Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

At long last, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within was released this week. We didn’t make it to the first showing but the day after that. Ok, so the CG actors are not perfect, the way they move around isn’t always satisfactory and the storyline is a little twisted.
But the bottom line remains: this movie marks a giant step in the history of computer-based animation. The digital actors are convincing enough that you find your mind constantly swinging between almost believing you’re watching humans – and your instinct which tells you these are just digital fantasies. Highly recommended, if only to witness the progress made since Tron or Toy Story. More information here and here.
