    The Toy Story 3 trailer has leaked, and it’s looking great!

    Up was finally released in the UK yesterday. About time: why are some (but not all) Pixar films among the only big blockbusters whose British releases still lag several months behind the US? It probably has something to do with them being timed for certain school holidays, but WALL-E was released during both the US and UK summer holidays, so why not Up too? :(

    I’m still undecided about whether I should see it in 2D or 3D – I enjoyed Coraline, but the 3D was definitely a distraction at times and the 3D specs were somewhat uncomfortable being worn over my own. I haven’t had the impression that the 3D in Up is as integral to the film as it was in Coraline and has been hyped to be in Avatar. I’ve also heard that not all UK prints have the “Partly Cloudy” short attached.

    The House Next Door blog has been running a Pixar week of essays about the company’s films. I haven’t got through all of them yet, but those I have have been well worth reading – especially this lengthy discussion.

    Toy Story 3 looks fantastic. I haven’t liked recent Pixar films hopefully this one will change that.

    #104340

    > I haven?t liked recent Pixar films

    You foolish foolish person.

    Toy Story 3 looks as good as the first two, which obviously means bloody fantastic! I’m glad they haven’t updated the toys’ looks in any way. Well, they’re probably animated better but they do look exactly the same, which was really important.

    Pixar haven’t made one bad film. A couple of average ones in Cars and A Bug’s Life but we can certainly forgive them that, especially considering both of those films look amazing (Bug’s less so these days. Revisiting that universe might be a good idea).

    Up was beautiful. Wall-E was a triumph. Ratatouille was… alright, in all honestly the only Pixar movie I haven’t enjoyed was Cars (and Cars 2 will likely be a film I pass on). The Pixar team are masters of their field, eons ahead of anyone else doing animated stuff. The only CG movie I have seen in recent years that has even come close to achieving Pixar’s level of genius was Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs.

    Toy Story 2 is a masterpiece. Nothing Pixar have done since comes close. While I wouldn’t describe any of their films as bad, I can’t say I was bowled over by Finding Nemo, Cars or Ratatouille.

    Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc, The Incredibles and Toy Story. Best of them. In that order.

    I haven’t seen Up yet but i think i’ll enjoy it. Ratatouille was boring and Wall-E is extremely overrated. Finding Nemo and Cars are great films. Toy Story and Toy Story 2 are their best closely followed by The Incredibles.

    There’s a South Bank Show episode about Pixar tonight at 10.15. I think the last one they did about animation was the one about anime a few years ago – should be a treat if it’s as good as that.

    #104359

    The doco was indeed great. John Lasseter is SO the right person to be at the Disney/Pixar helm. He doesn’t just see dollar signs, he has real passion and creativity. He sits alongside everyone who looked on in horror at all the soulless crap Disney was producing over the past decade, not to mention the other animated studios. To call him the saviour of Disney animation might not be much of an exaggeration.

    The South Bank Show on Pixar received a bizarre write up by their TV reviewer which dwelt almost entirely on the reviewers childhood fear of Disney. I thought the documentary was great, but I would like to have heard a bit more about the struggle to get CGI recognised as a medium.

    Ratatouille is wonderful – it looked like a slightly naff cutesy kids’ one from the outside, but it’s really anything but.

    WALL-E is better, though. It *almost* edges out TS2 as their masterpiece.

    Toy Story was a real masterpiece. Then, what do they go and do, blummin’ well one-up it with Toy Story 2! It still defies sense that it was originally slated as straight-to-video fare. This film alone cements Lasseter’s and Andrew Stanton’s (director of Nemo and WALL-E) genius.

    As utterly brilliant as WALL-E is it just can’t top the entertainment value and characters of Toy Story 2. I’m finally seeing Up in 3 hours and I can’t BLUMMIN’ wait!!

    Toy Story 3D was brilliant, I suspect Up 3D will be just as excellent. Disney’s 3D artists are really quite good.

    As to the short on Up, the short was on the digital print of Wall-E, so I assume it will be for Up too.

