  • Rise of the Guardians

    2012. USA. Directed by Peter Ramsey. In contrast with the small town settings and relatively intimate psychodramas of its animated competitors, ParaNorman and Frankenweenie, DreamWorks studios offers a high-concept, action-oriented alternative for the holidays. A mash-up of narrative elements, characters, and spectacle borrowed from the likes of Peter Pan, The Avengers, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Avatar, Rise of the Guardians pits Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman, and new initiate Jack Frost against the Boogeyman, who threatens to rob children of their will to believe. The product of a decidedly more corporate imagination, this is nonetheless mega-pixel, 3-D animation in its full glory.
