Ratatouille :D

October 15, 2009

❤ I'm such a sucker for Pixar films. The animations of Pixar are so fluid, so witty, so clean. The Incredibles was ,well, incredible, Up was way up there on my fave list, and Ratatouille was simply delicious..so delicious that I just had to watch it again.
The idea of a five-star restaurant being run by a little rat made me snicker. He was the cleanest rat I've ever seen, plus he can cook! Remy has a gift, and he used it to make people happy with a "little" help from an ex-garbage boy. The movie never gets old…I was cracking up at the sweet old lady in the beginning who pulled out an semi-automatic. XD Linguini reminded me of myself; clumsy and unable to cook. My favorite has to be Colette though, she was a skilled chef who pinned Linguini to the chopping board with 3 kitchen knives and later made an AWESOMELY witty and fast speech about cooking.
"No! You waste energy and time! You think cooking is a cute job, eh? Like Mommy in the kitchen? Well, Mommy never had to face the dinner rush while the orders come flooding in, and every dish is different and none are simple, and all different cooking time, but must arrive at the customer's table at exactly the same time, hot and perfect! Every second counts and you CANNOT be MOMMY! "
Yes, I just had to google that out. Mhmm.
Anton Ego was also an interesting character…heck, the majority of the characters in this film was an interesting character. Each with different personalities, different point of views, and different situations. He seemed harsh and unforgiving in the beginning (I'd like your heart roasted on a spit…heheheh), but at the end of the movie he appeared kinder, more laid-back. His flashback scene made me went "Aww" since mom's cooking is always the best! Yup yup. The ending was kind of unexpected, but happy.
Oh, for my own amusement, I watched the whole thing in French with English captions…haha, the result was pathetic. I could not understand a word they say except the ratatouille (pronouced hata tu e in French) bit, "good," "I want," and some food names. I have a long way to go. Hopefully I'll be able to understand the whole movie in French 3, hopefully.
Woah, I suddenly realized how hungry I am…food movies make you like that. I DID devoured a whole tub of popcorn and a medium coke at the theater. I wonder what ratatouille tastes like, I heard it's a vegetable stew with a special gravy. Hmm…must do research and bug mom to experiment! @_@

“How?” you ask? Well…

Dad: So you say your scanner is broken?

Me: Yeah, can you fix it?

Him: Did you check the wires? Are they plugged in?

Me: Yes.

Him: …are you suurrree?

Me: Yes!

*he fiddled with the ink cartriges, rechecked the wires just in case, checked the electric sockets*

Me: It’s not going to be fixed is it?

Him: Tch, just sit back and watch, you’ll see *scratched his head* Well…

Suddenly…

He proceeded to slap the scanner really hard, then the green light flashed.

Him: Err…

Me: o.o

Him: I’m brilliant, aren’t I?

Moral of the story: “attack” the problem head on.

So, thanks to my brilliant dad, my scanner is now working again, and I can now pile my sketches on you guys…yay. I wanted to post the fire hydrant first but the cupcake/cool whip muffin deserves the spotlight for today. It’s so delicious looking (so delicious that I ate my first one, lol.) Well, here it is:

A yummy cupcake. :]

Feeling hungry yet?
