DikPix : fuck you you english piece of shit. My videos are much better than yours you beef boi. Coco is a masterpiece, better than shitty monsters shit. How dare you judge Incredibles 2 before even seeing it. I saw it and it's also a masterpiece - better than the original even. Keep your stupid phlegmy fingers out of my Pixar and stop being a blatant Cuck.

24 Frames Of Nick : I always forget about the existence of The Good Dinosaur

DrogaDigital : I agree with most of the things you explained, but when you reached the part about Coco, you messed up big time... I understand the scrutiny you were expecting, but also makes evident the lack of knowledge you have about Mexican culture and Mexican family values, yes, believe it or not families are a unit, not like in the us where Individuals are nothing but individuals, in Mexican values you're never only yourself and family it's gonna be there whether you like it or not for good or wrong, so I also can tell that your criticism of this movie it's just due to ignorance, not in film directing but in therms of a foreign culture and values. Cheers.

Mortebianca : >laments for lack of "Scenes that are not Strictly necessary" in Inside Out >Bashes Coco for making a scene that is not strictly necessary in Coco. This video is a mess. The name of the channel, NitPix, summarisez it all: Nitpicking and finding problems for the sake of doing so, ignoring good parts and, if necessary, make up hairs in the egg to find and "debunk".

Thanoseph : So you like the childrens movies from your childhood more than you like the children’s movie from your adulthood. Hmmmmm 🤔

Mayte Álvarez : You lost my credibility when you gave Bugs Life a pass but you called both Coco and Inside Out "only appeling to children" when i have seen adults and children alike praising both movies and reallt enjoying them. Imo Bugs Life is one of Pixars most forgetable and weak movies, i legit cant remeber the names of any of the main bugs characters and im sure you cant either lol

Amanda the Jedi : I was fine with Toy Story 3... but dear god why Toy Story 4

Allan Luna : I'm so sorry, but honestly, while the first half of the video seems perfectly on track, mentioning and listing Pixar's growth both in storytelling as well as fighting to gain its creative independence and breaking technical barriers; the second half feels rather snobby. Cause let's be honest here, if you put the SAME scrutiny you're putting upon films like Coco and Inside Out, really none of their other films will hold up (as you mention). Coco is, by far, one of Pixar's most compelling and visually complex films of all. It's like you're not even aware that putting millions of multicolour light bulbs, as well as clothes and facial expressions to moving skeletons, has been (in words of Pixar's design team) one of their hardest tasks ever, yeah, even harder than putting 430 animated ants in a single frame. They did have to redevelop their animating software and animated techniques in order for a movie like Coco to be technically possible. And that's just the technical part, for you're also entirely overlooking the deeper aspects of the film, such as bringing in an easy/understandable way a really complex cultural tradition to millions of people around the world; one that treats a topic that no many animation studios would be willing to treat so easily, such as death itself.

Gustaff Overshield : 25:07 - Coco takes a lot of risk; it explores the concept of ‘death,’ and more imperatively, it presupposes a specific type of after-life in a way that I’m surprised the devoutly religious didn’t have an issue with. It also gave a relatively detailed analysis of Mexican culture, in one of the most racially divided times - when someone is willing to jump on you for getting the slightest thing wrong, or making something that could be deemed as a ‘stereotype.’ When I actually think about it, in terms of the films philosophical concepts that it explores, I consider it the riskiest film that they’ve ever made, especially with the ending. It wasn’t a technological risk mind you, and maybe that was your point, but I don’t see why that’s necessary. Also, the film implies everyone will eventually die into nothingness when they are forgotten. The plot then ends up centering around a character not meeting this fate, and they have to ensure that a dementia-stricken, dying grandma doesn’t forget her own father. That’s pretty heavy, if you ask me.

WishingPsychic Jirachi : Is pixar alive? Yes.

Pαηdα : im only here to keep it real with you chief but the second part of this video really aint it. if bugs life gets a pass but not coco, then its pretty obvious your nostalgia came into play.

Romulus Numa : Is DikPix dead?

Flat Earth Is the truth : I love how he praises Bug’s Life And then barely skims over Up and Wall-E And then shits on Coco Saying it’s only for kids Even though the movies he liked were released when he was a kid

yuoma : "these movies are good children's movies, but when framed against the iconic films that made us fall in love with pixar..." (that were released when we were children)

SuperMikoo : Alright, I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I actually really enjoyed the cars movies. okay ill leave now.

BlastOff98 : Inside Out and Coco are amazing and sure Monsters University wasn’t as awesome as it should’ve been but it was still a fun film.

Evan : NitPix grew up with Pixar

Mfm ad : Coco was sooo great! What are u taking about ???! Its great story and it was sooo emotional i think it brought pixar back in the game

Gustaff Overshield : 22:50 there is visualization to show that Miguel’s other family members aren’t as passionately against music as Miguel’s grandmother is; when she smashes his guitar, Miguel’s dad reacts in a subtle way that definitely suggests that was overkill. I actually found there was a lot of nuance in all of the character’s traits that the film manages to display in some way, if you pay attention.

kees N1 : Bugs Life over coco?what drugs are you on.

Nobody important : To be honest A Bug's Life wasn't that amazing either. Till Cars, I always thought it was there weakest movie.

