The Movie Pool takes a long look at the short films of Pixar from their new Blu-ray!
Short films from Pixar, many featuring characters from the studio's feature fims, are presented.
This second collection of short films from Pixar features 12 cartoons in stunning high definition. Many of the shorts were previously available on Pixar home video releases (including "Hawaiian Vacation" and "Air Mater"), and three are Academy Award nominees.
What we get in Volume 2 of the series is an eclectic mix of styles and approaches, and for the most part, it all works well. While some are mildly amusing, others (like "Day and Night") are exceptional, that entertain and manage to be original.
The shorts included in the collection are:

Josh Cooley has worked as a storyboard artist for the Pixar films The Incredibles, Rattatouille, Up, Cars 2, etc., and when he finds time, creates some pretty cool pop art, including the book Movies R Fun, a compilation of images from various R-rated classics put into the form of an old school Golden book for kids. There's a whole bunch of obvious ones in there and any film geek worth his weight should spot 'em easily, but that doesn't make them any less cool. Cooley only had 1,000 copies »

A Pixar artist seems like the perfect person to illustrate a series of classic film scenes, adapting them storybook-style. Josh Cooley reimagined what famous moments from movies like The Godfather and Rosemary's Baby would look like in a children's book. He's even altered the meter of the text so that some of cinema's most memorable lines read like those in a child's tale. The collected series makes up Cooley's book called Movies R Fun, which sadly doesn't seem to be available on Amazon currently — but we're hoping the artist will get in touch to give us an update on his project. In the meantime, dig into a preview of the book below, and then head to Design Taxi for more.
