Kung Fu Panda - it's a good flick

Alright, now onto the bit I was writing when I decided to go ahead and go after Forbes. Jack Black's Kung Fu Panda. New movie, in theaters, opened today... and it was worth the mid-day price point. Surprisingly, nobody else stayed through the credits, though there is a closing scene that is, well, quite worth the stay.

I don't want to spoil too much about the movie, but the trailer is similar to the recent Indiana Jones. Some of the ending sequences were used in the trailer, and many of the plot points are lit up far in advance. That being said, like most of Dreamworks Animation movies, it was funny, and unlike other movies, quite memorable afterwards. Maybe that's just because Angelina as a Tiger and Lucy Liu as a Snake just seemed to be the right casting for them.