    Toy Story, TS2, The Incredibles and Wall-E – all brilliant. The TS3 trail has disappeared unfortunately :(

    The link here is John Lasseter, the man who was originally fired from Disney. Oh the irony!

    I’m really hoping there’s a better Toy Story 3 trailer still to come. I have no major concerns about the film itself, the Pixar track record is entirely too extraordinary to assume the worst, but that feels to me like a very…patchy trail.

    Some nice imagery – the VHS thing is especially nifty – and it shows some decent bits (‘Buzz is taking himself seriously again!’, ‘Andy’s grown up’) but I really don’t think it puts the true heart of the story across.

    Andy’s going to college and decides…well, we’re not sure. But the toys end up with kids who DO play with them…so they decide to escape (which feels counter to the previous flicks). To where? What’s the goal? And what’s the theme this time? If it’s about the post-play life of a toy, it seems to be mentioned and then abandoned.

    Compared to the clarity of the first two films – both in terms of narrative goal AND theme – it makes the movie seem unfocussed. Which I doubt it will be. But the trail hits too many old beats (hey, a reworking on the old ‘no time to panic’ gag!’) without really nailing what it’s going to be ABOUT.

    Well this film seems to be following the original plot of the first Toy Story, but have seemed to develop it past the original ending, so yeah, I’m intrigued to see how this one is going to work.

    I’ve just found out that my 2-disc Toy Story DVDs which I bought about a year ago, have commentaries on them, even though the “Special Features” on the back do not even mention them. Are commentaries ‘old hat’ for DVDs in the way that “Interactive Menus” are?

    I’m guessing the idea would be not to give everything away when there’s months before it’s released. We’ve got Toy Story 2 in 3D coming before the third arrives don’t forget.

    > Andy?s going to college and decides?well, we?re not sure. But the toys end up with kids who DO play with them?so they decide to escape (which feels counter to the previous flicks). To where?

    From interviews at Comic Con and what not the plot is Andy decides to give his toys to a daycare centre, where the kids [as the trailer shows] nearly destroy them being typical rough and horrible kids of this generation. So before they get ripped to shreds or a million pieces lost, they decide they’re better off just together as a group, and decide to leg it.

    > Compared to the clarity of the first two films – both in terms of narrative goal AND theme – it makes the movie seem unfocussed. Which I doubt it will be. But the trail hits too many old beats (hey, a reworking on the old ?no time to panic? gag!?) without really nailing what it?s going to be ABOUT.

    I’m sure the 3rd film will be the best of the three, and I’m sure it will close the narrative up to become a trilogy. Personally I can’t see them completely reopening the franchise unless they were within the last 10 minutes ending up in Andy 2.0’s bedroom somehow.

    Don’t forget the trailer has to both grab new audiences as well as recapture people who were young the first time around… so there’s new modern ebay gags, but old panic gags for those who’ll remember them. A bit like Dwarf I guess, trying to keep it semi on topic for this forum :P

    > So before they get ripped to shreds or a million pieces lost, they decide they?re better off just together as a group, and decide to leg it.

    Um…I know. All this is in the trailer (well, aside from Andy DECIDING to give the toys away, which is a pertinent point being omitted, but we know where they end up). But ‘they decide to leg it’ isn’t a destination. I don’t doubt for a moment that the script gives the toys a specific goal – protagonists need that, and Pixar craft beautiful screenplays – but the trailer’s not showing it.

    Of course they don’t want to blow everything in the trail – doesn’t mean the trail has to stay shallow thematically. The themes of The Dark Knight were hit incredibly well in the trailers, and yet the plot points were never blown.

    And of course the trail has to grab wide audiences – again, obviously, but the rehashed gag doesn’t feel ‘knowing’ to me, doesn’t feel like a reference. But I’m not bemoaning the gag count – though I don’t think the end joke of the trail is strong enough to BE the end joke.

    > though I don?t think the end joke of the trail is strong enough to BE the end joke.

    The joke being ‘let’s laugh at a Spanish accent’. I hope there are much better gags and that this one doesn’t go on for TOO long (even though it’s obviously gonna be over a couple of scenes at least).

