Pixar's Lightyear - just to be clear, this isn’t Buzz Lightyear the toy. This is the origin story of the human Buzz Lightyear that the toy is based on

Bo Peep was a comely young woman and not without prospects. Therefore it was heartbreaking to her mother that she would enter into marriage with Woody Pride, a known thief and murderer, a man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition. When she died, it was not by his hands as her mother might have expected, but of smallpox. That was 1878.

Wouldn’t mind a gritty Pixar western called Woody in a few years either.

 

I hadn't thought of that, yeah that's totally going to happen isn't it.

This is going to be a rip off of Buck Rogers, isn’t it?

 

Buzz Lightyear, a gulf war fighter pilot, now astronaut in 1995, tests a new light space capable ship, but after saying “to infinity… and beyond” before pressing that big red button, ends up in a wormhole and spends a year “marooned on this planet” (either an alternative universe earth, or earth in the future) trying to get his light space engine working again.

 

Meanwhile, back on earth in 1995, Buzz becomes a world hero, thought to be lost forever, the world grieves and kids everywhere buy a toy replica of him… only for Buzz to return in the year 2022, where his return is watched by a grown up Andy, clutching to his Buzz Lightyear toy, tears streaming down his eyes…

 

But honestly, it’s not this..

Wait, why is this older Andy?

Why has he the aliens?

 

Also: That's some bad photoshopping text.

 

Look at Andy and his white privilege, taking two empty seats with his toys. Grow up Andy.

Looks like Mr and Mrs Potato Head decided to stay at home for some quality spud time.

I would if I had a winner like Mrs Potato.

Saw this today. It’s action packed, but lacks any real humour and fun. 


Kids and I got bored at a couple of points. 
 

6/10

 

That's cash-ins for ya.

Is it suitable for a 6 year old would you say?

Wearing a fucking hat in the cinema is surely the biggest crime.

It is quite dark. So I’d avoid if they are prone to nightmares. 

 

I wouldn't call it a dark film, at all. We took our six-year-old yesterday and she was laughing throughout. She does have an odd sense of humour though.

 

A few very slightly spoilery details about content:

 

Spoiler

Plenty of 'mild peril', but all the threats are largely ineffectual. Mostly large robots that shoot lasers but nobody ever gets hurt.

 

A character dies of old age, but we don't spend a lot of time with them beforehand, and it isn't dwelt on for very long. They are very quickly 'replaced'. We are told the character has led a long and happy life.

 

A creepy-looking robot cat gets squashed, but it happens very quickly and is immediately forgotten about.

 

The ending is very positive and hopeful. Aside from the character death mentioned earlier, there's no classic Pixar tear-jerker moment.

Apparently this doing none too hot at the box office.

Well, this wasn’t suppose to happen. Disney’s Lightyear, despite an A- CinemaScore and 4 stars/85% positive on PostTrak, is coming in way under its $70M-$85M projection, with a $51M-$55M 3-day weekend to Universal/Amblin’s second weekend of Jurassic World Dominion with $57.1M, -61%. Jurassic could even reach $66.3M through the four-day Juneteenth holiday.

It feels like a spin-off too far to me personally, much like Solo was for Star Wars - a story nobody asked for, or wanted. That’s why I’m not in any rush to see it, I wonder if other people feel the same.

Thanks guys.  I went today with my 6 year old and he loved it and I enjoyed it too.  Not sure it's a film I'd go back and watch again but I did like the comedy robot cat sidekick!

 

Slightly put off by the numpty dad of the year behind who slept and snored through it, didn't wake to take his little girl to the toilet after she asked multiple times oh and at the end proclaimed to his kids (who weren't old), that was a bit shit wasn't it🤨.
