Wow, it's been a while. Sorry, I've been neglecting my blog in favor of posting on Facebook and Instagram (jeffvictorart). But here I am, back with a new series illustrating my top 30 movie characters of all time. Here we go!
#30: The Iron Giant
I first saw this movie in the theater as the second part of a double bill with Wild Wild West. Suffering through that Will Smith debacle was worth it however, because the Iron Giant turned out to be an animated masterpiece. I knew Brad Bird from his work on Family Dog, but I wasn't prepared for how moved I would be by the end of his debut feature. The animation was irresistible, and the Giant was utterly charming. I became an instant fan of his warmness and sensitivity, and that's why he ranks high on my list of best movie characters.
