Early & Enthusiastic Reaction to Pixar's "Ratatouille"

Apparently an AICN reader called The Chemist got to see Pixar's "Ratatouille" about eight months early -- and he loved it. Better than "The Incredibles" is what the guy's raving. Yeah, right.

From AICN: "The plot seems simple, but like any Brad Bird flick, it has a ton of heart and humor. Much of the action scenes were storyboards and gray-scale, but still promised to be dazzling when complete. The humor moments were hilarious and had the audience rolling. The voice acting was fantastic, with no recognizable A-list Hollywood stars to distract you from the characters, no singing in the edit that we saw either. The music was completely forgettable as it was just filler at this point I suspect. During the movie Lasseter would scribble down notes at various points.

...
Anyway, I cant wait to see the finished movie. Personally I liked it better than The Incredibles, the rough cut we saw tonight was right up there with Finding Nemo, my personal Pixar favorite.

Still in awe,

The Chemist"

Brad Bird = Genius, in a time when the word gets thrown about way too haphazardly.

When I first heard about Flushed Away I thought, "hm, rats, well I guess that makes sense in the 'what animals haven't we animated yet' list". Then I saw this and thought, "2 cgi movies about rats? Hmm, that's weird."

Guess we'll just have to wait and see how this one turns out, here's to hopin' it's another Pixar masterpiece.

Does anyone else get the feeling that Pixar's movies are like the old Disney movies for this generation? I do.

I agree with the last bit. Disney has lost itself, advertising to preteens who have no taste for good movies or TV shows. Pixar has taken over, giving us quality humor, acting, and storylines where they're so sorely needed.

And yes, I heard Ratatouille was going to be great. This just confirms that a bit more.

I hope it is really good, I wasn't that impressed with the trailer. But both of Brad Birds other films are really good, The Iron Giant was a great.
