Boy, what horrible news to hear first thing in the AM.
Listing all the great Chuck Jones cartoons would fill up the board.
"Will you SHUT UP? I haven't written a word in a year -nothing I haven't thrown out in years! Do you know what that's like? When it's just you and a blank sheet of paper? When you can't think of a SINGLE thing worth saying, a single character that people could believe in, a single story that hasn't been told a thousand times before!" -- Richard Modoc, "Calliope," Sandman 17, Neil Gaiman.
I never got a chance to make my feelings known (I had avoided this thread for fear of spoilers, and then the holiday break took away my high-speed internet access), so I'll just echo everyone's sentiments and say it was a damn damn fine movie.
