theurge14: Cythraul: AverageAmericanGuy: ManateeGag: UP told a more compelling story in that opening sequence between Carl and Ellie than the entirety of the Twilight Series.Too bad there was an entire movie after that opening sequence. That kind of ruined the whole thing.You didn't like the rest of UP? Why? I thought it was good.Talking dogs flying fighter planes. Seriously, what the shiat? I thought I was watching a Dreamworks movie.
Cythraul: moothemagiccow: Cythraul: moothemagiccow: Cythraul: r1niceboy: I liked Brave, mind you I am Scottish, so got all the inside jokes.I kept reading how a lot of Scots couldn't watch the film because the accents made them cringe.The king was billy connolly, a scot, and merida was a scot, kelly mcdonald. Most of the main cast were Scottish. The remainders were British apart from John RatzenbergerYeah, but I heard somewhere that they were asked to alter their accents to fit more of what Americans think the Scottish accent should be. These are just forum rumors I'm repeating, by the way.So you're proudly repeating nonsense?Umm, no. I've heard of instances where American southern actors were asked to 'redneckify' their accents for a film because they didn't sound 'southern enough.'So, in this instance, it could be possible.
Expolaris: peterthx: Expolaris: Saw Wreck-It Ralph for my girlfriend's birthday - she loves Disney and i love Gaming so it was a great movie for both of us to discover great common ground with each other. Since then she has suggested i dress as Ralph for Halloween if only for being able to dress as Vanellope herself. I Recently saw Brave - liked the hell out of it, especially the Dad. Wished i had seen it in theaters with her i bet it would have been fun.But the best part of going to see a Pixar film in theaters...the shorts before the movie itself.[davelandweb.com image 850x510][www.awn.com image 620x260][www.filmequals.com image 550x291]They always leave me with a smile.Paperman is not Pixar (played before Wreck-It Ralph)Really? Do you know which studio put it together i really liked it and thought it stood on it's own. I still lump them in together with the other heart warming shorts.Almost forgot one of my favorites![0.tqn.com image 555x313]
Hebalo: moothemagiccow: Toy Story 3 had the same plot as Toy Story 2.Wow, I missed the Toy Store, evil toy owner, and airplane sequences in Toy Story 3. Not to mention the inner workings of the daycare in Toy Story 2.Do you actually pay attention to the films, or just spout nonsense after having them on in the background?WAIT! I'm overreacting, there were characters that were in both films. That, they had in common.
brandent: Goonie_Goo_Goo: Watched "Brave" the other day. It looked strangely familiar...[ecx.images-amazon.com image 300x300]I was telling the kids the other day "you know Pixar has never made a bad movie". Well that's still true but before the Disney corruption you could honestly say "every movie Pixar has ever made has been super awesome!"Brave wasn't really even good. Not bad but not good. Oh and a complete ripoff.
Ed Grubermann: factoryconnection: Tangled (not Pixar)I couldn't finish Tangled. First musical number and I ejected the DVD and sent it back to Netflix. Why does Disney keep doing that?
bifford: I just checked it: Wreck-It Ralph was a Disney film, not a Pixar one. This surprised me, as in terms of animation and writing quality, it easily looked like Pixar material.

wildcardjack: For the longest time Pixar's secret was in NOT doing things.Then they started making sequels and it all went to shiat.
NuttierThanEver: Also I see that the Pixar backlash has begun. God you all sound like a bunch of hipsters. "I haven't really been into Pixar since The Incredibles, no I'm watching animation by a small studio in Uzbekistan. You've probably never heard of it"
verbaltoxin: When I have kids I'll be subjected to that stuff all over, but for now, give me something with cussing, tits and blood in it.
cicdle: John Lasseter. That is the secret. Since he started running all Disney animation things have gotten good. Tangled, Wreck it Ralph, and Paper Man are good examples. The greatest thing Steve Jobs was fund John Lasseter.
th0th: Essentially the wreckage of Lucas' marriage gave us the studio we all love today. And three shiatty Star Wars prequels. There's your ironic schadenfreude.
mbrother: Pixar movies are "goddamned good" in the same sense that fast food, Christmas songs, and blue jeans are.Lowest common denominator, convenient, ubiquitous, and not terrible...but also far from "goddamn good."
soporific: I thought Brave was all right, but my wife absolutely loved it. I have to give them credit, it's the kind of film that I've never seen before, focusing so much on the Mother/Daughter bond. It was a bold move, and white it didn't resonate with me, props to them for taking a chance. And not just remaking Mulan.Of course, the animated film that got me this year was Wreck It Ralph. Saw that movie twice and both times it got me in a way that Pixar really hasn't the past few years. When a movie makes me laugh out loud and tear up in the same minute, it's a great film. (Even the short at the beginning, with the paper airplanes, was utterly fantastic and right up there with any Pixar short.) I really want to see Wreck It Ralph win best animated film next year at the Oscars.I am a bit nervous about the Monsters Inc. Prequel. It's going to be cute and funny, but can they really top the emotional climax of the first one? Will they be able to match the absolute emotional awesome that is the final moment when Sully peeks his head in the door? It still gets me every time.
moothemagiccow: th0th: Essentially the wreckage of Lucas' marriage gave us the studio we all love today. And three shiatty Star Wars prequels. There's your ironic schadenfreude.Lucas's divorce gave us Empire and Jedi, neither of which were written or directed by him.
snowshovel: Miss Stein: Shostie: DamnYankees: Cythraul: Brave has been released?! I was wondering what was taking them so long. Was it any good? I was hoping after what I heard about Cars 2, Brave would be awesome.Its not. Brave is the very apex of "eh, its ok".My wife really liked it. I haven't gotten around to seeing it.This may be one of those situations where, if you have a penis, you won't "get it," or something.I wasn't pleased with it either. It would have been better if the triplets had been taken away or put in grave danger, and Merida was the one who braved incredible odds and harrowing ordeals to bring them safe to the kingdom, instead of that touchy-feely mother/daughter crap they foisted on us.I wouldn't have minded Brave so much if the moral of the story was "Both mom and daughter need to compromise a little."Instead, we get an ending where mom let's the daughter be a tom-boy....without any scenes of the daughter also giving in a ruling like the princess her mom wants her to be.In essence, the moral of the story is "put your parents through hell, and they'll give you what you want eventually."
