    Interesting “Is the film recommendable? Absolutely” – how a movie YOU recommend get a rotten score – really.

      This one I’ll respond to, because it gets to the “Fresh/Rotten” system, which can be rough. In the same way that Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert were regularly frustrated with their own “Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down” system, because it was so black and white. There were times when they were pretty hard on a movie, but would give it a “marginal” thumbs up. Similarly, there would be a movie that they thought was pretty good, but couldn’t quite give it a positive notice.
      There was a lot of good stuff about TOY STORY 4. I have no doubt that people will probably enjoy it. However, I left the film with a dissatisfied feeling. I decided to follow that feeling while still acknowledging that the film could be a good time for audiences. To me, the issue is that the film is ultimately forgettable, which is a pretty big deal for a franchise as resonant and memorable as this. And it was hard to think of the film outside of the franchise that it’s a part of.
      So, for that reason, I think of the film more negatively than positively, and gave it a rotten rating. If that keeps it from having a 100% rating, so be it. I’m sure Pixar will be just fine without it.

    You fucking have it a bad review on purpose just to fuck up the perfect 100% fresh score if achieved.

      yea you’re probably right. it’s all part of his master plan to ruin some movie’s perfect rt score as if that matters one fucking iota. God damn idiot

  6. Ben says:

    Why do people care so much about a rt score? It’s kind of pathetic

  7. Ben says:

    “Is the film recommendable? Absolutely. It features dazzling animation and entertaining setpieces. And it is by far the flat-out funniest of the series.”
    *gives it a rotten rating*
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    This guy is a hater troll

    I’ve seen your reply but it still doesn’t make sense to me. I don’t understand the logic of vehemently recommending a film (“Is the film recommendable? Absolutely”) even though you think of it “negatively”. It’s contradictory.

    • Battleship Pretension says:

      I probably shouldn’t have written “Absolutely” there. That seems much more positive than I meant for it to. I would change it to something less, well, absolute, but people have referenced it in the comments, so I’m keeping it.
      Ultimately what I’m trying to say is that the film is pleasant enough, but forgettable.

    Great review! The truth about this sequel need to be said.

  13. David says:

    Extremely well written and explanatory review. The movie was very underwhelming, especially when you consider how one might go in with high expectations. I am sorry you recieved many uncivil comments, pay no mind to them. Keep up the great work Tyler. Thank you!

    Toy Story 4 might not have a perfect tomato score but it’s got 5 out of 5 pumpkins !

    A solid review that pretty much nails my problems with the film. Why continue with a franchise that had such a wonderful, definitive send off?
