Short-brown haired Rapunzel, well it's just not her. As far as Dory goes, I'm not a fan of Ellen but she is a really funny person and she makes that character good. I agree as long as it's not the same thing constantly of her forgetting and they add in something else to her character it should be really good.
    You and I seem to follow the same golden rule: No pixie haircuts! If you look at the vast majority of Princesses they all have long, lovely hair. Snow appears in animation to be shorter yet the face character in the parks has lots of hair too. Betting if they could do a re-do she'd have long hair in the animated movie.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Awful ride aside, Dory is my least favorite part of the Finding Nemo attraction.

    It's such a forgettable ride that I don't remember much of anything about it.

    My only true issue is that I wish they'd get out of sequel mode.

    Are Up Returns and Brave 2 right around the bend?
    Take a look at the upcoming Pixar movies.

    MU: We'll go ahead and call this a "sequel"
    The Good Dinosaur: Original
    The untitled movie that takes you inside the mind: Original
    Finding Dory: Sequel, probably more of a spin off
    The Dia de los Muertos movie: Original

    3 out of 5 of their upcoming projects are going to be completely original. I'd say that's pretty good.

    Will they be good or similar to the quality of Cars2? Quality storylines are no longer a given.

    Re: Another Disney Pixar Sequel

    I think there are enough people within Pixar who are still passionate about great storytelling to not allow these projects to go down that lackluster path.

    Both Cars movies are huge indictments against Lasseter. Both of those films were his babies. They got made because he wanted them to be made. And he wanted them to be made, I think, because he saw that they would be marketing and merchandising giants, and would make boat loads of money. Granted 1 was miles and miles better than 2 (and I actually don't hate 2) but both have serious storytelling flaws, and instead of taking a step back on production they headbutted their way through it and the proof is in the pudding.
    Lasseter may have been a breath of fresh air when he first walked back through the doors of Disney, but he's been shut up in the offices of all the other higher-ups long enough that he's almost become indistinguishable between the suits running the company outside of his trademark hawaiian shirts.

    He will of course have his hands in any Pixar production, as he should, but as long as he's not in a lead creative position I feel pretty good about them. And from what I understand each of these films are someone elses passions, which doesn't ensure they'll be good either, but I feel much better about their chances.

    What's the story telling flaw in the first cars?

    The biggest flaw is all the questions they never bother to ask or answer.

    Where do the cars come from, because I'm given the impression there are no kids in the world of Cars? What then was McQueen doing before his rookie season? Did he just come into existence one day and hit the race track? I'd really like to know his backstory. It would really help me care about him more. But I don't feel like he has one.

    There's a bunch of other questions I have, but most of them are nitpicky, and I actually really enjoy the movie, so I'll spare you.

    I don't expect a kids movie to think about all of those elements of the story, but I don't expect Pixar to make "kids movies".

    Re: Another Disney Pixar Sequel

    Seems a bit nitpicky...

    But, thanks for the explanation.

    I think it told a wonderful story. With all the positive messages, the background of the characters really didn't matter to me.

    Where did Mike and Sully come from? Did it really matter?

    We were also given clues about their backstory in the first film, which the new film seems to completely ignore for the most part.

    Re: Another Disney Pixar Sequel

    Yeah, but my point is, did it make the story flawed in that case as well?

    I mean, we're talking about fantastical monsters and sentient cars. You had the sequence where they told the backstory of Radiator Springs, and the most important aspect of McQueen wasn't where he came from, but the transformation he made in his personality and priorities.

    [

    I have trouble putting Pixar films into the worst-to-best list. After the original Toy Story, or maybe everything outside of that series, to me those films are mainly worst-to-least-painful to watch. I guess I'd have to put Incredibles dead last. Too long, too thrown together, etc.

    But as far as Monsters, Inc, you're right Scott. I don't much care about Mike or Sully as characters, so not knowing who they are or how they met doesn't make much difference. Why couldn't they have just met at work like everyone else? Is it really important to the story that they knew each other before work? Not at all.
