Thread: Pixar movies

  1. #81

    Default Re: General Pixar Thread

    Possibly because 'A Bugs Life' is surprisingly a Pixar film. And people are ranking Pixar films.

    I'll certainly be buying it on Blu-Ray when its out in a week or two and seeing how it goes. I do remember it being somewhat good when I saw it last....about 10+ years ago.

    It had a sufficient plot, a few good characters, good animation and mediocre music. It's not a particularly amazing Pixar movie, but overall a good film. Its ending was too cliché, but that is pretty much all there is against it.

    Well, obviously the Incredibles family represents the batter and Syndrome represents the opposing team.

    Mr. Incredible represents the strength needed to hit the ball as hard as you can. Dash represents the speed needed to run to each base. Elastigirl represents the flexibility needed to change directions at each base. And Violet represents the "shield" and "invisibility" you need to not get tagged out by the opposing team (Syndrome).

    .........seriously, wtf?

    There was a hell of a lot of talent working on that short.

    Spielberg produced it, Tim Burton did the character designs, Bird wrote, directed, and voiced the dog. The Dad is Stan Freberg, The Mom is Annie Potts, and, of course, Little Billy is played by Scott Menville. Looking at the list of animators, there's at least four of them with feature film director credits and a couple more with television credits.

    Let me put it this way.

    When I first saw Iron Giant, my impression of Bird was he was an Akira Toriyama.

    Now I know him to be an Eiichiro Oda.

    Of sorts.

    I like what he does, but the truth that he didn't invent the conventions he so proudly marched in his movies has hampered my enjoyment of them, and lowered my opinion of the people who take a blind-eye to it.

    It probably wouldn't be the case if I knew Iron Giant was a homage in the first place, but if that was the case I don't think it would have been as spell-binding to me when I first saw it.

    Kind of appropriate coincidence a baseball analogy was worked into this, 'cause we could always bring up the steroids scandals...

    Sorry if the man didn't INVENT giant monsters or superheroes and that somehow takes away from it for you.

    That's not a coincidence at all! YOU brought up the baseball analogy! And you still didn't explain it!

    Man, you're expecting logic out of somebody who just said that Oda is less inventive than Akira Toriyama because he... hell, I don't know. Hasn't created a completely new genre to replace the one Toriyama didn't create either? Didn't base his most successful series on Journey Into the West?

    At this point, it's best to think of Terek's posts as an exercise in Dadaism and move on.

    What the fuck does "inventing" even mean in storytelling?

    Did the producers of King Kong invent giant monsters?
    Did J.R.R. Tolkien invent fantasy?
    Did Stephen King invent horror?
    Did Stan Lee invent superheroes?
    Did Shakespeare invent comedy and tragedy?

    Re-watching Toy Story. It's still amazing but looks kinda out-dated graphically compared to the new one, which is even more noticeable on the Blu-Ray. Still so many scenes I love and can appreciate a lot more on here tho.

    The Reg on the number plate on Andy Mom's car is A113. Which is the same code as the one for Auto in Wall-E XD

    I love all of the little easter eggs

    Yeah, same here. I think Toy Story 3 would have to be my favourite, whereas Cars and A Bug's Life were their weakest efforts, (not bad by any means, just not as great as their other stuff) but all the other ones in between? No idea. They were all great.

    My favorites are The Incredibles and Ratatouille, but really, just about every Pixar movie is great. My least-favorites are probably Cars and A Bug's Life, but they're both very, very good movies. And Toy Story is probably the most consistent trilogy, ever (paraphrasing an above post). Now that Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and Spider-Man were ruined by their most recent films, the only other film trilogy that comes close is Back to the Future.

    Yeah. But some of the animated scenes are just more impressive than say in Toy Story 2. I love the bits like the Toys in Sids Room, The last 10 mins and the Woody vs Buzz Fight cus they just look amazing with the movements. Rewatching Toy Story 2 atm (3 just plopped through the door so that's next.) and while it is graphically better the scenes just don't feel as imprrssive and zany

    I think I'm late to this thread, but my list anyway:

    1. Toy Story 3
    2. Ratatouille - such a beautiful movie.
    3. Toy Story 1 & Finding Nemo (tie)
    4. Monsters Inc.
    5. Toy Story 2
    6. Bug's Life
    7. Up - some parts of the plot really threw me off.
    8. Cars
    9. The Incredibles

    I never got to watch Wall-E. The Incredibles never really sank in for me, for some reason.

    That actually makes it into all the Pixar films, and ton of Disney ones too. Its the classroom number used by character animation students at the California Institute.

    The Pizza Planet truck also makes it into every film.

    Doesn't the star ball make it into some of them too? I remember it in a couple.
