The only one I've seen is the one with the girl searching for her lost cat.

Is it just me, or does that girl look an awful lot like Samajima Mamimi, from FLCL?

I love the look of "Detective Story," but the story itself is at once both predictable and nonsensical. "Second Renaissance" is excellent, and I know I know it's going to get a lot of votes, so I'm going to go with an underdog.

Now "Program," that I really like. Especially the mix of 3D elements and traditional 2D, like when all those identical doors are opening in a endless string. A neat, if trite, twist on the ending, too.

The one with the skinny anime chick with a big shosk of white hair, and another guy in a samurai mask that looked like a dragon's head, and they fought on horseback, and he tried to tempt her into giving up and then...

I really like kid story

I never used to like Matriculated, but I watched it the other day and really enjoyed it.

The Animatrix was awesome on the big screen, especially Second Renaissance.

Ok, i never really like Program and Matriculated, i did however like the "Kid's Story" and "A Detective Story". I'll vote for the Kid's one.

Detective Story and The Second Renaissance - Parts I and II were all interesting, along with most others, but i'm an action freak, so Final Flight of the Osiris gets my vote, love the scene at the start  :D

The Second Renaissance - Parts I and II I really loved it, most of the rest were cool too.

Final Flight because of the sexiness of it.
Then Second Renaissance although parts were quite disturbing (mommy!)

The one thing that really disturbed me in the second Renaissance was the part where they were at war. Y'know, the part where the machine got a hold of a mech, and the guy strapped in was torn out in a way which left his arms and legs in...

Although parts of the second Renaissence did disturb me it pretty obvious that they are menat to. It is also dead obvious it is meant ot be a reflection of our society with hommages to Tienimen (spellign?) square and Vietnam.
I really liked Detective Story hence why I voted for it, I thought Shuichiro Watabe did a great job with the syle and the pace of the piece. I thought World record was really interesting both in style and story, I also liked Beyond because it had so many subtleties to it. The animation in Beyond was also very cool but it was really the little things that hit me with this one.
Personally I thought the weakest story was FInal Flight of the Osiris. Sure it was pretty but it did not really delve into anything like many of the others did. But hey I guess that's just my opinon.

I totally agree with you on that one!
My favorite is either "Program" or "Detective Story"...hmm...I'll vote for "Detective Story" it had a great Film Noir touch...and I like noir!
