S1E8: Ratatouille

Taylor Gaines and Tyler B. Commons study abroad for the eighth episode of “Natural Selection,” diving deep into the recipe book for 2007’s “Ratatouille.”

For Brad Bird’s counter-cleanliness classic, the guys discuss Pixar’s trademark research trips, pet rats, the late Anthony Bourdain’s opinion of the film, making rats cute, and shooting up your own home. They also talk about the strangest split-second of any Pixar movie, vampire food critics, making a movie about rats and humans where the audience is rooting for the rats, and criticism’s presentation in movies.

Featuring: An exciting update to the Natural Selection rankings and a DRAMATIC READING.
