If you want true Disney quality, support this movie. I have seen it twice already, and will be seeing it again in the theatre. To send Disney the message that we want quality, please see Ratatouille. It is better than "Finding Nemo," "The Incredibles," "Monster's Inc.," "Cars," and "A Bug's Life." It is on par with "Toy Story 1 and 2."
CNN is calling this the best Pixar film yet. They likened it to the early Disney animation under Walt, only better. They said the thing that Pixar does well, is telling an original story. How can I disagree?
I wanted to love Ratatouille. Sadly, the animation is just so fantastic, the rats were freaking me out. But other than my fear of realistic rodents, this movie was wonderful! I waited through the credits hoping for "out takes" - none were seen It deserved the good ratings it is getting.
I just came back from it. I thought it was very poor and I was dissapointed. However, from the first trailer I saw, I had no desire to see it. The only reason I saw it is because I've seen every other pixar (and loved them all, except cars which I only liked). This just wasn't funny to me. It was as unique as the past movies have been...It just lacked the charm. Wall-E looks promising though.
Wow, this is exactly how I feel, especially the bolded part.
I didn't care for it. I wanted to like it, I really did. After hearing all the great reviews, I went in with very high expectations. Plus, it's Pixar, I love their movies.
I didn't find it funny, it was actually quite boring. Yes the story was great, it just didn't do it for me. I did like the visuals, very beautiful, everything looked real. I'm not a rat person, but Remy was very cute.
The short before the movie, Lifted, was very cute!! I loved the little green guy. He sort of reminded me of myself. When he got angry and started pushing all the buttons...yeah, totally would have done the same.
This joins Cars at the bottom of my Pixar list. Hopefully Wall E, Toy Story 3, and all the others will be better.
Everybody’s got a laughing place. Trouble is, most folks won’t take the time to go look for it. And where it is for one, it mightn’t be for another. ~ Splash Mountain
I think this film, is much better on the 2nd viewing. The first time, you're not sure what exactly to expect and sometimes you're unsure if they should have went that way. But when you watch it again, it solidifies what you questioned previously and it works fantastic.
It is one of the more frantic of the Pixar films though. I don't think there's a real quiet moment in it. Like the other films have some down time. I think Ratatouille just plows right through.
From Yahoo News:
According to studio estimates issued on Sunday, "Ratatouille" about a rat who aspires to become a gourmet chef sold $47.2 million worth of tickets during its first three days. It took the No. 1 slot ahead of the new Bruce Willis movie "Live Free or Die Hard" with $33.2 million.
Ratatouille did not make as much money as CARS did on it's first weekend, but CARS didn't have to compete with as many other films as Ratatouille does this year.
