Pixar: Automaton

Pixar: Automaton

This experimental short film from Pixar effects artists and director Krzysztof Rost is quite the departure from their story- and character-driven productions. Instead, we’re presented with a wordless world to bear witness to nature’s fury. We’d love to see a crisp 4K version, as YouTube’s compression algorithm destroys the detail.

The latest movie from Disney and Pixar follows the story of a boy who starts making new friends in a seaside town in Italy. But it turns out that he’s really a sea monster who’s take on a human form. The fish-out-of-water-who-wants-to-live-with-humans story sounds a bit like another Disney flick, The Little Mermaid.

Listening to Toy Story

Listening to Toy Story

For as groundbreaking as the CGI animated visuals were in the original Toy Story, Gary Rydstrom’s sound design was every bit as important in conveying the stories of Woody, Buzz, and company. The Royal Ocean Film Society invites us to listen to some of the sound effects that helped bring the Toy Story universe to life.

Honest Toy Story 4 Trailer

If you told us a movie about a plastic spork being dug out of the trash would make over a billion dollars, we’d think you were nuts. But Toy Story 4 managed to do just that while keeping a 25-year-old franchise fresh and fun. Screen Junkies latest trailer reminded us it’s about time for us to queue up a Toy Story marathon.

If Michael Bay Directed UP

If Michael Bay Directed UP

By filling all the balloons with explosive hydrogen, then adding extraneous edits, lens flare, and a power ballad, YouTuber Mr.Stratman7 managed to turn the Pixar classic UP into your typically overdone Michael Bay popcorn flick. The only thing it’s missing is some giant robots to knock things over.

You’ve Got a Friend in Me: Violin Cover

You’ve Got a Friend in Me: Violin Cover

Skinny Sully

Computer graphics animator C4D4U was playing around with some digital hair rendering techniques when he came up with this hilariously weird creation. After asking his YouTube followers to name the blue-green, dancing sasquatch, one of them put it best: “When Sullivan finishes his diet.”

Imagine for a moment that the toys in the Toy Story franchise weren’t alive in the way Pixar wants us to believe they are, and instead are synthetic hosts created by the Delos Corporation. Nico Bellamy shares that vision with us in his hilariously dark mashup trailer of Toy Story and Westworld.

The Onion Reviews Toy Story 4

The Onion’s film critic Peter K. Rosenthal takes a look at the latest Toy Story film, comparing the CGI animated tale with its source material, a traditional German fairy tale “die Reise der Spielzeuge,” written in 1793. Needless to say that Disney Pixar’s version comes off as a little watered down.

Woody and his pals are spending time with little Bonnie these days, and the kid has decided to add a new toy to her collection – “Forky” (or is that “Sporky?”). But the plastic utensil is reluctant about his new role, and leads the toys on a wild new adventure.

If Toy Story was a Thriller

If Toy Story was a Thriller

Sure, BloodBlitz cheated by adding some blood and explosions, but for the most part their Toy Story gone evil trailer parody is made from actual footage from the classic Pixar franchise. Seriously, Babyface is the stuff of nightmares.

Pixar: Purl

Pixar: Purl

From Pixar’s “SparkShorts,” comes an animated short about an anthropomorphic ball of yarn who gets a job working among a bunch of bros in business suits. Director Kristen Lester’s film is a lighthearted tale about embracing what makes us unique.

Avengers: Infinity War and Beyond!

How It Should Have Ended envisions not how Avengers: Infinity War should have ended, but instead what it might have been like if a different Disney-owned character was the real bad guy looking to fill up his Infinity Gauntlet.
