The Incredibles is perhaps the best CGI movie.  The 2 disc DVD is set to come out in March or April.

Disney is releasing another CGI movie.  Chicken Little, based off the popular kid's story.

I can't wait to get The Incredibles DVD, it's out here March 18th. Pixar always do awesome jobs with their DVD's, and this should be no different...

Out of all them the Toy Story movies are the best.  Dreamworks are a bunch of Rip-off all they do is rip off Pixers animation Ideas


Has anyone else seen that Anime CGI movie called "Alice"

The Incredibles was nominated for an Oscar for best screenplay of the year and it won for best Animated Film of 2004.  Take that Shrek 2.

I love the DVD and with a run time of 115 mins, it is longer CGI movie to date.

The Incredibles is what CGI movies should be.

It just so happens you ressurected this thread just after The Incredibles is out on DVD. My prediction earlier was correct, excellent transfer, awesome menu's, great extras, and even a nice shiney slipcase. Another cloolsome job from Pixar all round!...

The Incredibles, Toy Story, Finding Nemo, and Shrek are the best CGI movies. Shark Tale was pretty much a Nemo rip, and Shrek 2 was too hyped. Notice anything about that list? Yes, they're all Disney/Pixar, except for Shrek. I hope Disney can patch up with Pixar so they can make more movies past Cars. And The Incredibles was incredible.

Yeah, it's amazing how Pixar manage to raise the bar with every subsequent release. As for  Disney patching up with them, why? Disney don't really have anything to do with the movies. They just handle the distribution and DVD releases, the latter via their home video company Buena Vista.

Of course Buena Vista have done an incredible job with the DVDs (The Incredibles DVD transfer is top-notch reference quality), but given the digital source, I don't think Sony, Warner or Fox couldn't have done the same.

With their continuing success, Pixar are free to pick and choose who is to distribute their future movies. Who knows, now that Eisner has been replaced as Disney CEO, maybe they'll even get back together with Disney.

Disney may not do anything, but they own the rights to the characters.  Pixar can't do an Incredibles sequel, without Disney's permission.

Disney is planning to do Toy Story 3, without the help of Pixar.

That's one of the reasons I hope Disney do patch up with Pixar. Disney's Feature Animation department haven't turned out anything on a Pixar level since 1994 (The Lion King), in my opinion. I don't have high hopes for their new CGI department, so I'd much rather see Pixar do a Toy Story 3 (and the sequels to the other movies, for that matter).

I suspect that would probably be a requirement in any new contract between the two - instead of Disney owning the characters as they do now, Pixar would retain the rights (as well as the cut in the fee).

Quite frankly, Pixar is in an excellent negotiating position, whereas Disney is in serious trouble. If they'd just swallow their pride and realise that the only successful department at the moment (save their live-action film division, which hasn't been doing too bad what with PotC and National Treasure) is Pixar (OK, so it's not strictly a department per se).

What I'm worried about is that Disney will abuse the prestige they've gained from the agreement to trick people into thinking their own CGI stuff is Pixar's, which in my mind is just underhanded.

Just look at the Pixar/Disney movies, most people will say they're Disney movies if you ask them who made them, even though Disney essentially only picked up half the bill and distributed them. It's the same with a lot of traditional animation; if you ask somebody to list Disney movies, they'll most likely throw in a couple of Don Bluth movies by accident.

Of course, this is probably exactly what Disney wants; to threaten Pixar with abuse of their reputation and thus use this as a bargaining chip at the negotiating table.

Last I heard, Pixar were waiting for the new Disney CEO to be announced before looking for a new partner. I suspect Disney are waiting to see how their in-house CGI, Chicken Little, does in the autumn/fall  tongue to see if they can leverage that.

I've gotta say that the thought of Disney going it alone on a Toy Story 3 scares me. They're gonna kill and rape it...

On the other hand, although I don't like to judge, that next Pixar film called 'Cars' doesn't look much better to me either. I really don't dig the trailer I've seen, it doesn't appeal to me really. I think it could be Pixars first "average" movie. I won't say "poor" because I know it won't be crap, I just don't think it'll apeal to me, and that makes me think it might not appeal to as many other people either (I'm thinking the adults who enjoyed The Incredibles...)

Yeah, I have my doubts about "Cars", too. But keep in mind we haven't really had much information about the movie.

Pixar's winning streak has to end sometime, whether that's now or in 100 years time. It would be really unfortunate for it to happen with Cars, as that would dent their bargaining stance with Disney.

By the way, is it just me, or has "A Bug's Life" been relegated already as Pixar's "Least Excellent" movie? It's the only one I don't have on VHS or DVD, but I think it was actually pretty good (I certainly enjoyed it more than "Monsters, Inc." but that's probably because I find Billy Crystal's voice annoying  tongue).

I love A Bugs Life, I've got it on DVD. The only Pixar movie I don't own on DVD is Finding Nemo...

I would consider A Bug's Life as on of the "not as excellent" movies. Toy Story 2 would also fall here, because it wasn't as good as the original, but I'm not saying either were bad, but just not the best.

Walt Disney Co. is in serious talks about an acquisition of Pixar Animation Studios, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter.

The newspaper report said terms under discussion would have Disney pay a small premium to Pixar's current stock market value of $6.7 billion.

