Oh good. Another preachy Disney Movie

June 25, 2011

The Wall Street Journal has this interview with Cars 2 director John Lasseter. He states that the sequal to the hugely successful Cars will have ‘Big Oil’ as the bad guy. He states as he developed the plot, he kept thinking:

What would be a really good kind of über bad guy? Who is an über bad guy?” I kept going to big oil. This is before what happened in the Gulf of Mexico.

Really? Big Oil is the ‘uber bad guy’? Are they forcing people to buy gas? Capitalism is nice because no one is forced to do anything. If you don’t like oil stop using it. Or at least cut back. This is like me saying that ‘Big Chocolate’ is evil because I eat too many candy bars. No. Hershy’s is not the problem; I am.  Let’s stop blaming people for selling stuff.

Disney is a good example of not having to buy stuff you don’t like. When Disney was selling movies like ‘Snow White’ everyone loved them. Then they started selling preachy movies that made over 50% of their audience uncomfortable (like Pocahontas and Brother Bear) and suddenly they couldn’t get people to show up to their movies anymore. Then along came Pixar and had good (non preachy) movies that people loved. Then Disney bought Pixar and we are back to preachy. Hmmm. Big Hollywood is at it again. But I won’t call them uber bad guys. I will just probably will wait until this one comes out on Netflix.

I hear the non-Disney Kung Fu Panda 2 is pretty good.

While they tasted better going down, the results (or lack thereof) were the same v3 diet pills amazon By employing stretches that involve several muscle groups to work collectively, the intensity of the workout consequently boost up as well, forcing the anterior pituitary gland to concern more growth hormone to compensate for the added effort.
