New spanish films....

Seems like Filmax Animation is growing a lot in the last few years. They start with a decent film "El Cid, The Legend", and since then, they don't stop to produce and create one film after another.

Their new films, for the upcoming years, are very interesting products, and two of them in 2D!!!! (arrghh, I was praying for the return of the 2D animation, and seems like the guys of Filmax heard me....... ^_^ )

Mr.Collieu ----> Form the directors of Nocturna. The story seems very original, and the animation is pretty well done, plus the awesome design of the characters. I can't wait to see this movie.

And the Trailer

, will be the first of this films, in to be released, hopefully. I love the design of the characters, and the animation. So, I hope, that this film wiil be a hit in the theaters.


The last of the films, Filmax is producing, is Donkey Xote. They show us the typical story, told through the eyes of Rucio (Sancho's donkey). This time the film will be in 3D, and in the trailer, they show us a very beautiful backgrounds, hopefully, the story will be good as well.


P.D: Oh, I worked on the game of this last movie, so I hope that in no time I can be able to show you some of the animations I did. :)

Flushed Away.

At last this movie has been released in my country, here they call it "Ratonpolis"............I've never understood why in my country translate the titles of the movies in this weird way.............

Well, I left the theater with a big smile in my face, because this time the movie is good, very good. The principal mistake in this animated movies is the story. But this time we are talking about Aardman, and like in Wallace & Gromit, the story is simple, but is told in a marvelous way. I never thought, that the movie is boring or not interesting, nooooooooo, the movie is full of ingenious and ironic gags, and I was hooked for the full movie. The characters are very well definite, and I loved the character of Rita, an independent but very charming character, I simply loved it. The funniest character/s for me were without doubts, "Le Frog", and his gang of frogs, they were simply awesome characters with the most funny animation I see in the last year. :)

In the other hand, the slugs (the characters that Dreamworks sold us as the "funny" characters of the movie)..............well, for me they are funny, the first two times that they show us, but the other 100 times they are............I don't know...........typical??..........well, I guess it's me....but I don't like them.

The technical aspects.........blowed me away. The animation is awesome, full of marvelous poses for the characters, and they catch, very good, the "stop-motion" style for the body and the lipsync. Very good work :)

In a few words........The movie is a very good movie......for me is better than "Ice Age 2", "Over The Hedge" and "Open Season", and funnier, but not better, than "Cars" (sorry, I'm a "pixar-freak".... ^_^)

If you have the opportunity, don't lose it, and go to see it on theaters, I can swear you, that you are gonna have a very good time ;)

Flushed Away

P.D: Thanks a lot to Sonia & Manu, for their help with my english. I love you guys!! ;)