    It’s likely that the toys just want to get back to Andy’s room even though he’s not there. That’s what they’ll set out to do at least, but then certain twists will happen which take them elsewhere, maybe they even end up at Andy’s college, or just Woody and Buzz somehow.

    They could end it by showing a fairly battered Buzz Lightyear being played with by a boy and we think it’s a flashback to kid Andy again but then someone shouts ‘Chris, are you in there?’ or something, and an adult Andy walks in. Cue some cheesy lines – ‘what you got there, kiddo?’ ‘Just this lame-o old spaceman I found.’ ‘”Lame-o!” I used to have a Buzz Lightyear just like this when I was your age.’ ‘Exactly, Dad. This guy’s ooooold like you! He ain’t a patch on The Inquisitor.’ (we see a huge poster on the wall) Andy looks at Buzz closely but says ‘nah, it can’t be…’ and puts him down, thinking there’s no way it could be the same Buzz figure. He’s walking out and the kid says ‘There’s this stupid cowboy too. Don’t know where he came from.’ Andy freezes, turns and Woody is there in his son’s hand(…), looking right at him. His son pulls the cord and the last line of the film is ‘reach for the sky!’ Andy smiles. Then the wardrobe opens, Sid flies out and smashes both toys to pieces before gutting Andy with a machete. The end.

    #104819

    Well it was ‘alright’ if you ask Ben… :)

    But you’re right. Ratatouille was the first Pixar flick that I wasn’t remotely fussed about when it came out. (The typical dual-movie timing of Flushed Away coming out the same year didn’t help, either.) It’s arguably the hardest sell they’ve ever has, not only because it’s about ‘rats around your food’, but because the story is about trying to satisfy the creative urge, to express yourself in a form of artistry. Which is a long way from the simplicity of being a lost toy who has to get home.

    I saw Ratatouille in cinema but I remember very little about it. And that is bad.

    My favourite’s gotta be Monsters Inc. There is so much in that one that I love. And actually remember.

    I loved both of the Toy Story ones when they first came out.

    I didn’t bother to watch The Indcredibles when it was on, and saw it only later from DVD and loved it then.

    Also, I’m the only person in the world that doesn’t care about Finding Nemo at all. or Cars.

    Wall-E was mostly excellent. But there was stuff in it that I didn’t like.

    Monsters Inc. will remain my favourite one of all time. :P

    Yeah, if you don’t like Carrey it’s so atypical of him (and his performance so amazing) that you won’t notice it’s him. And if you like him (as I do) it just fuels the “one of the best actors around” feeling.

    It’s a wonderful, wonderful film, though. I’m struggling to think of a film from the 2000s that I’d place above it.

    I’m glad to see a few others agreeing about Cars being weak.

    It’s biggest issue is the plot kinda drags, and I’ve not seen one kid sit to watch it, without getting restless half way through. Cars was aimed at the wrong audience, as it visually cries out kiddy film, but narrativly shouts out grown up film.

    And why they’re bothering with a Cars 2 sequel before Monsters Inc 2, I really don’t understand.

    #105538
    Andrew
    Participant

    There are plenty of studios who’d give their eyeteeth to be able to put together a film as good as Cars. As with Bugs, it simply suffers in comparison.

    No question, though, it’s a contradictory film. The theme is about learning to slow down…but it ends up asking the audience to get behind a final Big Race. The subject matter is, as littlesmeggeer says, more adult. (Kids also get restless in the first half of The Incredibles. Their loss.) And it’s the first Pixar universe that falls apart when thought about too long.

    Hmm, I seem to be repeating what I said at the time:

    I liked Transformers when I was 8, I like Transformers now I am 28 and I bought M.A.S.K. the other day on DVD, but I know what Ben means. I haven’t seen Cars but because it was about Cars I assumed I wouldn’t want to. Something about Cars made me ignore the fine work Pixar had produced in the past and assume the film would be a waste of my time. It’s very difficult to waste my time, my time is mostly worthless.

