I am going to see Ratatouille tonight! I am sort of excited about this! The reviews for it are great! Here are some of the quotes posted on RottenTomatoes.com which gives the movie an overall rating of 94% Fresh (that number is based on all the reviews given for the movie).
|“Ratatouille is not merely the smartest, funniest, most joyous, most lovingly crafted film of the summer thus far, but it ranks among Pixar’s finest.”
||Jam! Movies||Kevin Williamson|
|3.5/4||“No sketchy backgrounds here — Ratatouille’s scenes feels like deep-focus camera shots. The textures, from the gleam of copper pans to the cobblestone streets, are almost palpable.”
||Globe and Mail||Liam Lacey|
|“What makes Ratatouille such a hilarious and heartfelt wonder is the way Bird contrives to let it sneak up on you. And get a load of that score from Michael Giacchino, a perfect compliment to a delicious meal.”
||Rolling Stone||Peter Travers|
|“The master chefs at Pixar have blended all the right ingredients — abundant verbal and visual wit, genius slapstick timing, a soupcon of Gallic sophistication — to produce a warm and irresistible concoction.”
This movie isn’t just a kids’ movie. It appeals to me for it’s French setting, its look into a fine restaurant kitchen, and what is being said to be a great story. I haven’t seen an animated film in the theater since Toy Story, but after hearing over and over that Ratatouille is more than just kid fluff, and that it stays true to both fine cooking and good storytelling, I have found myself gearing up to see this movie for over a week now!
Here’s to having the determination of a rat!
