The delightful 20th Century Fox 3D fun of Horton Hears a Who, brings to life the wacky worlds from the imagination of Dr Seuss. The creatures are so lovingly reproduced it feels remarkable that we havent seen the likes before on such a scale.
I really enjoyed the film, from a CG standpoint, the realisation of the idea and the details of the dialogue and comedy mixed with some deeper thinking. I actually laughed at plenty of bits, the physical humour is super fun.

There is a great feature article on CGSociety by Bruce Shutan detailing the design and CG work used to create the film and its unique look based on the Dr Seussian vision.The Maya-centric production didnt break any CG ground really, but is still an excellent example of the art.
