So anyone seen Robots yet? I made it to the theater today without much previous knowledge of the movie. All I knew was that Robin Williams was in it and had seen a few clips here and there.
I enjoyed the movie as did the sea of kids who were filling the theater. Robin Williams wasn't overbearing which was a relief and the other characters had their fun moments as well. The visuals were amazing and weren't done to a point to be distracting.
Even though I enjoyed it I don't think I'll be buying it on DVD when it comes out. The movie was good but it wasn't "repeat watching" good. Unlike Toy Story or A Bug's Life the movie experience wasn't that engrossing. I guess the reason is that even though the other characters were good they weren't memorable. The secondary characters in Toy Story were great but those in Robots just blended into the scenery for a good part of the movie. There are 6-7 or so robots in the group and other than the Robin Williams and the 1 female robot the rest are forgettable. Too bad.
The biggest highlight for me was the ROTS trailer which I hadn't seen yet. I was shocked at the excitment of the kids watching the movie. One young kid starting jumping up and down and pointing when Darth Vader made a brief appearance. I'm really getting excited about that movie.
