It's a new, original Pixar film! And I really wanted to love it, but... I didn't. The culprit is main characters who are, by definition, one emotion, and the requirements of staying within one massive--but shaky--metaphor, which crowds out necessary time to develop other elements, and draws too much attention to itself and how well it works, or doesn't work. It's still better than most things, but only "pretty good" can still be a disappointment.

I think you really understand what makes a movie work and why, and you communicate it so well. Your unabashedly homocentric view has helped me see so many of the movies I've loved forever in a new light.
