to form. I also applaud Disney's decision to re-release a classic short with the film. My son and I will definately be going to see it again.

    Overall I liked the movie. There were a couple issues I had, but I still liked it. It's DEFINATELY better than some past productions. I actually liked Brother Bear. CL & Dino are on par to me. HotR is probably the poorest production in my book. But I can still enjoy them.

    I'd rather watch MTR more than Blades of Glory again.

    Re: 3/30: Shiny!

    My biggest problem was the fact that they introduced us to around 10 characters during a musical number, what happened to character development.

    I liked Chicken Little, Brother Bear and Dinosaur, and at least Home on the Range had a somewhat followable story line.

    I don't bother with straight to DVD releases...

    That part of the movie was the closest to the book though, they were characters that needed no development. Like the uncle that like canons...thats what he does..he like canons..that's it.. the character has been developed. I didn't need to hear a story about how he saw his first canon, its unimportant, he's just a side character that likes canons.
