It's hard to imagine there being a better movie this year than RATATOUILLE. Smart, funny, and very moving, the film has a fantastic script with great performances by all involved. Perhaps the most stunning aspect of the film is the brilliant character animation. Clearly inspired by many classic artists from Disney to Chuck Jones to Charles Addams, each character comes alive after only a few seconds of screen time. There's also some great physical comedy, almost like a silent movie, when the rat (who can't talk to humans) pantomimes and later becomes puppet-master to the human chef.
This film is an absolute must-see for everyone.
