Best animation Movies Ever #21 The Fantastic Mr. Fox

Tej Kohli animation career blog brings another addition to his list of best animation movies ever. Taking the 21st spot is The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Read on to know what makes this movie special and deserving of this spot at Tej Kohli Blog.

Imagine what will you get when you combine the unique film making talents of writer-directors Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach - arguable their best work, though with a brief moments of very old-school, fun stop-motion animation.

The fantastic Mr. Fox, is based on novel by Roald Dahl, has George Clooney lending his voice to the titular character, a columnist who relapses to his sly, chicken coop robbing roots to feed his family when three big corporate chicken farmers threaten to tear down Fox and Friends' home. Despite being set isin a very basic environment, the content and interplay between the characters is very inspiring, witty and entertaining. The characters, made of art and craft supplies, feel more alive than most live-action characters. And Anderson and Baumbach, operating outside of their usual wheelhouse governed by all-too-smart, upper-class people with upper-class problems, seem to bring out the best in each other here, giving the film many opportunities to be one of the most underrated films of 2009.

Best animation Movies Ever #23 Fantasia

Fantasia is another fantastic animated movie on the 23rd spot at Tej Kohli's best animated movies ever list. Read on to know what makes this movie stand out amid the rest at Tej Kohli blog.

While many animation lovers gives this picture the top most spot on their list, we have not kept it on the top. Agreed that it is Walt Disney's ultimate creation, piece de resistance and great stuff, but let's face it, it can also be kind of boring at times, cheesy at others and dated in the worst way here or there. Thanks to the unicorns (and not to forget the baby unicorns), says Tej Kohli.

But, despite the flaws, there is still a lot of things to appreciate in the movie, even 70 years later since it was released. Some high points of the movie are sequences like the climactic 'night on bald mountain', featuring the awesome demon creature Chernabog. The movie is episodic, most non-narrative and is set out to various pieces of classical music. Even technically, the movie has got no parallels. Its animation is still rated among the best ever created.

Best animation Movies Ever #25 Batman: The Mask Of Phantasm

Tej Kohli animation career blog begins a new series of posts on the Top 25 animation movies ever made. In this post Tej Kohli has talked about a Batman movie, which changed the face of animation. The list will go on as more movies will be discussed in the upcoming posts, in an ascending order of popularity.

Long before the batman begins hit the theaters, this animated flick was the Dark Knight's best big screen movie. And some still argue that it is the best movie ever made.

Movie revolves around Bruce Wayne's past as Batman must stop a new rouge, Phantasm from killing Gotham's local mob population. The perpetrator and the crimes are related to Bruce's first and perhaps the last shot at true love, a relationship he was ready to leave the cowl for, it it meant a happy life.

Tragedy follows batman like a shadow, and when you add Mark Hamill's Joker into the story, the end product is one of the most dramatically satisfying films DC has ever made. Tej Kohli says the Phantasm is a wonderful nemesis, and when he removes the mask the reveal is both astonishing and justified. The climax of the film is set at an abandoned Gotham World Fair ground is outrightly epic and extremely violent, thanks for joker challenging batman to the fight for his life. Every character evil or good is connected by an event in their past. The movie completely exploits the outcomes of that event, especially the impact it has on Bruce.

With his films, Nolan nailed who the Dark Knight is. But Phantasm did it first.
