With some of Pixar's latest releases IE Cars 2, MU, and Brave I am going to have to say I was a bit disappointed in pixar. On the other hand I did enjoy the DreamWork releases lately

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

This is tough for me easy for my kid. As a parent of a 2 year old some of the Pixar flicks get heavy rotation and some of the Disney stuff gets ejected. Barely any Dreamworks gets her facetime. I, myself, like several of their movies.

Her favorite Pixar movies are Nemo, Monsters Inc, and Brave. Only recently has she expressed interest in Up (once the bird showed up). On the Disney side Tangled is top choice. We round out the rest with several Ghibli films.

Your little girl has good taste, I think. I love Nemo and Monsters Inc. In fact, I think both are classics. See if you can convince her to watch Up too. I loved it and have seen it several times. I recently watched Brave, which my daughter had bought on BD, and was surprised how much I liked it. It's not in a class with the other three (What is?) but it's an excellent film nevertheless.

I voted Pixar simply out of love for Ratatouille, Walle, UP and the Incredibles. The tide has turned the last few years though where I have enjoyed HTTYD, Monsters Vs Aliens, Megamind, Kunfu Panda and even Rise of the Gaurdians and Puss N Boots over Cars 2, TS3, Brave, Monsters 2. Granted, this years Turbo and The Croods were not great for me though my 8 year old enjoyed them. It is not the slam dunk it was a few years ago when Toy Story 3 won the animated academy award over the much more deserving HTTYD merely on Pixar reputation over Dreamworks at that time.

It's all good though and HOPEFULLY a little competition will motivate Pixar to get back to creating truly wonderful movies. Although both companies were blown away by Illumination Entertainment's Despicable Me 2 this year that out did Monsters Inc by almost 100 million at domestic box office. Box office is not everything, but that is a substantial number further showing Pixar is not as dominant as they once were.

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

Directed by Zach Snyder but the real star, imo, was the animation design people, Animal Logic, based out of Australia. Same company that did Happy Feet visuals.

RANGO visuals kind of reminded of your owl movie, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, but were done by a different company. ILM's first full length animation feature and were amazing visuals, like Ga-hoole's. Stupid name and did not do well at the box office. Is interesting, to me anyways smile.gif, the amount of kid's, big budget movies that have really died at the box office lately. Ga'hoole, Rise of the Guardians, Mars needs Mom's etc. But when you watch them at home with your kids, they are pretty fun. My 8 year old LOVED rise of the Guardians.

That's it. I thought it was pretty cool.

It's almost like those movies are made by a machine and just getting cranked out.
