So many non family board questions I could ask you.
Yeah, pretty much. I enjoyed it, as I loved the original, but it was clearly a step down from usual Pixar fare.
I really enjoyed the soundtrack for some reason, and Randy Newman composed it (although I don't recall him singing anything).
Pixar, sadly, seems to be on the decline. Cars 2 was an abomination - my kids, diehard fans to this day of the first film, didn't really like it on release. They like it a bit more after re-watching it, but it was largely garbage. Brave was OK, but had a Dreamworks Animation feel to it (not a bad thing, just not great).
As much as I like to revisit old characters (an Incredibles sequel would be excellent, as would a Toy Story 4), I think Pixar needs to focus on telling new stories. Regurgitation doesn't suit their brand, so to speak.
