Movie Review: Ratatouille

My Rating: 5Stars

This evening I saw the pre-screening of the movie “Ratatouille” at Golden Harvest Multiplex, Mongkok.

Yes, many of you who knows me may ask,

Why am I going to see this movie in Mongkok of all places?

Well for one thing, it is a special preview prior to the actual Hong Kong release date of August 2, 2007, and the tickets were free; as I had won them from a “BC Magazine” contest. Speaking of the contest, that is another blog entry of mine.

This is the first movie after The Walt Disney Company’s purchase of Pixar Animation Studios in 2006, which now becomes part of the Buena Vista Motion Pictures Group.

It took 7 months, but I finally able to give a movie my 5 penguin rating. I am so glad that it was a Pixar movie. It is also the first movie this year that the audience applauded when the movie finished.

The animation in the movie was so accurate and realistic that each time a scene with rats swamping, it made the hairs on the back of my head stand on its end.

The story was also very original with the typical smart humor that Pixar is always famous for. The last movie with such great humor was “Finding Nemo“.

The actor that played “Remy” was Patton Oswalt, whom I’ve seen in the TV series “The Kings of Queens“. Fortunately, I did not know or remember that, since I did not like his character in the TV series. Here Remy’s sad cuteness is adorable and lovable by the entire audience young and old.

I will definitely purchase the movie for my digital library and may even go see it one more time. Since these tickets were free from the contest at BC Magazine (yet another article for my blog).

So far this year, if there was any movie you must see, this is definitely the one.
