Remy At One...
A year ago today, "Ratatouille" was released. This film, directed by Brad Bird(his third film, second for Pixar) was a different direction for the Lamp... it was more mature and less formulaic yet filled with the DNA that is Pixar. A tale of life and living your dreams no matter what others say you should conform to. And you thought it was just a rat that likes to cook?
Many of the negative nabobs were saying this was the one that would bring down Pixar, but they were sadly disappointed as each week it kept grossing more and more money. While not the monster that was "Finding Nemo", the film goes on to out perform "Cars" at the box office. The film goes on to get some of the best reviews of any Pixar film... until "Wall-E" was release last week.
