Yes, and the last animated movie from Disney, Home on the Range, had plenty of CGI in the backgrounds and stuff. Cars is pretty much gonna be my last CGI movie to see. Over The Hdge has been advertised (at least in my area) far too much and I just want to shoot the TV and the company for it.

Its in french, don't know why. Just google it if your interested.

Hmm a movie about a rat who lives in a restaurant. I'd rather see Flushed Away. I'm kind of sick of Disney and Dreamworks producing movies that are the same.

Finding Nemo vs. Shark Tale (I finally got to watch most of FN, I liked it)
Ants vs. A Bug's Life (Disney's was better)
Madagascar vs. The Wild (Madagascar. No competion)

Why is it so hard for one of them to come up with a creative idea and the other not steal it?!   confused It's so annoying.

I don't know, but if they are competing, you know they'll make a ripoff of Cars and it be some other object like airplanes coming from Dreamworks...  roll eyes When will the killing end?

Perhaps they want DreamWorks to rip it off, so this way DreamWorks's one will be so bad they won't be able to make any more.  wink

Naa, I know that can't happen.

I saw cars, I really enjoyed it.  I thought it did a good job of saticfying my high pixar standards.  also they have a little sequense during the credits that had me in stitches.  Checkout the movie review thread, I wrote some more about the movie there.

It was quite a great movie classic. It teaches values we all [some of us I'm sure, regretably] want to see in ourselves and our family. It shows people can change in environments to adapt, for better or worse. Awesome film, folks, especially for it being "G" rated. I swear I heard the word "hell" and some other things I didn't think were "G" but, hell, if they got away with it, that's great. It's been years since they had anything G that didn't suck. But enough from me...

CGI is just more practical. just wait until 3d becomes as fimilar, easy to use and as common as flash.   hopefully they wont be as shitty story-wise as most flash movies are. It's been evolving so rapidly though, just wait, you'll see cgi everywhere.  of course by then VR will be all the rage.

Oh yeah, 3D's coming back too. First it'll be Superman Returns 3D, then Star Wars 3D, then it'll be Indiana Jones 3D, and then finally Paul Shore's Next Big Movie 3D. It's a slippery slope!

Actually, George Lucas was apparently planning to release all the Star Wars movies in 3D....I don't know if that's still on, though.

Xanfor: When we speak of the Prequel Trilogy, 3D is CGI.

The first of the Star Wars 3D will be A New Hope next year-ish.

Wikipedia lists Nightmare Before Christmas 3D's release date as October 20, 2006, just in time for Halloween. Sounds pretty cool.

Well, no, not really.  A lot of the effects are obviously CGI, but there are still some practical effects and actual filmed actors, and some of that will presumably be presented in 3D.  Plus, we're talking about them 3D-izing what's already there, which isn't CGI in and of itself.  They're not adding to the effects, though I wouldn't be surprised if Lucas tinkers with all six of them again.

The Lost Scene from 'Shrek'

Lord Farquaad: Mirror, mirror, on the wall, is this not the most perfect kingdom of them all?
Mirror: Indeed. In fact, it is quite revolutionary. For example, look behind you. This society is still in the medevial stage of it's development, and yet for some reason has managed to invent the Teflon-coated non-stick baking pan.

With the Ant Bully and Monster House being popular movies at the box office, it makes me think that someday every movie will be done in CGI.  I don't know it that's a good or bad thing.

I think that the current generations will still like live action alot but the latest generation is going to think the hand drawn movies look crappy. Personnally I think that hand drawn is going to be a lost art.

Some movies, like Toy Story and Shrek, were good and had a reason to be in CGI. Monster House could've been life action with things like the house computer generated. Ant Bully probally could've been hand drawn. I miss the days of good hand drawn animated movies. I miss the days of good CGI movies and not a huge amount of crappy ones that ruin the point of CGI.

Some movies, like Spider-Man 3, are live action, but need computer generation to pull off some stuff, but would look cheesy if they were fully CGI.

It would've been nearly impossible to do the Spider Man movies with CGI at the quality they are at. A good combination of Live, CGI, and puppetry seems to work well.

Funny you should mention that.  My friend told me that he heard Marvel thought about doing a Captain America movie entirely in CGI.  My friend said that would be a good idea if Marevl wanted to do a Captain America as long as they did it well.

The next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie will be entirely in CGI.

Cars was one of the best movies I think I have ever seen, and the reflections and smoke effects completely took my breath away. Pixar's attention to detail is amazing.

Yeah I agree THJ, They did an amazing job on that.  I recently got into the field of rendering 3d cars for catalogs and it really depend my appreciation for what they did.  It's so hard to balance the lighting, environment and reflections.  They really nailed their shaders.

Yeah, I was a bit suprised by that myself.  It should be good though.  But as good as the previous TMNT movies... hah, maybe if it features a CGI Vanilla Ice.

I loved Cars but I'd put on the lower echelon of Pixar movies along with A Bugs Life. My favourite thing about it was the One Man Band short.

I saw the ned TMNT trailer and I plan on seeing that movie.  Disney has two new movies coming, Meet The Robinsons and Ratatouille (writed and directed by Incredibles creator Brad Bird).

First I've seen of this topic.  I'd say The Incredibles is probably my favorite CGI movie.  Only thing I didn't like about it was the god-awful short that preceded it.  Everyone raves about how great Cars looks.  Nobody ever seems to talk about the story.  I see Jimmy Neutron on the list.  That was a much better TV series than it was a movie.  In fact, I'd say that the made for TV movie, "Win, Lose and Kaboom" was much more entertaining than the original theatrical movie.

I saw TMNT and it was good.  I'll tell more on the TMNT thread.  Does anyone plan to see Meet The Robinsons?  I saw the trailer and it looks kind of corny with bad future puns.

I love Wall-E, though Up is too soon to determine.  Pixar hasn't had a flop yet.  I saw the trailer for the Astro Boy movie

This thread seems very similar to the Pixar one, but I guess you can talk about more than just Pixar CGI movies here, looking forward to Toy Story 3.

Speaking as someone who did (and still does) like Cars, I got the impression that I was in a smallish minority in that regard. Many reviewers weren't particularly taken with it and most of the ones I read felt it didn't compare well with other Pixar movies.

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

'Monsters' was awesome, one of their best. 'Cars' was meh.

Personally, I'd rank Pixar's efforts to date as such:

1. WALL-E
2. The Incredibles
3. Monsters Inc.
4. Ratatouille
5. Toy Story
6. Finding Nemo
7. Toy Story 2
8. Cars
9. A Bug's Life

All relative though. They still haven't made a bad film.

I liked Cars too.  I've not seen Ratatouille.  I love Wall-E too, it's almost perfect.  So I'd agreed with the top 3 in Bens list.
