Suddenly I realised that I have been using the word ‘awesome’ in almost every part of my life. How awesome it is that such an awesome word is created to express the joy of someone or something that is totally awesome? Baffles me too.
Anyway this is going to be a very short one. Last Thursday, we were invited to a screening of Ratatouille; hosted by Intel to celebrate the 1st anniversary of Intel Core Microarchitecture. Quite a nifty idea — the premise of the movie that something so small could do something so great. I thought the introduced connection was smart :)
By the way I’ve been calling it ‘the rat movie’, because I can’t spell ‘ratatouille’ without looking up the dictionary. I know how to pronounce it though, since it’s splattered all over the promotional posters. But since I can’t spell it without making some extra effort, I’m not gonna, so when I have to type it out, I’ll just refer it as ‘the rat movie’.
Basically, the plot lifted from IMDB.com:
Remy is a young rat in the French countryside who arrives in Paris, only to find out that his cooking idol is dead. When he makes an unusual alliance with a restaurant’s new garbage boy, the culinary and personal adventures begin despite Remy’s family’s skepticism and the rat-hating world of humans.
So here’s my verdict:
Animation: Pixar outdid itself again… AWESOME!
Voice talent: Bunch of unknowns who are often always better than famous type celebs… AWESOME!
Storyline: Your typical family relationships, some humorous parts here and there… AWESOME!
Everything about the rat movie: AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!!
My thanks to Intel for the tickets (nice cake by the way, too bad we never did get to sample it ;) ) because I HEART HEART HEART the rat movie! I am getting my entire family to go watch it, and will get a copy on DVD for Ryan as soon as humanly possible. Hopefully that will get him off the CARS phase because to be honest, I am pretty sick of CARS by now.
Mini update: 0_0 I got sent a photo of the cake… see how awesome it is :D Actually not a good idea for me to be looking at cakes now… kempunan.
The rat movie is my current favourite.. until we get to watch Bourne Ultimatum. Fuck Rush Hour 3, go watch the rat movie!
