I didn’t know much beside the premise and some of the clips released on the Pixar YouTube channel. Go watch it now. Thank you.

Oswald Reviews: The Spongebob Movie 2: Sponge Out of Water

I love Spongebob. I really do. I remember watching it when I was younger, and I still have so many cherished memories from this show. It is possibly the television show I quote the most. (ARE YOU FEELING IT NOW, MR. KRABS?)

I also watched the first Spongebob movie when it came out on DVD, and I loved it. When I first heard of rumors that a sequel was surfacing (no pun intended), I was hyped as heck. What would it be about? Would it continue from the first film? Will it finally explain where the freaking heck The Krusty Krab 2 is? When the first trailer was released, I was even more hyped. It’s exactly like I remember it! I was happy to see Stephen Hillenburg back in the writer’s chair. I had to see this.

I did end up seeing the film soon after it was released. What did I think of it? Well…let’s see.

The Minions…please stop…

I realize I have to admit it someday, so might as well get it over with.


Did he really just say that?

Yeah. You heard me correctly. I never thought the minions were funny. Well, I knew the little kids would appreciate the slapstick humor and the fact that we can’t understand them, but I never though that nearly EVERYONE IN THE FRIGGIN UNIVERSE would like them! Everyone I know keeps on telling me how amazingly funny they are and how they laugh every time say see them. I don’t understand the phenomenon.

Why do I dislike these little yellow pills so much?

“Saving Mr. Banks” My God…


THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER CREATED IN THE HISTORY OF HUMANITY!!!! Okay… now that my inner fan boy has been emptied out, let’s o.

The movie we’ve been waiting years for has finally been announced. I love it. I cried when I saw this. But casting Tom Hanks as Walt Disney was a bit weird…

This film is about Walt Disney trying to get the rights to the Mary Poppins film, only to learn the true story behind the book. And the Sherman Brothers are characters in this, so that’s pretty cool!

I can’t wait for this movie. What do you guys think about it? Talk about it below.

See you later, Animators!

John Model UPDATE! 6/15/2013


John Model UPDATE! 6/15/2013

I removed the jacket because it caused some problems in the rig. And the rig is also pretty messed up now. The clothes messed with the rig badly.

The mesh deformation modifier messed up his left leg when you move it. So I deleted the rig, got rid of the jacket, and now I am trying to figure out how to make sure the deformations work fine.

I don’t know, but I might need to ask some people to model and rig for me. My models aren’t very good. It looks good! But the topology is terrible. If you know anyone who can model in Blender, tell him or her I need him or her!

After my little predicament is solved, I will post my time lapse video of me building the rig.

Thanks! See you later, Animators!
