It seems like that's all Mrs Junky and I go to the movies to see (We don't even have kids)..

 

MONSTERS INC

UP

RATATOUILLE

A BUG'S LIFE

TOY STORY

INCREDIBLES was very boring to me (I fell asleep in the theatre).

 

How 'bout MONSTERS VS ALIENS?

Only seen these 3:

 

1. Finding Nemo

 

(and didn't overly care for these two):

 

2. Toy Story

3. Toy Story 2

 

Can't say I really want to see the others at all. Who does stuff like Madagascar, Ice Age, Over The Hedge, Happy Feet and that one based on Little Red Riding Hood? I thought they were much better than what I imagine this crop to be like.

1. Cars

2. Finding Nemo

3. Toy Story

4. Toy Story 2

5. WALL-E

6. Incredibles

7. Monsters Inc.

8. UP

9. Ratatouille

10. A Bug's Life

 

have not seen Toy Story 3 yet. probably go this week

 

Cars is underrated imo, nice to see it high in your list. I suppose I'd go:

 

1. Monsters Inc (such a great film, fantastic dialogue with barely a word wasted - 10/10)

2. Toy Story 2

3. Toy Story

4. Finding Nemo

5. Cars

6. Incredibles

 

Up and Ratatouille are okay, but not up to the standard of these 5 imo and I haven't see WALL-E. A Bug's Life came out at the same time as Antz, which for me blew it away. Much funnier and great, great voices (e.g. Woody Allen as an ant with a tortured soul - genius).

I haven't seen all of the Pixars but of the ones I have seen, I'd say my faves were:

 

Monsters Inc. (Billy Crystal's voice work kills me)

Cars (my son's fave film, so it's a good thing I like it too; cuz he watches it OVER and OVER and OVER...)

The Incredibles

Ratatouille

Bug's Life

Toy Story (orig.) - never seen "2" or "3"

The Ice Age films are great, the 3rd was possibly even better than the first two, plus Shrek and Shrek 2 were excellent, but I think Monsters Inc is the best film of this type. I really recommend checking it out, such a funny film.

Toy Story 1 & 2 are probably the best........excellent entertainment.

 

I really enjoyed The Incredibles as well. You gotta love the French terrorist 'Bomb Voyage', brilliant.

 

Finding Nemo is also v good.

 

Havent seen Monsters Inc (my wife has and says its v good), Up or WALL-E.........

 

Absolutely love Ice Age 1 & 2 (havent seen 3).....Scrat is the best animated character ever IMO.

 

Cant stand Shrek.......although the donkey was mildly amusing.

Other than Ratatouille (A realistic mute rat controlling a chef under his hat...creepy!!!) they are all brilliant. Toy Story 3 is fantastic a must see.

 

Shrek is from Dreamworks...right? Not a Pixar thing.

Yup, Shrek is from Dreamworks, not Pixar. So was "Monsters Vs. Aliens" and the "Madagascar" flicks.

 

"Ice Age," and its sequels are from 20th Century Fox, as was "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs."

Ditto - I commented as they are films of the same genre, so worth comparing. Can't say I care too much who produced them.

 

Agree about The Incredibles, btw, it is very good. I also love Finding Nemo, but for me Monsters Inc stands alone as it is a perfect film - great for kids, very funny for adults, brilliant characters and excellent dialogue. Oh, and a fantastic ending.

Anyone know what order they are in as far as money goes?

 

According to Wikipedia (dunno how up-to-date their info is), Pixar's all time champ is "Finding Nemo," with a worldwide gross of $867 million and change (!!), followed by "UP" ($731 mil) "The Incredibles" ($631 mil) and "Ratatouille" ($623 mil).

 

BTW, Terry (Martinsane) and Glen - count me in as a big fan of "The Incredibles" as well. That flick pushed two of my major Geek buttons (animation and superhero/comic book action); it was incredibly (haha) well done. I wouldn't mind a sequel to that one somewhere down the road (Wiki sez that they already have "Cars 2" and "Monsters Inc. 2" in the pipeline though).

I bet CARS merchandise out ranks all the rest though.

I bought a little Nemo stuffed toy fish for my wife a few years back that would disagree with that. ;)

Sorry to rain on this parade but I think CGI has lost its magic for me after Toy Story 2. There were just toooooo many of these movies and ALOT are just mediocre at best. I'm still sticking with my Hayao Miyazaki cartoons.

There are till plenty of great CGI films - as mentioned earlier, Ice Age 3 was great and there are plenty of others. Monsters Versus Aliens springs to mind - very, very funny film. Some dross around too, but all genres have their weaker output.

 

As for Miyazaki, I enjoyed Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke, bizarre though they were. Howl's Moving Castle was just too weird for its own good, I didn't really enjoy it. Any other tips? I really want to see The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, that one looks very interesting.

    • ....If we have something negative to say we will surely let it fly
    • Still waiting for the  2 inch dick Chinese to be held responsible for giving the world the plague.POS Biden Admin and their pussy diplomatic boycott - forget the entire d@mn thing.Send NO athletes.
    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
