Ratatouille 
Pixar doing what they do best
3.5/4 stars

Holding true to Disney tradition Ratatouille is one of those films that will stick with you if it is one that you grew up watching. Personally I found the movie to be a great Disney film as well as another perfect example of why Pixar is the best in the 3D animation world.
I like the challenges that Pixar has taken on in this film, while my perspective here is more as an animator than as a movie goer, I know what kind of challenges needed to be overcome to make the film work. What many people don't realize is that of all of the different technical components to create a good 3D film there are a number of things that many companies will stray from because the application and function is just too difficult. 2 of the most difficult things to work with in 3D are hair and fur.
This is why I hold this movie in such high respect. The difficulties of working with these two components make even some of the most seasoned artists cringe. Pixar pushed the limits and picked up a number of challenges giving a new depth to the animation that others had not touched before. Previously we wouldn't see more than one or two characters with fur on the screen. Pixar decided to make a whole colony of rats with unique identifiable characteristics that we could see anywhere from 2 - 100+ at any given time on the screen.
Manipulating hair is also a major challenge, so to have Remy pulling on Linguini's hair all the time it shows the determination of how far Pixar will go to make something that will not only be fun for kids but to show those of us that have worked on these kinds of films that not everything has been done yet, and no matter the difficulty, nothing is impossible.
The lighting and scenes are visually stunning, and the animation is flawless. I highly recommend this film and I think it will be one that people will still be enjoying 30 years from now.
