      I recognize maturity is at a premium here on the comic book and cartoon board but please avoid hero worship.
      One man cannot be responsible for an entire international megacorporation.

        You trying to act mature when you probably believe the boogeyman stories of Lasseter touching women's butts kek, get real

      It was dying long before he left. Him leaving was simply the fifth nail in the coffin.

      Lasseter only left a couple of years ago, there's only been a handful of films without him

    …what 2 is that OP? I’m struggling to think of anything even half decent after Up.
    I actually liked Monsters U alright but most people seem to hate that one.

      Which ones would be those 2?

      Brave was the 10 year mark movie, including it and everything after has been released in the last decade.
      The only 2 that come close to the same standard are Coco and Inside Out. Even then, I use the phrase "come close", not match.

        Brave is not even average by Pixar standards

        Pixar is getting close to having the distinct honor of being in a zombie state long enough to have more bad films than good despite being a (once) legendary studio. I think you get a trophy for that called a Homer.

          Who thought Cars 2 was a good idea? It wasn't even marketable.

          How is Luca lower than Soul and Incredibles 2? Soul was just average and Incredibles 2 was garbage, Luca is the best film Pixar has put out since WALL-E

            Tomatoes isn't necessarily reliable unless people who didn't like the film go onto the site.
            It's also not lower than Incredibles 2 as according to the audience.

            What I'm more interested in is why the critics sometimes disagree with the audience when for the most part they're on the same page.

        Most popular ones are toy story monsters in. Nemo incredibles and cars

      I really liked it too. It was what a sequel (prequel) should be if you want to tell another story in the same universe. I wish the same could have happened for Incredibles 2. The first is a classic. Shame the sequel bombed.

    All movies rely on one gimmick, when it fails it fails really fucking hard, Buzz Lightyear is the peak of what's wrong with IPs getting remade, it's a spin-off of a character from a '95 movie, Toy Story 4 already failed to do numbers because believe it or not it's hard to sell a sequel for children of something made almost 30 years ago, even if homosexuals tell you the movie making a horrible box office is because parents aren't taking their children to watch a movie over one (1) gay character.

    Because nearly everyone responsible for their classic films were either fired or quit and replaced with diversity hires. It wasn't the name "Pixar" that made the movies good; it was the people behind them.

      Women, people of color, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and allies have always worked at Pixar. An Asian woman saved Toy Story 2

        That was natural diversity. They weren't hired to fill a quota.

              That article has literally nothing to do with what you insinuated, which is that Pixar fired people for being white and had strict hiring practices to meet a quota you can't name or define during 2012 or after.
              Again, you're insane.

      Fixed that for you.
      Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4 were shitty sequels (they'd probably be alright as stand-alone films but as sequels, which is what they are, they were just terrible). Soul was alright, the music was great, but the plot was meh. It's middle of the road.

    Coco was the only good one since Up. From the others I expected something else and it didn't satisfy. Onward was fun

    Once the Roys died, Disney and its subsidiaries had no reason to put out quality. So they went full profit margin.

        Guess who bought Pixar in 2006.
        Guess who needed hardware for their digital ink and paint system.
        Guess who Lasseter worked for after graduating CalArts.
        Guess which media conglomerate many of the founding members were huge fans of.
