I know a lot of people had issues with Brave, but Wreck-It Ralph? Seriously? It was cute and had funny bits, but it was so cookie-cutter, and the story was an incomprehensible mess.

I honestly believe that the biggest factor of why our generation even cares about the movie is all the pandering '90s kid nostalgia. It's the Buzzfeed of movies.

I liked the three, but ended up voting for Ralph because it was the most touching to me. Nostalgia is actually a part of its main themes. And I don't think I understand what was so incomprehensible about it.

I also need an explanation for the simultaneous uses of "cookie-cutter" and "incomprehensible".
Since dreams are to align, not to change nor
to grow, whatever are the really for?

Wreck-It-Ralph was good but not as awesome as everyone said it would be. I appreciated all the little videogame segments.

Brave had heart like any good Pixar film should but it suffered severely in the world-building aspect that Pixar usually excels at. The story wasn't entirely satisfying either. But it was good.
