    From Worst To Best: Ranking The Pixar Movies

    This weekend Pixar's latest digital marvel, "Monsters University," roars into theaters (you can read our review here). Few studios can claim the kind of quality that Pixar often does – for a while there it was the most critically and commercially adored studio in the history of cinema (though they a...

    Watch: Three New 'Cars' Toons; Plus Is A Creepy Robotic Johnny Depp Headed To Another Disney Attraction?

    While the "Cars" franchise is seen by film fans as a blight on the mostly peerless Pixar record, a strictly-for-kids giggle-fest that contains little of the emotional nuance or visual invention that defines the studio's best work, it still, for better or worse, remains a perennial cash cow. Between ...

    John Lasseter Says 'Cars 2' Not About Selling Toys By Making Comparison To Lightning McQueen Luggage

    "Cars 2" was misery. Not only was it a pretty lousy movie, but it showed that Pixar, a studio that has had a nearly peerless streak of hit movies that were smart, entertaining and deeply thoughtful, was creatively fallible. At the time of its release, a handful of critics got behind the film but mos...

    In Theaters: 'Shark Night 3D,' or 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy'?

    Feel that morning chill? That's right, it's undoubtedly September, and film fans should be rejoicing. Goodbye and good riddance, August 2011, you were not one of those Augusts that defied the stereotype as the summer dumping ground. In the past few years, auteurs like Edgar Wright ("Scott Pilgrim vs...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Cars 2' Continues Pixar Formula, 'Green Lantern' Plummets

    The numbers on “Cars 2” don’t actually matter, except for the stat-hounds regularly following the weekly box office noise (us!). “Cars 2” exists to facilitate Disney’s biggest merchandising cash cow, a multi-billion (annually!) property that needs no further justification. As Pixar seems like a stud...

    In Theaters: 'Cars 2' Races 'Bad Teacher' To The Finish Line

    The box office arms race of 2011 continues this weekend, as we all recover from the sight of Ryan Reynolds' green CGI suit. This weekend, two contenders enter the ring. In one corner, we have the tried-and-true bread and butter, the consistent money maker, loaded with high end talent and a brand to back it up, not to mention merchandising out the wazoo-- yes, it's Pixar's "Cars 2." And in the other corner, we have the underdog, the newcomer with a loud-ass bark and still questionable bite, the promising but not yet proven genre, the raunchy lady comedy, "Bad Teacher." Two will enter, and one will exit with its tail between its legs, the shatt...

    Review: 'Cars 2' Features All New Parts, But With Less Than Pleasing Results

    Brightly colored, heartwarming, and making expansive narrative sweeps with an incredibly limited running time, it's the kind of bold, splashily produced film that has rarely graced multiplex screens this summer. But its biggest accomplishment might be that it reunites us with old friends (some of th...

    First Poster & Clip Arrive For Latest Pixar Short 'La Luna'

    We're be decidedly un-enamored of Pixar's recent approach to their features: this year's "Cars 2" looks, if anything, worse than its predecessor, and being jammed between last year's "Toy Story 3" and 2013's "Monsters University," the studio, one of the true bastions of creativity in the industry, seems to be heading towards the sequel-happy approach of every other big company, with next year's "Brave" being the only confirmed original project on their slate (although we've got no doubt that there are plenty of other films in the works), and big name directors like Andrew Stanton and Brad Bird being wooed away to the live-action world for fil...
