I'm glad to see, sighthound and sminobe, that I'm not the only CGI nitpicker. It really bugs me that in the, what, 12 years since "Jurassic Park", computer animators are still moving their people and animals the way they think they SHOULD move rather than the way they actually DO move. With some notable exceptions, you hardly ever see movement on a character which makes you suspend disbelief. What bothers me is that Hollywood assumes that we don't notice it. Directors like Lucas or Cameron or Jackson think that digital technology allows them to do anything they want, but it doesn't.
Ever see one of those animated films where they filmed a real person and then painted over them? Now there you're getting true movement.

I wonder if there are any Crimbo films with creme eggs in them?

You're right, you can't beat the good old-fashioned cartoon, the traditional animation!
