UNDERRATED 'The Iron Giant': Remember our Vin Diesel item a while ago? We picked up a copy of this DVD last week and were reminded how charming director Brad Bird's big-screen debut is. "The Incredibles" and "Ratatouille" may have more pizazz with Pixar's computer-generated muscle behind them, but this film's timeless message and "Giant"-sized heart trumps them both. How this didn't generate just as much acclaim is beyond us.
