1. My boys and I saw the movie last night and absolutely loved it. In fact, my 12 yo son said it was his new favorite film ever, and as far as animated movies go I’m hard pressed to disagree.

    Why, on those unusual occasions when sibling relationships really are important in a story, are they almost always brother/brother, or sister/sister, and not sister/brother?

    This is one of the reasons Gravity Falls is so delightful. I’m only a couple of episodes in, but I can already tell that Mabel and Dipper’s relationship is the keystone of the series — and instead of constantly squabbling over their differences as so many fictional siblings do, they actually appreciate and enjoy each other. It’s refreshing.

    I wasn’t crazy about it. I found the motivation for the villain completely unbelievable… or rather, extremely inconsistent with his actions.

      I tend to agree about the villain. He acts like a 14-year-old would expect him to, not how an adult really would act. There were also a few logical inconsistencies I thought, but none of that stopped me from loving the creativity, characters, and animation in it. What a ride! And don’t forget to stay through the credits. 🙂
