Re: Mask Of The Phantasm Appreciation Thread
i think alot of the reason why "fanboys" like the show alot is BECAUSE its a cartoon, and looks like the comic books, and its easier to make a animated movie/show look better then a movie sometimes, because in a movie you have to make the unreal real, and sometimes it doesnt quite work in reality. but in a cartoon world, it suddenly becomes more real. so IMO its easier to do a comic book movie in animated form because its easier to believe in then in a reality based movie with real actors. cartoons art very art deco, very specific, easier to manipulate. for me, burtons movies mixed the unreal with the real very very well. it took elements from the comics and mixed them with the real, and i think he made it work just as good as any of the BTAS episodes or movies.
