2009 marks the 10 year anniversary of The Iron Giant, one of my favorite movies of all time. Director Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille) has hinted that this critical darling and box office dud may have a short theatrical release to celebrate the occasion. I’ve never seen this movie in the theater, so if this re-release comes to fruition, I’ll be the first in line to purchase my ticket. For anyone who hasn’t seen this movie, you need to rent or buy the DVD immediately. It’s one of the most touching stories, animated or live action, ever put to film. If you don’t cry, you’re probably a robot. And not a sweet and sensitive robot like the Iron Giant himself, but a cruel and cold-hearted robot who kills puppies for its own amusement. Because for real, you’re going to cry like a tiny baby when you watch this. And then you’re going to be flabbergasted because Vin Diesel (who voices the Iron Giant) TOTALLY MADE YOU CRY.
