That was a Uni-kitty, not a pony.
Whatever, it's sissy and it's pink, and I agree with Batman.

The Uni-Kitty's voiced by Alison Brie. This worries me, because historical precedent suggests that I will fall in love with it.

I love that the spaceman's helmet is cracked.

Is that a reference to something?

The old spaceman helmets more cylindrical in shape were known for cracking along the neck strap if kids were too rough.  Eventually they made them more spherical and sturdier.

I largely was, but was expecting for the number to be closer to 84.  That said, expect it to drop a bit soon.  Not because it isn't great, but because it is a comedy and with comedy being subjective, it is hard to please everyone.

EDIT: Plus, there are only 19 reviews so far.  Just wait.

I don't trust other people's opinions, particularly when it comes to movies. That being said, I suppose it could be good.

(I'm not that cynical I swear, I'm just sayin'.)

Is the one negative from New York Post's Kyle Smith?

Edited: Yes, it is.  I'd take that with a grain of salt.  His reputation is comparable to Armond White.

Nice.  Pretty impressive.  It could be the first stop motion movie to win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature since 2005 (especially since Pixar won't be releasing a movie this year after "the Good Dinosaur" fell through).

Stop Motion? This is CGI, I thought.

I believe it's fully CGI, but filmed to look like stop motion.

Hasn't White been banned from Rotten Tomatoes ratings?

Some CGI is used (especially on the faces), but the majority is stop motion from some Robot Chicken guys.

I just got back from seeing it, and I can't believe this was mostly stop motion.  I don't think stop motion was used for any part of this except maybe the credits.

Yep, I was wrong.  Sorry.  Stop motion was originally intended by was dropped.  Pretty impressive looking though.
