If you haven’t seen Kung Fu Panda yet, do it. I went and saw it last night with my brother and a friend, and it absolutely cracked me up. Jack Black, as the voice of Po the Panda, is hilarious, and is well supported by the voices of Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu, and Jackie Chan. JACKIE CHAN DOES VOICE ACTING?!?!
Anyway, it’s a very funny movie, the animation is incredible, and it looks like the really did a lot of research on the actual Kung Fu scenes: the combat, while bizarre at times like Crouching Tiger, is mostly believable and very well animated.
Oh, and I totally want to crochet the noodle-guys hat.
