Remember when Pixar used to mean “pick of the litter” or “exception to the rule”? To me animated family-trade movies are a form of Orwellian horror. The oppressive sameness, the regimented “up” attitude, and the skin-deep humor perfectly express the bloodless corporate mentality behind them. These movies are cash cows, but the trick is to avoid making a parent-punisher. Monsters University (Disney, 6.21) looks like a parental torture device.
