The Cat and the Hat – Universal/Dreamworks/Imagine

Mike Myers’s oddball Cat in the Hat movie didn’t really nail the wonder and simplicity of a Dr. Seuss book. Surprisingly, the closest was during the studio logos, an animated sequence that mimicked the author/illustrator’s bubbly artistic style. One studio, two studio, red studio, blue studio — it had it all!

Tron Legacy – Disney

Tron Legacy was more about looking cool than putting any sort of coherent narrative up on screen and Disney embraced that fact. The world of Tron was like nothing we’d ever seen before — which meant the castle and Disney logo needed an overhaul. Welcome to the wonderful world of The Grid.

Osmosis Jones – Warner Bros.

Making a movie about germs is risky enough, but turning your own company’s placard into a microbe, flowing flagella and all, is down right impressive. And gross. Mostly gross.

The Last Airbender – Paramount

Little did Airbender fans realize how emotionally devastated they would be at the conclusion of M. Night Shyamalan’s disgraceful adaptation of the Nickelodeon animated series, especially after a kick-ass logo variant like the one that opens The Last Airbender. Swirling globules of water swoop in and freeze to form “Paramount” and the stars — the only cool moment from 90-minutes of torture. Can you tell I’m still bitter?

What’s your favorite variant logo?
