Pixar: Going Down?

Hello Internet!

This wasn’t what I originally had been intending to write about, but today’s events have brought this to the forefront of my mind. Today I saw the movie Brave for the first time, and for a variety of reasons, I didn’t like it nearly as much as many of the other works by Pixar. This concerns me a bit, since I had a similar reaction to Cars 2. That is two films in a row that Pixar has made that I personally find below average. Is this a sign of decline from the king of computer animation? Possibly, but it also could be just a lull. After all, Pixar has done so well historically that it could be hard to tell the difference between simple mistakes and actual signs of a long term drop in quality. Also, Disney Animation Studios, which of course is also owned by Disney, have been doing well lately, so if Pixar does┬ástart faltering they can bring some people in from there. I’ll have to see Monster University to be sure, and even then, I may still have to see their next original (in other words, not a sequel or prequel) film as well, which for the record is titled “The Good Dinosaur”.

Still, given how awesome Dreamworks has been doing lately, they’ve got their work cut out for them.

Till tomorrow,

Goodbye Internet!
