IMO, Pixar has yet to have a stinker. This movie just keeps their streak going. I'm very much looking forward to it.

This really looks like it is Pixar's best film yet. Besides the fact that it was visually gorgeous, the directing was great, and the story is really intriguing.

I can't wait until this comes out.

Agreed.. but I'm really interested in culinary arts so I may have a bias.

This doesn't look good to me at all. Could be great, though, I'll give it a chance. But I'm wondering if people would still be creaming themselves over it if it didn't have the Pixar name?

If it was the exact same movie/trailer? I would for sure.. but I'd probably need some coaxing to check it out if it had another company's name over it. Actually, I'd probably have checked it out due to Brad Bird's name.

The art is enough to make me highly anticipate it. Looking at the animation just shows me how much care is being put into the film. Plus from that 9 minute clip it looks like some interesting things are being done with the plot and characters.

I've liked CG films from other companies, I'm not strictly a Pixar guy, but Pixar is the best, and it's always been apparant by how they approach their films, they constantly reiterate the importance of the story. They haven't dissappointed me yet.

Yeah I AM a Pixar fan but even if I wasn't, well, i would think just about anyone would admit that it's looking like an outstanding movie.

I guess I've fallen from the Pixar tree. I can remember my disenchantment clearly, and the feeling of my heart breaking. The exact moment? When Mater said "Get 'er done!"

Looks really great, a very original story with stunning animation and cinemtaography. Doesn't come out here until August but I'll look forward to it.

Maybe have an option of getting your plastic rat wrapped inside the burrito

Seriously, if they actually did a promotion, I would totally go to a Taco Bell for the first time in years. I would love to see Disney get a little less stuffy and PC.

I'm not one too get too sappy over every animated animal, but that shot of Remy right at the beginning of the clip really is just too cute

If you have a TiVo, there's 9 minutes worth of scenes from this movie available in the Showcase area this week.

I agree with everything you said except the intriguing story. I'm sue there's more to it than "rat helps boy become famous chef" but that just doesn't seem like a very strong story to me, seems awful predictable to me.

I'll still see this when it comes out but I'm not terribly enthusiastic at this point. The animation looks truly stunning though.

our friend who works at Pixar says this is stunning, she has recently rewatched Monsters inc, and says the animation in Rat is so far beyond Monsters, which I personally thought was amazing, Sully's Fur was so good.

Am really looking forward to catching this.

mrs bdb has been over to pixar and seen a lot of the artwork etc, and I saw some really early scenes of it last year when we met a bunch of the animators.

Agreed. Hopefully they can bounce back with this one. Everything on it looks good so far.

To be fair, all of their movies are fairly predictable. But I don't look for some big twists and turns in a Pixar film, even though they will toss in a fun twist from time to time. I love the journey they take us on that eventually leads to an ending we all feel good about. Jaw-dropping animation, colorful characters and laugh-out-loud humor makes the predictability almost a non-issue.

Pixar has always done right by me. I'll be seeing this one for sure.

Besides, I like cooking.

Now having seen the 9 minute preview, I've gone from "m'eh" to "can't wait".
