Oh, I think Cars is the worst by a country mile, but I still liked it a lot even if for no other reason than Paul Newman's story line.

It's probably what stopped me from falling asleep.

Merged a few of our Pixar threads (while also changing the response titles, so some of them make no sense).

I wasn't a big fan of Cars when I eventually saw the whole movie (I took Chloe again and she wanted to leave after a half-hour, and she never wants to watch it: "too loud"). It didn't have the emotional spark that other Pixar movies have had. There was no danger to any of the characters and I didn't find the relationships very meaningful. Newman was good, even LTCG did well. Just...no soul.

Ratatouille is great, one of my favorites. I don't really have a strong opinion on The Incredibles (I did like it, though), as it's the only other one I haven't seen numerous times. Chloe didn't really take to it.

The Writer of Doc Hollywood was my BA graduation speaker.  It was possibly the worst one ever.  the nadir was when he told the grads and their assembled families stories about prostitute job satisfaction.  On the other hand, he paid me to film the theatrical staging of Doc Hollywood, so it evens out in my book.

Thanks for splitting this off Allen.  You guys keep your OT discussion out of my thread.  ;) 

I love all Pixar movies, even Cars.  The story may not be the best but I think the animation and sound are incredible.   Incredibles is probably my favourite. 

Also, while I'm at it...if you haven't seen Iron Giant yet and think you're a Brad Bird fan, you suck.  :P

What about if you've seen Iron Giant, but think that the Incredibles is better?

I've got no problem with that.  Everyone just needs to see the Iron Giant is all. :)

I agree.  The animation and sound are unbelievable.  It's truly awe inspiring.  However, the reason I watch Pixar movies isn't so much for the technical aptitude that is on display.  It's amazing storytelling that they utilize.  Storytelling that was missing sorely from Cars. 

If I wanted to watch something that was technically amazing and bright and shiny yet emotionally stunted, I'd watch Bad Boy 2.

phew!

I just wanted the clarification.

I do like Iron Giant though.  It's just that I'm biased: Super Heroes trump Giant Metal Robots in my book (as they did in the Incredibles 8))

The Writer of Doc Hollywood was my BA graduation speaker.  It was possibly the worst one ever. 

Not even close.  Dan and Marilyn Quayle spoke at my graduation.  I think they talked about how times were changing.  I can only remember this exchange: 
"Dan, remember back when we were in college, and people surfed the ocean?"
"Yes, honey, and now they surf the internet"

Thought I would do my attempt at setting another thread off topic.   :P

I'd watch it.  Sounds like a documentary.  Perhaps a peek inside the genius of Bird?

For now I remain excited about Wall-E.  :)

Tell me there was a rim shot.  Please?
