Just saw Spirit. And the animation itself was nice, the backgound art was quite lovely for the most part, and everything seemed pretty well pulled off despite the sappiness of the story, but... something bothered me throughout that whole movie...

... Horses don't have eyebrows, damn it.

They humanized the horses, as almost anyone will tell you is necessary to make an audience sympathize with a non-human character. And for a children's movie, it's all fine and dandy.
... But... but... EYEBROWS. And the fact that they gave them human eyes. As I recall, you usually don't see the whites of a horses' eyes unless they are very upset. So the entire movie I was, on a basic level, rather confused by the wide-eyed equines. Their movement looked... off... in some places. More humanizing, or maybe just not enough effort put into making them seem like they have actual weight and mass. They seemed so light.
... Or am I just picking the living hell out of a cartoon 'cause I got nothing better to do? Oh wait, yes, yes I am.
Lilo and Stitch, though... I wanna see that. Stitch is the cutest thing I think I've ever seen. Little blue ... thing... Who cares what he is, he's adorable. Will see.
Next on the 'movies to see' list.. Spidey, Insomnia, and... uh... that's it. I think. About a Boy is apparently good. Perhaps that. Only if I decide to leave the house, mind you. At the moment I'm content to remain here. I think I'll go have a nap. (A Lazy Slug? Who, me? Betcher ass)
