The Pixar Fanclub
Posted 08 February 2010 - 03:00 PM
This club is for fans of one of the most critically acclaimed film studios of all time. Best known for its CGI-animated feature films, Pixar has dominated the movie scene for nearly 25 years since it's foundation in Febuary of 1986, producing a variaty of critically acclaimed and family favorite films from Toy Story to Up.
This club isn't nesescarly mine, so to say, but I decided to make it after both Athena and Em made their fandom of Pixar movies known to me, yet not etheir of them have made a fanclub to express their adoration of Pixar. Not that I blame them for not doing so.
So here's the place to talk about Pixar's history, movies, vast of voice actors, or to just simply adore many of it's movies.

AWESOME!!! Rat Lady has joined!!!
I can't wait for TS3! I saw the preview when I saw the TS 3D Double Feature in September, and I'm SO excited! TS PWNS!
Wow. I haven't seen anything Toy Story related since the original. Sadly, and shameful to say, I haven't seen Toy Story 2 in it's entirety. So now, I must watch.

You are not allowed to watch Toy Story 3 until you watch Toy Story 2 from beginning to end.

AMAZING POST!!! So full of heart and conviction!
As for my favorite Pixar movie?
Toy Story - Cause back when I was in Pre-K to 3 Grade(?), my classroom and school always used to show Toy Story alot. I loved every single minute of it, from the characters, the plotline, the moral lessons behind it and just the memories it brings back to me now that I look back on it. It's just timeless.

As for my favorite, I'll have to say The Incredibles. The animation is STUPENDOUS; the lines are hilarious; and characters are UNFORGETTABLE!!! What I can't get over is how well they made the hair seem SO lifelike! I saw the "behind the scenes" feature on The Incredibles DVD and found out that it took them several months to get it right!(I mean, there's wet hair, wind-blown hair, hair underwater, and in general, hair moving naturally with the character) That's why I admire it so much! My fave character in the film has to be Violet. With her invisibility and force-field-projection, she reminds me of Libby from the N-Men!
Ironically, though, my fave line from the movie isn't from Violet; it's from Dash! Where he's falling into the jungle and slides to a halt on that vine, then he realizes he's okay, hops off, and yells, "I'm alive!! Yeee-HAH!! WOO-HOO!!!" Then he sees Syndrome's henchmen after him and gulps right afterwards, "Uh-oh!", and speeds off! It's also hilarious how he giggles when he finds out he can run on water!
Oh, Brad Bird, you never cease to amaze me!
Edit: Call or AIM me, k, Athena?? Thx!

And I most definitely agree with you about Wall-E. It's my favorite Pixar movie, and probably my favorite animated movie ever. The animation simply spectacular, the robots are adorable, and the movie conveys emotion and a very strong message--all with so little dialogue.
I mean, look at that movie! Almost all of the dialogue comes from the humans, who don't appear until at least halfway into the movie. The robots can only say their names, each others' names, and a few key words such as plant, earth, directive.
I'm constantly blown away by the Define Dancing scene, when Wall-E and Eve are flying around the Axiom and the flames at the back, twirling around...and the journey from Earth to the Axiom, when Wall-E sticks his arm out to touch the rings of Saturn and the sparkling, glowing dust flows out behind him...the pan-out at the very end before the credit reel, when all the land is suddenly covered in grass and other plants. It's just amazing how much effort was put into animating this movie. I really can't believe it sometimes.
The message about protecting the environment is great too. You don't usually see that in animated movies. But there it is! Clean up your act, or you'll all be forced to live in space and get fat.
It's really hard to choose a favorite character from Wall-E, but if I had to choose, I'd probably say either Eve or the Captain. Eve because she's trigger-happy and has anger management issues, but is still willing to discard her directive when she realizes that she fell in love with Wall-E. The Captain because once he sees a few pictures of Earth on Computer, he becomes so driven and dedicated to get the passengers aboard the Axiom back to Earth. I love the scene where Auto shows the Captain why they can't return to Earth:
"Out there is our home. Home, Auto. And it's in trouble. I can't just sit here and...and do nothing. That's all I've ever done! That's all everyone on this blasted ship has ever done: Nothing!"
"On the Axiom, we will survive."
"I don't want to survive! I wanna live!"
GAHHH Totally awesome. I also love that three second scene where Wall-E is trying to decide where to put the spork. It's so cute how confused he is. And when he finds the engagement ring, throws it aside, and is fascinated by the box.
I could talk about Wall-E forever. That movie is just so awesome.
