Iron Giant
1999
****
Director: Brad Bird
Cast: Eli Marienthal, Jennifer Aniston, Vin Diesel, Christopher McDonald

A charming old school 2D animation about a young boy who befriends a gigantic robot from outer space. The story is reminiscent of E.T., but this one is wonderfully set against the backdrop of the 1950s communist paranoia. Based on the novel The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.
