It's hard to believe Pixar's founder would have signed off on this project. The film is as overcomplicated, bloated and crash-prone as a bad-old-days Microsoft release.
What does Pixar have to do with any of this? It's a Disney film, not Pixar.

It's directed by Andrew Stanton, one of Pixar's main men, he directed Wall-E and Fiinding Nemo, he's also someone who should have known better than to get involved with this movie.

The books were fun and I might find this to be a mixed bag that at least won't leave me bored. I agree with Nathan, especially since Pulizter Prize and Hugo award winner, Michael Chabon was also involved. If only Disney can think less about conquering Hollywood and more about allowing some intelligence into their future projects.

The film ends with a dedication "to Steve Jobs, an inspiration to us all" noted at the beginning of this review.

yup. Can't imagine Steve Jobs being too happy about this at all. He wouldn't have even liked the poorly designed poster. Now, as far as a pixar guy knowing better... why is it such a wonder to everyone than a pixar guy would produce such a flop of a live action movie? I guess it's not that easy when you stray from the comforts of the pixar formula and 100% control over everything that 100% CGI allows. There is no way he could have known better... this whole mess was just a bad mixup of egos. We can't go wrong with 250 million and a Pixar genius.... right??

Better than any Pixar film.

That's funny because I just read a reviewer say it wasn't complicated enough.
Frankly, I blame Sponge Bob. Clearly people don't have the ability to pay attention to what they see before their eyes. But you're sort of an older looking gentlemen so a lack of an attention span can't be blamed on a yellow cartoon character.
