RATATOUILLE (2007) - Went to see this Disney Pixar film last night. It's a quality production that gives you an interesting feel on the subjects of cooking and Paris, France. While watching it I fell a sleep for 5 minutes and just couldn't get into the film. I must admit I was tired. The audience loved it. Both children and adults were laughing their heads off. I thought I was on another planet as I wasn't being hit the same way. It was an ok film typical of Pixar animation.

 Thumbup (7 out of 10 Stars) Pixar has decent films for the family and all in all we had a very good night out with this film in the background. gave it 95% on the tomato meter. Take the family out.

Took my daughter to this one today.  We both absolutely loved it.  The animation here is Pixar's best to date.  The hairs on the rats, and the lighting in the film really caught my eye.  It was absolutely beautiful to watch.

I rather liked the way the film starts out as a story about the rat, but ends up being a story completely about Linguini and his life.  Also, Patton Oswald does a great voice job as the main rat.  I'll surely pick this one up on DVD when it is released.

I really enjoyed the Pixar short before the film about the alien in training trying his hardest to abduct a man.   Absolutely hilarious.  Also, the teaser for Pixar's "Wall-E" got me all excited.  Pixar and a robot adventure flick!?!? I'm soooo there.

A bald man named Savalas visited me last night in a dream.  I think it was a Telly vision.

The pacing is a little off for a little bit of the movie (mainly the 1st 3rd) , but overall I thought it was great.

I haven't seen the movie, but I see the behind the scenes every day  Lookingup. It get's annoying but anyway, it showed scenes from the movie and when the fat orange rat ate that thingy and he didn't know what it was and then the main character (the grey rat) said. "You don't know... and you're eating," that cracked me up.  BounceGiggle. My sister said that it wasn't funny.

I saw it last night at the Drive-In.  I agree with Skaboi: the animation was fantastic.  The emotion Remy showed with just a nod or shake of the head was uncanny.

Story-wise, I thought MONSTERS, INC. and TOY STORY were leagues better.  This one was interesting, but not quite as gripping story-wise.

You could sure tell Brad Bird directed this one, too.  Stylistically very similar to THE INCREDIBLES (which is not a bad thing), Brad sure 'brands' his projects at Pixar.  I've never noticed the other Pixar directors mark their territory quite as definitively.

Overall, an ejoyable movie.  I think part of the "problem," if there is one, is that we've come to expect such a high standard with Pixar that even great productions seem 'normal' or mediocre by comparison.  Will this one have the longevity of FINDING NEMO or TOY STORY?  Who knows.  But Pixar continues to set the bar in CGI animated productions, and I am now 100% convinced they are handing Dreamworks (now firmly in milking-the-Shrek-franchise mode) their lunch and I have not seen anything from Blue Sky since ROBOTS a few years ago.

I finally saw this one, too. And while it was not as emotionally involving as some of the other Pixar films I've seen, the more I think about it, the more it grows on me. If only because it had so much to say about . . .

one's place in one's family.
the discrimination women face in the commercial kitchen.
what is the true meaning of criticism.
the crass commercialization of a beloved character

IMHO well worth seeing.

I wish to see it, number one I love Pixar movies, number two because I plan on working in a kitchen.

Now it's time to sing the nation anthem IN AMERICA!!!
