I would suggest you watch Renaissance or Waltz with Bashir then. The former is a cyberpunk film noir, while the latter is a semi-documentary about Israeli soldiers in the Lebanon War. There's also Persepolis, which is about an Irani girl escaping the revolution and coming to terms with Western society.

They're all Western in origin, so long as you still consider France as Western. >_>

The humour in it isn't wrong, but like I said before, they've done it to death by know. Whatever they use rats, fish or sad robots.
I fail to see your point to be honest. They include rats, fish, etc... Because the audience Pixar aims at is kids, teenagers, and nostalgic adults. Plus, I enjoy the humor they add in it; makes their films more entertaining and fun.

Funny, I actually think Dragon Age: Origins is one of BioWare's most funniest and humorous games ever. *Cough* Alister *cough*

if I save the cash of the ticket I can actually buy a nice cult classic on DVD.

My point being is that I know Pixar can do this genre well, as you discribe it.
I'dd love to see them try and do something like... well, like that Final Fantasy film, everyone find that one a stinker.

It's not that Pixar should go and dump their style, but it would be nice to see what they can come up with for, say an action movie or I dunno, Sci Fi horror, what ever.

Bad example perhaps, though there are some grim choices to be made in the game. And "evil" guys do get their heads lumped off and what not.

In most Pixar movies the evil anti heroe actually kills himself by accident and whatnot...

ah sorry, mate. I just love saying B, when everybody else goes yapping about choice A being so darn good.

Oh well... I'll follow Sabers advice, the frenchies have a nack at making fun animation films, who are differant then most mainstream affairs.

I really wanted to see Shutter Island, but missed it by a day. Went out of theatres here. Ended up going for Daybreakers, which is a pretty good popcorn movie, though you won't watch it more than twice, max.
Hey did anyone else see it? Didn't Ethan Hawke look slightly like Christian Bale in that movie?

As for most anticipated, I'm near dying here to see Inception. Nolan's directing and the trailer looks very very promising. Also I've been waiting very long for Iron Man 2. Whatever else comes out I'll watch as per my time permits

I really want to see IRONMAN 2, but Clash of the Titans was O.K., it was kinda your normal drama/action/romance movie. I gave it a 8/10

My, my Astor you are indeed the bearer of bad news. A remake of True Grit, did these Hollywood fools learn nothing from the failed attempt to remake the Alamo? This reminds me of a quote from The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance “When the legend becomes fact, print the legend". John Wayne will never be considered a great actor to me, but he was a legend and there is no replacing a legend. I like Barry Pepper, but he isn’t likely to adequately fill Robert Duvall’s boots. However Matt Damon should be able to handle the role of La Boeuf, one of the few things I disliked about True Grit was Glen Campbell’s role. Like you I will avoid this movie at least until it comes to premium television.

What’s next will Hollywood remake Casablanca, The Godfather, It’s a Wonderful Life or Gunga Din? Without Humphrey Bogart, Marlon Brando, Jimmy Stewart or Cary Grant they would be wasting their time and money. The only good news I see is at least they are not remaking The Searchers or The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

I can't say there are many movies that I really want to see in 2010. Toy Story 3 is probably the closest, and that's only to complete some childhood fantasy of mine.

OH WAIT, I lied.

Being a fan of Robert Rodriguez, I can't wait to see Machete. I know that it won't be an emotional, social, or artistic masterpiece that will change the world, nor will everyone like it, but I'm still ecstatic nonetheless.

That, and Sin City 2 and 3.
