Writer Douglas L. McCall (Hampden, Maine) has been interested in animation since childhood.From Library Journal:
Successes like Antz (1998), Toy Story (1995), and the series of Disney blockbusters released in the wake of The Little Mermaid (1989) signal a resurgence in film animation, the topic of these two books. McCall's, the work of a young enthusiast, is segmented into three parts. Part 1 covers 180 animated features, providing credits, notes, synopses, and "critical" ratings. Part 2, which is unfortunately devoid of specifics, lists live-action films that contain animated sequences. Part 3 encapsulates over 1500 animated shorts, supplying credits and notes. The result is serviceable but marred by the problematic Part 2, which neglects both the stop-motion effects of Ray Harryhausen (Clash of the Titans) and the computer animation integral to films like The Last Starfighter (1984) and Jurassic Park (1992). A critic for Hour, Montreal's English-language weekly, Borowiec surveys films under 39 minutes in length. Not unlike McCall, he eschews sustained commentary in favor of single-sentence remarks and "critical" stars. The main section of this work lists over 1800 short films, released between 1906 and 1997, in alphabetical order. Borowiec does a fine job of including films from around the world, and the director and chronological indexes are useful. Unfortunately, his entries are so brief as to be of little use. Libraries of all types should think twice before purchasing either title.?Neal Baker, Earlham Coll., Richmond, IN
