I typically preface reviews of Pixar films with a disclaimer stating that, while I admire their consistently engaging and often groundbreaking work, I do not share the majority opinion that they are the end-all and be-all of contemporary animated entertainment.

It’s unfortunate that I must play the role of curmudgeon to temper expectations, but you know I speak the truth. They have had their share of masterstrokes (the “Toy Story” trilogy, “Finding Nemo” and “Up” all qualify as truly great films), but they’ve also had some borderline misfires (“Cars” and “Cars 2,” anyone?), and I’ve always been wary of the idea that a new Pixar release is cause for immediate and unbridled celebration.
