Pixar, Dreamworks, and others have given us many movies in CGI.

This trend will continue with films like:

The Incredibles
ROBOTS
Cars
Madagascar
The Polar Express

Other: 'The Triplets of Belleville'.

Granted, it wasn't all 3D, but it was much less garish than any of the other choices. Plus they used the same 2D/3D integration techniques as Futurama.

I voted for "Toy Story," because it's the only one out of those listed that I a) saw and b) liked.  Most CGI movies are crap.

Excusing Episode II, of course because it had a better plot than Episode I.

Robots? Haven't heard of that one...

I have to say Shrek at the moment, it was great.

Hmm I think will hold my opinion until I have seen Final Fantasy VII Advent children, visually it already looks amazing I just hope that the story is stronger that Squares first atempt.

Comes out early(ish) next year, Robbin Williams does a voice (but is too similar to Aladdin's genie). The backgrounds look partly inspired by Futurama. Looks pretty clool, a robot city...

I am going to go for Shrek because I really love that movie. I might go and see A Shark tale some time.

I vote Toy Story. I like CGI films, but this is the top on my list.

Robots looks kickass.

By CGI movie. Do you mean, its graphics, or its credit as a movie?

Or both?

I'd go with Final Fantasy. It just looked stunning... and the story, although most people did not relate, I found pretty original and yet true to the Final Fantasy spirit.

I'm gonna say Shark Tale. Cause unlike Finding Nemo, I loved it. Finding NEmo did have good animation but the plot was the stupidest piece of shit. I hate Finding Nemo. Little bastard...

The two Toy Storys would have to be my favorites.  But all the Pixar stuff is good on some level.

Shrek 1 is okay, but not deserving of a sequel.  The rest is forgettable at best.

I think that even having a sequel to Shrek was a huge mistake. I mean I really liked it but I don't have as much respect for it as I did for the first one. I hate that Hollywood has to kill a lot of really good things.

Didn't see the sequel and don't intend to.  Even if its any good, it only sets up for disapointment on Shrek 3 and 4 (which, yes, are both happening).  So I personally don't plan on seeing any of them.

OK Shrek is already dead which pisses me off. But 3 & 4 won't even be worth it!

I vote for Shrek, although I do find 'Les Triplettes de Belleville (The Triplets of Belleville) fairy amusing to watch.  My other half finds the animation ugly however.  laff My other half likes Shrek though  love

I can't choose my favourite one out of them. They're all good! I can't wait for The Incredibles. It looks really funny! And could someone give me more info on 'Robots'? Because Robin Williams is my favourite actor.

It's a tie for me between Shrek and the Toy Story series... although I still haven't seen Shrek 2 yet, and don't really plan to see it any time soon.

Gotta agree with you there, I know nothing about final fantasy at all, other than that movie is just amazing!
I like the look of 'sky captain' (yes I know its not entirely cg because it has live actors) the propeller-driven flying airfield with the union jack looks so good...

I was lucky enough to get tickets to a presentation by pixar having to do with The Incredibles. I have to say that it looks to be the best Pixar movie yet. Seriously, you can't go wrong with huge action scenes involving volcanoes and giant robots and lasers!

As for Final Fantasy, it looked great, but I didn't like the animation. None of the movements looked very human.

I'm leaning towards Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within too, but I don't really like it's story which was a bit bland and not as fantastic as the actual games. Like while the thematic thing about a global lifeforce is slightly similar, the visuals alone can't make up for that since they too weren't that great. They look good certainly, but are bland compared to the design shown in the games... Advent Children looks a lot more natural though, interesting given how I thought the company was shut down and sold...

I don't see the point of trying to make animation look like real life like in Final Fantasy. I mean you might as well just film it with real actors. The whole point of animation is to create a distorted version of reality.

My personal taste agrees, and also extends to apply this to video games...

Exactly. The main reason people play games is to be able to do things which they can't do in real life - so by trying to exactly duplicate real life, you're at cross purposes.

However, I think the reasons that producers are trying to duplicate real-life in animation are two-fold:

1. Actors - not only that actors die and thus cannot be replaced, but also that they can be expensive and hard-to-work with. CGI along FF:TSW lines means you can use lower-paid extras for motion capture, and utilise any voice you want. Sometimes I wonder that if George Lucas had had the technology, would Star Wars have been entirely CG?

2. Audience - No matter what happens, there is a sector of society that will persist with the view that animation is only for children, and is not a valid medium. By matching animation to real-life, they can either persuade or mislead these people into accepting the films.

A friend of mine said he saw The Incredibles and he loved it.  He said it was just like a regular superhero movie.
