    Open Season DVD

    The other day I had a look at Open Season DVD...

    I wasn't really all that impressed with the animation, granted (you can tell by the water scenes) - but I think that the DVD may be over looked by people.

    What impresses me about it is the story is quite clever, and the special features about how the film makers made the film seems to be to be a better representation of the creative process of making a Digital Animated feature than I have seen in recent Pixar films...

    It isn't going to win any awards, but I think the film is worth a second look.

    Re: Open Season DVD

    Open Season was one of my favorite movies last year.
    I'm growing to like it even more than Cars, and certainly
    much more than Monster House or Over the Edge.

    Boog and Elliot both really grow in their friendship with
    each other, and there are some great scenes. I love
    the voice of the majority of the characters. Ashton
    Kutcher does a terrific job as Elliot, and what makes it
    so great is that I don't even recognize Ashton's voice
    while watching the movie, it really becomes the voice
    of Elliot.

    It's a very fun, and silly at times, with a bit of adventure
    too. And the part where Boog destroys the dam really has
    some terrific animation. When I originally saw this movie
    in 3D in an IMAX theater, I was VERY impressed with how
    well this scene worked in 3D. Many other animated movies
    that have tried going the 3D route (Polar Express, Monster House
    Chicken Little, even the 3D version of Nightmare Before Christmas)
    just did not have scenes that needed to be in 3D. BUT the
    river ride/water fall section of Open Season looked Fantastic in 3D.

    It's nice to see that SOMEBODY got it right for once. Congratulations
    to Sony Animation! It really is sad that this great fun movie, which
    was worked on by some former Disney people, has been overlooked
    by so many. It's not a Disney movie of course, but Sony sure did
    a heck of a job developing some great characters in Boog and Milton!

    Re: Open Season DVD

    We bought this for our trip up to the mountains this past weekend, and thought it was hilarious. The test in our house is to see how quickly my kids can memorize the lines, and they've got half the movie down two days later. There were more than a few times when we were laughing pretty hard...the convenience store, Partick Warburton as Ian, Elliot pooping while trying to explain how to poop to Boog...


    Elliot's version of the teddy bear song is our favorite:

    Once there was a magical elf
    Who lived in a rainbow tree
    He lived above a flatulent dwarf...

    Good stuff. Lot's of other inside and not so inside jokes. Elliot lighting the marshmellows a la Lord of the Rings....nice.

    Great casting as well, I must say.

    A+ and ten thumbs up from our family.

    Don't leave everyone hanging . . . . .

    Once there was a magical elf
    Who lived in a rainbow tree

    He lived downstairs
    From a flatulent dwarf

    Who was constantly having to pee

    One day the elf could take no more

    So he went and banged
    On the rude dwarf's door

    And what do you know
    They suddenly both were married
