Editorial Reviews

Review

'!this compendium couldn't be better timed. Flaunting both excellent taste and in-depth knowledge, Osmond 's book certainly won't disappoint aficionados...' - Total Film '...The effect is that we consider not only the individual title in question, but also the history of animated cinema as a whole; for Osmond it is all interconnected, and rightly so.' - The Digital Fix '!a learned attempt at an overview of full-length cinematic animation from the sublime to the whimsical!' - The Evening Standard 'At 246 pages this is a weighty-yet-compact hardback, which also includes a useful bibliography to aid further reading. Readers will inevitably come away from the book with a new appreciation for the world of animation!' - Jonathan Melville, Edinburgh Evening News '!this is an essential guide to 100 landmark movies that captures all the form's scope and vision.' Boyd Tonkin, i - The Newspaper 'Anyone who believes that animation is a niche or dying art would find their ideas challenged by this collection, which shows the depth and reach of the animation medium. Although each movie's entry is brief, it is to the point, and Osmond yet again shows his skill in teasing out the pertinent points and bringing fresh ideas to the table.' - NEO Magazine '...a thoughtful romp through every animation discipline...If you want animation-buff status, seeing this ton of 'toons armed with Osmond's insights is a pretty good place to start.' - Empire Magazine 'Now I have the complete bible of animated feature films, a beautifully put together book written by the clearly incredibly knowledgeable and passionate Andrew Osmond...100 Animated Feature Films is an incredibly worthy addition to any bookshelf (or coffee table) whether or not you consider yourself a film geek/buff/nerd. There is something for everyone to take from each brief yet entertaining excerpt and if today's staff room experience is anything to go by, a joint flick through this book's pages with some friends and/or co-workers will prompt some delightful trips down memory lane as well as many a 'oh, have you seen this film where!.? It's bloody great!' quips sure to keep you in bottles of wine and comfy nights on the sofa for months to come.' - Filmwerk 'Osmond gifts the field with an informed, well reasoned, well written critical approach.' - www.aintitcool.com

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Michael Samerdyke on July 11, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Written in a clear and accessible style, "100 Animated Feature Films" looks at the high points of this genre. Disney and Japanese anime get the lion's share of attention, but all kinds of animated films (cartoon, puppetry, CGI) from filmmaking traditions as varied as France, Czechoslovakia, Britain, and China are examined.

Ormond doesn't have an axe to grind. He makes it clear that this isn't a "100 greatest" book, because he makes telling criticisms of certain films. Still, he leaves you in no doubt as to why a particular film is important in the development of animation.

I didn't agree with all of his choices, but I was very impressed with what he wrote. He made me want to look at some films again and search out and view others I hadn't been aware of. This is a very worthwhile book.
