Go See Ratatouille!
When I got up & left the theater that afternoon, several thoughts went through my head:
-how great the animation was...
-how the rats in the film acted & moved like real rats, & not like men in Mickey Mouse suits...
-how well developed the characters, voices & story was...
...but the one important thought that went through my head, as well as everyone else in that theater was probably this:
I swear, I just wanted to reach out & grab that food right off the screen! I heard more stomachs growl in that theater in those 2 hours than anywhere else in my life.
The movie was not quite what I expected, but what I saw up there on the screen was equally, if not better, than what I expected. Fantastic, superb, excellent film! (& what a funny little cartoon in the beginning, too!)
Do the world a favor... if you haven't seen Ratatouille yet, go see it NOW! I mean it... get up, grab your keys, drive on down to your local theater, shell out 10 bucks for a ticket, buy a jumbo-sized bucket fulla popcorn, a tub of soda & a crate of Buncha Crunch, sit down & watch that goddamn movie! Period! End of story!
