Elemental journeys alongside an unlikely pair, Ember and Wade, in a city where fire, water, land and air residents live together...

...having sex with their tails.

Move over, Zootopia porn art. Rule 54 isn't even going to wait for this movie to be released.

From the producer of The good dinosaur and cars2.  Looks like Pixar has their top tier folks on this one.

It's a completely different kind of movie altogether.

Neat.

I've only ever seen a handful of Pixar movies over the years, so I'm binging them all on Disney Plus ( in reverse order, from Turning Red to Toy Story. )

All I gotta say is that The Good Dinosaur is underrated as hell.  Maybe I was toasted, but that movie had me damn near weeping.

Finding Dory, too.  Sad but awesome.

I have a lot of faith in Pixar.  Soul and Turning Red were top-notch quality animated films.

That being said, I am a bit ambivalent about this project.  It looks like it could turn out like Onward, where they have a potentially fantastic concept but kind of blow it by using it to make mostly tired jokes about modern life with no real conceptual innovation.  I mean, Onward wasn't a bad film, but at best it was merely okay and didn't really measure up to the studio's great legacy.  And I think part of the problem was its missed opportunity to really run with its concept.  I hope this film doesn't turn out like that.

The new movie will be good no doubt.  Even the not-quite-up-to-snuff Pixar movies are good.  The thing is, we all got spoiled with Pixar's initial run of outstanding movies and so expectations have always been ridiculously high.  I've liked each of their latest offerings but IMHO their last truly A+ movie was Coco.

Looking back at their catalog, I'm actually surprised Pixar has not yet done a story with a thinly veiled metaphor for race yet.  Reading TFA, this one looks like it will be their offering in that category.  Not sure this is a particularly good metaphor though since outside of colloidal science, different phases of matter don't really mix all that well.  I guess I'll have to remain in suspense to see how they manage it.

Onward had the kind of concept that has to be treated very deftly, because it's so counterintuitive. We like stories where the ordinary world is elevated by a touch of magic, and if you reverse that by showing a magical world that's been tamped down and made ordinary, there has to be some clever satire or messaging behind it or it's just a one-note joke that wears thin almost immediately.

Unfortunately, Onward was pretty much just the latter. My son got bored quick and we switched to something else.

The Good Dinosaur is great indeed, but Cars 2 is an incoherent mess that deserves all the hate it gets and then some. 1, and even 3, were fine though.

I can only imagine that the sex between a water elemental and a fire elemental is... steamy.

That supposedly was a thinly veiled metaphor for homosexuality.

That's an interesting choice.

heymonkees: The Good Dinosaur is great indeed,


Surprised to see the love for this movie.  I still think it's properly rated as a bottom tier Pixar film.  I wouldn't call it bad, just not particularly good.  The story is pretty formulaic, and I'll never understand the bizarre choice of trying to mash up two completely different rendering styles.

The Good Dinosaur is not bad, it's boring.  It actually put me to sleep when i wasn't even tired.

People forgot about it so quickly, I'm not sure it matters what the message was.

Oh thank goodness that these water and fire creatures are conspicuously gender-coded. It would have been completely impossible to understand the plot otherwise.

If you're trying to get the outrage machine started early, you'll need better fuel than that to get it primed.

Instead of the gender coding, try raising a stink about the color coding. One character is blue and the other is red! Clearly this is dirty moderate propaganda trying to sell the lie that Democrats and Republicans can find common ground and co-exist!

I love all of Pixar's recent films -- even Onward. It's not quite Soul or Coco, but it's close.

Their only nadir was the Cars 2 / Brave era.  Rewatching Brave, it's just... ugh, aggravating.  They came up with this awesome-looking heroine and spent 1,000 hours rendering her hair, and then forgot to write a good story around her.  Merida and her mom feel like they come from a traditional Disney movie, with all the "a princess must follow tradition and act ladylike" shiat, but then they're stuck in a boneheaded Dreamworks movie full of drunken farting Scottish louts.  It really clangs badly.

She needed a better quest, like, I don't know, having to train a dragon or something.

So this new movie will have a plot of "what if elements had feelings?"

The good dinosaur made no freaking sense. The dinosaur couldn't eat any of the leaves? It was a "boy and his dog" story but with dinosaurs, but they didn't act like dinosaurs. It was like a Dreamworks movie.
