If it doesn't have Ickis, Oblina, Krumm and The Gromble, I'm skipping it.

akula: I've still yet to not enjoy a Pixar movie. Sure, Cars wasn't awesome, but it was watchable. Cars 2 was pandering, but the in jokes for car guys were hilarious.


I couldn't finish Cars 2 or Ratatouille.

Tommy Moo: I love that CGI movies are now called "Old School." Kind of like how the classic rock station in my city plays Stone Temple Pilots and Pearl Jam. Has anyone released a hand-drawn animated film in the last ten years? The only one I can think of is The Frog Prince. There's something charming about hand drawn animation.


Ponyo.

Trailer looks OK but having Kickstart My Heart on it seems inappropriate

thecpt: Decillion: I'm going to say it. Cars was a pleasant and enjoyable movie. C+

I didn't think it was bad either, but the fark consensus was that Cars 2 was awful.

Anyways, WHAR INCREDIBLES 2 WHAR


Either that or buy back the Fantastic Four rights and have Brad Bird direct it.

Monsters Inc is my favorite Pixar movie. I liked the trailer to the prequel. It looks like it'll entertain me.

As far as other Pixar movies, the only one that I thought was only meh was Brave. (I didn't see Cars or Cars 2 thought.)

Telling Karl the stories of how their adventure made the kids grow up to be good people.

Hmm. What would Incredibles 2 be about? The "nobody's super if everybody's super" thing is done, the supers are no longer in the closet ...hat's left, besides pitting them against various super-villians?

I think an Incredibles 2 would probably be "just another superhero film," but in 100% CG.

/also, ratatouille is the only Pixar film I didn't like (that I've seen)
//haven't seen the most recent ones

Not off the table for Brad Bird (director of the original), though he'd only do it if they could get a really good story first and foremost.

HMS_Blinkin: It's way easier, cheaper, and less labor-intensive than traditional cartoons.


I understand that in terms of real cel-animation vs, computer, but South Park has managed to make a CG engine make a product that looks like construction paper, can Disney really not make a CG program that spoofs the 2D, non-shaded, textureless cartoon graphics of the classic look? I can't imagine not rendering 3D graphics is harder to design than full 3D models of everything.

Cars was a C+ at best, IMO. So I skipped Cars 2. Brave was another C effort. Everything else they've done has been awesome. Thing is though, they've been getting their butts kicked by other studios.

What's with this fancy computer generated crap?

They do, but this is about Pixar and their upcoming release. Pixar has only done CGI since it started with Toy Story back in the 90's (and don't do 'normal' cartoons). Did you miss Arrietty or Summer Wars? You should check them out.


I did miss Summer Wars! thanks!

madgonad: marcre3363: Awesome, it releases a week after my son's 3rd birthday.

I am planning to take him to Disneyland for the first time for his birthday. This will be a fun follow-up the next week.

Three is too early. He won't remember it and will be too small for many attractions. I would wait until kindergarten for Disney.


Three isn't too early. Even if your child doesn't remember the trip, the memories are for the parents as well. Plus, you take pictures that document the trip, and when they're old enough, they will appreciate those memories as well.

Digitalstrange: B.L.Z. Bub: First time I saw the original was in a doctor's waiting room. (They put up movies to keep the kids distracted.) A family member was going through one of those medical scares that turns out to not be so scary but initially can freak you out. Long story short, the movie had me welling up by the end. I wonder if it would have the same effect if I watched it again without having to worry about whether someone close to me was dying.

I'm not a "Cry at movies" kind of guy but the ending "Kitty" line has me fighting them back every damn time. May have something to do with me being a single dad, I don't know

Welcome. There was also 'Children who chase lost voices', but I didn't recommend that since I haven't seen it yet.

/also 'King of Thorn' not recommended since one character can't stop saying fark every 5 seconds
//and 'Oblivion Island' had some real creepy CGI work

You have to balance intellectually valuable content(plot, character development, etc) within the equation.

