So... I don't know how many folks here are excited about Disney's new movie, Bolt, but I am.  It opens this week, and a good friend of mine is one of the stars - his name's Mark Walton, and he plays the hamster, Rhino.  I'm very excited for him - it's like his big break in voice acting.  His usual job is as a storyboard guy (I can never remember his actual title).  OK - I'll admit it, I'm jealous, too.  What cartoon watcher hasn't thought that being in voice-over work would be cool?  But still - more excited for a friend than jealous.

Anyway, all of the reviews so far are good.  Most include some comment that boils down to "it's not as good as the great stuff Pixar has put out, but it's wroth watching - way better than the other movies Disney's been making for a long time."  Most also include a comment about my friend and that he does a great job, which is very cool.

What I really came to say was: if you're thinking about going to see it, please do.  The more buzz there is around my friend's character, the more likely he is to get a spinoff or more roles or something.

Will do!

That's pretty cool that you know that guy. Was planning on seeing this anyway. Looks better than most of what Disney's been putting out lately.

If it's not Pixar I don't ca-

It opens this week, and a good friend of mine is one of the stars - his name's Mark Walton, and he plays the hamster, Rhino.

... now I just feel like a jerk. :(

This looks more tolerable than other non-Pixar CGI movies, but I probably wouldn't be seeing it anyway, not in theaters at least. It's great to see your friend get a break like this though.

I was considering seeing it anyway because it looked decent.

Went and saw it today in 3D, and thought it was really good.  It was tough to not see my friend every time Rhino opened his mouth, but I'm really not saying it was good just because he was in it.  The current average on rottentomatoes is still up at 84%, which is pretty respectable, and FlixPulse (where regular people write one-sentence reviews) has 95% good reviews for it.

I am happy to say that they didn't put the best bits into the trailer, or at least not all of them.  The 3D stuff was cool, not over the top, and it added to the movie in a lot of little ways.  I'll be going to see it next week with my friend and his family, but we're going to the 2D version.  I'm interested to see what kind of difference it makes.
