thedailyjaws referenced the “Jaws” movie crew having nicknamed the prop sharks “Bruce”. Upon reading that, it suddenly hit me that it must be the reason that the great white shark in Pixar’s Finding Nemo was named “Bruce.” Or another reason, anyway. I had always assumed that it was just because it’s a stereotypically Australian name.
Excellent to see that Pixar still had plenty of fresh ideas for this sequel.
Release date is November 18th. They’ve got good pricing on the DVD, a 3-Disk Special Edition DVD, as well as Blu-ray, so go pre-order it.
Yesterday’s Daring Fireball Linked List included a link to A special ‘Where’s WALL-E’ edition of Why For? for a look at some of Pixar’s in-jokes. Emily and I are quite the pair of Pixar fans so most of these reference were known to us, but there are a few gems we hadn’t noticed yet. Tin Toy under the bed in Lifted? Incredibles Manga in Finding Nemo?!
The Movie Review
Last night, Emily and I went out and saw Cars, Pixar’s latest movie which was released this past weekend. We’re both huge fans of Pixar’s movies. Not only are the graphics and animation amazing, but the stories are great and they have excellent character development. Their movies are hard to beat (I think it’s a tie between them, Aardman Animations—specifically Nick Park and his Wallace & Gromit series, as well as Creature Comforts—and Studio Ghibli—specifically Hayao Miyazaki’s and Isao Takahata’s movies), I’m surprised they’ve been able to keep it up as long as they have.
