My favorite Pixar film is a Four way tie between the Toy Story trilogy and Wall E.

The Toy Story films appealed to me because I was the type of kid who treated his toys as if they were alive. My toys got me through some rough times. They were a bright spot in an otherwise depressing and abusive childhood. Hell, even as an adult I tend to talk to toys and treat them as if they were more than chunks of plastic or plush.

I also love stories about robots and tend to identify strongly with robot characters especially when they're as well done as Wall E was. Few robot movies are better than Wall E. The only one that springs to mind that could possibly come close or match it is The Iron Giant.

I hope you'll like my picture book then.  It's about a robot rabbit in outer space.

I'm certain I will. I haven't seen too many things involving robots I don't like. Your premise sounds really cool.

Just bought the two disc Wall-E DVD at Asda today. Looking forward to giving it a re-watch as I haven't seen it since it was released in cinemas over four years ago!  wtf?

Recently I've watched Brave for the first time and I really enjoyed it. I'm so glad that we have sky Disney movie channels so that I could watch all the great Disney movies that I can and enjoying.

John Lasseter to Direct ‘Toy Story 4,’ Out in 2017

It's being written by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack which is downright odd, but frankly, this is a good thing if you ask me.

Toy Story 3 may have been the perfect ending to the story, but there's no reason why further films can't work. Hell, the short films that they've been producing since have all been good to great and I don't think they'd move ahead with this if they didn't have a really, really good idea and lots of confidence that they could pull it off. They don't need to make a new film and they wouldn't want to risk damaging the brand, so I have faith that it'll be yet another fantastic film.

I generally agree with you there, CT, though I'm much more weary of the idea... Granted, I really enjoyed the shorts - and the Halloween special, for that matter - though I think they've all been a lot easier to accept due to their reduced length and the fact that they're not "official" installments in the series. The reality that this is actually a fourth Toy Story film means officially continuing the story in a feature-length capacity, as opposed to a delightful few minutes spent checking in on the characters from time to time. And, as you said, the ending of Toy Story 3 was absolutely PERFECT.

I felt the same way when I learned Eastbound and Down was continuing (the creators only intended it to run three seasons, wrapped it up perfectly at the end of the third and then the network ultimately talked them into doing one more), and while season 4 had a lot of hilarious moments and was not bad by any means, it still felt like it had lost a bit of artistic integrity in the process. And I still preferred the ending to season 3 over season 4, though I seem to be in the minority there. hmpf

Annnyway, I probably went on too much of a tangent there, but the comparison is still obvious. And, in this case, I have far more love for Toy Story, so I'm even more nervous about the whole thing. Every Toy Story film to date has topped its predecessor, and I honestly can't imagine Pixar ever putting out something as brilliant as Toy Story 3 in this case. A fourth Toy Story film that was ultimately "really good, but still not as great as Toy Story 3" would still be somewhat of a gut punch to me. frown

Though, having said that, I've yet to be let down as far as the Toy Story series goes, so I'm still retaining my (highly cautious) optimism on the project for now.

See, I still think the first Toy Story is the best one by a mile, though I do think that the third was better than the second, so I suppose I'd be less upset if Toy Story 4 ends up being "just great" rather than a full-blown masterpiece.

I think they'd be better off making Toy Story 4 be a film that follows a new collection of toys, so as not to feel like a direct continuation of the other 3, like you say, but, then, I suppose one of the big draws to these films is the characters that we know and love already and I guess they have added a lot of new characters with the third film and the subsequent shorts, so there's not really a need for it.

It'd be nice if they did something a bit different from the "some of the toys get stuck outside and have to make their way back home" storyline that they've used for all three of the films so far, though. Hopefully they'll mix it up a bit this time, seeing as they can only really get away with this by making it feel "fresh" and somewhat disconnected from the other 3, if you ask me.

I'm glad they at least have a few original projects coming up, because it's starting to look like they're in full on sequel mode, which is a little disappointing

Their next two films are Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur - both of which are original - then they have Finding Dory and Toy Story 4 on the way, so it seems like a relatively even spread between the two, which is fine by me.

