  • I like this…what seems to be a forthcoming trilogy. I wonder what “Oh Chelsea, Where Art Thou?” will be?

    Great episode. Was wonderful to hear from Pablo again.

    It was so nice to hear some love for this movie, which, as you said, is totally underrated and oft-forgotten. It’s actually my favorite Pixar film. So many fond memories watching this as a kid.

    One thing that I think you should know if you don’t already is related to the “you lied” scene.

    Atta’s being a total hypocrite in that scene. Yes, I’d be angry too, but she’s already lied. She lied to Flik about permitting him to go search for warriors because she wanted him out of the way, not because she believed him. Atta seems to be the one with the upper hand in the colony, but she isn’t the type of influence that the colony needs right now.

    Although Flik DID lie, he tries to make it better, and they do come up with a pretty brilliant plan, which makes it all the more stupid for Atta to banish him.

      Ooh. Great point!

    I LOVE this movie! When I was little, my friends would always quote, “It’s payback time – blueberry style!”

    I do have one thought though.. I kind of wish the podcast was a little more organized. I feel like there are so many aspects of the movie that didn’t get covered. I understand that there is LOT to talk about, but I feel like you guys barely covered half of it. Just something to think about. I still love you guys though. 🙂
