It isn't just that I didn't enjoy "The Croods", it's that it literally had no plot aside from avoiding giant pits of lava. Plus Nick Cage doing voice acting. HDTGM hasn't ventured into animation yet, but this is where it should start.

I thought this looked pretty awful, but it looks like it was actually well-reviewed. 68% on RT.

I saw it and liked it. It has a plot; a family has to journey through a new and dangerous land (and also learn how to abandon their old ways and embrace new ideas) in search of a new home/safety. I didn't expect much but I thought it was pretty enjoyable, and there were a lot of things I was impressed by purely as an animation nerd. I can see people who don't particularly love animation not getting into it though.

The pits of lava represent the trenches of emotional despair in all of us, and the Grug character is a stand-in for the God-force itself. Do you not understand symbolism?

 

Personally, I haven't been so moved by a film since the 'Red Dawn' re-boot.
