    Yeah, a lot of positive reviews, but nothing overly enthusiastic that suggests it's on par with the others

    I'm sure it's good and everything but is anyone else kinda getting bored of safe, typical movies over and over again? I mean, outside of seeing it once to just see it and be done with it, are people coming back to these multiple times over the years?

    Apparently this is "weirder"

    I hope they really push some boundaries somehow but I'm not holding my breath.

    Some reviews make that seem like a possibility, don't shoot the messenger

    hold on, let me catch my breath Supporter

    6 screenwriters for this? Damn. Honestly thought it was just Rashida and Will who penned this one. Still excited to see this, particularly for the weird factor.

    Yes. The trilogy is fantastic and feel good. I've seen them all many many times.

    Not sure I get whatever point you’re trying to make here. Is it against this franchise, Pixar films, or G-rated/PG-rated animated films in general? I could argue the first three movies definitely “pushed boundaries” (whatever that means) for animated films, but the franchise’s primary focus was always telling family-friendly stories that resonate most with our generation. The writing, voice-acting, humor, and music from the first three are unforgettable.

    I'm a curmudgeon and for whatever reason it annoys me when what I feel are cookie-cutter movies, in any genre to be clear, are lauded as if they're masterpieces when they're not doing anything new or pushing boundaries. I know it's dumb but I can't help it.

    I just don't really know why you think it's "cookie-cutter." The first Toy Story was the first computer animated film ever made.

    I wasn't referring to the first one only though. I was talking about the 4th film in this series, as well as thinking about other computer animated movies for kids and what they've been doing for 20+ years now. I find the majority of them are just good, safe movies that don't really push boundaries.

    I do still need to see Coco but I was actually just thinking of Up! as well. That one obviously started with something shocking and with something I don't think had been covered in a kids movie before, at least not in that way. But once that prologue was over, it fell back into the typical kids movie trope of cute kid, talking dog, etc... I thought it fell pretty flat.

    WALL-E is something that I'd say was a masterpiece but then about halfway through when they went to space and introduced the humans, then it fell flat. It did have an incredible last five or ten minutes though. I'd say that's the closest to a masterpiece that I've seen from Pixar.

    Lol, I can definitely see the argument being for the last few years being rough for computer animated films with a select few being fantastic. But not the last 20 years. There are too many classics I can name off the top of my head since 1999.

    Shrek, being the leading example

    Man, Up is so incredible after the prologue. How can you deny the power of the scene when he's looking at his wife's childhood scrapbook to find it filled with pictures of them throughout their marriage? The character development is unprecedented!!

    I know a lot of people don't love Wall-E but I really love the whole thing. Might be my favorite Pixar film, but it also hit me at a perfect time. Really fills you with a joy to be human.

    And yeah, I totally get that I'm being cynical and shit about kids movies, haha. I can't help it

    Wall-E and Inside Out are probably my top Pixar films.
