Yes, I know this is, in fact, completely awesome news. So why am I annoyed?
Because apparently nobody noticed the other movie that was announced. That would be Cars 3.
Look, I’m as big a fan of Pixar as anyone but are we not concerned that they are making a sequel to the film that is arguably their worst movie to date? I know that the Cars franchise has made Disney and Pixar countless millions in merchandise and that is why a third film was inevitable.
But can I be a little upset that all Pixar is producing these days is sequels? I want more movies like Up and WALL-E. It’s great that Pixar has found ways to mine the existing universes they have created and I’ve been waiting for a sequel to The Incredibles for a long time.
How about a sequel every other year, Pixar? How about that?
As a geek, I like shiny new geek stuff as much as the next guy. As such, it is easy to declare The Avengers the best super hero movie ever because it is an amazing film.
No doubt, the arguments will then erupt around how I could have forgotten The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 2, Iron Man and possibly even Captain America.
Yes, yes. Those are all fine movies. I enjoy them all.
