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?
