>They found a way to continue to milk toy story after ending it with 4
Why is the trailer so "cinematic"? It feels more aimed to adults than kids.
The director is Angus MacLane which is known for animating a bunch of pixar films and co-directing Finding Dory. I haven't watched that though so I don't know if it's good or not.
It reminds me as well that buzz lightyear of star command exist but I haven't watched that either.

I never understood the hype Toy Story has for some people. It was just one of many okeyish kid movies during a time when we had lots of them. There was a lot of wank about it being an animated movies back then, but at that time I had seen better being done in video games.

my review of all recent pixar movie:
Toy Story 3: nostalgia bait
Cars 2: Why?
Brave: ZZZ
Monsters University: interesting concept but totally unmemorable and boring
Inside Out: stupid
The Good Dinosaur: no one even watched this one
Finding Dory: has some nice visuals but otherwise stupid
Cars 3: maliciously anti-white and anti-male
Coco: Viva la raza
Incredibles 2: maliciously anti-male
Toy Story 4: maliciously anti-white and anti-male
Onward: fun but contrived little D&D-inspired comedy story
Soul: George Floyd
Luca: movie about male wop mermaids, didn't watch

reminder that they fired tim allen from voicing buzz lightyear every again because he said he didn't hate trump

It looks like that because it is, in some amount, aimed at adults. Now that many parents are basically children, the model is to cast a net of nostalgia so that they'll come and bring their children, who will hopefully become attached to the franchise. If they were trying to make something closer to the established canon that would attract children on its own, a reboot of the Buzz Lightyear cartoon would have worked far better. This is meant to work in tandem with the other model which works off the same principle and to the same end but uses "live action" remakes because the average person doesn't understand what good animation is.
There was one other white, but it was fat.

Sorry to reply so late. I had misplaced the machine I access this site through.
It is in fact subtitled. I looked them up and they aren't too expensive to get in USA ebay.

>at 2% you're saying a VHS can only be watched 50 times until it is pure static
I think he meant something more like "The first time it's 98% in quality, then it's 96.04%," etc. This is an exponential decay function. This means that at 50 watches it'd be at about 36% quality (not 0), at 100 watches it's at around 13%. I'm not exactly sure when "unwatchable" would hit but I think it's safe to say it's probably hit by the time we hit 228 watches with less than 1 quality. The function doesn't describe other kinds of damage but technically speaking you could have an infinitesimally small amount of "quality" left no matter what. Though, I suppose if the "quality" got so low that it didn't even represent enough data to properly display one singular pixel then you could just "round" and say the tape was fucked and nothing of the original film remained.
I'm no VHS expert but I reckon the decay is from destructive reading so there's nothing to do except heed Mr. 672.

Very happy about this one, didn't think they'd release it on VHS or really anything other than the internet. As far as I understand from reading about it, it's some band that went on a random NYC subway station and played a set amps & all. It could be the train, I'm not sure. Haven't read about it in a while, grabbed it as soon as I saw it up having remembered the name. Just got it, gonna watch tonight. Music I doubt anyone here would like but that doesn't really matter.

Just watched the first two episodes of this thing.
Why do all cartoon characters for children have to be loud and annoying now?
Did this people even bother watching a 20s cartoon? The whole point is that old cartoons barely spoke coherent english and relied on body language to tell the story.
These daffy cunts never shut the fuck up. Even Popeye and Bugs Bunny didn't talk as much and as loudly as them.
The animations is nice and the backgrounds great but the plot is the most generic and bland shit. They never take advantage of being based on old animation.

what makes good, top grossing movies that sells to millions of people?
1. People who want to actually see movies and have the budget to buy movies.
2. The opportunity of having very little competition. Hollywood only grew so big, because all other movie producing countries were in ruins thanks to WW2.
3. A spectacle that dosn't alienate the people. People want to see something interesting that allows them to escape their lives for a moment. When you start to insult them, they will only remember you as a time waster and not recommend you. 
4. Quality of production. The best story is nothing if you don't have the skill, effects and actors to pull it off and the best actors, skills and effects are worthless if your story is shit.

What have you been watching?
Since It's almost Christmas I watched Tokyo Godfathers recently. I also watched Batman Ninja. Both pretty good films.
I'm thinking of going back to finish all of the Ghibli films too. Speaking of which, what is your favorite of them? Mine is Grave of the Fireflies.
Not movies but I also started re-watching DBZ and Mobile Suit Gundam.

Just watched this with family the other night. It's a good story, and the production quality is decent. Some really nice shots, and good honorabu roman characters. It's definitely not a masterpiece, but I was surprised to see it received staggeringly poor reviews. Why did people not like this film? It certainly wasn't worse than [current year] dogshit.

In terms of animated movies.  Both anime and western had its peak on the late 80's and 90's. Everything afterwards went downhill and I doubt It will ever shine like it used to. 
Films like Tarzan have yet to be surpassed in terms of body language and fluidity in animation and anime movies nowadays don't hold a candle to Ghibli's works and Akira.
Replies: >>723
What this fag >>722 said. Late 80s/90s is peak anime. The cutoff isn't really 2000 but more or less whenever a studio switched to fully digital animation tools.
One of the late exceptions would be REDLINE, being completely hand drawn. And it shows but then they also spent 7 years on it so maybe it shouldn't even count as an exception, starting before everyone had gone digital
If you like the GitS film you should watch Patlabor 2 the Movie. Directed by the same fag, it's basically proto-GitS.

Last decade was a giant ocean of putrid shit. But every now and then a good film would pop out. Let's talk about them.
Off the top of my head:
>Mad Max: Fury Road
>Hardcore Henry
>Ford v. Ferrari
>Blade Runner 2049
>Toy Story 3
>John Wick
I heard Birdman and the Hara-Kiri remake are good but I haven't seen them yet.

>popcorn flick fun but that's it
Do the John Wick movies claim to be anything else?  I haven't seen them myself but I'm always skeptical of this style of criticism.

I often see this term used to discredit movies and games, but rarely explained.  Why does a movie having a story similar to another one instantly mean it's worth discarding?
>well if they couldn't come up with a novel story then they shouldn't have made the film
Sure, but you should understand that there are plenty of character beats and comedy/action scenes in Toy Story 3 that make the film worth watching, even if the story itself is nothing new.  Considering the huge gap between 2 and 3 (1999-2010), I think it's fine for the director/producers to make a similar product to "remind" people about the characters and premise.
>but that's such a corporate way to think
It is, but any piece of art that is being sold needs to pay the piper, so to speak.  There are lots of beautiful, heartfelt films and works of art that never see success because they don't have a huge marketing budget or because they're too different from the audience's frame of reference.  Creating a large-scale animated film like Toy Story 3 requires that it is at least partially made to sell.
