Imagine being so dead on the inside and poisoned by years of irony posting about animated movies online, that the only thing you took away from a touching animated story was "it had elves or some poo poo"

Incredibly formulaic, boring, tiresome, and unmemorable. It's already lined up next to The Good Dinosaur for movies people forgot happened. I bet 95% of the people who saw it can't remember the older brothers name without looking it up.

I mean it also has the genuine misfortune of being released very shortly before the entire country shut down entirely due to a massive pandemic. It's kind of hard for any movie to gain memorable brainspace after that. God knows I watched some stuff and I couldn't tell you what, even though some of it was extremely good. (I can remember The Invisible Man at least!)

I did indeed. Both that he appears visible in the movie for brief periods and that I enjoyed watching it.

I didn't see Onward but I think that is because the last Pixar movie I watched was Coco? I haven't even see Inside Out.

His name is Barley Lightfoot.

I haven't even seen the movie.

Also this is pretty drat accurate. I'm sure 95% of people don't give a poo poo about any movie right now, unless they saw it at home on VOD. Even then, no one's gushing over Trolls or Scoob! even though Trolls did so well that AMC refuses to show Universal movies anymore.

I dunno, I have the opposite experience from the last couple movies I saw in theatres before the world ended (The Invisible Man, The Lodge). I remember every second of those movies. God I miss going to movies.

i'm just quoting a tumblr user who said (paraphrased) "this is the perfect bait because it's close enough to true to be hilariously insulting while also requiring sufficient knowledge of the source material to both see the similarities and understand why it's different"

Legit. I haven't seen the Bumper, but this tribute they did for Disneyland's Haunted Mansion is phenomenal.

The animation in Meet The Robinsons is so floaty. None of the characters seem to hold on or snap to any key frames. The animation feels really... vague
