Posts Tagged ‘Pixar’

 

This summer was an enormous superhero release time with big players like The Avengers and Dark Knight Rises.  Hitfix decided to compile the best of the best in gallery form.  You’ll get your traditional stuff like The Dark Knight and Incredibles, but they leave out some of my favorites and include even one I didn’t recognize.  Rocketeer?  Never heard of ya’.

EDIT**: Found the artist, check out Votric’s Deviant Art Page!

This picture of the Parr family in the future is both awesome and adorable.  How about awesomely adorable.  The Incredibles is probably one of my favorite Pixar movies.  Here we have Bob and Helen, aged and still very in love, but what’s even cooler is how their kids have grown.  Violet seems to have adapted her father’s older costume, Dash seems to have added a little Frozone flair, and then Jack-Jack went traditional.  I want an entire back story to this: Their names, arch nemeses, and how their powers have changed.  And more Frozone.  I’d like to see Frozone’s family as well…Pixar, will you please make Incredibles 2 with this as your inspiration?

Taking Nemo

There’s something soothing about combining the innocence and general happiness of Disney movies and mixing them up with gritty and rather violent movies.  We’ve featured Game of Thrones, Lion King, among many others here before that all feature iconic and lovable Disney characters being lip dubbed to saying brutal and unforgiving things.  Well we’ve got another here that features a much more similar plot line to it’s graphic counterpart.  Taking Nemo features Finding Nemo and Taken in a mixed up trailer.  It’s very fitting considering the similar plots of having children taken away from fathers.  The trailer’s pretty badass and having the contrast of Marlin turning from hesitant father to Neeson-badassery is all around awesome.

Wall-E and Eve have a Robotic Baby

 

Dawwwwwww, film’s cutest robot couple went and had themselves a baby.  The adorable combination of both rusted and futuristic made for lovable looking baby.  And look he even has a name, E-ric, or probably ‘Eric’.  Unfortunately it doesn’t seem as though Eric will be able to fly, but maybe he’ll learn from his father and make use of the fire extinguisher in space.  I love an idea like this.  The image said it was designed by Artua, but I tried to navigate their site and couldn’t come up with the exact location.  But they do their own fair share of cool stuff.  Be sure to check it out.

This is a really cool link to Tecca who have compiled 10 awesome recut trailers to movies.  We’re not just talking about flipping a few words around or even a simple mash up here or there, these re-cuts completely change the genre.  Take for example, the Incredibles trailer I posted above, this trailer highlights the death of Dash and the effect it has had on the family.  The trailer is absolutely chilling and plays a horror movie so well that I would totally watch that movie.  “Do you know where he is?”

Seriously, check out that trailer and the rest of them at Tecca.  Don’t believe me?  The first one is turning the Shining into a family film.  Crazy right?

It’s hard not loving Pixar movies.  You’d have to be soulless to not absolutely fall in love with the creative and intriguing characters Pixar comes up with.  Moviefone has done the ambitious ranking of nearly all the Pixar characters throughout the years.  With nearly 118 contestants, it was a neat gallery going through and remembering all the crazy characters and the awesome voices that portrayed them.  I’ve included the link starting from number 1, because in all honesty, who wants to scroll through 118 pictures.  Guess who got the number one spot before you hit the link!

Sean Izaakse drew this super badass rendition of Toy Story heroes and it got made into a legitimate toy!  These toys are what realistic space marines and hardened cowboys are supposed to look like, but having the skins of the unforgettable duo, Woody and Buzz,makes it all that much better.  Now I gotta ask, where is Jessie as the sexy femme fatale?  See the original rendition below.

Cracked has once again debunked several gaping questions in lovable kids movies.  Yes the Iron Giant was sent to Earth to destroy the planet, but when his iron heart was thawed and Earth was saved, what does that mean for his other Iron Giant friends who were sent to other planets to destroy them?  Will they all come back to Earth and finish the jobs themselves?  In Monster’s Inc.  Boo was gone from her bedroom for an incredibly long time.  Those poor parents who couldn’t find their kid, and when their kid came back and she began blabbering about kittys and Mike Wizowskis, they might have put poor Boo on drugs to calm her hyperactive and likely scarred for life mind….Read more about what Cracked has to say about these movies and more below.

Disturbing Questions From Kids Movies

It would be an interesting debate to see who was first.  Pixar’s Carl from Up or this old guy.  One clearly influenced the other.  Pixar is usually super original, so I like to think this old guy emulated Carl.  That would mean either he has super awesome grandkids that told him this and they dressed him….Or this old guy is super alone and he dresses like children’s movie characters to make kid friends….One is a much darker story line than the other.

