07:46 pm - The Incredibles ...
Among the many things I haven't LJed lately, we saw The Incredibles last Saturday. It was a lot of fun, and I'd recommend that anyone who hasn't seen it yet, should do so. Meanwhile, two parts of an interview with Brad Bird (director of The Incredibles ) - most of it in The Onion , and some bits which got edited out of The Onion .
Quoting :

Right now, and hopefully it will be short-lived, everybody thinks that if they do any idea in CG, it will be a box-office smash. Unfortunately, we all know from Hollywood history, in two years we're going to be deluged with bad CG films. When the majority of them fail—which they will, because a bad story in CG isn't any better than a bad story in 2D—the inevitable headline from the geniuses that always comment on these things will be "Audiences Losing Interest In CG." Well, no, they won't be losing interest in CG, any more than they have interest in CG now. They're interested in characters and stories, and to the extent that a film has those things, hopefully they'll succeed. And if they fail in those areas, they'll fail.

Yup, that sounds about right. Oh well ...

To which I can only add...

... then just what does he think he's doing with "Cars"? That one, unlike all other Pixars so far, is at the moment screaming at me I AM GOING TO SUCK! SUCKITUDE ON THE WAY! TAKE COVER! DANGER WILL ROBINSON!
