    Why did I not watch this sooner. Amazing!
    Avoid the sequel.

    :(

    I thought the sequel was enjoyable enough.

    It is. Just nowhere near the first film. Its just that it was a familiar re-tread of standard Dreamworks fare instead of the feeling that they had finally matured with the first film.

    To be fair, Pixar came up with Cars. And Cars 2. And Planes. All of which are shiiiiiiiiiiiiit (and, also, 'Doc Hollywood' over and over again).

    Indeed. Ever since the Disney buyout, Pixar have been slowly losing it too. Although I thought Planes was the Disney studio and not Pixar?

    Mercifully, Pixar shorts are still wonderful pieces of work.

    Planes is Disney, thankfully. They didnt need that shitstain on their CV after cars 2.

    And, yeah, I thought Kung Fu Panda 2 was really good. Better than the first in most respects.

    Ah. I thought after the merger that anything Pixar would have the Disney badge on, and that anything that originated with Pixar would continue to be worked on by Pixar, my mistake.

    Pixar is dead.
    Brave = Shit
    Cars = Shit
    Finding Nemo = loosely held together collection of slightly amusing skits but not a film
    Cars 2 = ...
    Planes = We now know we're shit so we will hide behind Disney
    UP = speculative hollywood tear jerker followed up with... shit
    Toy Story 3d = milking it much?

    Menawhile How to train UR Dragonlol, WuShu Panda and Tangled are doing laps around them.

    Wouldn't be surprised if we saw a Toy Story reboot

    That was only a couple of years ago, wasn't it? I don't think we've had anything post-reverse-buyout yet.

    This is the end 8/10

    Very funny in places. Seth Rogan always has the same problem in his films though. Editing. Still, I had a blast with it

    I've been asking him to borrow his DVD of it but he keeps refusing.

    Disney bought Pixar in 2006. Taking the average production cycle of a pixar film - roughly 3 to 4 years - they started production on Cars 2, Brave and Monster University post buyout.

    :/

    Basically, the three worst films they have made, sadly.

    I find Disney's own CG animations to be better than Pixar's at the moment. Tangled and Wreck It Ralph were both better than Pixar's post-Toy Story 3 output.

    To be honest I'm fed up with animations where they give animals/inanimate objects voices. Something new please.

    I think Brave was a bit longer due to all the production issues they were having - replacing the director half way through etc. But yeah, damn.

    @CosmicFuzz I wouldn't bother mate, he made a big song and dance about never giving you Up.

    There's hope on the horizon. Brad Bird has been talking to Pixar about a sequel to The Incredibles.

    I'm actually not sure that's much hope for me. It's not talking animals/objects so I'll give it that, but I found it a bit dull. They were basically The Fantastic Four.

    I think I'd prefer individual original stories rather than sequels.

    What's the problem with talking animals?
  • Deleted user 20 December 2013 14:01:13
    Pixar used to be the best studio out there.

    Finding nemo, wall e, toy story, monsters inc, incredibles etc.

    I still loved brave to be honest but cars, the new monster inc and up were shit.

    I've enjoyed Disneys john lasetter? Produced films more:..tangled, bolt etc.

    Still I think toy story 1, finding nemo and wall e near perfect movies.

    @TarickStonefire I didn't *know* how it would end but I didn't get any sense it would end any other way either. For that reason, it just didn't seem that tense.

    As for the plothole, I am not sure if I just misunderstood it. It's basically at the end when the 6 don't have corresponding white slips at the airport. Fine, they could probably blag one dude missing it but six?? They really glossed over that bit I thought so it came across as a plothole frankly. Maybe I just misunderstood what happened.

    As for the unnecessary scenes - all the ones involving Mendes' son. They just seemed like odd superficial character development that raised more questions than anything else. I could really have done without them. It just made his character a bit confusing for me. Just made it a bit hard to empathise with him. What were his motivations? Either expand on it properly and give us a proper insight into his life or leave it out I think. Each to their own though I guess!

    A field In England

    Crikey/10

    Really interesting film. But fuck knows where to start. Or end. Its like a sadistic/black humour monty python film.

    Theres a lot to like, the film looks beautiful, and is expertly directed, and where else have i seen a civil war film that deals with the (how i saw it) the carnage of war, and the balance of god/science/ and the self? Pretty much no where, and then theres constant bloke jokes about pubs and willies so ...

    The film often mearenders - it would do the plot, direction, themes, the magic mushrooms are disorientating - I not sure what it was about - and whether the 4 deserters simply met a bloke looking for treasure and that was it.

    Really want to watch it again soon. Not sure what it was about, but it was certainly compelling

    7/10

    Don Jon - 6/10

    Watched it yesterday, can barely recall it today. Something-about-something-about-internet-porn-addiction-bad-mmkay, and how an aging, classy Julianne Moore is far sexier than an ever-increasingly cheap and tawdry looking Scarlett Johanssan, whose Noo Jawseewness was absolutely cringe-inducing. JGL puts yet another feather in his cap though, and a weak film allows him to shine.

    Critters - 7/10

    Flu today, guilty pleasure time. As great and awful as it always was.

    Sweetwater - 8/10

    Dark, strangely comical Western, with January Jones as a scarred woman seeking bloody revenge. Unfortunately, her story and performance is not only the pivotal point of the entire film, it's also the weakest.

    The reasons for such a high score are Jason Issacs and Ed Harris, playing a dark psychotic preacher and unconventional eccentric sheriff respectively, absolutely hamming it up without crossing a line, and having a ball in such outlandish roles, dwarfing everything else on show. The scenes together are sublime, and the playful teasing of Harris is brilliant against a stern Issacs. I'd wager that JJ could've been entirely unnecessary with a more thorough reworking and different focus to the story, and would've been even better as a result.

    Insidious Chapter 2

    Incredulous more like. Continues on from the first, confusing and cheap in places.

    Just plain boring

    2/10
