The Iron Giant ★★★★★

Possibly seen as uncool by the mainstream, seeing as it isn't the hyper-rendered computer generated imagery that we all come to expect when we hear the word "animation" now (you've got a lot to answer for Pixar), this is as far from uncool as you can get. A modern-day fairy-tale, told with warmth and wit, set during the Cold War and going deeper than many films, let alone animated films, manage to venture.
