Don’t be silly, lots of people go outside these days, and then the cops shoot tear gas at them.
Wall-E has more classic moments in its 97 minutes than most film directors have in their whole careers.
Yeah! I love how at the end, the thing that they’ve spent the whole movie trying to avoid (Gusteau’s being shut down) has happened, and not only is everyone fine, but Remy can now work in a kitchen designed for him instead of having to puppet Linguini around.
Yeah, but it’s not that he says it, it’s that the film frames it as a legitimately sinister plan that has to be stopped. It’s treated the same way a more standard villain would say “I will rule the world!” He’s not saying it to make a philosophical point, he’s saying it so the viewer knows what bad thing will happen… Read more
Ratatioulle makes an interesting counterpoint to Bird’s previous Pixar movie: wherein Incredibles argues that “when everyone is super, no one will be” Ratatouille rebuts that “anyone can cook, but only the fearless can be great.” That’s a huge shift from a world where a few special people are apparently born with… Read more
Maybe it’s just because I’m a young lass who was born long after the interstate system was in place, but I don’t buy this film’s main conceit that the interstate robbed people of the ability to drive for pleasure? I’ve taken some amazing road trips in my time, and the fact that we had convenient highway exit signs… Read more
Just be glad they never produced John Lasster’s script for Cars 4: Mater Shits and Fucks. It was going to be in 3-D.
I would have loved Doc Hollywood but the entire time I was watching that movie, it just really pissed me off that every character was human. “This is bullshit, why aren’t they all boats,” I said. “Or, failing that, some other type of vehicle.”
It’s not a bad movie, but it’s a B- film from a studio that up to that point had only made A+ classics. So of course it stands out. Honestly I think its biggest problem is that there’s just too much of it. There’s like a half hour of pointless hijinks in Radiator Springs that could be cut right out of the film without… Read more
Stop watching TV and go outside, kid. In real life, no city is even close to being “destroyed.”
Bold of you to assume civilization will still be intact a week from now.
To me, the telling moment comes when Syndrome is explaining his evil plan, which is to kill every superhero, debut as a superhero himself to replace them, and then sell his technology, which effectively gives anyone who uses it superpowers, to the general public. “And when everyone is super...no one will be.” This… Read more
