I'm probably not qualified to talk about the year's best movies, because -- being the father of a 9-year-old -- I made it to relatively few of them that did not feature talking animals. However, thanks to the graces of Blu-Ray, I did get my eyes popped out by Inception, one of the best movies I've seen in many moons. Now I just need to wait for the discs to come out on the other grown-up films. So, which were your favorites?
Speaking of talking animals, one of the best-looking movies I've ever seen -- both in the 3D version in the theater and the Blu-Ray at home -- was Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole. I know everyone else loved How to Train Your Dragon and Toy Story 3 (justifiably), but for sheer visuals I've never quite had my socks knocked off as I did with Ga'Hoole. It lags the other two in writing, though it's still a strong enough story -- but holy cow, this kind of animation is really stunning, and most grown-ups will never see it.
For the parents out there ... what were your favorite kids' movies?
