Pixar's Tribute to Cinema

You may have noticed that Pixar story artists and animators are movie lovers, and often slip references to classic films into their movies. But you probably haven’t caught how often it happens. Recent film school graduate Jorge Luengo Ruiz of Madrid noticed, and put those references together to show us. Ruiz mentioned that he left out A Bug’s Life because the whole movie is “is a tribute to Kurosawa's Seven Samurai.”  Besides Kurosawa, Pixar seems to have a undying admiration for Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock.
