All right, I know about The Snow Queen being back into production. And I am aware about the whole name change. Although I think Frozen is a cool title, but I get the idea. Then again, even though I am going to see Brave, I still think The Bear And The Bow is a cool title as well. I don't know why they changed it. OH well. You made your point about the whole Frozen name change. But there's a bigger problem now, I shouldn't call it a problem, but instead of it being done in 2D, it'll be a full CGI film. I don't have a problem with it, but I though the whole purpose was to save 2d/hand-drawn films from extinction. Well, hopefully, it won't be a bad film.

@Neil Dunsmore-The reason why I say it's an embarrassing title is because there is an age old rumour (which I personally don't believe is true) that Walt Disney had been "cryogenically frozen". It would make sense to me if some former employees of Walt wanted to make up some story about the death of their old boss to joke around with for some selfish, hate-filled reason, but a title like "Frozen" is going to bring up that topic an awful lot. And what's worse is that it's a title that'll go down in their animated canon, unless they do something about it AND QUICK!!!!!!!!!!!:(

@Daniel- I know, it saddens me how paranoid Disney's gotten. Still, at least Frozen sounds a tad more fitting than Tangled. Unlike Tangled, a title like Frozen can actually be taken seriously.

I would just like to have my say for upcoming films if no one minds. While I didn't see its sequel (and I should point out that the trailer for it is absolutely unbearable to watch) I find nothing wrong with "Hoodwinked" considering that Cory Edwards (director of the first and NOT the second!!) looks for only the best in family entertainment. In fact, The Jim Henson Company was so impressed that they've invented him over to help them out and now they've been trying hard to make a film version of "Fraggle Rock", but no news has come if the project is a go for them. "The Pirates" is on my list because Aardman is the Pixar of Great Britain. As for the real Pixar, I can't understand why they would go for a title like "Brave" whereas the original "Bear and the Bow" which says a lot more of what the picture's about. I don't know if I should see Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie" since the original 30-minute short film from 1984 seemed awfully cheesy and unconvincing to me. I mean how the hell would a kid know how to bring his dog back to life if he's only learning science through elementary school. "Wreck-it Ralph" ultimately makes it on my list, but I'm concerned at the direction Disney's taking after that. I hear "The Snow Queen" is being renamed "Frozen". How embarrassing is it to have that under Walt Disney's name? Think about it.

@Animat- Yeah, I think Dylan might be, like, 10 at the oldest because he really seems incapable of paying attention to others.

Good list with a lot of good choices. I understand your issues with the mocap films of the past year, so your choice in their regard makes sense. Now I have to update my watchlist.

It is embarrassing to admit that I've only see one movie of 2011 and that was "Cars 2". Thankfully I'm going to see "The Adventures of Tintin" tomorrow (or later today, seeing that it's past 12 o'clock in the morning now. The video was very enjoyable and it's always nice to hear other opinions. Hopefully this years animated movies are even more enjoyable. Personally, I can't wait to see "The Lorax".
P.S: Just so I'm not asked later, I will make this very clear: I'm ok with "Cars 2". Not as good as the first one, which I did enjoy, but this one was just....alright. It's one of those movies I wish I could like more, but also really aggravates me because it could had been better. Plus, when you have two 4 year old cousins, whose every other word is "MCQUEEN" and "MATER", how can it NOT be annoying? With that said, Goodnight and God bless.

Another great video you made. For the films I've seen in theaters, I've seen Gnomeo and Juliet, Rango, Rio, Kung Fu Panda 2, Cars 2, Winnie The Pooh, The Lion King, Puss In Boots, Pokemon The Movie: White: Victini and Zekrom, and Arthur Christmas. And today, I went to see the Adventures of Tintin.

I saw the majority of the movies mentioned here...my favorite was probably Winnie the Pooh, but that's mostly because I've been a big Winnie the Pooh nut since I was a small child. Excellent video, Mr. Coat!

I would count motion capture as animation. All of the clothes, backgrounds, and lighting is ALL done in animation. They had reference from human models, but most of the creativity that you see is on the part of the animators. Also, I didn't really like Rio that much. I have no problem with cliches as long as the movie is still interesting, but that wasn't the case with me for Rio. I can't wait to see Kung Fu Panda 2 and Puss in Boots on netflix. The trailermakers sometimes put the weirdest jokes in the trailers. Sometimes a Dreamworks movie will be very funny, like in the case of MegaMind, but then the trailer is just filled with awkwardness and stupidity and it is supposed to count as humor. I just don't get that.

HEY! You ripped me off! LOL just kidding :) I ripped you off :P Seriously thought, really interesting video there. I'm surprised that you actually loved Rio. Personally, I thought it was ok. It's more in the middle pile for me.

why didn't you talk abour mars needs moms and why do you guys hate mars needs moms and cars 2? Mr. Coat: I very clearly explained that I didn't discuss Mars Needs Moms and Tintin, because they're motion-capture. And I very clearly state in the video that I like Cars 2.

P.S. I'm really looking forward to "Brave" and "Ice Age: Continental Drift". If something has the Ice Age name on it, I gotta check it out. And don't be ashamed, Mr. Coat, I liked Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" too.

I'm glad I didn't see or rent Hoodwinked Too! I knew things were going wrong when Burger King toys for the movie came out a WHOLE YEAR before the movie itself did! I rented "Mars Needs Moms" once, and I'm just gonna say this... BIG MISTAKE!

"Gnomeo and Juliet": That was just OK. The animation is very detailed and the voice acting is good. The rest... meh.
"Rango": That was an amazing movie! Definately one of the best!
"Rio": That movie was a lot of fun, especially with great voice acting by Jesse Eisenberg and Jemaine Clement.
"Kung Fu Panda 2": A sequel worth watching again and again!
"Cars 2": I really like this sequel much better than the previous film. Glad to see you liked it too!
"Winnie the Pooh": I didn't see this in the movie theater, but now I wish I did.
"The Lion King 3D": I LOVE this movie, but I didn't see it in 3D. 3D re-releases don't count.
"Puss in Boots": I didn't care for much of the jokes, but the did enjoy the element of adventure and action sequences it had.
"Happy Feet Two": I didn't see this one either, and considering its negative reception, I doubt I'm going to soon.
"Arthur Christmas": I'm sad to say that I didn't see this movie in theatres either, but I'll be waiting for the DVD.

The only 2 animated films I saw this year were Rango and Tintin. Rango I didn't care much for but Tintin was awesome!
