Ratatouille Theatrical Review

Ratatouille Theatrical Review
Purchase  Blu-ray | Digital HD
First off let me preface this review by saying I am not the biggest fan of Pixar. I feel that that previous story lines have been weak. Even though Pixar's movies have always been somewhat entertaining, they've never reached the the level of classic Disney animation and storytelling. However, with Ratatouille, I saw a story that begins to rival classic Disney movies such as Dumbo and Pinocchio.

Ratatouille is directed by, Academy Award™-winning director Brad Bird (The Incredibles) it is the ultimate tale of finding discovering and being true to yourself.

Despite his family's objections Remy, the rat, sets out of fulfill his dream of becoming a chef and enjoying the finer things in life. His dreams seem to be within reach when he ends up living beneath the restaurant of his culinary hero, Augusted Gusteau. Remy quickly forms a bond with Linguini, the garbage boy. Without revealing too much Remy and Linguini's adventures turn the Paris food scene upside down.

In true Disney/Pixar storytelling Remy learns about friendship, family and to be true to oneself.

The computer animation from Pixar is once again simply amazing. It seems that with every film Pixar takes computer animation to a new level (including a new cg effect called squashy and stretchy). I wouldn't be surprise if this cg effect was used in more Pixar films. Pixar has always paid attention to detail, and this time they really did their homework. The city of Paris has never looked so beautiful on the silver screen and the 3D food makes your mouth water and your stomach growl.

Ratatouille is definitely a movie for all ages, and is as touching and moving as any Pixar picture movie has ever been (this reviewer even got a little choked up and teary eyed by the film ending scene

Hidden Mickey Alert

Be sure not to keep an eye out for the hidden Mickey. Hint - Linguini will help you find it.