    Funny, I’ve heard people say the same thing about:

    – Doctor Who
    – Red Dwarf
    – comic books
    – animated films

    Come on, Ben, you can’t have a go at people for being into something perceived as a “kids thing” when the majority of us are into at least one thing that other people might perceive as being for kids as well. I’m no Transformers fan but that’s a lame way of dismissing it.

    I would love that but you just know they would fuck it up. Shia LaBeouf as Lion-O!! (actually I think someone like Andrew Garfield would be quite good). They could basically adapt the opening Exodus episodes as the film.

    One KEY element to get sorted (one that infuriates Thundercats fans the world over!) is the age-old ‘why don’t Wily-kat and Wily-kit age in hypersleep?’ They should show that ONLY Lion-O ages in hypersleep, due to some malfunction of some kind? though really it’s divine intervention of sorts. That means that it makes sense that Wily-kit and kat are still kids and yet Lion-O grows up. OR just axe that whole part of the story and have Lion-O an adult from word go, but that would suck (yes, suck).

    Tune in to sanity FM. Have you lot actually gone back and re-watched ThunderCats? It’s terrible!

    I have. It certainly has its bad points – but overall it’s a massive bag of fun. And has a wonderful atmosphere.

    I am genuinely saddened that – thanks to the He-Man and Thundercats legacy – it’s impossible now to do a non-ironic, pulse-quickening “Hero raises sward and issues magic chant” scene. Possibly drama’s greatest loss.

    Which reminds me John, we have a Thundercats t-shirt at our house – I’m assuming that it’s yours? I brought it along to DJ with me and then promptly forgot to ask/give it back along with Karl’s “Put your faith in a loud guitar” one. Not sure what could have distracted me… :oP

    Back to the conversation… Someone recently mocked me for still owning ‘kids’ books such as Roald Dahl, Enid Blyton and Alan Garner. Books that they admitted they’d read (at least some of) as a child but now had ‘grown out of’. PFFT!

    I think that is mine, yes!

    I was obviously doing a sexy strip tease and flung it somewhere.

    And yet you hid yourself out of sight when Michelle and I crashed on your couch. Next time I expect dinner and a show!

    Thundercats has perhaps the greatest opening credits sequence of all time. The rest of the show…was OK.

    Don’t know if you guys have seen that, but it’s fairly well made.

    Actually, while we’re on the subject of Thundercats. I recently read on IMDb that James Lipton, the guy who does the “Inside The Actors Studio” interviews, did the music for the entire run of Thundercats.

    I wouldn’t mind if it was one music credit, but the ENTIRE RUN, and only on Thundercats?

    Hmm… odd

    To be fair they used the same music cues constantly…

    After a little bit of rooting, I found another name which is credited to all the music. Bernard Hoffer.

    That’s awesome. At first I thought it was a bunch of fans playing dress-up, but it’s very well done.

    While Pitt is too old for Lion-O I think Vin Diesel and Hugh Jackman would be such perfect casting for Panthro and Tigra. But come on, like Jackman would do it after Wolverine.

    Terry O’Quinn for Panthro.

    New trailer. And still no sign that the plot is anything more than “The Toys race to be reunited with Andy”. Sigh.

    I laughed a lot during that. Don’t see Pixar making a bad film at this point.

    And that’s any less-complex than ‘the Toys set out to rescue Woody’ how? Because, on the face of it, that’s all Toy Story 2 is. Up is ‘an old guy ties balloons to his house, oh and there’s a kid’. If you look at it in that way they’re always gonna sound pretty naff, and yet we know how brilliant Toy Story 2 and Up are.

    Even though it’s not Lasseter directing and Andrew Stanton writing I think we can still trust Pixar with this. There’s no way either of them completely stayed away from this project anyway. Both of them were obviously just too busy to take it on fully.

    I love that Ken is a new main character. For some reason it’s bloody hilarious!

    Loads of Easter eggs in the trailer:

    I like the wooden block Lightning McQueen toy. But best of all: Totoro!
