Nice to see Lasseter get some recognition. Seems like everyone has kinda forgotten about him with the emergence of Bird and Stanton.

I look at Lasseter as the Spielberg of animation. He is an incredible director in the field, who has been hugely influential, but because he is the standard by which everyone is compared he is unfairly marginalized. His first three films are masterpieces and even Cars is, in my opinion, a great film. But somehow he is forgotten in the light of Bird and Stanton, much like Spielberg is forgotten in the light of people like Fincher, or even Scott.

Because Fincher is a carbon copy of Spielberg
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

Except minus the sentimentalism and plus more needless/gratuitous special effects. If there is anything great about Spielberg its that he uses CG only when needed (Indy 4 not counted) and nearly always makes sure they do not call attention to themselves (again, Indy 4 not counted.)

i was being sarcastic.

How is the director of fight club and seven even compare to the director of jaws and raiders fo the lost ark? Please tell me, i just can't see why.

also, wasn't war of the worlds very effects heavy, or did they actually create loads of giant walking tripods and put veins all over the earth?
