I always assume in Justice League, I assumed all the humor was Joss Whedon but apparently the scene with the flash doodling on that jerk’s face was Snyder’s doing. I heard they’re thinking of doing Flashpoint for the Flash movie. I don’t know if that’s still a thing, but I would love it as it’s one of my favorite comics. Perhaps, because they already did a cartoon, they won’t bother.
I really don’t see much competition between the Disney and Pixar movies. I haven’t had a bad time with any of them. Zootopia was something special, as was Big Hero 6. Moana, fantastic. Coco, wonderful. Inside Out, superb. Brave, outstanding.
Okay, I’m not a huge fan of The Good Dinosaur. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it, I just remember the magic of The Land Before Time when I was younger and I didn’t get that same buzz off it.
Neither company has made any major missteps that I can see. Some of the movies you could perhaps say were formulaic, but they all have some wonderful elements that make them special. Zootopia, I think it’s only weakness is the ‘in your face’ social commentary. I don’t think the script - from the dialogue to the plot - were exactly screenwriting 101, but whoever wrote in that allegory needs a lesson in subtlety.
