A Tribute to the Best Cinematic References in Pixar Films
Pixar films are fantastic to watch for countless reasons, but one of them, especially if you're a cinephile, are the many allusions they make to some of the greatest films in cinematic history.
In this video compilation by Jorge Luengo Luis, we get to see the many times Pixar has nodded to films like Jurassic Park, Vertigo, and The Shining.
I don't know anyone who doesn't like Pixar movies (a Pixar movie, sure, but not the whole bunch), and this is just another reason to swoon. Pixar doesn't just make films that are entertaining with great plots, funny characters, and tons of heart, they make films that are clever, smart, and clearly don't rely solely on their exceptional VFX to gain their merit.
In other words, Pixar seems to know where they came from -- where the medium came from. They seem to understand and appreciate the contributions other filmmakers have made to cinema, even if they don't represent the same genre.
