[3] . The Secret of Kells (2009)

This was easily the hardest one of these to pick scenes to gif because every single frame of this movie is so beautiful. It’s filled with this specific type of imagery that.. I really don’t know how to describe. It’s very 2D, and they use it to amazing effect. Every single bit of this movie is wondrous, new, refreshing to look at that I’m always a bit disappointed every time I finish watching it. I always want more of this world, more of this imagery and animation. There’s literally nothing else like it, and not just in what there is to look at. The story, based on Irish folklore, is also extremely different, and you just get so absorbed in all of it. It’s all so unique, in fact, that from a distance the movie seems almost odd. However, it has the tiniest, most perfect amount of modernization to the characters and humor that just drives it home, making it impossible not to fall in love with. I’m never anything short of awestruck by it every single time I watch it.
