Oh I have seen it before. I thought it was really, really enjoyable! Really nice to see it again after so long. Really, really sad though. THanks A113

That's the saddest ending of any Pixar film. But I still liked it. I hope they make a sequel. :cry:

Hmmm, I think that is an enjoyable idea, but I am really happy that there is only one. I hope it stays as one.

You're welcome. It's sad, isn't it? The first time I saw it, I cried. :cry: But I can handle it now. I'm still hoping for a sequel...one with a happy ending.

I've been reading a book all abour Pixar, and it mentioned how Red's Dream was made. The beginning and end, in the shop, were apparently made using a more advanced system, unlike the actual dream itself which was made using one of Pixar's own brand computers. So apparently the dream sequence is more crude, though I never really noticed it myself.

John [Lasseter] always jokingly says that the film represents Pixar's "Blue Period" . :lol: The film is quite sad in it's ending, but that's what John was aiming for - to have something with pathos .

Aww, yeah I liked it, up until the end. Yes, I know John was going for a sad ending but really, it made me so depressed! Honestly when I listen to the commentary for it, I was like "totally! Why CANT the clown come in and buy it?? It just wants to perform! awwww" Wow, i'm so pathetic. :wink:

Not only would that be tough on their computers, but JL was going for a sad ending just to throw people off a bit.

But JL learned his lesson: Happy endings rock! 8)

I like happy endings too. A very Japanese thinking by the way. Yeah, Red’s Dream wasn’t happy at the end but if Pixar could license this machine and program it to balance a clown, not what you see in the picture, then I’m sure Red could light up people’s faces, for real, like this machine.
