The Pixar Thread

posted by ryannumber1gamer on - last edited - Viewed by 645 users

Well with Monster's University (The prequel to one of my favorite Pixar movies) coming up, i thought it would be cool to have a thread to discuss Pixar's movies may it be the extremely good ones like Toy Story,The Incredibles and Monster's Inc or the not as good ones like Cars 2. In my opinion Pixar has made some of the best animated movies. So anyway some of the things people can talk about are the Pixar movies, games, references, and anything that is Pixar :)

Also has anyone noticed that in Cars 2 during the credits when it shows Paris you can see Gusteau's restaurant from Ratatouille. Also strangely enough i don't think the sign of the restaurant shows Gusteau as a car. I think it shows him in his normal self and not as a car :/.

  • I've said it many times, but Brave had a very specific intended audience: young women. If you are not a young woman, it will be incredibly difficult to see why the film was absolutely fantastic. Because, what I thought was the best aspect of the film was how well they portrayed a mother-daughter relationship.

    I mean, the way the two interacted/reacted was so real that it dredged up memories of similar fights with my own mother... I rarely get emotional with movies (the main other ones would be Land Before Time and the first eight minutes of Up), but this movie just really struck a chord. It's hard to have that sort of response if you haven't lived it. Yeah, the plot wasn't exactly the best and it wasn't incredibly funny... but it was real. And that's the reason I think it won.

    Several. Several of my friends with daughters completely went to love land for Brave.

  • It's entirely possible that I liked Brave as much as I did is because I grew up with two sisters and my mother while my Dad was rarely home, so I sort of absorbed that sort of thing as something that happens.

    Brave is actually the Pixar movie I most consistently enjoy throughout. Wall-E and Up have parts that I absolutely LOVE far, far more than I like Brave, but Brave didn't have those things which dragged the other two down.

    I loved Brave because of several reasons. First of all, and not as important, so let's get it out of the way, this movie looked AMAZING. I loved how it looked. The scenery was amazing, the characters looked fantastic, and Pixar really nailed hair in this one. Secondly, I loved the music, both orchestra and vocal. Thirdly, I loved the characters. Finally, a Disney princess who isn't obsessed with getting the handsome prince. I loved the way the characters played off each other and just how amazingly goofy and serious they could be, and the superb voice acting really helped sell that.

  • So what is everyone's thoughts on Monsters University? My thoughts, A return to the old Pixar. Brave was a step in the right direction but Monsters University was an return to the great Pixar movies in my opinion but still not as good as some other Pixar movies.

  • It was a crappy cash-in based on a castrated version of decades-old college and team event competition movie tropes that have since been run into the ground. Felt like a way overly long episode of a shitty Saturday Morning cartoon series, not like a proper film.

  • Monsters U was awful. It gets two thumbs down from me. Pixar obviously made this for the sake of profit. This could have been a good prequel, but they forgot that Mike and Sully went to school together in the 4th freaking grade. If I want a good college movie I'd watch Animal house over this.

    Doesn't Pixar even realize that people WANT AN INCREDIBLES SEQUEL over stuff that nobody asked for? I dont remember seeing people asking for a sequel for Cars or even finding freaking nemo people.

  • I want a sequel for The Incredibles already :P

  • Samuel L Jackson himself even wants an incredibles sequel to happen. :D

  • I actually quite like Monsters U. Which was surprising as I wasn't the greatest fan of the source material.
