You probably didn't realize how much CG animation there is in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind — and not just in the big obvious scenes where stuff is vanishing. This VFX reel for Michel Gondry's masterpiece is an eye-opener.
This short-short film is a neat piece of eye candy that integrates its well-worn computer-generated boxing robot into a live action world. It's also a handy lesson on the hazards of training robot boxers.
If this quick synopsis for the CG animated series Tunnel Riders doesn't sell you on the potential of this shows excellence, nothing will:

We thought we'd seen every weird and zany translation of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet — but we were wrong. We give you the first ever clips from Gnomeo and Juliet, the story of two star-crossed CG animated garden gnomes. Our only question now is: How do two ceramic gnomes off themselves?
Presumably in response to their Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song, the filmmakers from How To Train Your Dragon have cut together a gorgeous dragon-heavy video for Sigur Ros frontman Jónsi's movie track "Sticks and Stones." It's delightful.

Children of the world, look into the faces of the alien monsters that will abduct your mothers. The first image from the adaptation of Berkeley Breathed's Mars Needs Moms is out, and it is frightening.
The stand-out performance in Disney's new Rapunzel princess feature Tangled is Donna Murphy as the evil Mother Gothel, hands down. Watch her little character introduction here, plus get a first listen at the songs "Incantation" and "I See The Light."
The best part of the blue-headed supervillain movie Megamind has got to be Will Ferrell's decision to mispronounce every word in the English language. Watch as Megamind and Metro man give their best superhero banter performances to date!

We've seen Tangled, Disney's latest attempt to revive the great princess movies of its past. While we can't share everything that happens in this movie, suffice to say it transported us back to our childhoods via a pumpkin carriage.
Check out George Lucas' blue mug in the latest Clone Wars episode! Lucas is reprising his role as Baron Papanoida, a character he portrayed in Revenge of the Sith. But in Clone Wars he's much more... agile. See for yourself!
