Yeah, but I really don’t think the filmmakers/producers purposely set out to make a mediocre film as long as it was diverse. Again, with respect, these are all assumptions.Because the films themselves haven't actually been that good. Most are fine. But they're not great. Continuing to only focus on "representing cultures that haven’t really been explored all that much in animation" while not making good movies? That's a rut.
I mean, if a film isn’t that great, it’s obviously going to lose money. Why would any studio in Hollywood be OK with losing money?
Yeah, but we don’t know any of this. In my opinion, it’s really not likely.That's the point I and I think Eric are getting at. Just giving a second generation immigrant carte blanche to make any film they want does not deserve praise from anyone.
