Brian Dennehy and Andrew Jimenez – Exclusive Video Interviews – Ratatouille

     October 30, 2007

Earlier today I participated in video interviews with all the key people who made the brilliant, amazing, phenomenal, exceptional movie that is “Ratatouille.” In case you couldn’t put it together, I think the movie is an absolute work of art. It’s written and directed by Brad Bird, who’s previously made “The Incredibles” and “The Iron Giant” – two films that I love and adore.

Anyway, the reason for these new video interviews was to help promote next weeks DVD and Blu-Ray release of the movie. While I didn’t get a chance to try out the review copy that Disney sent us, I’ve heard that it’s loaded with extras and it hasa stunning transfer.

So the interviews below are with Brian Dennehy and Andrew Jimenez. Brian is one of the voices in the film, and Andrew made a short called “One Man Band” as well as being a key person on “Ratatouille.” Both interviews are great, and as an added bonus… I got Brian to talk about “Righteous Kill” and working with Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro on the upcoming project.And if you’d like to watch some clips from the “Ratatouille,” here’s a link to an article from earlier this summer.

Again, “Ratatouille” is one of my favorite films of the year. I cannot recommend it enough.
