New from The Movie Snob

Ratatouille (D+). Am I being too harsh? Maybe, but this movie from Brad bird, the director of The Incredibles, was a big disappointment. It's about a rat named Remy who loves good food and good cooking. This makes him a misfit among his fellow rats, and when he finds himself in Paris he quickly attaches himself to a famous restaurant named Gusteau's. He helps a garbage boy become a successful chef in Gusteau's kitchen, and a couple of villains have to be overcome (most enjoyably the dreaded food critic Anton Ego, voiced by Peter O'Toole). Although visually spectacular, as you would expect, the movie as a whole is simply dull. The animated short that precedes it, about a would-be alien abduction, was okay.
