Bad guy meet the robinsons
Meet the Robinsons is a computer-animated family film produced by Walt Disney Pictures about a intelligent young boy named Lewis, who invents things but does not have any family, even though he wants one. Then one day, Lewis' world is changed when a boy called Wilbur, who has a time-machine, takes Lewis on a trip to the future to meet Wilbur's family — The Robinsons. So we had some different challenges: we had skin texture we had to work out, we had to grow hair off of characters' heads and we had to find an animation style that was still fun and loose and had some caricature to it, but could portray humans in a believable way. The Incredibles was a definite inspiration for this.

Meet the Robinsons (United States, 2007)
The 47th Disney animated feature film , it was released in standard and Disney Digital 3-D versions. It was the first film released after then- Pixar executive John Lasseter became chief creative officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios.
Lewis is an aspiring year-old inventor who grew up in an orphanage , whose inventions have been scaring off potential parents. He works all night on a machine to scan his memory to locate his birth mother, who abandoned him at the orphanage when he was a baby.
While taking the scanner to his school's science fair, Lewis meets year-old Wilbur Robinson, a mysterious boy claiming to be a time cop from the future. Wilbur needs to recover a time machine that a man wearing a bowler hat has stolen. Lewis tries to demonstrate the scanner, but it has been sabotaged by the Bowler Hat Guy and falls apart, throwing the science fair into chaos.
Lewis leaves while the Bowler Hat Guy, with the help of a robotic bowler hat named Doris, repairs and steals the scanner. Wilbur meets Lewis at the orphanage and asks him to repair the scanner. Lewis agrees to do so only if Wilbur can prove he is telling the truth, which Wilbur does by taking them to the year in a second time machine. When they arrive, he and Wilbur get into an argument and crash. Wilbur asks Lewis to fix the time machine, however Lewis realizing that he can simply use the time machine to see his mother instead has another condition: Wilbur has to take him to visit his mother afterwards.
Reluctantly, Wilbur agrees and hides Lewis in the garage. Lewis does not stay there for long, however, and ends up meeting the rest of the Robinson family except for Cornelius, Wilbur's father, who is away on a business trip. The Robinsons offer to adopt Lewis, but change their mind when they learn that he is from the past.
Wilbur admits to lying to Lewis about taking him back to see his mom, causing Lewis to run off in disgust. Lewis then discovers that Cornelius Robinson is, in fact, a future version of himself, and Wilbur is his future son. Because he was kept awake by Lewis' work on the scanner, Goob fell asleep during an important Little League game and failed to make an important catch that cost the game. Goob became so bitter as a result that he was never adopted and remained in the orphanage long after it closed.
Doris is "DOR", one of Lewis' failed and abandoned inventions. They both blamed Lewis for their misfortunes and decided to ruin his career by stealing the memory scanner and claiming credit for it. Leaving Lewis behind, they take off with the scanner, drastically altering the future to a world where Doris' clones have enslaved humanity.
Lewis repairs the second time machine, confronts Doris and destroys her by promising to never invent her, restoring the future to its Utopian self. After persuasion from Lewis, Wilbur tries to ask the adult Goob to join the family, but he has disappeared, apparently ashamed at what he has done. Back in Wilbur's time, Lewis finally meets Cornelius face to face. Cornelius explains how the memory scanner started their successful career, and persuades Lewis to return to the science fair.
Wilbur takes Lewis back, but makes one stop first: as he promised, he takes Lewis back to the moment when his mother abandoned him. Though Lewis approaches his mother, he ultimately decides not to interact with her, realizing the family he will come to have with Wilbur and others.
Wilbur drops Lewis off in his own time and leaves. Lewis heads to the fair, but en route wakes up Goob just in time for him to make the winning catch. Back at the fair, Lewis asks for one more chance to demonstrate his scanner, which this time succeeds. He is adopted by Lucille, one of the science fair judges, and her husband Bud, who nicknames him "Cornelius" and takes him home. The film ends with a quote which reiterates the message of not dwelling on failures and "keep moving forward", attributed to Walt Disney.
Originally titled A Day with Wilbur Robinson , production began in June , and was scheduled for a release. When he saw an early screening for the movie, he told the director Stephen Anderson that he did not find the villain scary or threatening enough, and suggested that he make some changes.

A 3D Blu-ray was released on November 8, As of January , the DVD had sold approximately 4 million copies. The site's critics consensus states, " Meet the Robinsons is a visually impressive children's animated film marked by a story of considerable depth.
Realmovienews stated that it has "a snappy plot that demands close attention as it whizzes back and forth in the space-time continuum, touching on serious ideas and proposing some rather disturbing alternate realities. And the witty story twists are handled with rare subtlety and intelligence. In the end it may get a little weepy and inspirational.
But it's so charming that we don't mind at all". Urban of Australian Urban Cinefile said that " Walt Disney stood for fantasy on screen and this is a loving tribute to his legacy".
Conversely, A. Scott of The New York Times wrote: " Meet the Robinsons is surely one of the worst theatrically released animated features issued under the Disney label in quite some time",  while Lisa Schwarzbaum of Entertainment Weekly gave the film a "C" and said "This is one bumpy ride".

Meet the Robinsons
Time travel stories are difficult to tell. When watching a movie that focuses on time travel, the audience is often quick to point out the multitude of story problems and paradoxes that ought to make the entire film unspool far differently than it does. When the film in question is an animated movie put out by Disney and geared for children, as with Meet The Robinsons , the target audience is probably somewhat less demanding. It is lucky for Disney that this is the case, as Meet the Robinsons is riddled with plot holes, paradoxes, and a multitude of ill thought through notions. While children in the audience won't be picky about these, it does lessen the enjoyment for adults.

Bowler Hat Guy
Each week or whenever I get the chance , I dig out a Disney film either animated or live action from my shelf, pick a Disney short, and watch both together in one superb evening of Disneyfied goodness.

Meet the Robinsons (United States, 2007)
I found some good animated films in , but I didn't find ten. And it's likely that only two of them are titles most moviegoers have had the chance to see. My list reflects a growing fact: Animation is no longer considered a form for children and families. In some cases it provides a way to tell stories that can scarcely be imagined in live action. The classic example is the Japanese " Grave of the Fireflies " left , about two children growing up on their own after the Bomb fall. This one begins with the truth that villains are often more fascinating than heroes, and creates a villain named Gru who freeze-dries the people ahead of him in line at Starbucks, and pops children's balloons.
It's tempting to label Meet the Robinsons as just another in a long line of recent computer animated kid-traps, but it deserves a more upbeat description. Thankfully, we're not subjected to the new staple of the big-screen cartoon - anthropomorphized animals are kept to a minimum a few genetically engineered frogs and a T-Rex. I'm tired of talking bears and singing donkeys. It goes without saying that children will enjoy the movie this is a blanket statement that applies to anything except the worst animation , but there's enough of a storyline to keep adults from dozing off. Lewis is a year old orphan with a penchant for inventing things.
