Ratatouille! [Jun. 30th, 2007|07:03 am]

[Current Mood |jubilantjubilant]

I can say, without any bias whatsoever, that Ratatouille is quite simply the bestest movie in forever. I expect to stop grinning madly about it sometime next year. :>

It's wonderfully cute and funny. The plot is not deep, as befits a "kid's movie", but makes up for it by being long and having a lot of interesting little chapters and reversals. Above all, they did a surprisingly good job of modeling rats and French kitchens. (I absolutely love the sequence where we see him running through a building's walls from the rat POV at rat speed; it's just the way I'd pictured it... not that I visualize these sorts of things or anything... heh.)

I think it gives non-rat-fans a glimpse into the cuteness we see in the li'l guys. If you like rats, or fun movies, or fine food, or Paris, or sewers, or not rats, or roux, or -- look, just go see this movie! :D

73/5 rattypaws!

Yea, your just a tad bit bias. Well I'm going to see it this afternoon to get an Otters view of this rat movie.

And stop gnawing on the coffee table!

No, I'm totally objective about -- OMG cute ratties! Whee! Ahem. What was I saying?

Indeed. My cuisine specialty is French (and Chinese). And it's a semi-toony gray rat... Yeah, it's hard for me not to feel a bond with this movie. :D

How do they do with adult jokes for the parents?

There's not much in the way of adult-specific jokes but they did a good job of making the humor all-ages; it isn't just dopey stuff.

Nic, thank you for not posting any spoilers. It will be two months before I get to see it.

Oh, of course not! I know better than that. :)

I was fortunate enough to not hear any spoilers, either. I'd say that you should be okay, as there isn't really any one "big secret" that'll ruin the whole thing; just dodge any discussion of specific plot bits.

I just got back from watching it, and I have to agree. I think as Pixar movies rate this is one of the best ones yet.

I'm seeing it tomorrow. As you know, I'm a fan of Paris and French cuisine. And I'll be back in Paris in a little over a month! I want to see the movie in Paris in French.

Seeing it in Paris earns bonus cool points. :)

Saw it last night, and it was incredibly awesome. Remy is so cute it should be illegal. I think this could be my favorite Pixar film.

Just try and tell me you aren't tossing around building a fursuit of him! ;)

Yay! :D

And, yeah, I won't try to deny that... soon as I get my fursuit room unpacked...
