5 Underrated and Overrated Animated Cartoons

Underrated (Hardly mentioned)

  1. Emperor’s New Groove – It’s funny, it’s nice but not many has heard of it
  2. The Rescuers – Animation is superb, so is the story yet not many knows this
  3. Wreck-It-Ralph – Heartwarming and something different
  4. Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron – Inspirational; four-legged creatures aren’t easy to animate but this looks beautifully done
  5. Balto – Strong animation, motivational story.

Overrated (Seen too much hype and fan stuffs on it)

  1. Frozen – Sure, the animation is beautiful but the story isn’t worth the hype (or this is probably due to the singing). The story felt similar to Brave.
  2. Rise Of The Guardians – It felt childish, definitely not recommended for adults. Animation and graphics are great. Typically, all other guardians look like weaklings as opposed to Jack.
  3. Brave – all over the place and predictable story, cliche main character
  4. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs – Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it. I just don’t think it is worth that much attention.
  5. Kungfu Panda – Insulting stereotype with an unappealing main character and predictable storyline.

Wacom Intuos 5 Review

Wacom Intuos 5

Wacom Intuos 5

I received my early birthday present today. I had been using Wacom Bamboo for the past five years until it has been giving me problems. I wondered what was the difference between that and this new drawing tablet. I could immediately tell the difference when I started using it, here is a list:

  1. Writing on Bamboo is like writing on plastic whereas Intuos 5 has a more paper-like feel.
  2. I have more control over the strokes of the brush.
  3. There are plenty of refills for the pen nib and different nibs for different kinds of drawing.
  4. It has a wireless option which might come in handy in the future (of course, it needs battery).
  5. It has a touch option available.
  6. The medium size of Intuos 5 is much larger than the medium size of Bamboo. Slightly longer than an A4 but just right for travels. I only wished that the drawing interface covers most of the tablet instead of having so much extra space around the drawing interface.
  7. The grip of the pen feels steadier and it has much more pressure levels.

Let’s hope it lasts as long as or perhaps longer than Bamboo.
