A Quick Tip by woopak_the_thrill

Re-watched this when I got the bluray. Never fails to engage me once I get into the film's first act. I have a weakness for food, cooking and I have to admit I just love the message in this film. Truly engaging, funny, sometimes quirky but it is an animated film with a heart.

Still my favorite Pixar movie to date! (even edging out THE INCREDIBLES)

Perhaps Pixar's Finest Work To Date
   I might as well come right out with it:  Any attempts to discount Pixar’s absolute mastery of the craft of computer animated features are absolutely futile from this critic from this moment forward.  Until now I’ve been pretty consistent in giving their ballyhooed works 4-star ratings due to the sheer cleverness of their plots and the attention to detail of their visual prowess (sometimes even tainted in protest by Disney’s habit of over-promoting) but 2007’s …

RATATOUILLE is a Pixar picture. That's all that one needs to know. However, if you want some details about the film and some other (though highly unnecessary) reasons to watch the movie, keep reading.    RATATOUILLE is a story about a French country bumpkin, named Remy (Patton Oswalt) who discovers that he not only has a nose and taste for fine food, but that he can cook great meals as well. The only problem is that Remy is a rat. Most people don't even like rats and since they …

About this movie

Wiki

With astounding animation, inspirational messages, and endearing characters, Pixar Animation Studios (THE INCREDIBLES, CARS) and Walt Disney Pictures have whipped up something special with RATATOUILLE. A rat named Remy (Patton Oswalt) lives in Paris with a dream (and the talent) to be a chef. Opting to raid the kitchens of Paris rather than the garbage cans and sewers of the city with his family, Remy is inspired by the philosophy of one of the city?s most legendary chefs, the late Gusteau (Brad Garrett). One night, Remy can?t resist practicing his skill in Gusteau?s restaurant. While his guard is down, Remy is discovered by a klutzy young man, Linguini (Lou Romano), who cleans the kitchen. Together Remi and Linguini become a culinary duo, with Remy playing puppeteer by concealing himself under Linguini?s chef?s hat. Remy pulls Linguini's hair to direct his hands, helping to bring Remy?s creations to life. Soon Gusteau?s restaurant becomes the talk of the town--but would it still be the toast of Paris if...

One key point: if you can get over the natural gag reflex of seeing hundreds of rodents swarming over a restaurant kitchen, you will be free to enjoy the glory ofRatatouille, a delectable Pixar hit. Our hero is Remy, a French rat (voiced by Patton Oswalt) with a cultivated palate, who rises from his humble beginnings to become head chef at a Paris restaurant. How this happens is the stuff of Pixar magic, that ineffable blend of headlong comedy, seamless technology, ...
