Hey guys! Time for another revi- what’s that? …I forgot to post yesterday? Oh…
Sorry… This is Ratatouille!
Story: Remy the rat wants to be a cook! Strange…
Yeah, the premise is a bit weird. But like Turbo, it somehow makes such a ridiculous premise into a engaging plot.
My favorite aspect of the plot is the relationship between Remy and Linguine. I love how it grows and grows until Linguine becomes famous. Other parts of the story are kind of slow at times, but that’s just me.
Animation: Pixar animation plus Pretty Paris views.
Characters: I really love these characters. But they are a bit generic. Remy is the dreamer. His dad is keeping him down. Linguine is the unpopular dweeb. They’re pretty generic.
But what makes them interesting is what is going on inbetween the lines. It’s the things that aren’t really explained but you can really see it.
Like in a scene where Remy’s dad shows Remy the rat poison window. As they are talking about survival, something makes me feel that these characters are feeling more than they are saying. That’s a sign of good character writing.
In conclusion, Ratatouille is a huge step up from Cars, with a good story, beautiful animation, and solid characters. It is a must see for everyone. See you later, Animators!
