The Pixar Story

Last night I was having a hard time sleeping, so I found myself perusing Netflix. I have never been so happy to be an insomniac. I found a delightful little documentary about Disney’s partners in crime: P.I.X.A.R.  It follows the talented, John Lasseter, from his college days through the success that his company achieves.

I will be the first to admit that the Pixar films, Toy Story aside, have never been at the top of my list. Finding Nemo was the last of their films that I really enjoyed. (I haven’t even seen Cars 2 yet.)  Please don’t start filling my comment box with hate. Being the silly girl that I am, I just prefer the fairy tales. The Pixar films always seemed like “boy” movies to me.  However; that doesn’t mean that I can’t appreciate them for the works of art that they are.  The breakthroughs that these films achieve are mind blowing! “The Pixar Story” helped me to understand the hard work and devotion that went into making this company a reality.
