Sublime! Not a Hollywood cookie cutter. (by trint)
I understand the less than stellar reviews from some. This movie is not Toy Story or Madagascar. Don't expect to see Buzz Lightyear kitsch, or Shrek fart-jokes. It is a fairy tale of the finest sort.I am a long time fan of CGI animation, since the days before Pixar was a household name and I do love Toy Story . The artistry and technical achievements in this film leave me speechless. The characters emoted better than many live-action films. They did seem to cut a couple of corners on non-critical characters. The cat was pretty bad by comparison, but it's only in two scenes. The <more>
feel is very literary, as it should be. And you get the feeling they made some sacrifices to get the book to the screen. Don't they always? The film makes me want to read the book and see what I missed. Still, the story stands well on it's own.The voice talent What a star packed cast!! was held in check allowing the story to shine through. You don't find yourself thinking, "Hey, it's Robin Williams!" or "Hey, it's Mike Meyers!" Thank God! Instead, you enjoy the characters and only momentarily think, "I know that voice." It may be too cerebral read "old skool" for some of today's iPod, Dragon Ball Z, Nintendo DS, 24/7 non-stop stimulation generation, but it's exactly the kind of story they need.
Fantastic Film. Superb Story-telling. (by eldersgrowdown)
I loved this film. Definitely the best film of the year in my opinion. It's full of inspiration. The film was written after the novel by Kate DiCamillo of the same name as the film. The novel won the 2003 Newbery Medal. I have just started listening to the audio book of the novel and it starts off just as inspiring.Although it is a children's fantasy film it has a whole lot for the adults. One of my favorite films to date. Fantastic, next to Peaceful Warrior. Not sure about the other comments on here, I guess we have to live with them. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I did, <more>
because I really loved it and so did everyone I spoke to that's seen it. With an all-star cast this movie truly stands out. Don't miss this one!
This was the best animated movie I saw this Year! I'm 21 by the way Wall*e and Bolt were cute but weren't inspiring at all to me. Lately all of the animated movies I've seen just didn't cut, well Kung fu Panda was awesome but I was beginning to get scared that it was going end for animated movies. Iwent back and saw it three times! First with and my sister, then with my nieces and nephew, and again with my friends. I might just go back and see it again, I know my friends do. I'm sad to hear and read that a lot of people didn't enjoy the movie, especially being that <more>
it actually had a moral in it. I just would like to say that this is a worth seeing movie. Everyone I've met and spoke to enjoyed as well. ^_^
A breath of fresh air, easily the best 3D animated movie of the year (by PopcornChickens)
Since it wasn't made by Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks, or Sony, many people will sadly overlook this beautiful film. Yet it is one of the most outstanding movies this year. Hands down. It is amazing.Despereau is visually magnificent, with interesting and varied character designs, outstanding animation, and an enchanted world which feels more like a storybook than anything before it. The soft lighting and muted color palette give the movie a more serious tone and wondrous atmosphere compared to other recent "brighter" animations such as Bolt or Wall-E. When you watch The Tale of <more>
Despereaux, it feels like you are watching an important film with a message.The voice acting is excellent, with Matthew Broderick and Dustin Hoffman giving heartfelt performances as the main characters. All of the other characters are equally as good, though. William H. Macy and Kevin Kline also give masterful, subtle dialog that really makes their characters come alive. Most importantly, Sigourney Weaver serves as an excellent narrator setting the tone of the movie beautifully. She has a very maternal, calming voice which makes you feels as if you are a kid again, being read to before bedtime.Despereaux feels like more of a wholesome movie than anything else in recent memory. Unlike Bolt or Wall-E, which both had MAJOR problems structurally, Despereaux delivers a very well crafted story where subplots intertwine, heroes evolve, lessons are learned, and evil is triumphed over. It is unlike any other recent animations, which dumb-down the story and rely on slapstick.Most importantly it has a message. It is a movie that parents should be proud to take their children to.
An interesting watch, something out of the ordinary (by spinatai)
I can't say I was expecting much before going to this film: I hadn't heard anything about it prior entering the cinema, and the fact that it was an animation didn't appeal to me. I went to see it just because my little sister wanted to watch it very much, so I really didn't have much choice.Firstly, the colours and the overall atmosphere of the movie was something unusual. The film can be divided into three parts: happy beginning, dismal middle, and of course, the happy ending. The feel and atmosphere of every part is enhanced by the change of colours: bright, warm colours <more>
dominate the beginning and the end of the animation, while faded and cold colours dominate the middle.Secondly, I enjoyed how three different types of society were reflected. The first and most apparent would be the Kingdom of Dor, suffering from an incompetent ruler who puts his emotions first, while the interests of the kingdom are second. The second type would be the Ratworld, a consumerist, primitive society, which is ruled on the basis of "the leader is he who provides food and entertainment". The last type is the Mouseworld, a society governed by fear of rule-breaking, emphasising the importance of "fitting-in".Although I liked the middle part of the movie the gloomy one , I was wondering, if it was appropriate for children, as it brought up such issues as revenge, abolishment of one's principles, treachery. I doubt if kids can make the correct interpretations or conclusions , so explaining or talking to them after the movie would be reasonable.The ending was typical of fairy tales: everyone except for the bad guys is fine and lives happily ever after ? .In all, the movie exceeded my expectations. The moral issues brought up, the atmosphere, the unusual development of the story, the happy ending- everything was delivered in a nice way, the only thing that made the movie lose a star 9/10 is the doubt that children would fully understand it.In all, in all, a nice watch :
Wonderful film is more like reading a really good meaty book that you want to curl up with and lose yourself in (by dbborroughs)
Okay we applauded at the end and I got teary at times.I have no idea when I last saw an animated film this complex made in the US. I mean that in a good way. I also have to wonder when was the last time I saw a real meaty fairy tale on screen, Strings perhaps oh what a great double feature that will be How the heck do I explain this simply? I have no idea. Perhaps by saying this is the story of a mouse named Despereaux who isn't afraid of anything, who reads the stories of a knights and chivalry and takes an oath to be a gentlemen, who helps a princess trapped in a castle and a kingdom <more>