They have a Day of the Dead project in development that I'm excited about and, obviously, sequels to The Incredibles, Monsters Inc and Cars, but we're always going to be more aware of sequels that are in development than original films in development because fans of the first film tend to care about the sequel, but original films haven't had a chance to make fans yet.

I'm both shocked and excited with the announcement of Toy Story 4, but also a little apprehensive. The fact that John Lasseter is directing it makes me confident. I love the Toy Story trilogy so far, all are brilliant and I enjoyed Toy Story 3 far more than I thought I would. It turned out to better than my expectations, but naturally it gives this new instalment even more to live up to... 

It's a long way off, but it's good to know it's coming and based on their track record I have little reason to worry too much. I'm more curious than worried, curious about what this story is they've come up with and what they want to tell. It's definitely the right reason to make it rather than just doing it for the sake of it...

I haven't seen Toy Story of Terror yet or the Toy Story that Time Forgot, but from the adverts I've seen for them I really want to see them. I don't have Sky Box Office though and I'm not paying over the odds for a Blu-Ray which is 20 minutes long and costs the same amount as a full length movie. They will have to wait...

Nobody's seen the latter yet, it doesn't premiere until December. tongue

However, Toy Story of Terror was delightful, if a little formulaic. Lots of laughs to be had, and it uses its 20 minute duration well (the story definitely couldn't have been expanded to fill a larger timeslot, let's just say that).

Inside Out trailer, quite interesting. Not what I was expecting. I think I took the whole inside the body thing a bit more literally until I saw this. Pretty good though...

I thought Inside Out was pretty weak for Pixar. The jokes were really hit and miss for me and I don't know, I didn't really care about the characters that much. There's a few problems with the plot and logic, and Joy is one of the weakest protagonists we've had since Brave. I didn't hate it, but never understood the massive praise for this one.

Here's hoping for The Good Dinosaur to bring Pixar back.

Wall-E, Ratatoullie and the Incredibles are my favourites.

I liked it, but I think it's definitely one of Pixar's weaker films. Easily in the lesser half of their filmography.

I'd argue it's their most underrated movie and it's my favorite, so yes!

Inside Out was okay, but I acknowledge that I'm neither a child or a parent and it didn't hit me as hard as it meant to. It was cute.

I'd probably agree that Ratatouille is Pixar's most under-rated work. Or maybe Cars, because Cars gets a lot of active hate that it doesn't really deserve. But Ratatouille is fantastic and generally gets over-looked compared to the others.

On the flip side, I think Finding Nemo is probably their most over-rated film. Not bad by any means, but nothing special.

I agree with cyber_turnip about Cars. I think I've only seen Ratatouille once, but I remember enjoying it. I should probably get it and watch it again at some point. Also I like Finding Nemo but it's not my favourite Pixar film.

At this rate, Inside Out might become the most overrated Pixar movie for me. I didn't think of Ratatouille much, but I've only seen it once so a rewatch will be required.

I've seen only a few of Pixar's films, but am looking forward to watching Ratatouille and a couple of others.  Toy Story (at this point) has no appeal for me at all.  But I might watch it someday if I fall into the opportunity.

There was something very simple about the plot. The message is basically, sometimes in order to feel good you have to feel sad, which isn't a bad message at all but I came out of it feeling like I had just watched an extended Sesame Street episode on psychology.

On a purely emotional, personal level, I think I do, though it's very close.

If I try and be more objective about it, I think that Inside Out is the better of the two, though it's very close. The Good Dinosaur was a little bit messy in terms of storytelling.

I had too many little problems with The Good Dinosaur to really enjoy it.
  • The look and feel of the dinosaurs seemed out of place with the rest of their environment.
  • If the dinosaurs didn't go extinct how did large mammals arise? Also, given that grass and corn have had enough time to evolve, why did some dinosaurs remain essentially unchanged while others evolved into birds?
  • Did herbivore dinosaurs lose the ability to graze?
  • When/how did hominids reach North America?
  • Why does the river flow _unto_ the mountains?
and
  • What did the plot actually have to do with dinosaurs?

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