>>116411060>Combine the realistic color palette
Not a bad thing in itself. For instance, films like 9 actually use it to its benefit due to the setting's grim/eerie nature.>ugly designs
Sure thing. Don't like them for the same reason I didn't like Polar Express's, Dinosaur's, or Mars Meets Mom's designs either. I like Dragon's tho, ngl.>lack of any child characters to give it a bit of innocence
Good. Most child characters in animated films serve as either adult characters in kid's bodies, or bland ciphers that do nothing more than to advance the film's plot. Contrast that with someone like Adorabat, for instance, who's (justified)
radical hatred for monsters, bouts of blind idolatry endangering her friends'/community's safety, and unsettling 'hobbies' all make her more interesting, and surprisingly down-to-earth child character.>and the lack of a real heart
Subjective, as I feel the same towards most animated films, regardless of studio.
