Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #14: Professor Brandywine

professorbrandywine

We’re finally at the last Pixar film that I have to do for this project, Monsters University (until Inside Out becomes old enough for me to pick a forgotten/minor character from).

I’ve reviewed the film before on this blog and my views of the film are pretty much the same. So, I won’t go over my thoughts on the film or the plot, so if you want to know that, please read my review by clicking here.

Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #13: The Two Female Castle Maids/Cooks/Workers

braveworkers

We now arrive at¬†Pixar’s Brave. Since I’ve reviewed this film already, I won’t go into the plot here. Instead I’ll just redirect you to my review of this film that I did in 2013 by asking you to click here. Basically, my thoughts are pretty much the same except that I don’t “love” this film as much as I seemed to back in 2013 nor do I think that this film was necessarily better than A Bug’s Life.

Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #12: Crabby

cars2crabby

We now come to the Pixar film that most critics say is the worst of the Pixar films. While I might agree with that statement (even though I’m still making up my mind about it), this is definitely not my least favorite Pixar film. I do like this film, not much, but I do like it. I’m talking about Cars 2.

Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #11: The Janitor

His name might be Mr. Tony, but I'm not sure.
His name might be Mr. Tony, but I’m not sure.

In 2010, we got the third chapter in what would become an awesome trilogy along the lines of the original Star Wars, Back to the Future, The Lord of the Rings, etc. Toy Story 3 was a massive success both critically and commercially. It was the first animated movie to gross over $1 billion in the worldwide box office.

And the only one until this brainfreeze came along!
And the only one until this brainfreeze came along!

It was a film that nigh everybody connected to emotionally. I personally didn’t cry, but I went as far as I’d ever gotten up to that point to crying while watching a movie…and that’s saying something.

Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #9: The Current CEO of the Buy n Large Corporation

Mystery-Man-1.3

Wow, this is the 3rd Pixar movie in which I’ve had difficulty selecting a forgotten/minor character and ended up having to go with a character that was unseen, or in this case, not even mentioned. Good job at stumping me, Pixar!

"No need to thank us. It's the least we can do as American citizens!"
“No need to thank us. It’s the least we can do as American citizens!”

Anyway, today’s forgotten/minor character is from Pixar’s 9th film and winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, WALL-E. (Warning: this post will have spoilers!)

Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #8: Francois

Pixar’s 8th feature film is one hailed by many as a perfect film, not just one of their favorite animated films, but a film that deserved a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards. I personally don’t love this film all that much, but I definitely do like it. Which film is that? Ratatouille, of course!

Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #7: Chuck and His Team

carschuck

Pixar’s Cars franchise is considered to be the worst amongst Pixar’s films. And I kinda have to agree with that statement, but it’s no way to say that I don’t like the movies. They’re not bad movies; they’re just the least best of Pixar’s bunch.

Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #6: Snug

theincrediblessnug

Pixar’s The Incredibles has quite a devoted fanbase and probably rightly so. The 2004 hit film from Pixar isn’t my favorite, but it’s a wonderfully made film. The fanbase so loved it that a sequel has even been planned by Disney/Pixar in the coming years.

For those who don’t know, The Incredibles tells the story of a family of superheros who has to go into hiding after the world doesn’t feel safe with them around.

Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #5: The Blue Proclaimer Classmate Fish

findingnemoblueproclaimerclassmatefish

Finding Nemo is a film that I’ll always cherish. Not because it’s so good (which it is), but it was the first movie I ever saw in the theaters. I’m not someone who goes to the¬†theaters much, so I was very excited to see a film in the theaters for the first time!

The film, as you all know, is about a father clownfish named Marlin, voiced by Albert Brooks, who teams up with a royal blue tang with short-term memory loss, named Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, to find his son, Nemo, voiced by Alexander Gould, who has been “fish-napped” by Australian divers.

Wow, what a wordy synopsis!
