TODAY’S ANIMATED FEATURES

It’s a big day in Los Angeles, as two oddball 2-D animated features open in local area theatres.HOME ON THE RANGE is Disney’s final film in a series of traditional hand drawn features dating back to SNOW WHITE in 1937. Even if they revive the animation studio someday in the future, this film will be noted as the last of the original line. I liked it, but the reviews have been luke warm. Roger Ebert was not impressed.tamalaTAMALA 2010 opens at the Nuart Theatre in West L.A. – it’s a bizarro Japanese anime, sort of a “Hello Kitty” from Hell. Vitagraph Films (American Cinematheque) is putting this cool looking picture in art theatres across the U.S.
