    Do not bring plastic surgery up in this thread.

    Plastic surgery is a terrible idea for a Pixar movie. Considering their recent outings are skin deep, anyway, I find such an idea counterproductive. Pixar's Nip/Tuck? Come on!

    Wouldn't making a vampire movie be more "following the bandwagon" and less "orginal artistic vision"?

    I do agree that there needs to be a more prominent non-for-the-whole-family animation industry sector, though I think "sex and boobs" isn't exactly what I have in mind when I think of "mature". The medium has so much potential!

    Also, can you really criticize Brave without having seen it? How can you tell it's a "politically correct" movie and not just one with a female protagonist?

    Within the context of a Pixar movie, or any mainstream big-budget computer animated movie (I'm not counting those stupid Japanese movies), for that matter, you're damn right it would be original.

    Mature content doesn't always mean "mature."

    I know a bit about its development.

    She wasn't his 'secretary,' she was his office manager, and since she was an SP-style INFJ, "boobies" would have been entirely inappropriate for her character. So far you are not inspiring much confidence.

    ironically, the best thing about Brave was its honest depiction of a volatile mother-daughter relationship. Typically Disney movies axe the mother so that she never appears in the movie, and Pixar's gone either way (Finding Nemo hinges on an incident that robs the family of their mother; and on the other end, I think Helen Parr in The Incredibles was probably the best, most realistic animated mom I've seen). So I think bitching about the fact that the movie focuses on a female heroine and her relationship with her mother as the core conflict of the movie is in essence criticizing one of the most original things done in an American animated movie for quite some time, rather than it being part of "convention."

    I had other bones to pick with the movie, which basically are just that a lot of the wit was dumbed down, the witch wasn't very memorable but cobbled together from various similar characters we've already seen, and the movie doesn't really seem to go anywhere plot-wise. It seems much shorter than it was. Many of the secondary characters just were not very distinctive and ended up being painted entirely as buffoons rather than having nuance in their character.

    I would say that Pixar should make a movie called Real Dolls, but it's probably better suited as Dreamworks' cheap knockoff of Toy Story.

    Maybe Ralph Bakshi will hire you on as a consultant, if he picks up the concept.

    How about a sincere computer-animated biopic? And by sincere, I don't mean tacky like Pocahontas.

    How about an animated biopic of Walt Disney?!?

    Pixar should keep making funny family movies like they have been doing in my opinion. :P

    I'm secretly hoping blizzard cinematics will make some cool movies. As far as animation goes, they've always been top notch.
