I take the Armond White remark as a compliment, since he is an incredibly intelligent man who can tell you exactly why he did or did not like a movie, and constantly provides good analysis. If you however watned to imply that I am a contrarian just for the fun of it, you would be wrong.
I love animation in movies and I have nothing against a CGI movie.
The Toy Story movies are for kids and teens. then to not completely piss of adults who were dragged along they throw in one or two adult jokes in each movie, like "Uh oh, rocket envy!"
The Toy Story movies are bland, superficial, standardized Hollywood dreck for the young masses to consume (much like AVATAR). the emotions put in are forced, they are almost completely devoid of humour. Hollywood has always thought, and still thinks, movies have to be VERY dumbed down to please a young audience.
Old Disney animated movies and Studio Ghibli, that’s where the magic happens: Incedibly well made, well written, full of emotion, drama, humour, thrills and feel-good stuff.
With he exception of Finding Nemo, i disliked or hated every PIXAR film I have seen. Happy Feet was okay, btw.
