Default Toys In The Attic

I knew of this a while back but it's out now on BD. Anyone seen it? I'm thinking of blind buying.

I haven't seen it, but it sounds like a cheesy Toy Story rip-off to me.

I haven't seen this yet either but I'm sure I will eventually. I've been aware of it for a while and it's on my list of films to check out.

I see how the plots are similiar, but this film was created in stop-motion and not CGI, so maybe that would be enough to differentiate it?

I haven't seen it yet, but the trailer looks promising. It's mostly stop-motion animation with a little live action as well.


DeepDiscount has the lowest price online for pre-order at $14.15 (+$1.99 shipping, or free shipping over $25).

According to Hannover, street date has been postponed by one week to Feb. 12 due to production delays.

Default crazy prices again

I got an alert at $16.69, while re-perusing the review, it dropped to 16.18, then while reviewing the reviews at Amazon, it dropped to 15.69 and I hit one click buy and got the confirmation. It's now back to 16.18.

For second I thought this was a thread on the Aerosmith classic album.

FWIW - It's $10.93 at ImportCDs. Even if you don't defray the handling costs with additional purchase, it would be $13.92 after s&h.

This looks so creepy, yet whimsical at the same time.

I would jump on it for that price, but the lack of the original audio makes me think twice.... We'll see.

I usually check a few other sources BB, Walmart, Target, Frys, Walmart.
Now I'll be checking importcds also - thanks!
BTW for some reason Amazon did not add tax this time - and I'm a Prime member, so I don't feel too bad.
cheers

I see this is down to $9.95 on Amazon now. Anybody seen this? Worth it? Or not really?

Frankly I found it way overrated. The story is run-of-the-mill and cheesy and it's way to pretentious in an artsy sort of way. I also may be spoiled by the smooth animation of ParaNorman and Frankenweenie and such, but the stop-motion animation is so jerky it almost gave me a headache. The combination with hand-drawn 2D and real footage didn't work for me either. Felt like a cheap kids program.