caught in gloom.One of the most beautiful animated films, possibly the best looking computer animated film yet with a lush scheme that makes it look like various paintings by people like Vermeer. At other times this is the equivalent of book illustrations come to life. As good as the trailers look the film itself is even better. If you love art both fine and animated, see this film since the film references numerous works.For the most part this is a beautifully adapted film that is like curling up with a good book.Where recent films like City of Ember or Twilight or even the Harry Potter films have links to their source novels that make them less then stand alone movies, this film takes the book and puts it on the screen and doesn't dumb it down or make it so you need to have read the book. You have real fleshed out characters of surprising complexity What is a character like Dustin Hoffman's doing in a film that is "for children?" I don't care frankly because its wonderful . These are not one note sketches but living breathing people. It doesn't rush things, this is a film that takes its time telling the story and requires you actually pay attention. Despereaux doesn't show up for at least fifteen minutes as we get a long run up of why things are the way they are.Its wonderful since it beautifully lays out the world we are walking through. Its a real fairy tale movie that is much more complex than anything that Disney has been churning out, or even Pixar with the film juggling several story lines- Despereaux,Roscuro Hoffman , the maid, the Princess- all at the same time all seeming to get an equal amount of weight to their telling. It wonderful.Unfortunately the film has one flaw that keeps it from being perfect. This is a POTENTIAL SPOILER so you may not want to read this bit There is a moment or two after the meeting of Roscuro and the Princess when the climax of the film is set in motion when it felt like something was left out. How does all of the villainy transpire? Its not fully clear and on some level I couldn't completely go with it to the next level. Its like coming to a canyon and you have to bridge it, but you suddenly find yourself on the other side without knowing how you got there. its the sort of thing that made the almost 10 out of ten film closer to 8 out of 10. END OF SPOILER Yes I really liked it. Yes I think you should see it, especially if you like really good fairy tales or stories that are not simple or simplistic. Its a wonderful movie.
After waking up with my usual January the 1st mother of all hangovers i wondered how i would manage to grab some recovery time in the form of some extra shut eye later on in the day? Bingo! why not take the family to the cinema? I great place to catch forty winks , or so i thought. Little did i know i would find a kids film that was so good , sleep was the last thing on my mind.A long time ago, in the distant kingdom of Dor, A horrible accident broke the heart of the king, left a beautiful princess crestfallen, and filled the townspeople with despair. As the sun disappeared from the sky and <more>
the flowers were drained of color, the laughter slowly ceased in this once-magical land. It was into this darkened world that a tiny mouse named Despereaux Tilling was born, and while this virtuous little rodent may have been short in stature, his bravery was ultimately too big for such a small world to contain. An unlikely hero with over-sized ears and a discernible wheeze, Despereaux was taken with tales of chivalry, and longed to one day become a noble figure among his people. Sometimes in order to realize their true destiny, heroes must first experience great hardship, however, and when Despereaux fails to adhere to the rigid rules of his society, he is banished from DorI don't review Children's films very often . Maybe that's because they are on all the time in my house and i don't really take a great deal of notice of them.To be honest i didn't even know of The Tale of Despereaux until i checked the listings but I'm glad i did.This is a magical production that has a mesmerising story , some delightful characters and animation of the highest quality. It reminded me a little of some of the fairy tale books i used to read as a kid. The narration by Sigourney Weaver was perfect. It helped my children understand exactly what was going on when there was two or three sub plots going on.The Characters voices are performed by Dustin Hoffman , Emma Watson , William H Macey , Tracy Ullman , Kevin Kline and Matthew Broderick but to be honest i only recognised the voices of Hoffman and Watson during the film.It does make you wonder why studios pay massive wages to big film stars when a lot cheaper alternative could be used.If you stuck for something to do before the kids go back to school next week you wont go far wrong if you take them to see The Tale of Despereaux .Without a doubt this is the best film i have see this year......and its also the first!8 out of 10
Lovely, kind-hearted film that doesn't pander (by ldarroch)
I'd be hard pressed to name a kid's flick I've seen in the last four years that can't be summed up by "a quest to find his true self." For once, the hero knows who he is, and lives by this truth rather than learning to define himself along the journey. It was refreshing to see a slightly less-linear film aimed at the under-10 crowd. There were at least 3-4 narratives to follow mouse, rat, servant girl, and to a lesser extent, the royal family . The notion that one's actions and attitude can greatly affect those around you, in unexpected ways with surprising <more>
consequences, was a lovely lesson to learn, rather than the rote "value of friendship" moral. I don't quite get the Ratatouille comparisons, frankly. OK, the heroes are both rodents. And there is a chef. This film reminded me more of Big Fish, The Princess Bride, and Pushing Daisies with its small themes and seemingly meandering narrative, that all comes nicely at the end. And yes, the film was utterly beautiful.
It was actually very good, although very different from the book (by s_garoutte)
My son and I read this book last year and it along with Kate's other great work "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane" we enjoyed very much. It is rare to find witty educated authors who are able to identify with the 5-10yr old crowd. The movie however was a far cry from the book, nevertheless the family and I enjoyed it very much. I am personally tired of the movies that focus on the parents more and the kids less Bolt, The Incredibles etc.. . The movie is a great movie particularly if you want to have a great talk with the kids on the way home about honor and bravery. Was <more>
it the book? No and I prefer the book, but the movie is good entertainment in it's own right. Give it a chance, it will touch you.
