I don't think it'll be too terrible.
Maybe that's optimistic, but Disney and Lucasfilm must know how skeptical a lot of people are about more Star Wars, so they've got to be treading carefully here.
I'm not a Star Wars fan, so I'm not very knowledgeable on these subjects. But if this whole thing goes up in flames, I don't think it'll be a big fire.

So Pixar didn't take all that long to break their promise of focusing on original ideas instead of sequels/prequels...

I know they have one or two original ideas coming up, but other than that, The Incredibles 2, Finding Dory, Cars 3, you get the picture... roll eyes

I'm not the only one here who's tired of sequels, am I?
If the plan was to only have one movie--and the movie was published with no further plans being made--it's done, and shouldn't be expanded upon.
There are a few exceptions, but none that I can think of on the top of my head.
Also, It's A Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story. (Haven't checked many sources, don't know how reliable the information is.)

I don't have problems with sequels when a) there's a major public demand, and b) they've been given time to make it into a decent movie. Anchorman is a good example. Cars is not.

And I agree that it's saddening that Pixar are just saying 'fuck it' and making sequels. I'm gonna go ahead and blame Disney. I don't care how much it actually is their fault.

This gives me a happyface. Not so much Cars 3, but Cars 2 was an enormous improvement upon the original, so who knows?

Cars is one of my favourite Pixar movies. I don't understand why it is so unpopular with so many people.

Even so I'm not overly confident that Cars 3 will be an improvement on Cars 2. Still I would be happy to be proved wrong.

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

Cars was decent but cars2  was pretty bad, so I have little faith for cars 3
Finding Nemo was fantastic, but it doesn't really warrant a sequel.
The Incredibles has needed a sequel all along, so I am very excited for the sequel.

Pixar seems to be running out of their creative juices, whereas Disney are getting back on top.

Mind explaining why Cars was one of your favorites? As for why it's unpopular, I don't think people necessarily hated it (can't speak for the sequel, though), but it's viewed as one of the worst as it had one of the least original premises and most formulaic storylines of any of the Pixar movies. It suffers in comparison to their much more substantial works.

One or two pretty good movies doesn't necessarily mean they're "getting on top." Frozen was good but it still doesn't match any of Pixar's hits.


Seriously though, can a mod merge the threads?

Edit: Nicely done.

I think The Incredibles is the most sequel-worthy of all the Pixar franchises, and I'm definitely looking foward to this... But, come on now, nothing ever needs a sequel. Unless it ends on a cliffhanger or something.

It suffers in comparison to their much more substantial works.

I wouldn't personally call Cars one of my favourites, but I still enjoyed it immensely (and the sequel, for that matter). Most of the criticism I see seems to be directed at the concept, since the whole "world populated by nothing but sentient vehicles" thing is pretty dumb on paper, and I suppose makes it feel more like a kids' film as opposed to a family film. I just put that out of my mind when I watch it, and let myself be delighted by the film for what it is. Neither Cars nor Cars 2 are "bad" films by any means, they're just less sophisticated than some of Pixar's other work. I still don't understand why everyone seems to shit all them, though.

And, let's be fair - MOST Pixar films have pretty formulaic plots...

I haven't seen Frozen, but Wreck-it Ralph was pretty great. Though, like Josh said, it's a bit of a steep conclusion to jump to. My two favourite Pixar films (Up and Toy Story 3) both came out in the last five years, and though more recent efforts like Brave and Monsters University haven't exactly been landmarks of cinema, they're still damn good. Fuck, Pixar have 14 films under their belt and haven't even come close to a single dud yet. Unlike Disney, whose hit-to-miss ratio is atrocious, save from the occasional gem.

That was my main problem with the first film; the complete lack of biological creatures was so jarring. The sequel, however, fleshed out the world with enough detail and background that I was able to appreciate the story much more.

I haven't seen Frozen [...]

It contains one of the most heartbreaking yet simultaneously uplifting scenes in Disney history. I would definitely say it is better than Cars. Arguably, I would say it is even better than Tangled, simply by virtue of actually being close to being an actual musical.

I get annoyed when people think that adding a few songs to a film is all that's necessary to make it a musical.

Eh. Frozen might be a better musical because it has more songs and it does a good job of having those songs really resonate with the characterization of Anna and Elsa better than any of their dialogue does, but Tangled has a much tighter and better script. And the songs aren't necessary but I like them.

For me it's like "Let It Go" - A+. The rest of the movie B/B-.

Well, there's barely a plot in the first one, some cops vs bad guys, only two main guys really, (only one of which I see in the new one), but it looks a bit more plottey this time.

What does everyone think of the new Michael Bay TMNT?
I'm actually surprised that it hasn't been brought up yet.

I'm not a big fan of their faces at all.  I think that this movie might be okay, but I'm really just going to wait until I eventually see it to really comment.

I thought the trailer looked more interesting than I expected, and the CGI turtles looked better in action than in the released pictures. I still think the movie will turn out to be a pile of shit though.

I don't doubt it won't be an entertaining pile of shit which is what all the Transformer movies are. It makes me sad to say that I'd watch it out of sheer curiosity and "for the lulz" but I don't feel too bad since now that I work at a movie theater I can see movies for free so it's not like they'd be making money off of me. Take that Bay!

Presumably it's because Will Smith doesn't want to do it for less money than it will cost him to buy himself, his wife, and his no-talent, idiot, son superyachts with matching personal helicopters.

That's really the only logical obstacle at this point.

So a Doctor Strange movie has just been announced, with Scott Derrickson directing.

This almost makes up for Edgar Wright abandoning Ant-Man, which had me reeling. Not that Derrickson is an amazing director (although Sinister was undeniably creepy), but adding Doctor Strange to the roster means the MCU is about to get a whole lot weirder...and weird is always good.
