View Full Version : Pixar's new Short Film: "Boudin" Review

11 November 2003, 04:23 PM

-Short Film Review: BOUNDIN'. Pixar's latest short BOUNDIN' could best be classified as humor-light: inoffensive, bordering on sappy, so utterly charming and sweet that it makes you feel dirty watching it. Our world simply can't be this happy-go-lucky and feel-good. Well our world be damned. This is Pixar's world and indeed it can, and it will, be this joyful. Everything about this film is fun and beautiful: the art direction, the character designs, the music (also by the director, Pixar veteran Bud Luckey), and especially the character animation. This is some of the sharpest and funniest computer animation I've seen, no lethargic CG timing here; at times the characters move with the vigorous snappy timing of a George Pal Puppetoon, at other times they exude the fluid appeal of the best hand-drawn character animation from the Golden Age. Much like FOR THE BIRDS and GERI'S GAME, I'm going to want to see this film many times over to appreciate all its subtle nuances and absolute greatness. When Pixar is good, they are GOOD, and in the current world of CG character animation, one would be hard-pressed to find any studio that approaches their league. Cheers to Bud Luckey and crew!

I think for us mere mortals, we have to wait till incredibles roles around to see it :cry:

I can't wait to see it. I was hoping we'd see a short come out with Finding Nemo, but I guess I can wait. It would be cool if they did more of them, though.

I got the chance to watch BOUNDIN today, and I have to say it was really good. Very different from their other shorts, but it still has that great Pixar feel.

Apparently Boundin' now qualifies for the Oscar for Animated Short. Maybe this will improve our odds of seeing it before Siggraph or the Incredibles release.
