  2. I love movies like these -- driven by character and plot, not just CGI. Altho I like certain CGI movies too, don't get me wrong. It's just that they get a little tiresome in a steady diet.

  9. Musicals never do well. I don't know why they never quite figure that out! As for The Field of Lost Shoes, it doesn't look quite as girly as I would have thought a film about lost shoes would be!
