Um….you mean.. “Pixar told a better love story in 8 minutes, than Stephanie Meyer did in 4 books”.

You are right…Pixar probably is responsible for the story part, but the movie is actually by Pixar and Disney.
Also the author does spell her name “Stephenie,” not “Stephanie.” :-)

Pixar is the creative force behind Up (and Toy Story and Bug’s Life and Cars and Monsters Inc and more). Disney markets and splits production costs. In my opinion, Pixar is what Disney used to be–creatively driven; Disney has lost that kind of vision.

i struggle to think of any good original ideas disney has ever come up with, the lion king can be one, but the rest are remakes of popular stories etc.

That’s kind of the point, Ben. They’re fairy tales.

Lion King is Hamlet….furrealz

The Lion King was in no way original. It was a nearly direct copy of Kimba the White Lion, a Japanese manga dating to 1965. I’ve attached a link to an interesting read. http://www.kimbawlion.com/rant2.htm I also recommend Elmore Leonard’s “Corporate Mouse”.

Twilight is exactly what they were written for; teen girls that have idealistic views about love. Although I don’t know if vampires and sacrificing yourself for your “true love” is necessarily the best but it’s an easy, fun read. It’s not supposed to be deep (at least I hope it isn’t supposed to be).

Pixar/Disney ;) did exactly what they have been doing for the last 20+ years: realizing that their movies don’t always need to be geared towards children, but they can have kids and children truly enjoy it on their own. We love Up, the kids are a little concerned about the wife though.

The love story in Up was told so perfectly that when the 8 minutes came to an end I stopped the DVD, stood up and a kicked and screamed and declared that Disney was evil for ending it that way!! I DID NOT want to continue the movie – it took me another week to get back to it.
I’ve watched one of the Twilight movies, and it just left me feeling, “Huh? What? how did Twilight Woman (aka S. Meyer) even get that published?”

To be fair, they are stephanie’s first 4 books. Disney have been making love stories for YEARS. x

Ok, these were her first 4 books.
J.K. Rowling’s first 4 books, awesome.
Christopher Paolini’s first 4 books, Awsome (He was 15yrs old when he wrote Eragon).

S. Meyer first 4 books, Pure crap. Her grammar, writing style, character development, and lack of detail are atrocious. When a 15yr old can write better than a 37yr old, that is sad. I’m not even going to bring in how she messed up the vampire genre. Just as a writer, she even insults fans when they ask questions about the “Twilight” universe.

Anne, you made me laugh! I was so disappointed when the first part of the story ended. It was such a sweet beginning to the movie I felt like the rest of it wouldn’t measure up! ( I really like about 90% of the movie- it was just a great story and had a great moral to it!)

Many base the love story of Twilight solely off of the movies. If you would actually read the books, the story line makes a lot more sense and doesn’t seem as ridiculously cheesy. The creators of the movies did no justice for the books so it is an unfair comparison.

I haven’t read the books but even Stephen King thought Meyer shouldn’t have written them.

Michaela December 15, 2011 at 3:28 pm

I actually read all four books and I thought they were just as cheesy and badly written.

I love UP! It’s so true because everyone can relate to it. I’m getting very bored of all these vampire stories.

HOW DARE YOU COMPARE A MOVIE AS GREAT AS UP TO A STUPID TEEN DRAMA SERIES LIKE TWILIGHT?

Twilight is an abortion to literature.

I have kids so I’m no stranger to Disney movies! Up is one of my favorites. As for Twilight, I have never seen it and have no desire to ever watch it!
