With this, I've seen all three movies that are nominated for the Animated Feature Academy Award. I don't think Surf's Up should win, but I did enjoy it. I think it has a case for being the movie with the best animation, because honestly, the water effects are amazing. And even aside from that, the cinematography is great. You don't see a lot of animated movies with handheld cameras.
It was actually a pretty good surf movie. It didn't even need to be about cartoon penguins.
