Animated Films eligible for "Best Animated Feature" Oscar

This year, 18 films are eligible for the "Best Animated Feature" Oscar, and the vast majority of these films employ 3D as their primary animation technique. This means that there could potentially be five nominees this year rather than three. I have to say that I've only seen one of these films so far (Rango) but the list looks like a mix of good and bad (I don't see Mars needs Moms or Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked! coming home with any awards) and includes some interesting foreign films that I hadn't heard of. I've a linked a few trailers of some of those as well as some of the more critically acclaimed hollywood films.

Rango


The Adventures of Tintin


Puss in Boots


Winnie the Pooh


Alois Nebel


A Cat in Paris


Chico & Rita


Wrinkles


Has anyone else seen any of these films? I'd be interested in thoughts on possible nominees as well as personal recommendations. It's a shame that Pixar's film this year is fairly lackluster but it's good to see that other films might be getting a chance when they would have been otherwise overlooked.
