    I feel like Disney is just doing stuff that they know will bank hard.

    They've got their Marvel movies scheduled. They have their Star Wars scheduled and the Pixar is just more icing. No cake, just all icing. In 2017 they'll probably be the first studio to cash in 3 Billion.

    A Toy Story 4 being co-written by Rashida Jones is the sort of weird thing I'd hazily dream and then wake up wondering where it came from in my subconscious.

    But whaddya know: It's real and only two and a half years away.

    How can the RAID copy Dredd when it was released 6 months prior?

    I liked this and agree with most of the points you make about Dredd. It's a bit of a shell game now because studios are desperate to get people into theaters. They will try any trick that might work.

    I almost feel Frozen is a different beast, because that was a billion dollar movie and this is Disney we're talking about. They're in the toy business, not the movie business. There was no way (oh god forgive me for my puns) they were just going to ... Let it go.

    Today's Frozen and Star Wars announcements came from Disney's shareholders meeting. That should tell you everything you need to know about these movies.

    Can't speak for TGM, but I'm guessing he meant the comic. 2000AD goes back to the 70s, iirc.

    Dredd completed filming before The Raid began. The Raid just released first.

    Oh yeah, believe me, I totally understand the business reasons behind moving forward with this release, and I'm honestly not at all surprised by the announcement. Still, though I do hold hope that it'll turn out good in the end anyways, thinking purely from an artistic standout (which, admittedly, is a ridiculous stance to take in this particular regard), I still can't help but feel it unnecessary. :P

    That said, interestingly enough, assuming it's released by Disney Animation Studios, it'll mark only the second time an official canonical sequel has been released by the studio, the only other example being The Rescuers Down Under. (Unless of course the 2011 Winnie the Pooh counts as a sequel, in which case Frozen is still only the third.)

    So Inside Out is getting outstanding return-to-form reviews. Best Pixar since Up they are saying.

    So when can I expect Spinal to hate this and crush my dreams?
    Sure why not?

    I just got back from an advanced screening. I need to let it sink in a bit, but i think this is top tier Pixar. It belongs next to Wall*E and Ratatouille.

    The script is brilliant. Giacchino's score is wonderful, and the voice performances are fantastic, especially Richard Kind, who voices Riley's childhood imaginary friend Bing Bong.

    Once its out and has a real thread, i'll talk about it more, but after some less than stellar (though not necessarily bad) films, Pixar's back in a HUGE way.

    I read this somewhere:

    Pixar...

    What if toys had emotions? Toy Story!
    What if cars had emotions? Cars!
    What if emotions had emotions? Inside Out!

    That's high praise.

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    full trailer, looks beautiful, the cartoony characters against the realistic backdrops bothered me a bit but now I kinda like it.
