Quiz: Which Pixar Characters Are You?

Perri_Pixar_CardYou likely won’t track down a Waste Allocation Load Lifter – Earth-Class or your very own talking dog like Dug anytime soon, but thanks to TheFandom.net and Movies.com, you can take a step into the Pixar realm with your very own Pixar Identification Card.

The fine folks over at TheFandom.net are dedicated to everything and anything fandom related – Harry PotterThe Hunger GamesStar Trek and loads more — but after the success of their ID card-producing Universal Fandom quiz, they’re looking to branch out and tackle Pixar, too. Similar to the Universal Fandom quiz, which requires you to answer a series of questions to determine which breed, species or house you belong to within each franchise or narrative, the Pixar quiz will use your answers to tell you which character you are in 10 different Pixar movies.

Cinematical Seven: The Animated Pets We’d Love to Own

Cats and dogs are fantastic pets, but nowadays it’s all about one-upping your neighbor with a more unusual critter. There are designer dogs, micro pigs, lemurs, exotic birds; the choices are practically endless. A tank full of piranhas is a cool thing to show off to your friends, but the fun really stops there. What we need are some cute and loving creatures with a little more going on upstairs. And the ability to talk couldn’t hurt either.

Let’s face it: a nice majority of moviegoers wish, even if it’s just the slightest bit, that their toys would come to life à la Toy Story. Or what about having a trusty magic carpet like in Aladdin? You could also go for Cinderella‘s pals Gus and Jaq, the talented mice who help make her dress for the ball. Like the growing amount of atypical pets out there, the possibilities are endless, but should Pixar, DreamWorks or any other animated filmmakers out there take 3D a step further and turn their creations into a reality, I’ve got a few suggestions for animated characters I wouldn’t mind owning.

Cinematical Seven: Ways For Kristen Bell To Spice Up Her Relationships

It was no surprise that after Forgetting Sarah MarshallKristen Bell opted to stick with romantic comedies. She wasn’t the film’s prime comedic relief, but her performance proved that she’s got the chops not only to provide a good laugh, but to create a genuine character as well. The problem is, by sticking with the genre, she wound up with junk like Couples Retreat and today’s new DVD/Blu-ray release, When in Rome.

Couples Retreat was one thing; she got the opportunity to star alongside Jason Bateman, Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristin Davis and Faizon Love. If she was looking to network, to sign on for a guaranteed hit or just get some face time alongside a talented bunch, this was it. What was her excuse when it came to When in Rome? Okay, Josh Duhamel is quite good looking, but surprisingly, that’s not all that counts when it comes to romance.

Katherine Heigl and Jennifer Aniston might be stuck playing the same lady in a relationship crisis for the rest of their careers, but Bell is not. The talent is there, she’s just got to find better reasons to put it to use. She needs to leave the formulaic romcoms to those doomed to the genre’s dredges for eternity, and move on to something she can make memorable. There’s no harm in staying in the land of love, but at least test the waters and explore the vast amount of more unconventional relationships out there. Why not give one of these a shot?
