Nope. You guessed incorrectly. It has to do with the entire thing. Your 'great' choices also seemed a little off, but that's based on my own choices and personal taste ... which I wouldn't foist onto the world like other people tend to do.

Oh, look, I don't even have to give you an Unhelpful Vote. They're already starting to accumulate. :)

Let me guess: It has mostly to do with the films I ranked as bad (well, presumably barring Cars 2), and a bit to do with my marginal flicks?

Seriously, if all of America's satellites were to be hit by an EMP, among the first to die out would be those that'd burst out in tears upon hearing someone saying that Finding Nemo, Wall-E and Up were all terrible films.

Or, for that matter, just about any other film.

Your tiers would probably drive some people to tears. Me, I'm nonplussed at those rankings. To each his own.

I'd rank Ratatouille in the second tier of Pixar films: The pretty good. How I'd rank them by tiers are as followed:

Great (or very good): Toy Story, Toy Story 2, and The Incredibles
Pretty good: Ratatouille, Toy Story 3, Brave
Marginal: A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc., Cars
Bad: Finding Nemo, Wall-E, Up, Cars 2

D. Mok, "And most of the male Pixar heroes lack the one thing that makes Pixar films great -- a sense of humour and quirk."

????????????????????????????????? !!!

Woody and Buzz not humorous and quirky?

Ratatouille is one of the lesser Pixar films. However, it's still to be lauded for taking something small (cooking) and making a successful film out of it. Linguini has got to be one of the weakest Pixar characters ever created, though. I think male characters tend to be a Pixar weakness. They always have great female characters with lots of personality (EVE from Wall-E, Elastigirl from The Incredibles, Dory from Finding Nemo, Colette from Ratatouille), but the male protagonists can be clichéd and predictable. Linguini is blander than white bread with no talents of his own, Mr. Incredible (The Incredibles) is a basic midlife-crisis Dad, Sully (Monsters, Inc.) has practically no personality, and Marlin (Finding Nemo) does almost nothing to further his own quest. And most of the male Pixar heroes lack the one thing that makes Pixar films great -- a sense of humour and quirk.

Posted on Dec 26, 2012 4:32:41 PM PST
There might be some mice in the Nutcracker sequence.

Which presumably features no rats.

The Midvale Repertory Theatre will be putting on their annual holiday extravaganza this weekend, featuring delightful renditions of highlights from "The Nutcracker", "A Christmas Carol", plus: "Remy Wants a Spatula". I'm looking forward to this lovely musical production.

In case anyone else would like to watch it with friends or their whole family. Who don't have it on DVD.

D. Larson says:
Disney owns Pixar, yes?

So isn't saying a Pixar movie isn't a Disney movie kind of like the nameplates on old GM cars that stated "Body by Fisher"? Classier than saying "Body by Chevy" but it still comes from the same factory.

If you have it on DVD why do you care if it's on a pay cable station?

I wasn't a fan of Ratatouille. It was alright, just not the best of Pixar's films.

yes it is clear now..Disney did the production part of the movie and Pixar did the animation part of the movie..If you have this movie check out & read the back cover of the dvd. Also Disney did the marketing for this movie and they
are in partnership with Pixar. Ratatouille will be on the T.V. ck. times below...

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 24, 2012 3:49:28 PM PDT
But things were clear. You worded your original post looking like it was made by Disney, not Pixar.

That's all for now!

Do you have the movie? Check out the front & back of the dvd cover...And what does it say. I read it already. I think we are both on the right track.

My point they are associated together in this movie . Even though pixar did the animation part of this movie. And I don't ramble on. I agree it is distributed by Disney. Okay. I just like to make things perfectely clear & no misunderstandings.
