I liked Monsters Inc. and The Incredibles too, though the first Toy Story is by far the best film they've ever made. Cars was... weird.
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

Personally I think that Shrek trumps all the Disney/Pixar movies for sheer all-round entertainment, albeit pitched at a slightly older audience. It was just the right movie at the right time for me when I was ten (also the age at which I discovered Keen, but that's another day's work). However, if asked to choose a Disney/Pixar flick it would have to be Toy Story.

Pity that two of the four Shrek films are utter garg.

Keen is one of few things where the sequels are done right ;)

Honestly I'm not sure why; I'll do my best to spoil as little as possible.
There are some good gags here and there, but when you break down the plot to its crux it's a classic underdog story with a surprise layer of-...I suppose the best word to use is humanism - a certain redefinition of what creativity actually is.
I'll go out on a limb and say it may actually be worth watching it if you gravitate towards not just a creative disposition but rather raw creativity; undefined, boundless, pure creative power.

I thought there was a female love interest? :confused

(Because if there's no love interest in an action movie, the action hero has no reason to do anything. Just let the the apocalypse break loose from the arc of the covenant and what have you.)

Except if the Hero is Vin Diesel just doing it to be the Hero.

In any case, I just watched the Movie. Starts off great, and like almost 100% of all 21st Century movies it drags a bit in the second half, partly destroying the mood of the first half by trying to be bigger better faster more than the first half.

I liked the guys from PLANET DUPLON though :D
