🚨 URGENT: Mere Orthodoxy Needs YOUR Help

Toy Story 3(?)

After bawling my way through Pixar’s UP, I began to wonder if the Establishment could do wrong.

Walt Disney is dead and with him, the best of American entertainment, for young or old.

When the Disney Borg bought Pixar in 2006,  my heart skipped a beat: more money, fine and good. But will the cold, cruel, “rapacious, soul-less” hands of Disney we came to fear during the Eisner Era choke the tender sapling of Lasseter’s imagination?

Ratatouille, Wall-E, and Up later, the public heaved a sigh of relief. Eisner’s conscience-free-vortex-of-greed was gone, and Lasseter had creative control.

But can they overcome the second peak of Parnassus — the Disney Sucky Sequel blues?

I haven’t seen Toy Story 3 yet. Going on Wednesday… Rotton Tomatoes says Yes.

What do you say?
