Go See Kung Fu Panda.

I cannot stress this enough: Go. See. Kung. Fu. Panda.

This is not a good animated movie.  It is a good movie, period.  Now, its a Dreamworks movie, but it bears no resemblance to any other Dreamworks cgi movie you've ever seen.  This is not Shrek in China, nor is it Sharktale on land.  It's not even regular Pixar good.  This is a different kind of movie altogether. 

Kung Fu Panda is The Incredibles good.

The voice acting was outstanding (I only wish the main bad guy's speaking voice was a little deeper, to match his animal voice and his build/demeanor).  Of course the animation was spot-on.  The creative use of slow motion was very cool.  The story, well, you'll know the story right away... this is not a mysterious plot.  It's not about whether things will happen or not... its about the way they happen, and why.  I was in a happier, giddier mood coming out of this movie than I was for Iron Man, ANY of the Star War prequels, Toy Story 1 or 2, Shrek 1 or 2.... certainly I enjoyed this more than any movie that's come out since I graduated from college (2004).  Some may have been better "artistically", but none more fun.  Especially not for someone thats ever bothered to read a real kungfu story. 

See this movie.  And bring sunglasses... you don't want to be blinded by the awesome.
