    Up Vs. Nemo

    According to BoxOfficeMojo, up is currently tracking at only $4 million behind Nemo, and it has ben doing better in the dailies than nemo for about a week. Do you think it's got a shot to take nemo's throne as thje highest grossing Pixar film to date. I hope so. Nemo is their weakest film and yet the highest grossing. Go figure!

    I totally disagree with you on this point. I thought that Nemo was a great film.

    Re: Up Vs. Nemo

    I like Finding Nemo okay, but I seriously don't think it deserves what it's gotten merchandise and publicity wise. I think Up was a much better movie. It's story was more imaginative and the characters didn't feel so predictable.
    Weither it beats Nemo or not, I hope it gets its deserved recognition(I'm reasonably sure it will at this point. It's already getting a lot).

    Re: Up Vs. Nemo

    that would be awesome
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Nemo was great, but didn't make me cry. Up make me cry like a little baby.

    Re: Up Vs. Nemo

    Nemo is definitely not Pixar's weakest film. I'd have to give that one to The Incredibles.

    Up was great. It was extremely sad at some points, and then extremely funny at others. That balance, in my mind, is what made it such a great movie.

    UP was a much better picture than Nemo (still a great film) in almost all ways. Perhaps Nemo has the merchandise edge, but UP is just an amazing film. Even better than WALL-E.

    Agree 100%. Though, I do think Up is extremely shortchanged in the merchandise. I'm STILL waiting for action figures...

    I could not disagree with you more. Cars was, by any standard, their weakest film overall.

    It wasn't a bad film just weak. In all honesty though you can't look at any of the Pixar films and justifiably say it's a bad film. They are all quite good.

    Agreed. What I find interesting is that most people I know think Cars is the weakest film (but, as you said, not bad, just weaker than the others), yet it's one of the 2 with a sequel. Interesting...but I digress.

    Fully agreed.

    I think that has more to do with merchandise than just about anything else. Iger want's more marketable Pixar films. And the Cars merchandise continues to sell well after all these years. So it is only natural that Disney would want to milk Pixar in much the same way they have done some of their own movie franchises. Hopefully Pixar will make a Cars 2 which is better than or equal to the first, but it is a risk.

    Rats, Robots, and Balloons, Pixar hasn't exactly been giving Disney a lot to play with on the merchandise side. That will all change with Cars 2 (for good or bad).

    Re: Up Vs. Nemo

    I'm squarely in the Nemo camp for this discussion. In fact, Finding Nemo is my favorite of all the Pixar movies. And while I liked Up a lot, I didn't love it. But like Fishbulb wrote, it would be difficult to say that there are any bad Pixar movies.

    Re: Up Vs. Nemo

    PIXAR films not merchantable? That's shows how nearsighted Disney can be. They have been so caught up in the Disney Princess line, and Hannah Montana, that they have lost sight of some great opportunities. I noticed this first when Herbie Fully Loaded came out. They could have put out a line of Herbie Happy Meal toys, but went with Shark Boy and Lava Girl stuff instead.

    There is a lot of stuff they could market from UP. Action Figures, Kevin Plush, Dog plushes, heck even make the house as a playset.

    But for PIXAR, it's about making great movies, something that other studios seem to have forgotten (and only get lucky when they stumble on one). Every PIXAR film I think has out shown the previous one. Stories have gotten more complex, emotions more um... emotional. PIXAR animation aside (and it still the best in the business), any of these films could have been make with popcicle sticks and shadow puppets and still been as good.

    Re: Up Vs. Nemo

    Oh.... and each one has been very different than any of the previous ones, showing that they aren't just making the same movie over and over again.

    Do I think any of them are weak? No, but some appeal to me more than others.

    Even better, is that PIXAR makes horrible trailers, so little is really ever known about a film before it comes out, and all the best jokes and lines aren't ruined months before the film is released (as most every other films trailer insists on doing)
