I actually...agree. I rewatched Toy Story 1 & 2 before 3 came out and was surprised by how well 1 held up, even though it was slower and quieter than I remembered, how much I kinda didn't care much about Toy Story 2.
But yeah, what's happened in Pixar kinda feels like Apple after Steve died, but I guess in Pixar's case it's Pixar after Disney finished devouring it.
There was this mystique...that you never knew what Pixar was really up to, they'd drop little hints and pictures here and there, then all of the sudden you get this super unique thing, that just hearing about you rolled your eyes at, but once you saw a trailer, your ticket was bought.
Now...Pixar's just like anybody, but with a little more potential. People keep saying Cars messed up Pixar, but no one cares about Cars. They kinda accept it as the runt of hte litter that makes a ton of money. Nah, it's not cars or the fact that they're making sequels and prequels, cuz people were all the way on for Pixar after Toy Story 3. It's about what they did with that goodwill. They announced Monsters U, when everyone was really waiting for Incredibles 2.
And then they put out Brave, while the competition had Wreck-It Ralph and ParaNorman...and now Frozen and Lego Movie and the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and How to Train Your Dragons.
It doesn't feel like Pixar fell off, as much as Pixar's been gone for the last 4 years. And they don't even have a movie coming out this year.
If Inside Out and Good Dinosaur kill it, Pixar back. If they don't...*shrug*...others people are doing things now too.
Before you if you didn't have an iPhone, you had a Nokia brick, a Razr or a crappy slider phone...now, if the iPhone is slacking, you couldn't run out of great options.