Toy Story was the first full length CGI film. Actually, just look at a timeline of CGI.

Hoodwinked looks terrible. Just another example of how Hollywood thinks that because it's CGI it will be good. I want some more drawn animation movies. CGI is getting boring.

Well in sucks that Disney has decided to give up on Traditional Animated movies.  Their last one was "Home of the Range". Disney did Valiant, Chicken Little and they plan to do Toy Story 3 without Pixar.  They are making CGI movies for good.

Frankly, Cars Looks like it'll be the first animated movie made by the company I don't want to see.... Chicken Little was a little blah and when to fast for my tast, like Simpsons episodes do nowdays... In a way, I agree with i_c_weiner on this subject, but in any case they make a sequel to Robots, I'll be there. Blue Sky productions actually surpassed the CGI Disney/Pixar did, for the fact they did " the most complicated CGI scene ever made" in March of '05. The Crosstown Express is the scene's title, and I must say, " However the hell they did it, it's great" I knew there'd be a day when I saw Toy Story 3, and it'd be too soon.


As for Hoodwinked, it sucks out loud. The story was generic enough without them CGI-ing it. The animations are terrible. note how Ridinghood's eyes kinda look crappy on the commercials and does that weird kinda flick like a robot's eyes. (It's hard to explain without you seeing it) Drawn animation movies need to come back, but I'm not saying I'm against some new CGI...It's just getting too....comoon nowdays.. :hpmf:


I forgot all about Valiant. I didn't see that either. As much as I like Ewan McGregor and his phenominal Star Wars and Robots roles, no matter how good he was, it was a rip off, in a way of Robots. Think about it. The bird wanted to get out and see the world, make something of himself, as did Rodney... *cough* typical generic ripoff *cough*  wink

Here's a few CGI films for you.

The Ant Bully
(I've had enough of Ants)

Open Season
(Ice age style, not to fussed on)

Monster House
(Dodgy animation, characters are to wooden and charaters look sucky)

Over the hedge
(more cute furry animals, where's my gun. Plus side though, Wlliam shatner as possum.)

Ice age 2
(didn't care for the first)

Disney's, "The Wild"
(can anybody say [cough]RIPOFF[/cough]. Madagascar wannabie)

Pixar's, Ratatouille (2007) Pre production
(Plot Outline: The story is of a rat named Ratatouille who lives in a upmarket Parisian restaurant run by an eccentric chef. Brad Garret as the Chef).

American Dog(2006 or 2007) - Disney
(haven't heard much about)

Meet The Robbinsons (2007) - Disney
(haven't heard much about)

Rapunzel Unbraided (2008) - Disney
(haven't heard much about)

Happy Dance. - Warner Brothers
(Happy Feet" is set deep in Antarctica. Into the land of Emperor Penguins, where each needs a heart song to attract a soul mate, a penguin is born who cannot sing. Our hero Mumble, son of Memphis and Norma Jean, is the worst singer in the world...however, as it happens, he is a brilliant tap dancer!)

Alot of them sound like flops to me.

Ratatouille sounds like a Lady and the Tramp movie ripoff along with Olvier and Company mixed in.. Meet the Robinsons is about a boy meeting a guy from the future. I can't remember details, but I doubt I see any of the upcoming movies.

To be honest, most movies are flops nowdays, because all the good ideas are taken... the only movie I'm halfway looking forward to is the book-based Eragon movie, but it'll probably be like Harry Potter where they stray too far, but I hope not... I still like the Harry Potter movies, don't get me wrong.

Eh it's just revenge from Dreamworks ripping off Finding Nemo. Although I thought Shark Tale was great. Oh and I just remembered the Antz/A Bugs Life contraversy. Disney one that one. But between Madagascar and The Wild, I'm gonna go with Dreamworks after watching that trailer. (A little bit of Finding Nemo in there.)

I'm surprised to learn that William Shatner provdies voices for both The Wild and
Over the Hedge.  Two rival companies were able to hire the same actor for their CGI film.

CGI is getting boring. I'm happy that Pixar was bought by Disney, because it'll help Disney's Animation department in the long run. Having Pixar talent there will help the studio. I can't wait for their work after Cars, which sounds pretty good.

'Cars' is supposed to be very good, and 'Finding Nemo' is one of my favorite movies. 'Shrek 2' is pretty good too. I think one of the reasons 'Shrek' and 'Shrek 2' were so good was because they didn't rip it off Disney.

@DogDoo8: You forgot to include 'Toy Story III'.

"Cars" sounded and looked really bad to me, but from the few reviews that have come in on Rotten Tomatoes it looks like it actually rocks anyway.  Leave it to Pixar to beat the odds.  I hope they do another movie with humans (ala Incredibles) soon though.  I'm tired of animals and inanimate objects that talk.

The only CGI movies I see anymore are Pixar.  The rest are so bad.

Last CGI movie I saw was "chickin little" but only because a friends little nephew was watching it and we had nothing better to do.

@Xanfor
The only reason I didn't post TS3 was at that time the Disney/Pixar deal was going down and disney put it on hold untill it was sorted out.

P.S. Just saw a couple of days ago a kind of test/teaser trailer for Pixar's, Ratatouille (2007 RD).
Its in french, don't know why. Just google it if your interested.
