Finally saw this last night. Great movie.
And for the first time a Pixar film truly hit the mark emotionally for me, the viewer. Sure, some other Pixar films may have elicited a "Awwww" or perhaps even a "oh my!" response, but the opening montage by itself had more emotional depth than anything I had seen come out of the Mouse House or Pixar since I first saw Bambi*.

Turned off halfway through in disgust.

From knowing very little about this film as it's a cartoon which I generally don't care for, I finally came around about it and was, er, up for seeing Up! But then I realised from this trailer that it actually was a remake of an actual Disney live action movie all along? Really pisses me off. I know i rant on about remakes and se/prequelitis all the time but it is for a good reason. Now I can see how bad it's really gotten. You know cartoons have the ability to be about ANYTHING they want as no story or scenario is impossible, so why do remakes? Never been done has it? But now you're all telling me that the must see Pixar movie of the last year or so was a fucking remake all along?

Fuck off am I seeing this now. You guys really have shit taste, I'm gonna say it.

I will never, ever watch this movie again. Most depressing animated adventure comedy ever.

actually, I wouldn't mind seeing some arm of Disney mining the sensibilities of the live-action kids' movies of the 70's, like "No Deposit, No Return", "Bedknobs and Broomsticks", "The Apple Dumpling Gang", etc.


and Fievel, it is a crime that you haven't seen "Wall E" yet, one of Pixar's best, imo, but then I am also a huge fan of "Finding Nemo", which was also a Stanton-directed Pixar flick

who was talking about "The Incredibles"? I do think it is the most over-rated Pixar movie, as I have said here before. it is better than "Cars", of course, but then "Cars" doesn't get the praise heaped upon it the way "The Incredibles" did. until "Cars 2" is released "The Incredibles" owns the 2nd to last spot on my own Pixar movie rating bar graph....

Oh yeh, kirk heaven forfend a film that presents a cohrent family unit that learns from each other, supports each other, instills value of fairness (yes really BB isn't anywhere near and Ayn Randy as some people may think), justice and community. Yeah fuck that.
Elitism is positing that your taste is equivalent to quality, you hate "Hamlet" does it make it "bad"? If you think so, you're one elite motherfucker.

I grew up on a diet of that Disney sappy, corny, family-values stuff and i think that there was nothing wrong with it, either. just look at how kids love SpongeBob to see evidence of where a sense of innocent joy in life is something that kids naturally embrace.

Family Values in movies can be OK, if done in a certain way. But done in another way, you can ruin a movie. Case in point, some of Spielberg's films. And The Incredibles.

when it comes across as too by-the-numbers or calculatingly manipulative then it does end up detracting from the movie, i agree. the reason why "The Incredibles" didn't really do it for me is that the movie never really got me invested in the family unit to begin with, and then using Baby Jack the way it did to help save the day was something i think everyone could see coming a mile away. frankly, i think "Spy Kids" did a better job with that same story theme....
