A villain wants to be a hero and sets out to fulfill his dream, but his quest brings havoc to the whole arcade where he lives. [imdb]
Nominated for 1 Oscar:
Best Animated Feature
This film was by far one of the most pleasant surprises of 2012. I expected something quite commercial (by that I mean more superficial in approach to the story), but I was so-so wrong. It's one of the most heart-warming, emotional, overall fun films of 2012. That this lost the Oscar to that terrible Brave (worst of the nominees) still feels ridiculous.
My rating for the film: 8.5/10. A nomination for Original Screenplay would've also been a fair choice.
