    Wow, that was a quick ten years.
    I’ll be the first (?) to state the obvious: great film, by a great director. I wish I could go.

    This is a seriously good deal. I can’t believe it’s been ten years, either. The film is still so fresh and brilliant.

    No matter how many times I watch the film (and it’s been many)…I always tear up at the end.

    Greatest animated film of the last 50 years, imo.

    What a wonderfull movie, aaahh…

    Great to see the films designer, Alan Bodner, will be on hand. He did a terrific job on the overall look of the film.

    Can we burn the WB marketing department in effigy? Might make for some closure, finally.

    Iron Giant is one of the best animated films ever made. Period.
