Recommended Posts


The winning film for this month's category of animated sci-fi, nominated by @Fido_le_muet, is Brad Bird's directorial debut, The Iron Giant, as chosen by @djw180.

Based on the children's book by poet laureate Ted Hughes, but transposing the action to America, this film poses the question what if a gun had a conscience?  The film, as expected for a Bird movie, has gorgeous animation and real heart and is truly a film for all the family.  It has a great cast, including Harry Connick. Jr, Jennifer Aniston and, as the giant, Vin Diesel.  I've not seen this since close to release, so am excited to revisit what I remember to be a fantastic film.
