On a much lighter note, I found Sponge Bob surprisingly good, given its bad taste crude animation style. Its humour and wit is top-class, but it's forgettable at the same time, especially since I find myself not remembering much, a day after watching it. It's unfortunately spoilt by mixing it with some live-action.

Ice Age 3 failed to live to the stellar expectations suggested by its immediate predecessor, although I liked the otherwise overdone one-eyed guide.

Chen Kaige's The Promise is nearly as annoyingly bad as his other overly-depressing piece of shit, The Emperor & the Assassin. Strange for a guy who excelled with Yellow Earth.
