Dammit: I like real people on screen. If you get a good script, give me a live-action movie. Turning a well-written screenplay into an animated project just seems gimmicky to me (though I'm 85 percent sure I'm in the minority). Mary and Max seems like just that movie. It comes from writer/director Adam Elliot, who won an Oscar in 2004 for an animated short.

And it looks like a pretty decent film. It's about a lonely eight-year-old (Mary) who grabs the phone book and randomly selects a pen pal, a creepy but endearing old man. It's got a great voice cast, and unless you knew who the actors were, you'd never know they were voicing the movie (the old man is Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Mary is Toni Collette).

Eh. It's probably just me. I don't care for claymation. Sue me. Oh, and then jump up my ass.
