Aside from the usual suspects from the house of Pixar like Inside Out, Toy Story, Wall-E, Up , let’s start with one of the rather underrated movie, Ratatouille, which deserves the same level of reference and praise.
In Ratatouille, it’s the story of a young French blue rodent named Remy, who is gifted with an extraordinary sense of smell and taste buds. He’s positively inspired by a TV cooking show with Chef Anton Gusteau, whose motto is “Anyone can cook!”. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris and beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Remy’s passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down.
