This film was totally jaw-dropping for me! It may not be the best story ever told, but it was a very well put-together story! Everything was so inspiring!
My eyes were just in awe the whole time! Can't wait to see it once again! I was the only one left in the theater cause I had to sit through the whole thing and take it in for a moment!
If you haven't seen it yet! It's a must-see! I couldn't believe the amazing effects that they are constantly improving. The water and the wet hair and clothes. And the animation was amazingly kick-ass! The flippin scenery was jaw-dropping. The food looked real enough to eat! I kinda want to see it at an IMAX superscreen and just take in the detail!
Oh and the short film, "Lifted" was true comic genious! Amazing comedic timing. A sweet little appetizer before the feature!

Well this was pretty awesome! I was flipping through channels on the ole' TV and stopped on Jeopardy when I saw they had a Joe Ranft catagory. "Pixar Legends, Joe Ranft"
I wasn't quick enough to record it, but some of the answers I remembered were
"Joe was the voice of Heimlich in the 1998 Pixar film..." And the contestants said Antz! AHHH!
"Joe was the voice of Jacques in Pixar's 2003 film..." One contestant said Little Mermaid!!! NO!!! Finally one buzzed in with Finding Nemo
"Joe voiced Elmo St. Peters and co wrote for Disney's 1987 "Brave Little, what?" One guy said "warrior"!!! I wanted to punch him haha! Thankfully one contestant knew it was "toaster" of course!
Another was about him co-directing for Cars! They got that one right.
I, for some reason am blank and cannot remember the other ones cause I was so excited!
Oh man I was so into it, screaming and shouting the answers! And shouting at the contestants for getting them wrong! Oh man I knew every answer cause they were so EASY! haha Good times!
I hope some of you caught it and hopefully recorded it! I wish I had TIVO!
Anywho! I just thought I'd share that with you from one Joe Ranft fan to another!
(Still can't believe it)
Thank GOD for you Joe Ranft! Rest in Peace!
Those who don't know Joe Ranft!
Joe joined Disney in 1980 as a "story man" on films such as "The Brave Little Toaster," "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Lion King."
He was also the storyboard supervisor for "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and "James and the Giant Peach"
Joe was an inspirational story-man that has been around in the business for a long time and probably got his most attention as being one of the 4 main guys that built PIXAR stories to the best of its potential. He joined the crew in 1990 and was nominated an Academy Award as co-writer for "Toy Story"
He was the voices of Heimlich the Caterpillar (A bugs life), Jacques the Shrimp (Finding Nemo), Wheezy the Penguin (Toy Story 2), Red (Cars), and many more additional voices.
