New Pixar film, meant to be fantastic etc. Been looking forward to this one for ages, anyone planning to see it?
'train friends'. Going to bella italia beforehand.
that due to the late release we've had six weeks of the characters in subway adverts and that before we've even had the chance to see it.
and yes, will go see.
Really cringeworthy stuff.
doesn't look up/wall-e good but will still massively enjoy it I imagine
but I really didn't like Brave (though my wife tells me this is because I'm sexist) and the only other films they've done since Up have all been sequels, though I did quite like Toy Story 3. This sounds bonkers at least so there's hope it'll be at least as imaginative as Pixar at their peak, even though I'm not expecting it to be as moving.
Not seen Brave.
Up is massively overrated. Mid-ranking Pixar at best.
Hope we get an Incredibles sequel one day, I know they said Brad Bird was working on one.
which terrifies me, I love the original over all other Pixar, easily in my top 10 films, I don't need a sequel. In Bird I trust, though, he has a perfect record when it comes to animation (Tomorrowland was middling).
I'm usually thinking about That Montage which is astounding, and forget about all the talking dogs. Though that said, even they were funny, and almost like Pixar were showing off - 'hey, you know what's really tired and dumb and impossible to make funny that we could make funny? Animals that talk!' Also probably a burn on Imageworks.
the rest of the film: less so.
Similarly with Wall-E: the first 30 minutes or so are probably the best thing Pixar have done, but then it slides from there.
about how much praise this is getting for being original, and claiming it's a ripoff of The Numbskulls from The Beano.
that would probably be me.
Also, I'd point out that it started in the Beezer.
why it's best I stay off Facebook.
I haven't seen Brave (it looked Dreamworks-ugly), but this was the best since Toy Story 3. You know a Pixar movie about emotions is going to kick you in the balls and could be seen as cloying or manipulative, but I thought spacing out the more "emotional" moments worked out for the better.
Bing Bong ;__;
& seems like a really good way of getting kids thinking about mental health.
definitely top 5 pixar
After the world's most perfect trailer (seriously, that's the best ever animated short) the full film felt like a let-down. The trailer stuff, with the interactions between the different people and their head-guys is what I came to see, didn't like it all being confined to the main character's head. The plot felt a bit arbitrary and painfully predictable, there were flashes of wonderful creativity, but seemed hemmed in by rules set up to serve the story. Not a lot of laughs from a packed audience of all ages, people walking out during the little snippets in the credits. It was obviously set apart from the usual animated fare by the gorgeous top-notch Pixar production, and some agreeable voice acting, but I reckon without that, this film would have been forgettable.
Seeing as people seem to be using this as an excuse to make digs at Brave; I'm here to tell you that Brave is a wonderful film, stop taking out your inner feelings of inadequacy because your life sucks and you can't maintain an erection out on Brave, world at large.
Saw it last month. I know it wasn't perfect, but I still loved it. Take Toy Story 3 out of the equation and it's the best thing Pixar have done since The Incredibles.
That volcano short was horseshit though.
The problem Pixar have is that they have set their bar so high with previous films that they can't continually raise it. It's got all of the usual elements but can't quite match the best of the canon.
Don't think kids will "get" the fact that basically it's an essay on mental health though. The kids in my screening were basically like "mummy why's she sad?" and "mummy when can I go skating?"
Anyway. Obvs I thought it was great, maybe my fave Pixar yet.
Kids in my showing were like 7-8 or younger. Deffo too young to get the Quite Good Mental Health Aspect of it, perhaps. Tbh that doesn't detract from it in any way.
the 'Puberty' button.
btw - that is so going to be Inside Out 2: Riley discovers boys and goes through puberty. Featuring the 6th emotion, Lust. Probably voiced by Sharon Stone.
that they do it like The 400 Blows and make a couple more films at varying points in Riley's life.
I really enjoyed it. Didn't go in with any expectations really, ended up laughing my arse off throughout.
Did it remind anyone else of Tron?
I think he might be a trainee DiSer
This was amazing
Best Pixar film I think. Utterly magnificent.
More new ideas and fewer sequels please.
Definitely top 5 Pixar. Great score, some really nice ideas, quite strangely structured and heart punchingly sad in places. The short that precedes it is unbearable though...really bad. You thought Brave was bad? Might wanna stagger getting to your seat.
The short they have before The Good Dinosaur later this year is meant to be very good though.
Was pleasantly surprised that my niece also did as I was thinking the whole way through that it was a bit of a kids-film-for-adults but she was dead into it. Loved Bing-Bong, little bit of dust in the room with him there.
I've also had that volcano song stuck in my head for the last two days now.
Triple Dent Gum...'
because it encouraged kids to look at their toys in a new way, while reminding adults of the transience of childhood. Fun for the young; devastating for the older.
The genius of Inside Out is that it does for THE HUMAN BRAIN what Toy Story did for toys.
Top five Pixar:
2. Toy Story Trilogy (I'm allowed to combine them, shut up)
3. The Incredibles
4. Inside Out
5. Monsters Inc.
3. Inside Out
5. Monsters Inc.
2. The Incredibles
4. Inside Out (very provisional)
5. Finding Nemo - or maybe Monsters Inc.
Ratatouille is simply the greatest animated film ever made. Nothing else comes close IMO.
Up > Toy Stories > Inside Out > Others
