Pixar Short Films Collections HDRIP! (Part 3)

...... Continued from Part 2

7) “For the Birds” (2000)

Another Oscar winner for Best Animated Short Film, released theatrically alongside Monsters, Inc.. A clique of birds perched on an electrical wire get an unexpected visitor in the form of a large, awkward blue bird, much to their chagrin. A delightful play of color, character design, sound effects, and dialogue-free storytelling, this is the most quintessential Pixar short of the bunch, best illustrating the amazing talent and cinematic skill of the animators to entertain so easily in such a short span of time. It is also the last to be free from speech—from here on out, they’re all talkies.

imdb rating: 8.2/10

8 ) “Mike’s New Car” (2002)

A supplement released alongside Monsters, Inc. on DVD, “Mike’s New Car” tells the unfortunate tale of Mike and his awesome new car, a top-of-the-line behemoth with more buttons than a VCR remote. When Sully and Mike try to go for a drive, chaos ensues. Some beautiful animation and technological skill is evident here (check out Sully’s fur). For fans of the film, this one scores high marks.

imdb rating: 7.3/10

9) “Boundin’” (2003)

An interesting departure for Pixar attached theatrically to the start of The Incredibles, “Boundin’” tells the musically narrated tale of a young sheep, happy as a clam until sheep-herders appear and shear him of his clothes. Luckily, a jackalope appears to give the young animal the secret to happiness—bounce your cares away. A cute message and colorful animation will sure to delight the kids, but the format of music and monotone poetic narration failed to strike a chord in this reviewer.

imdb rating: 7.1/10

10) “Jack-Jack Attack” (2005)

Something of a deleted scene from The Incredibles, “Jack-Jack Attack” fills in the missing moments with the youngest baby and her hapless babysitter as Jack’s super-powers manifest in dangerous and outrageous ways. A fantastic short, but only if you have seen the feature film, otherwise it makes no sense whatsoever.

imdb rating: 7.8/10
