Ratatouille

edited July 2007 in Debate and/or Discourse
So, a new Pixar movie is out, Ratatouille. Directed by Brad Bird of the Incredibles. The trailer looks so-so, but the movie itself is immensely entertaining. The story is great, the characters are endearing and the animation is beautiful.

I have a pretty high opinion of Pixar right about now.

    I have a consistently high opinion of Brad Bird. Edna Mode was one of the funniest movie characters I've ever seen.

    She reminded me so very much of my Sophmore year design prof that it was scary. I loved having her for a teacher, though, so it wasn't in a bad way.

    One of the few people on RT who gave it a rotten review didn't like any of his other movies

    said they were emotionally dead

    The Incredibles and the Iron Giant

    The Iron fucking Giant

    It only increased my anticipation to see this movie.

    I want to see this desperately.

    However, I despise small children.

    The current plan is to buy it on DVD and/or find a theatre open past midnight.

    Iron Giant and old Peanuts movies (shut up, it's a childhood thing) are the only animated movies that can make me tear up.

    ...wow, I'm guessing he meant that he was emotionally dead. I really can't think of a Pixar movie that doesn't have universal appeal to kids and adults. I'm sure there's one or two of them out there, but I just can't come up with them. This looks like it's going to continue the track record.

    I've seen it twice now, and it is by far my favorite of Pixars, minus the Incredibles. Really, though, the only reason the Incredibles ranks so highly in my mind is because it had so much comic-book action in it.

    Ratatouille, though, man. So completely different from the posters and such.

    Man, the only Pixar movie I don't like watching is Toy Story 2. I loved the first one, but the second focused too much on the whole, "Woody's Round-Up" thing. It was a big plot point but after a while I was just like, "Common.." then I went ahead and took a sneak to watch Pokemon again. First one captivated me, though.

    Pixars other movies are just... so awesome. I really think if they were on their own, instead of coupled with Disney, they'd put just as great movies out and maybe some that delved into deeper topics. Seeing this today with some friends.

    The only Pixar movie that I don't really like was Monsters Inc. The reason I didn't like it? I wasn't four. That movie just really doesn't have much for older audience members, unlike the Toy Story movies or The Incredibles.

    I wish Disney still invested money in slick 2d films. I guess The Emperor's New Groove was the end of an era.

    And I got to see Destino for the first time on a cruise. They were auctioning pictures of Walt Disney and Salvador Dali hanging out as they worked on it.

    It was announced recently that there won't be any more of those straight-to-DVD sequels.

    Also, this movie was really great. It may be my favorite Pixar flick now.

    Just saw this. Pixar has got to give me whatever it is they have over there. They've got creativity beyond imagination. This is the fourth straight Pixar movie which has blown away my expectations (Finding Nemo, Incredibles, Cars, and now this). I really liked it. And on a technical note this was outstanding. Especially the photo realistic fur on the rats. Highly recommend it to anyone going to see it.

    So Ray Romano didn't fuck it up?

    I swear I always have a hard time bringing myself to see a Pixar movie because the subject matter never interests me (Toys, lost fish kid, nascar, suburbanites with superpowers, cooks), plus I know that they're marketed to kids, but I always end up enjoying them.

    It was Lou Romano, not Ray "I can make a wooly mammoth sound overly nasal" Romano. They did manage to sneak Brad Garrett in there, though, playing a very.... uncharacteristic voice.

    It was pretty damned good... I actually, literally choked up at the end when
    the critic takes his first bite and has the flashback, and later when he's ordering again.

    Just... wow.

    Let me make my self more clear, Incredibles is my one of my lest favorite pixar movies, it just seemed to generic, like it seemed to be a cg comic more than a movie, plus it just screamed fantastic 4 if you look at their powers.

    Cars was funny, thats all i got for that movie. plus i watched it with a girl i liked so my view of it was kinda tainted.

    I just want to point out that John Lasseter is my personal hero. I may have given up on ever animating, but I still love him to death. And him being in charge of Disney Animation (ALL of it) is possibly the best thing the company ever did.

    Now, Ratatouille.

    I think my favorite is still Finding Nemo, but this comes in a close 2nd or 3rd, in terms of Pixar films. I knew it would be great though because it has Patton Oswalt.

    Interruption here. If you don't know Patton aside from this movie, you need to go buy his comedy albums right fucking now. The man is hilarity incarnate.

    NOW!

    Where was I. Oh yes. I totally agree about the scene with the food critic. Absolutely brilliant.

    And I don't care if anyone laughs at me, but the opening trailer for Wall-E? I get all choked up when I watch it and I don't know why.

    During the scene where Remy gets separated from the pack, Vyolynce had this to say:

    "Pixar: Come and see our water!"

    I responded with:

    "Our water is so realistic, that we were asked to cartoon it up! Because it looked too real."

    Seriously, that is some of the most realistic water I have ever seen in a CGI movie. I will be snatching up the DVD in the near future.

    On the subject of death and daemons disappearing: arrows sure are effective in Lyra's universe. Seems like if you get shot once, you're dead - no lingering deaths with your daemon huddling pitifully in your arms, just *thunk* *argh* *whoosh*. A battlefield full of the dying would just be so much more depressing when you add in wailing gerbils and dogs.

    I saw a note somewhere from Pixar that the sewer scene was about 12 times as complicated as the scene inside the whale in Finding Nemo (which was the trickiest in that movie).

    Jeanine Garafalo was AMAZING in this. If I hadn't seen her name in the credits to confirm it, I wouldn't have believed it was her. She sounded completely different. Really, all the voice acting in this was top-notch, as usual for Pixar. (Emil is one of the animators btw)
