Rise of the Guardians. I got to see a sneak peek this morning, and this movie did not disappoint. The animation was absolutely beautiful, especially with Sandman and his powers. The attention to detail on the animation was great too (like Santa's belly actually shaking when he laughed and breathed). The story was really good, it had it's moments of laughter and fear, and was a pretty heartwarming movie overall. I wouldn't rank it completely up there with How to Train Your Dragon, but this was a fantastic film. I also was super skeptical about Russian Santa, but I really loved him. Even if it did throw me off with the irony of Santa listening to Stravinsky's Firebird Suite, and using Rimsky-Korsakov as an exclamation. I also loved that they mentioned Krampus (at least I think that's what they said). Sandman is who stole the show, though, which is awesome because he never spoke a word. Such beautiful animation on him.
