Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
Failure is an option.
When an overconfident teen alien gets behind the controls of a spaceship, he must attempt to abduct a slumbering farmer under the watchful eye of a critical instructor. But abducting humans requires precision and a gentle touch, and within a few missteps it's painfully clear why more humans don't go missing every year.
Pixar doing short little films is like a teat to those who show support to they amazing films.
Lifted is about a teenage alien tries to abduct a sleeping human, but with so many switches to do so, it's nearly impossible.
While I'm doing these short films from Pixar because I like to talk and recommend short animated films to those who haven't seen or heard of them. These just something about watching these movies and short films that nobody probably never heard of and discovered that it's amazing or great and it's like my duty to recommend and talk about it to get it's auditions to take notice, and Lifted is another great short animated film by Pixar.
If you own the DVD or blu ray of ratatouille then you have probably seen this, it is one of the extras, its a short one and trust me brilliant one.

Task #3: A Pixar short
Short of the Day
When you combine the talents of the Pixar studio, top-notch animation, a clever premise of human abduction by aliens with a bigger twist that the abduction is being done by an abductor in training that has to rely on thousands of switches to get the job done, and the funniest use of the Wilhelm scream ever, you get Lifted, the best short ever released by the Pixar studio by a longshot!!!
I want to start by saying that I consider this to be the first short of the current Pixar era. It was the first to be released after the mega deal that brought Pixar officially into the Disney fold and put John Lasseter at the head of all animation, inclusive.
The film embraces the physical humor of classic Tex Avery & Fritz Freleng and the "violence is funny" nature of Chuck Jones' mid-period work, while, at the same time, clearly announces its modern intentions to show you something new and improved.
Ostensibly, a story about an alien abduction attempt gone horribly awry, "Lifted" is funny on several levels.
We watch as a beam of light from above spotlights an…
Despite the misleading title, this is not a stoner comedy, but rather a pretty adorable dialogue-less animated short by the folks at Pixar about a UFO trainee, under close supervision, attempting to abduct a sleepy rural resident, to mixed results.
Like a fine wine, Pixar short, Lifted, has ripened and got better with age. Even if you count "getting better with age" as a day. Oh well; it's better after less than 24 hours, anyway.
Turns out Pixar shorts are just as fun and great as their feature films.
I think there was a problem with the copy I saw because it only lasted five minutes then the screen just went blank? Typical Pixar nonsense.
It always confused me how the human in this short looked exactly like Linguini from Ratatouille
And on top of that, this is the short right before Ratatouille
I wanted to watch another movie before I went to bed because I want to stay on top of my goal but I didn't want to stay up that late so I cheated with this five minute one
Gotta love Pixar.
Als de examens achter de rug zijn zullen mijn dagelijkse films weer langspelers worden i.p.v. de kortfilms die ik al een paar keer logde.

It's Pixar and I love it every time.
Usando uma premissa muito conhecida em filmes de ficção científica, a Pixar cria outro curta deliciosamente hilário. Apesar do começo um pouco assustador e angustiante, Lifted é repleto de cenas muito engraçadas para todos.
Apresentando dois alienígenas(um que não sabe o que está fazendo e outro que o observa criticamente e o avalia) e o humano com O MAIOR sono já visto em histórias desse tipo, temos uma história de abdução que reverte o esperado, apresentando uma história com um mestre e um aluno MUITO inexperiente.
As piadas se focam muito mais no aluno e em suas tentativas frustadas para realizar seu trabalho, mas o outro alien gera humor apenas pelo tipo de presença que faz no curta;
Enfim, é um curta bom, com muitas piadas físicas e nenhum diálogo, mas com garantia de relaxar qualquer um que o assistir.
P.s. :Assista até o FIM dos créditos. Você não vai se arrepender!

Short films that I've seen and enjoyed. Would love suggestions as well. I've included The ABCs Of Death as there…
