That's 4 cents already, big spender.

I was just clarifying my position on Shrek. I didn't really find Monsters, Inc. to be all that exciting either. It was okay, but not stunning like some other Pixar films. There's something to be said for satire, though I think 'Enchanted' did a better job with fairy tale satire than Shrek did.

Was that the one with the dinosaur complaining about its little arms? If so the commercials were plenty for me. Kind of like Monk.

Yup that's the one... It's with movies like that, you begin to wonder if they shoved every funny moment of the film into the commercials... and that's it..

Its a tough decision for me. I liked WALL-E a lot but I don't really like to put movies I've recently seen at the top because a lot of times I like it better only because its something new. I really enjoyed both Cars and Rataoullie so I would say its between those two.

Yeah. I'd really like to credit "The Hand of Lasseter" here, but again, I'm not really sure what all he changed.

I really miss how Pixar used to avoid putting footage in their teasers.

I hope they go back to that at some point.

I'm in a minority here, but for me, Cars wasn't great. It was too long and pushed the ideas that Pixar used too far. I mean, in the other movies sure things were anthropomorphic, but at least the humans were there. I mean with Cars, where are the Humans? Did the apocalypse wipe them out and left the cars behind, I mean really! That, and Owen Wilson sucks in anything that isn't a Wes Anderson movie.

Oh yeah, and if you look on Youtube, they have a rifftrax of the Beverly Hills Chihuahua trailer that's far funnier than the movie ever will be.

Cars > anything Dreamworks, but yeah I agree it wasn't their best movie.

I think if you compare Lasseter's movies to Bird's movies to Stanton's movies you can see that there's a difference in style.

Lasseter definitely loves the "hidden world of _______"/anthropomorphic type stuff (toys, cars, etc).

Bird tends to go a bit dark and turn things on their head (superheros that can't be super, rats that want to cook).

Stanton really likes to apply the monomyth in uncoventional ways (clown fish as hero, garbage-man robot as hero. I suspect that he split the difference with Lasseter on Bug's Life).

So far we only have the one movie from Pete Docter so too soon to tell what his gig is.

My point is that it's not as though there is a "typical Pixar movie". We wouldn't lump Michael Mann together with Francis Ford Coppola just because they both made crime movies with Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro would we?

Ya, and Mann did direct Last Of The Mohicans, which is far more different then Heat. And not as good But it comes down to taste I guess. Cars just wasn't my cup of tea. It's strange with me and movies actually, I have my top five movies and my movie that's better than anything else but not rewatchable, but after that it's jumbled up. Ah well.

I agree. Like I said, Cars wasn't my favorite either. I think I was just trying to point out that your source of contention might not be "what Pixar pushed too far" so much as it might be "what Lasseter pushes too often".

FWIW, I think Lasseter is an animator first and a storyteller second. Nothing wrong with that, however I think that the distinction does come through when you compare his films to those of the other directors in the Pixar stable.

I don't know... can they top Wall-E?

And they showed us that they can actually make good sequels, Toy Story 2 was actually good...

But how will they fare with Toy Story 3... and CARS 2? Why Cars? Why not Finding Nemo? I'd much rather see a second finding Nemo (or Wall-E ) rather than a second Cars....

TS2 was good? You think so? I couldn't stand it, although I consider the first one to be the best Pixar work.

Finding Nemo seemed to have had it's whole story told. Cars, on the other hand, psi-story may have something else to explore.

Pixar Policy: No sequels unless the story is just as good, if not better, than the original.

This past Christmas, my family had a mini Pixar-athon. We watched some of the Pixar movies (starting with the Toy Stories, since I got them on DVD as a present). We didn't watch all of them, like The Incredibles or A Bug's Life. We mainly just wanted to watch the two we hadn't seen, Cars and Ratatouille. ...And I thought that they were so bad, that I only watched about half of each one before I gave up. I really didn't like them. Especially Cars, that one was terrible. Ratatouille was ok when you compare it to Cars.

And I can't wait for TS3, it should be epic.


P.S. Oh, wait, I take that back- I technically did watch all of Ratatouille, just not in one sitting. My mom had to re-watch the second half of it, since she fell asleep the first time.

Well, you know how sequels can be really, *really* bad?

Pixar showed they could make a tolerable sequel....

They didn't ruin it... like you can see with some sequels, it's like "Why were they made??" *cough* Bambi 2 *cough cough* *cough* Mulan 2 *cough cough*

I mean, when it comes to making sequels to something good, that wasn't meant to HAVE a sequel, it usually turns out bad.... But TS2, just was not a terrible sequel....

And I want to know what happened to the fishies in the bags at the end of Finding Nemo, that makes for a good sequel material to me...

I went with The Incredibles. There is so much for kids, kids at heart, and grownups with no heart to love in that movie. I especially loved how they worked in the theme of celebrating mediocrity over excellence.

My feelings exactly. I think they could come up with something good for Cars, but The Incredibles has so much potential to be mined.

FWIW, Lasseter says that the difference between Cars and Cars 2 will be comparable to the difference between Toy Story and Toy Story 2. With that said, I suppose that comment is only meaningful if you share the opinion that the second Toy Story was better than the first

I think I'm gonna have to with the original Toy Story, the one that started it all. Can't wait to see Wall-E sometime soon!

In my opinion the worst Pixar movie was Rataoullie.

Toy Story 2 is the only good sequel ever to come out of Disney.

@ZTalker: Nice

Barely torelable, which on Toy Story's case was a sacrilege.

Can't say, as I haven't - fortunately - seen either, but if we talk The Lion King 2, I can understand your point.

No, but it was bad enough for me to dislike it.

I don't know how many times I need to point out that it was primarily geared toward U.S. audiences. If you didn't like the first one 1) we have a pretty good reason as to why and 2) don't spend your money on the sequel. Seems simple, eh?

P.S. Just got back from #8. The niece loved it.

Now all you need to do is dress up like Wall-E and hang around in the lobby for a bit before seeing the movie...
I told myself this morning that my next viewing would be on DVD. I hope I can hold out that long.

I *know* I can't, I'm gonna go see it again next week and again the week after, but the withdrawls are getting to me...

Isn't there a bootleg out online yet? (Kidding of course, that would be... *ahem* illegal)


This siggy is about truth, beauty, freedom, and above all things love.

My all-time favourite would be WALL-E for three reasons. One, WALL-E's beeping sounds are funny, two, EVE is the deadliest character Pixar has ever made and three, I just love their romance.
My close second would be A Bug's Life. Seriously, am I the only one around here who loves that movie? Flik and Atta are the coolest ants ever, but nobody remembers that! Totally underrated... So sad...
Third choice: the Toy Story movies, particularly the 2nd one.
Monsters Inc. was also a brilliant movie, and Monsters University is just as awesome.
The film I like the least is Finding Nemo. What's with everybody saying that it's the best Pixar film ever? Sure, it had some great effects and graphics-but nothing more. This movie didn't have a message to give to the audience either, while WALL-E, A Bug's Life, Monsters University, Ratatouille and even Cars do.

Agreed. Finding Nemo is overrated. But I'm glad that Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres have reprised their roles for the upcoming sequel Finding Dory.

As for my favorite: a Bug's Life. I just loved the graphics and the characters.
