I'm struggling to find the sarcasm in here, please say it is! Wall-E was fantastic and Up! was one notch beneath.

Well if you thought they were terrible, that's probably a good omen. I loved them.

Though I have my doubts about Cars 2 and Monsters Inc 2 (even though TS2 tells me I needn't worry)

Re: UP
Well, the first Cars was, in my opinion, the one kind of crappy movie Pixar has done. There are others I've not been a huge fan of, but I just can't seem to care about cars reenacting the old Michael J. Fox vehicle, "Doc Hollywood". So needless to say, I'm not too pumped about Cars 2.

Loved Up though. Fantastic characters and storytelling, although there were definitely some holes in the villain bits...

Re: UP
Doug the dog was great. "Hi, my name is Doug. i LOVE you!"

and we got the littel Toy Story 3 teaser at the beginning too i noticed John Ratzenburger did the voice for the foreman at the beginning of the film (he's the voice of the pig in toy story).

I think neg1 is in the minority here because the films he didnt like are the best pixar films recently according to ... well.. everyone

Cars? not seen it. Did that get a cinema release in the EU?

Re: UP
Cars is weak imo. But Wall-E and Up! are just fantastic. I consider Wall-E to be a perfect film; a perfect 5 stars.

=================================================

ratatouille - weak story and plot about a rat being a chef?
typical romance storyline... and the locale being
in paris seemed cliche.

yes, there was some nice visuals, but overall it
didn't have the impact on me that 'toy story' and 'cars' did..

wall-e - a very heavy handed story with a political agenda.

i didn't like the main characters or any of the supporting
characters either... yes, i like robots. yes i like sci-fi, so
that was ok...

no, the weak 'romantic' element didn't grip me either, it
was pretty stereotypical, and didn't resonate with me at
all

again, the visuals were a step up, but the humor, and
storyline didn't appeal to me at all

up - again, a weak storyline about a man and boy trying to get
to a location? talking dogs? at least there wasn't a
cliched romance involved in it..

and to top it off, the visuals didn't really match their
previous quality either.

=============================
look, i'm a big fan of computer animation, and i try to see EVERY single
2d/3d animated film that comes out, some resonate with me more than
other..

toy story because it was first and novel to me, and the story was awesome.
cars, because my favorite toys as a child were cars, and seeing
them come to life really hit home with me about how much i loved
playing with them and them having personalities... also i could relate
to a lot of the characters in 'cars'..

i couldn't relate or find anything humorous or common in any of the
other films i mentioned..

yes, i'm sure many people enjoyed them, and the stories were satisfying
from your viewpoint, but to me them seemed rather vacous, or heavy-handed messages..

be seeing you

Re: UP
I'll never argue against Toy Story nor TS2. Both are great films. I'm shocked though, that someone would be so adamanently against what I consider an absolutely perfect movie, that of course being Wall-E. I know plenty of people that hate animated films because "they are just kids' movies." but clearly you do not fall into that category.

To each their own, I guess.
