I've all and liked them except for The Illusionist. Couldn't stomach that one at all.
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

Sir, do you have any Warrants?

I've seen Persepolis and Felidae, both are among my favorite animated movies. Haven't watched Watership Down (although I've read the novel) nor The Illusionist.

I've all and liked them except for The Illusionist. Couldn't stomach that one at all.

If you don't mind me asking, what didn't you like about it? I'm curious, because Sylvain Chomet's previous animated film The Triplets from Belleville is another favorite of mine and I've been meaning to check The Illusionist out.

I've seen Persepolis. Definitely an interesting experience. Don't know if I'll get it on DVD though.

While I want to see The Illusionist, I didn't really like Triplets. Not sure why, exactly.

Personally, I think it's Tati's form. I couldn't stand Playtime either. Something about his style of humor rubs me the wrong way.

I saw (and read) Watership Down in school. Still haven't seen the others.

I've seen Felidae and I loved it. But I haven't seen any of the other ones yet. I'll be checking out Persepolis one of these days, though.

I have a feeling you'd like Watership Down.

Hmm, I should have paid more attention back when Watership Down was around.

Old thread, but who cares, it's still relevant...

So yeah, i've seen them all, except the illusionist, but they're all great, especially felidae which I preferred in German, the voices fit everybody exceptionally well..!

This thread reminds me that I never did buy it, I'll have to get around doing that..!

But yeah, I recommend these movies, and even if one isn't your up of tea, don't dismiss the rest, they're in no way similar to each other, and one of them may tickle your fancy more than the other for that reason..!

I guess i should check out the Illusionist then..!
