RATATOUILLE
2007, Walt Disney Pictures, 111 min, USA, Dir: Brad Bird, Jan Pinkava

This Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature follows Remy (Patton Oswalt), a rodent who dreams of becoming a top chef. Remy gets his chance by teaming up with a garbage boy at famed Paris restaurant Gusteau's, but he must be careful – rats are killed if caught in the kitchen. A voice cast including Ian Holm, Janeane Garofalo, Brian Dennehy and Peter O'Toole serves up a banquet of delicious performances. “A nearly flawless piece of popular art, as well as one of the most persuasive portraits of an artist ever committed to film.” - A. O. Scott, The New York Times.


INCREDIBLES 2
2018, Walt Disney Pictures, 115 min, USA, Dir: Brad Bird

In this animated action-adventure, Helen (Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack - whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so incredible.


THE INCREDIBLES
2004, Walt Disney Pictures, 115 min, USA, Dir: Brad Bird

“THE INCREDIBLES was everything that computer-generated animation had trouble doing,” noted writer-director Brad Bird of challenges the action-adventure represented to his team at Pixar – but the end result was a blockbuster hit that earned Oscars for Best Animated Feature and Sound Editing. Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter provide the voices of Bob and Helen Parr, heads of a family living quietly in a Metroville surburb, until the arrival of the nefarious Syndrome (Jason Lee) prompts the Parrs to return to their previous identities as superheroes. Like the film’s visual design, Michael Giacchino’s retro-futuristic score has the feel of 1960s spy movies and comic books while remaining contemporary.
