    Somebody said “butt?” How dare they!

    Out on the earliest date, sweet. This was an especially entertaining episode.

  • Ryan Prieto

    Fantastic episode great movie. Very important episode for me. Love the book. Really liked the movie.
    Also a huge congrats to Brandon for his 500 articles. The guy is a boon to the Rotoscopers community, bringing quality and professionalism in written form. It was awesome to get to hear his voicemail.

    I think I might like it better if I had read the book.I actually don’t mind the ending but I’m fascinated by themes of work.I thought the dystopian view of a kind of reverse Neverland was cool.But for whatever reason I wasn’t emotionally invested in this one.

    I agree that the Little Girl story was not as good as the Little Prince parts, which had some of the best stop-motion I’ve ever seen, but to me even the Little Girl parts were of Disney / Pixar quality. I thought it added some complexity to have a story within a story, and I like how the movie makes a case for the importance of literature in our lives.

  • David Kang

    It wasn’t boring, but I do understand that some people might think it’s boring. I just watched with high expectations and I was pumped because I’m a fan of the book. I really liked it. However the third act made as mentioined in the podcast with Mr. Prince was unnecessary.