Old Rebels

James Hance has a very large collection of art.  He loves combining two different universes.  Here we have an obvious combinations of George Lucas’s Star Wars and Pixar’s Up.  Pixar’s most adorable and heart breaking couple are parallel to the lovable couple of Leia and Solo.  I don’t think Carl is as much of a scoundrel as Han is, but maybe Leia softened him to be like him in their golden years.  James Hance also has some very cool mixes with Han and Chewie with Pooh and Christopher.  Be sure to check out his other art as hit website.

Avengers have officially kicked off the big summer movie bonanza.  There’s a lot of great stuff coming out this summer, and a lot of questions to go with it.  Can The Dark Knight Rises truly surprise us?  What’s the surprise bomb of the summer [this one might be already answered: looking at you Battleship]?  Regardless, Hit Flix has compiled some interesting questions such as those and compiled opinions on them.  Click the link below.

This is a really cool mashup of a very serious movie and one of the kiddiest movies out there.  The Toy Shining combines Pixar’s Toy Story and Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.  Artist Kyle Lambert came up with this visionary combination.  I’ve picked some of my favorites here.  Go visit the rest at Huffington Post.

Some Easter eggs will never be discovered unless revealed by Director Commentary or a film psychopath systematically breaks down every scene he watches and compiles the picture above which features the infamous YO Pizza Planet Truck from the first Toy Story in near every Pixar movie.  Cracked [of course] has compiled 6 other amazing Easter Eggs that will seriously blow your mind out of your face if you’re not prepared.

As much as I would love to credit an artist, I’m compelled to say that this was created from the vast depth of what is ‘Anon’.  Regardless of who made it [definitely not me], it’s hilarious how coincidental this is.  There are definite lines between the Dreamworks creative team and the Pixar creative team.  While both have their merits, it’s clear which one has a more distinct style when it comes to story.  And the whole animal giving the raised eyebrow treatment doesn’t really help their cause.  Maybe that’s why Pixar outnumbers Dreamworks Animation in Best Animated Picture by like kajillion to one.  Somebody dig up the actual number, I think it’d be fairly interesting.

Was Snow White’s first instinct to clean the house sexist?  Moviefone has compiled a list of children’s movies that caught flak for possibly containing some insensitive humor.  Obesity, anti-oil, and hidden sex images are mentioned, but it’s up to you to believe if the company meant to add them.  I personally like to think so because I like the idea of movie writers and producers snickering in their rooms as they get Snow White residuals from 1950.

Pixar has a knack for creating some of the most lovable animated characters to ever hit the screen.  They’ve done more than 10 movies where each of them has at least 2 or 3 likable/lovable characters.  So I’ve made a list of my 5 favorites below.

It’s difficult how to process this.  This could easily be another fantastic Pixar hit.  Or it could possibly be leaning on the lines of How to Train Your Dragon that was made by Dreamworks Animation a couple of years ago.  It was almost too eerily similar.  Just trade in scrawny figure for girl and it almost looks and sounds like the same movie.  But Pixar usually doesn’t let us down and at least I can say the visuals look great.

The Banana Tree may be gone, but I’ll still be linking left and right to today’s top stories.  We’ve recently received word that there are three sequels in the making to relatively successful films: Dumb and Dumber, Zoolander, and The Incredibles.

I have mixed reactions to all three.  Dumb and Dumber and Zoolander are comedic treasures in their own right and any sequel might tarnish that.  As for The Incredibles, after the last stint with Cars 2, I’m not fully on board with ‘make a Pixar sequel that isn’t Toy Story’ deal.  I’d just rather have something brand new.  But we’ll see how Monster Academy peers out.

My first post ever to this site was the ranking of Pixar throughout the years.  The first Cars was in last place, with the main points suggesting a lack in innovation or imagination, despite having top notch animation.  So when I watched Cars 2, the first sequel to a Pixar movie after the beloved Toy Story franchise, I was ultimately disappointed for the same general reasons.  And even though I used the word disappointment, I can’t say in itself that Cars 2 was a bad movie, because in all reality it wasn’t bad for an animated movie.  In all honesty, it quite frankly beats most other animated movies in terms of story and animation itself.  For a Pixar movie however, it lacks the magic and storytelling that usually transcends me to a new world where I never want to let go.

Pixar is the front runner for promising animated films of this generation.  Classic Disney was the front runner for giving us the best animation of the 1900s.  It seems Disney and its acquisitions have always given us the most memorable animated movies that we watched when we were children and will recommend our children to watch as we grow older.  So finding a great animated feature that doesn’t have the production title Disney, is indeed a rare gem.  I tried to find as much range as possible.  Please remind me if I missed any.  Hit the jump for the list.
