A couple of awesome things...
Just wanted to comment on a couple of things that have really impressed me lately. I highly recommend both of them.
Pixar is so impressive. what other movie studio has yet to make a movie that isn't awesome? And now, this latest clever, brilliant film continues that tradition. I don't want to give much away, but once again they show why they are the kings of animated films. The story, characters, and writing are all top-notch, and their computer artistry has gotten so advanced that it honestly looks... hand-drawn again. This film deserves to outgross Spiderman 3.
This is a re-release of a 2 year old game, with new and improved Wii controls (not so much motion controlled as using the aiming and targeting functions of the controller). I never played it before. And wow, it's just incredible. Has anyone out there ever played this game? I really want to talk about it with people. There are just so many incredible parts, one breathless battle after another.
Warning. It's terrifying!
Great story, amazing mood. If you have a Wii, it's $30, and that makes it a no-brainer. Best non-Nintendo game I've ever played. (I haven't beaten it yet, I'm on stage 3-2. I can't play for too long because I break out in a cold sweat). No lie.

i took my family to see ratatouille today. i think my wife and i liked it even more than our 4 year old son. he loved it but 'cars' is still his #1. as for ratatouille, everything was incredible, particularly the writing and the directing, e.g., amazing choreography. to all: see this movie regardless of your age. thorough entertainment!

also, brad bird is one goofy-lookin dude.

I know it's such a cop out... but I really like those 2, and I can't rank them because they are all different and I haven't grown tired of any of them. I'd put Ratatouie up with them for sure.
