Die Hard and Ratatouille

The Friday double feature was "Live Free or Die Hard" and "Ratatouille".

"Die Hard" was fun. It didn't reality check nearly as well as the original (in which the impossibilities were entirely matters of scale rather than utter absurdities), but it was a great deal of fun, with a number of GREAT lines. This movie suffered from the magic computer issue to an extreme degree, and McLean's ability to survive hard knocks is pretty miraculous, but, well, John McLean doing his thing, you know?

"Ratatouille" was silly and fun, though Dementia thought the pacing was bad. It delivered what it promised, no more and no less.

The trailer string for "Ratatouille" featured TWO movies which used the song "Brazil" as a symbol for mechanistic dystopia. Shades of Terry Gilliam...

The end title for "Ratatouille" included a badge which proudly proclaimed that the film was 100% animation, and used no motion capture or other shortcuts. I am baffled that anyone cares; is there some bizarre ritual significance to this? If you can't see it, and it doesn't involve immorality or illegality, WHO CARES how it was made?
