Wow Cars 2 is not faring too well on Rotten Tomatoes Is it the first Pixar movie that got a rotten rating?

The first one was the only Pixar film I've given a miss, simply because the idea of talking cars somehow holds zero appeal to me.

While it depresses the hell out of me that Pixar has finally made a profound misstep...

Hahahahahahahaha...fuck them for revisiting their most mediocre film to date for $$$$$$$. Cars was uninspired the first go-around, but boy was it marketable. Pixar, forget about the borderline Dreamworks fare and go back to tapping into the imaginations of children and their parents' hearts through your art. Really excited about Brave.

I think you're going to regret that statement.

Why would you say that? Just because Larry The Cable Guy does one of the voices?

I'm sad for Pixar's record to be tarnished after 16 years. They'll still have the box office streak alive. I think they're gonna regret delaying Brave from Fall 2011 at this point though, it would have been better to quickly cover the black eye.

I'll probably be dissed the hell out of for this, but I'm kind of pleased. I like a few of Pixar's movies, for sure - but at the same time, I fucking hate them. I hate that fucking smug, boring Cal-Arts style. I hate their cheap-ass ploys to make me cry like the start of Up. I hate the way people ask me if I've seen and loved the latest Pixar movie just because I'm genuinely interested in animation and want to work in that field. I hate the way adult critics go on about "oh no cartoons shouldn't make a grown man cry!" like Pixar's the first to put emotion into animation. I hate the way they just dominate the industry.

I agree with the above. Totally overrated.

For all Pixar's accomplishments, nothing they have made is anywhere near the rarified air of Studio Ghibli's best work, or last year's The Illusionist. The idea that something like Toy Story 3 would even be mentioned in the same breath alongside a towering achievement like Spirited Away is laughable.

Their style really bores me at this point; with the exception of Wall-E, the design and characters all look rather cookie cutter.

I'm totally indifferent to pixar. If the movie is good, cool. If not, I don't really care. But as far as design goes, I'm fairly certain that they're somewhat limited by rendering times. The simpler the shapes that make up a character, the less processing intensive the rendering. Of course, sometimes having to work within constraints results in the most creative output, but that doesn't seem to apply here. Either way, just sayin'

All I hear is tiny violins when laz talks about Pixar. Let's be honest here, what other mainstream studio could get away with making projects like Ratatouille, Wall-E, Up, etc? None.
