Ashamed I never watched this when came out - that was great! Some excellent characters - loved the moment the Dracula-like restaurant critic tastes the colourful ratatouille and is transported to his youth .. and the first kiss almost rewarded with an eyeful of mace :P
Ratatouille is a movie that convinces us to feel safe with a rat preparing food for us in our kitchen. Not only are the characters well-developed and funny, but the story takes it all the way to the road of success!
Ratatouille might not have the emotional feel that a usual Pixar movie does, but it truly makes up for it in the entertaining topic and its protagonist, as well as the story it serves up to the audience.
Why are films about cooking so inspirational?! Especially how this is about a rat cooking! The message of 'anyone can cook' really resonates here, even as an adult. It made me feel motivated and pumped and inspired and hopeful. It was a lovely feeling and the soundtrack really accompanied that as well as the wonderful animation and scenery of Paris.
Ratatouille is such an inventive, enthralling film with memorable characters, a complex plot and a meaningful message, that it's easy to see why this film was so well revered. For some reason though, I've never liked this movie as much as I thought it deserved. It's undeniably a great movie, I just don't like something about it.
Brad Bird at the artistic height of his considerable skill as both an animator, writer, and director. Patton Oswalt and Ian Holm both produce great performances, but Janeane Garofalo's vocal work is so poorly delivered it distracts from the film's great visuals.
