Holy cow. I just saw Ratatouille, which is FREAKING GENIUS AND PROOF GOD EXISTS AND LOVES US. And God’s name is Brad Bird.

Good grief, people, I was flipping out over a PIECE OF BREAD. A PIECE OF BREAD. The modeling, texturing, and rendering of the food was absolutely exquisite and miles beyond any CG movie I’ve ever seen. The stylization of the characters was delightful, their animation was EXTRAORDINARY (especially Linguini’s), and they all had such depth and personality! I genuinely cared for every one of them. Then the cinematography and lighting were out of this world, and the story was energizing and positive and will be appreciated by people of all ages.
