very surprised by the low user rating on Rotten Tomatoes


Movie was funny and precious.

The critics' rating is spot-on.

I usually take it as a red flag when the user rating is significantly lower than the critics', but in this case it's just totally off.

I think we are just starting to see the real backlash to sequel and reboot overkill. When Solo,a Star Wars movie, comes in 20th in global tickets sales, it means something. People want to be surprised and see something new. I like this better than Incredibles 2, but still caught myself wishing it would wrap up.

Well, hey, I for one can't wait for Toy Story 4. :)

Me either, I thought the teaser was fun. That might be the best animated film series ever, so thats going to do really well. There are definite indications of first time on screen characters having a bigger draw. The black panther and Venom movie flew past expectations. A lot or sequels and reboots just aren't living up to expectations. I want to see another original idea like Up or Wall-E were, things that are completely new. I guess the Dumbo reboot will say a lot.

Why is it only Disney that catches flack for sequels, though? I hardly ever see the same people complaining about those crap-factories of Illumination and DreamWorks that seem to make a sequel for every one of their films.

I mean...Sing 2? Trolls 2?

At least Disney makes sequels to films that were great in the first place

Not just Disney,but I don't think people expect much out of Ice age 14,or whatever they are up to. I was pointing out how the mega studio that is Disney is having problems getting people in the seats, so it's to be expected from other studios. The sequel backlash will hit everyone eventually.

It is baffling but then again...there are a lot of idiots out there.

Illumination has yet to make a great film...or even a really good one but they routinely clean up at the box office. Look how The Grinch totally trounced Ralph Breaks the Internet this holiday season. Domestically, it grossed almost 100 million dollars more!

Sometimes I think Disney's animated films are too intelligent for their own good and they are throwing pearls before the swine.

Two Christmases ago Illumination's Sing! beat Disney's Moana. Just let THAT sink in for a minute.

Globally, Moana beat sing, and they were very close domestically. Both did pretty well to be fair.
