  • Forget the movies for a second, the survival of the entire damn company is a CMOA. It spent something to the order of half a dozen years shilling one of the most advanced medical computers ever made[1] to companies that couldn't afford it, with pretty much no backing (this was during owner Steve Jobs' time away from Apple) and yet extremely few employees even considered quitting for better offers. John Lassetter--who was some guy using software-company resources to make short films--turned down job offers from Disney to stay at this dinky little start-up, insisting that unless Disney hired all of Pixar he'd stay where he was. Jobs straight-up refused to stop throwing money into this company in spite of ridiculously small returns on that investment. All on the hope of someday making the first all-CGI movie. And they did. Cut to twenty-one years later--Disney does, in a manner of speaking, hire all of Pixar, and puts Lassetter in charge of all Disney animation. AWESOME.
  • There is also another thing awesome about the films as a whole. While Disney based its movies on popular fairy tales (which is one of the main things that attracts childrens) and popular books, Pixar has the guts to create his own entirely original stories. And the best part? When you read the synopsis, these stories would look a bit lame and could have made horrible movies (a love story between two faceless mute robots, an old man in a house flying with balloons, a world with only cars...) However, Pixar made some of the best animated pictures of all time out of their own, original and unbelievable tales. THIS... is awesome.
