We’re finally at the last Pixar film that I have to do for this project, Monsters University (until Inside Out becomes old enough for me to pick a forgotten/minor character from).
I’ve reviewed the film before on this blog and my views of the film are pretty much the same. So, I won’t go over my thoughts on the film or the plot, so if you want to know that, please read my review by clicking here.

We now arrive at Pixar’s Brave. Since I’ve reviewed this film already, I won’t go into the plot here. Instead I’ll just redirect you to my review of this film that I did in 2013 by asking you to click here. Basically, my thoughts are pretty much the same except that I don’t “love” this film as much as I seemed to back in 2013 nor do I think that this film was necessarily better than A Bug’s Life.

We now come to the Pixar film that most critics say is the worst of the Pixar films. While I might agree with that statement (even though I’m still making up my mind about it), this is definitely not my least favorite Pixar film. I do like this film, not much, but I do like it. I’m talking about Cars 2.

His name might be Mr. Tony, but I’m not sure.
In 2010, we got the third chapter in what would become an awesome trilogy along the lines of the original Star Wars, Back to the Future, The Lord of the Rings, etc. Toy Story 3 was a massive success both critically and commercially. It was the first animated movie to gross over $1 billion in the worldwide box office.
And the only one until this brainfreeze came along!
It was a film that nigh everybody connected to emotionally. I personally didn’t cry, but I went as far as I’d ever gotten up to that point to crying while watching a movie…and that’s saying something.

Wow, this is the 3rd Pixar movie in which I’ve had difficulty selecting a forgotten/minor character and ended up having to go with a character that was unseen, or in this case, not even mentioned. Good job at stumping me, Pixar!
“No need to thank us. It’s the least we can do as American citizens!”
Anyway, today’s forgotten/minor character is from Pixar’s 9th film and winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, WALL-E. (Warning: this post will have spoilers!)

Pixar’s 8th feature film is one hailed by many as a perfect film, not just one of their favorite animated films, but a film that deserved a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards. I personally don’t love this film all that much, but I definitely do like it. Which film is that? Ratatouille, of course!
