Apparently they are developing a remake of Big Trouble In Little China and The Rock is in talks to star... I'm not very positive about this so far.

Random observation, but I've come to realize I really like those random dingy club scenes from 80s movies. I hated them most of my life, but the last three or four I've seen, I've started to realize they were favorite parts of their respective films, my absolute favorite being the one from the original Fright Night.

Anyone seen Inside Out yet? Reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, it's apparently Pixar's best since Wall-E. Did they get their groove back? I sure hope so.

It's my favorite Pixar film.

But I don't know, I've always been partial to Pete Doctor. Monsters and Up were my previous two favorites.

Pixar doesn't do much for me. Their greatest efforts still pale in comparison to even the second-tier Ghibli stuff.

The third act of Up was near-worthless.

Favorites for me are Ratatouille and Toy Story 2.

Wall-E and Toy Story 1 establish the top tier. Those are great fucking movies, I don't give a shit how good Ghibli is in comparison.

Then Ratatouille, Finding Nemo and The Incredibles are rock solid. Up is a mess, true. Funny, sad, I love it, but not their best.

I fucking love Pixar. Toy Story 3 the king for me. Cars about the only one I don't like. Seeing Inside Out on thurs.

They're great films, but the artistry of the animation doesn't do much for me, particularly the character work.

I tend not to be impressed by CGI animation for the most part.

I can absolutely agree with this, which is why Wall-E is visually their finest hour IMO. Human CGI character models are usually terrible and that isn't an issue for much of the film.

It does, however, hold back The Incredibles somewhat. I think that's one of their finest scripts and there are some adventurous environments to enjoy, but the character models are blah.

I like Pixar's look a lot of the time, but I hate their people animation. Thus, in all likelihood, why I don't really like some of the usual suspects like Ratatouille (which I hate), Incredibles (which I do still love the acting and story of) and Up (but that one's less for the animation, and more for the mess of the ending). They tried something different in Up, the character models are a lot more cartoonish and I think they work a lot better.

I love Pixar, and Inside Out is the first movie of theirs I've been truly excited for since Wall-E, but I don't get that same rush I once did whenever I heard they had something new coming. Too many disappointments and Disney-esque cash grabs in a row have left me a little underwhelmed.
