You guys know how John Ratzenberger is in every Pixar film. Well I can't for the life of me remember who he did the voice for in Finding Nemo. BTW, could someone tell me who he does the voice for in Ratatouille also. I really would like to know.


Held em off for a few seconds and found this: John Ratzenberger voices Mustafa in Ratatouille Smile

Well, I am a strange one. I have seen every Pixar movie (besides Ratatouille, which I soon will) with the exception of Toy Story. For some reason, I've just never gotten around to it. Maybe someday I will. Smile
I always enjoy every movie Pixar produces.

Pixar rocks! We own them all, except the first Toy Story, and our older son goes through streaks where a different one is his favorite. For a long time Finding Nemo was the only thing he would watch. Then it was A Bug's Life and then Cars was really big for a while.

I think all the Pixar movies are great. The best thing about them is that they're still funny after multiple viewings. As a parent, that's essential. Wink

I'm hoping to take our older son to Ratatouille soon. He's old enough to sit through a full lenght feature at a theater, so it shouldn't be a waste of time and money.

It's too hard to pick a favorite. I really like Cars and The Incredibles in and of themselves. Finding Nemo is great as well. And my wife and I saw Toy Story 2 on our first date.

I saw Ratatouille yesterday, and I really enjoyed it. There were very few people in the audience, which was a shame. I think Cars may have made me laugh more, but I enjoyed Ratatouille more. Go see it!

Hey guys, I just saw Ratatouille and I must say it is a great film. I highly recommend anyone here seeing it. Now I can say I've seen every Pixar film in theaters. BTW, that animated short before the film is great and it looks like there will at least one more Pixar film. It's called WALL-E. Here's the teaser trailer.

I second that. Ratatouille is hilarious.

I don't judge Pixar films on their teasers anymore. They usually don't contain any footage of the movie and they don't really show much. I remember what I thought of Ratatouille a year ago. I didn't interest me at all, but now that I have seen it I really enjoyed it. So by the time the real trailer comes out for WALL-E I'll probably be convinced to see it. And since it's a Pixar film I know it will be good.

I guess...but I saw the teasers for the other ones and liked them as well as the actual films. To each his/her own, I guess.

Also after that, there will be a movie called "Up" and then Toy Story 3.

It's the other way around for me. When I used to see Pixar teasers, I would think something like "What in the world are they thinking?" The last few haven't really done that for me, and I'm already looking forward to Wall-E. I guess I must be getting used to them. Razz

I'm a bit biased because I inherently ♥ all robots. Pixar has yet to disappoint... I didn't like the idea of Ratatouille when I saw the first trailer and I didn't think Cars would work a a movie, but Cars was great and Ratatouille looks pretty good too. So even if I was skeptical, I wouldn't worry about it.

Has anyone else noticed that in Pixars' movies they always look at the life and daily activities of something besides humans? Bugs, toys, cars, fish, superheroes, rats, monsters, and now robots. I find this really appealing cause no one seems to really think about this very often. It just shows that these people behind Pixar have awesome imaginations to expand on "What if a monster's life was like...?" and then actually act upon it and make it look good and carry a good message suitable for all ages. I think it's awesome that they're all G-rated and they're so well done. Every time I look at showtimes for theaters, almost all the movies are R. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind seeing R-rated stuff. It's really not a big deal for me, but I just don't understand why society has lowered its standards to the degree where we feel we must focus on excessive use or showings of violence, coarse language, wanton sexuality, crude humor, etc. I'm glad that some people and companies such as Pixar can still not use that and be accepted into the world of today.

I agree and it isn't even something unique to Pixar - look at stuff by Dreamworks and all seems a bit fake. Pixar has such a freshness.

And the new trailer rocks!!!

I really love Pixar films. Altough Toy Story 1 and 2 are the best. Ironically my first word was "Buzz."

That's true, Dreamworks, other than the first Shrek, is not really that great. Pixar has made quite a few classics.

Hey Don, doesn't that robot remind you of something?

It looks like such a stupid movie, but then again, all of Pixar's previous films have looked dumb and I ended up loving them. Cars, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Toy Story, and Monsters Inc are among my favorite movies ever. And of course, I'm a sucker for anything robotic.

Shocked I want to reach through the interwebs and punch you in the face for that!

*Slaps forehead* Guys, read the part of my quotation that isn't bolded! I LOVE PIXAR MOVIES, but when I see the trailers, I always think "eh, lame"

And this one is about a robot, so it's going to be the best yet!

Personally I think the EVE figure is really cool. The arm cannon gimmick is fun and unobtrusive looking and the eye changing function looks like a lot of fun.

Heh, I just found out that Wall*E is an acronym for Waste Allocation Load Lifter: Class Earth. Probably old news, right? But still, all this time I thought it was... Well, just a nifty name. Razz

I'm looking forward to this movie!

Alright, sorry to break up the Wall*E conversation here, but I've just read through the thread, and I've noticed a disturbing trend in these following quotes:

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!?!How could you all like Cars?!? It was honestly my LEAST favorite Pixar film of all time. The storyline was horrid, the whole thing was so sappy, ugh. In other Pixar films, they do a good job of "hiding" the morals, and while they are present, they don't detract at all from the movie. With Cars, it seemed like they were banging you over the head with them. It also had all the elements of an incredibly sappy movie. For one, EVERYTHING had a "tragic" backstory. The judge, the girl, the town itself- Come on! Also, how many times have you herd the "jerk meets other people, repents, and wins in the end" story? Other Pixar films have used it, but never as the principle storyline or the principle moral. But Cars did, and It just made the movie even worse. Oh, and the design of the cars really bugged me as well. Who looks at a car and, if they see a face, imagines the windshield as the eyes. I usually see the headlights as such, you know, like the Autobon cars in Disneyland. But in Cars, they just look deformed, and it doesn't help the movie whatsoever. The only good part of Cars was the ending, as Pixar usually exels in that part of the movie. Anyway, overall, I didn't like it. If it wasn't for "Shark Tale", this would easily be my least favorite animated film of all time, and I'm very dissaponted in Pixar for the abomination.

Oh, and for what it's worth, my favorite Pixar films are Toy Story 2, Monsters Incorporated, and Finding Nemo.
