I hate cartoons. This needs an all caps sentence: I HATE CARTOONS. Bring on the hater comments. I do and I am not ashamed. I especially hate Disney cartoons of late. Everything made after "The Lion King"...grrr, gets on my last nerve. I cannot explain it. I just think it is dumb. Don't get me started on "Shrek". Everyone loved it. I didn't. I won't even waste the time to give the sequel a chance because that chance was the first and original and I hated it. "Finding Nemo"...hmm, I don't want to piss anyone off, so let's just say it lasted ten minutes.
When I was a child and all my other friends woke up early to catch weekend cartoons, I was watching "Annie" for the 100th time. I never watched cartoons.
I know they are funny and most entertain the adult who is watching along with their child. It's not that. Since the age of five, I just prefer real-live action entertainment.
At the Oscar party I attended, a couple really insisted that I rent "The Incredibles" when it comes on DVD. Huh? I gave them my argument and told them my story of animationism. They counteracted with the same views and thoughts of cartoons--they, too hated them. Yahoo--I was not alone. Then "The Incredibles" went and won an Oscar. They cheered and turned to me and said; "You must rent it. It is hilarious".
Okay, but didn't "Finding Nemo" win last year? They told me to put it all behind and just rent the darn thing.
You can only imagine that I am also dating a man with the same views but his is more: Why watch cartoons when we don't have kids? Exactly! We don't watch SpongeBob.
Last night was cold and I planned a grilled cheese and tomato soup dinner. Incredible went to Blockbuster. He called me; "Hey, there is one 'Incredibles' left...what do you think?" (there is some irony in here somewhere)
I gave in. Five minutes in, brain racking guessing Holly Hunter's voice, and I was in. HILARIOUS. That was the most genius cartoon I have seen to date. Thank goodness for no late fees, I plan on watching that puppy one more time.
