Disney is Killing Pixar And They Need Our Help

I actually like Cars 2, Toy Story 3, Brave, and Monsters University. I especially like The Good Dinosaur. Finding Dory is pretty good. Toy Story 4 feels weak to me. Cars 3 is just bad. I enjoyed Coco but the movie did not feel in any way exceptional. Soul is pretty cool. Lightyear is surprisingly good. It is not critically panned. It has a 74% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Lightyear did poorly because there was a conservative boycott due to a very brief same-sex kiss.

Jerry O'Connell shares a funny and emotional story about filming Stand By Me

Jerry O'Connell is not at all like I expected.  He said that he was hyperactive as a child, and you can see that in his personality.

Something Big (1971)

By definition, there has never been a larger discrepancy between the Critic rating and the Audience rating.

I remember seeing this movie in what was likely the late 70s on TV. I just rewatched the first 11 minutes and it is hilarious.