Not many stories are driving enough to get people to stare at the more plain art of traditional animation.  That is a chore for the production side of the movie, as well as for the ADHD addled masses.

They throw millions in production value at the visual effects and starring voice actors(easiest stimulation of the senses, and they stop there because it can create a similar euphoria as mental stimulation), and pennies at the scripts.  No creativity or intellect needed to make, just technical skill.  Meets the criteria of the lowest common denominator and makes more sales because of it.

gingerjet: ActionJoe: I love your movies pixar, I really do. But please start going back to new stories. I know everyone loves what you have already done (except Cars) but just move on and keep the creative ideas flowing. I'll still be optimistic about this movie but I was not really interested in seeing another Monsters Inc movie. I'm also not thrilled about a Finding Nemo 2.

Ah what?  PIXAR kicks out a sequel and you suddenly forget about Brave, UP!, WALL*E, Ratatouille, etc.  And The Good Monster is due next year.  And many people considered Toy Story 3 the best PIXAR movie released (I don't).

/and a shiat load of people loved Cars - with tie-ins, dvd sales, etc - it has made more coin for Pixar than any other movie


Problem is they only do one film a year.  So if that film's a sequel that's all we get out of them.  I'd much rather see new stuff than sequels, but I wish they'd do two films a year if one was a sequel.  I suppose the quality would likely suffer, so I'm just going to say I wish they'd do less sequels.  And for God's sake no more farking Cars.

I never liked Ratatoullie.  For some reason with all of their cartoonish styles, I couldn't get past a rat controlling the motor functions of a dorky guy by pulling his hair.  That and Oswalt's voice is nails on chalkboard to me.


Really. It had anthropomorphic rats, but your suspension of disbelief ended there?

Seems to me you have the tired, resentful heroes who decide to let people help themselves for awhile.  Although if they bring it back holy CRAP is the baby going to be overpowered.

LazerFish: I wish pixar would re-render their movies every few years to make them look better. The original monsters inc is starting too look a little dated now.


it's a bit more complicated than that.

Besides, I still think they look better than most of the other studios current 3d stuff.

I gotta agree on this.  I brought my 3 and 8 year olds.  Mom had to stay on the sidelines holding the 3 year old while me and the 8 year old had the time of our lives.  3 is too young.  Oh, and five years later the 3 year old insists we never went so there's that. :)

Supposedly he wanted Fantasia to have sequels, or revised re-releases with segments swapped out each time. Unless that was just what Roy Disney said to get Fantasia 2000 made.

Pixar is not afraid of throwing some heart-wrenching subject material into their cartoons. Toy Story 2's 'When Somebody Loved Me' was a real tear jerker, and the end of Toy Story 3 'I have the Moon' raised more than a little dust.

"The Frog Prince"? Did you mean Disney's The Princess and the Frog? I know of no recent animated movie named "The Frog Prince," hand-drawn or otherwise.

The Princess and the Frog wasn't hand-drawn. Just because it's 2D doesn't mean it's hand-drawn. Most pro 2D animation these days is done by software such as Toon Boom Harmony, and TP&tF used Toon Boom Harmony a lot. Much of the 2D animation you see these days uses that and/or similar software.

Rise of the Guardians was the best animated feature of the ones I saw last year. I don't care what the Golden Globes or Motion Picture Academy think.

Wreck-It Ralph was also quite good, and yes, better than Brave (which, don't get me wrong, was pretty darn good). I have yet to see any of the three Halloween blockbuster animated movies from last year.

I LOVED Wreck it Ralph and think it's one of the best recent cartoons but the voice work was so perfect that it kept pulling me out of the movie imagining the actors playing the parts rather than just enjoying the show.

Again. THIS.

I was five and I remember going that time. 42 years later. I made up for it by working there when I got older.

There are too many strollers and now too many kids who should be walking but are in strollers and too many adult scooters.

Wear hard toe shoes, not sandals unless you want tread marks on them.
