Re:

I didn't say that. I just think that Cars 2 will still get top marks by critics, who may still see it as an entertainment, but with the Pixar name, a quality entertainment. Really? Must have misunderstood you then. And, yeah, it's really not worth losing sleep over. I'm really not there yet. But if...

Re:

So the critics would basically turn the blind eye to whatever faults this commercial sequel might have simply because it comes with the Pixar logo?
Let's certainly hope not!

Tyler Perry is always an exception. He doesn't exist within the realms of physics.

Re:

Can't say I agree. People love Pixar movies because they're well-made and evoke real emotion. Well, for most of us, anyway. Like I said before, you just aren't on the Pixar wavelength... which is fine. You're trying to justify your stance (which is not really necessary, as you're entitled to your o...

Re:

I'm not trying to provoke or anything. You rather misunderstood me. I'm surprised that critics allow themselves to be impressed by plot twists. And I don't think that the Pixar characters are particularly original. At least not in general. I think they might give the impression of being more creativ...

Hehe, yeah maybe. ^^

Nah, but I love movie soundtracks. John Powell is awesome.

Re:

So..."Kung Fu Panda" and "Dragon" were only good movies because of...math? Oh-kay. Not really. A mathematical certainty has nothing to do with the math you remember from school. It's simply a law that says that something is bound to happen if, for example, you do something over and over again. Now ...

If they don't bother releasing the soundtrack for an animated series, it's probably because it isn't very good to begin with. That has been my impression at least.

So wait, what happens if Cars 2 turns out to be a really bad movie? How would the critics react to that? I'm almost under the belief that Pixar can't release a movie that doesn't go beyond - let's say - at least 60 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Something about the Pixar formula, รก la original characte...

If at first you do succeed, keep trying until you don't. That has been DreamWorks philosophy for ages. The thing about DreamWorks is that they have made good animated movies simply because they got quantity. A studio that produces dozens and dozens of animated feature films ought to make at least on...

Good movies can be discussed for decades! But yeah, you are probably right about the TS3 thread... ;)

Madagascar takes the cake. No question about it.
