A Complete Review of John Lasseter's work (16 movies items)

" What was it about? With a sale tag hanging from his seat, propped up in the corner of a bicycle store on a rainy night, Red the unicycle dreams about a better place. My two cents: Well, to be honest, I didn't care much for this short. I mean, the concept was not bad but, in my opinion, it was too similar to what they did in 'Luxor Jr.'. However, the biggest issue was with the clown though. Of course, I understand that they were just starting at the time to make such CGI animated features an"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: March (55 movies items)

"Re-watch - March 12th "Red's Dream" is as long as the two shorts above combined, and it seemed like a good place to stop for the night. Once again the animation is well-done for the time, and I like that it gets kind of a downer ending. The kiddo didn't appreciate the latter as much as I did, and expressed that she likes movies that have happy endings. This led to us discussing that both have their use & value, especially if the ending suits the story. "

1001 Animated Shorts You Must See - The Full List (1001 movies items)

"DIR: John Lasseter SUMMARY: A lonely unicycle in a bicycle shop dreams of better things. WHY IT'S HERE: Following the breakthrough short 'Luxo Jr.' was never going to be an easy task and John Lasseter's 'Red's Dream' is not quite in the same league. As a big fan of Pixar, however, I'm always interested in their early development and 'Red's Dream' has much to recommend it even as it falls short of the perfection of 'Luxo Jr.' Notably, 'Red's Dream' continues to see Pixar excel at animating us"
