REVIEW: Paperman 3D


November 2, 2012

7 minutes



Even the simplest of stories can have huge impacts on audiences. That was the case when the latest Disney short 'Paperman' was shown in front of my early screening of 'Wreck-It Ralph.' It basically tells the simple story of how a man is trying to get and win the affections of a woman whom he met at a train station. It would be easy to go further into detail, but that would spoil the true magic of this 7 minute treat. This short is able to tell a sweet and funny story without the use of any flashy colors or dialogue from anybody, just sounds from wind and cars and such. Plus, the idea to combine hand drawn animation and CGI animation was a fantastic idea since the short looks incredible. Overall, 'Paperman' is a nice treat to get when you go to see 'Wreck-It Ralph.' It's not as enchanting as some of Pixar's animated shorts, but this is still well deserving of some wreck-ognition among them. (that was a 'Wreck-It Ralph' pun if nobody got the joke)

  1. How do you manage to find tickets for screenings? and if you like shorts you should check out I go there a lot and they have good ones.


Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
