The Top Movies by Pixar

by Gunther Heinrich, 22 May 2011 in Reviews

Pixar is hailed as the one studio that moves animation to new boundaries. Not only on a technological level but also and foremost on a storytelling level. Where other studios pat themselves on their shoulders for shoving yet again exactly the same message of friendship and family down our throat with slight variations in the plot and animal characters (sparkled with yet another 40,000 pop culture references I might add), Pixar goes beyond that.

But how good are the various Pixar movies really? Sure, they beat the crap out of almost every other 3D animated movie out there but that’s telling nothing in terms of their true quality. So here is yet another list of the Top Pixar Movies in pure madmind style.

I’m sure this list might cause some disagreement and I’m fully prepared for it. So which Pixar movies are your favorites and how would you order them? Let the discussion begin…

Ten “Plot Holes” and Errors in Wall-E

If you don’t find an error in a movie you simply didn’t watch it.

Over the years of movie going this is one of the things I concluded. In most cases there is always an error in a movie. And if you didn’t spot anything you simply paid no attention to what’s going on.

WALL E for me is such an example in both ways. For one, when I watched it the first time I simply didn’t spot all the small and bigger errors in this wonderful tale. I simply loved every bit of it. Now that I finally had the time to watch it again on DVD I’m wondering if my brain was working at all during the first time.

So after the movie finished I started thinking. Are there any errors or plot holes? The result I came up with is the following list of ten “plot holes” and errors in WALL E…

God dammit, Pixar!

Why did you have to produce WALL•E? And why did you have to deliver such a wonderful result? And why did you have to release this movie just when I am about to create my own short movie about a small robot trying to fulfill its dreams?

Why???? Dammit!

WALL E could become awesome

Today I finally, finally watched all teaser trailers for Pixars upcoming 3D movie called WALL E. Ok, who am I telling this as you all have watched it already. I know, I am a little bit behind. But this is no news to me.

Back to topic: judging by the first two teaser trailers released so far I certainly start to believe this movie could become Pixars best movie to date. The ideas shown in those two short “movies” are remarkable. The repairing of the Pixar Logo by Wall E. The fun stuff he does all the day. The hillarious and upbeat music which wonderfully contradicts the wasteland atmosphere we see. And the very robotic voice at the end.

The guys at Pixar certainly did their job.

The only small letdown on