Timothy McLean : With all you criticize Disney for not giving Pixar the production freedom they needed to create some of their later great films, it's probably worth emphasizing that Toy Story as we know it would not exist without two rounds of Disney-mandated rewrites. (And from what I've seen, the first drafts wouldn't be that great.)

Patrick Gent : I respect your opinions, but I don’t think Pixar is dead

Shelby Nofer : _Cars_ is a great movie! The characters are memorable and unique; the characters have interesting and changing dynamics; the story has good pacing—nothing is rushed or drawn-out; the visuals are beautiful and flashy; the main theme song, Life Is a Highway, is suitable and catchy for the movie; the comedy is funny; and the story gives good morals for children. What is there to *_not_* like about the movie?

Jonathan Molina : 26:43 video with no ads, am I dreaming? I've watched 5min videos with 4 ads... Thanks Nit

DankMemeKing06 : Does anyone else like the cars series?

TheLonelyGoomba : What a brilliant video. I like it when Youtube actually recommends something deserving of attention

The Australian guy : Cars is the best. My opinion internet.

El1teFire : The opening sequence in Up was so good that it was shown in my writing class for to show what good writing is it was shown in my 7th grade not like I was in college and specializing to become this good writer to make film

Hirogen : I don't see why you're so harsh on Coco, you can enjoy a movie or media in general even if it wasn't made for you. As you say Coco is made for "little little babies" but I found it quite nice to watch even though I'm 20 years old, because I don't scrutinise every piece of media I watch and watch them because I enjoy doing so. If enjoying a movie like Coco makes me a "little little baby" then so be it, because you should be able to watch media without having to critique everything about said media, or compare it to other media.

Adam Zunk : "With Inside Out the world design is so poorly put together, it's near impossible to map out the various locations" There's literally a scene where they look over the world of Riley's head and point out each of the locations as if on a giant map.

Vertigo Gnome : I’m glad you made this video. I know many people with this same mindset and I hope your video doesn’t get scrutinized by die hard fans. I’m a huge fan of Pixar. But the last Pixar movie I really enjoyed was wall-e. Coco was alright but definitely not on the same level as other original Pixar films. I’m so exhausted from movie sequels being shite.

pedro landaverde : Coco was a masterpiece !!!

Nightfall Shadow : I still have never seen finding nemo. But, I think the best pixar movie was Inside out. I gave this video a thumbs down for calling inside out "uninspired". Of course you have to TELL what is going on, otherwise no one would have any idea what is going on. Are we transitioning to another universe? are we in another part of the world? Children especially would have no idea what was going on if nothing was said about where they are and what they are doing. Wall-E was different because we were not dealing with abstract ideas, everything was literal and familiar-whereas with Inside out we are dealing in metaphors and ideas that are not familiar with average everyday life. Also, that control room was COOL! and i LIKED the colorful balls for memories vs dull gray ones for faded memories. A perfect representation between vague memory vs VIVID MEMORIES...dumb ass. You talked about showing with visual representation and you couldn't even get THAT one right? Idiot! OH, and FUCK YOU FOR NOT MENTIONING HER IMAGINARY CHARACTERS DEATH!

TheLongIslander : I don't get what is wrong with Cars? Sure, Cars 2 was plain AWFUL, but the original was great! Maybe I have a sweet spot for Cars (it was the movie I grew up with), but still, it isn't THAT bad. It's definitely better compared to the newer movies.

Marwig20 : Cars is a really good movie! Why do people not like it?

LittleMissLounge : You touch on it at the end, but why didn't you wait until you saw The Incredibles 2 to do this video? No judgment, I just find that to be an interesting choice.

Grégory Cogels : after seeing the entire video, i completely disagree with what you say

vi 360 : Wow. You are just wrong about everything! NitPix is dead. All that matters is... were you entertained. By the way, using the F word once and a while does not make you smart or sound intelligent.

Dino Spumoni : _Monsters, Inc._ is better than _The Shawshank Redemption._

MrTheharryson : I’m gonna be honest, I actually really loved Inside Out. I get that you didn’t enjoy it as much or believe that it didn’t really live up to Pixar’s “glory days,” but I believe it revived Pixar. I brought my little sister to this movie and I have to admit, it hit me hard. I felt like a kid again watching Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Toy Story, and etc. I’d probably even put it in my top 5 Pixar movies, which is saying a lot. Though your points are valid about the story telling and the story arc, I believe this was necessary. They were not only telling the story of Joy and Sadness, but of Riley as well. Fitting in two different stories that work with one another is a very hard thing to accomplish, which Pixar did (ofc they did, they’re Pixar). I genuinely felt a connection with Riley and the characters and left the theater very satisfied, which had not happened in a very long time.

Scott Noble : Yes coco had a similar story as the one with rats but coco did it so much much better ,when you think of good Pixar movies I almost certain that the first movie you think of isn't the one with rats but it might be coco and you are wrong about incredibles 2 so don't guge something before it comes out

Eoghan : I like Cars..

Pablo Rages : CARS was Great ... you're an idiot

Alia Ris : NO. Lion King ripped off Kimba The White Lion.

Kodo Elder-Groebe : I think you ripped into Inside Out and Coco our of nostalgia. That fact that Coco follows a simple three act structure isn’t really a criticism. It’s just an observation that it has something in common with most movies, ever. The original Toy Story and the Pixar movies that followed it also played into tropes and cliches. The conflict between Woody and Buzz is a classic new-guy-in-town situation that’s been done many times before. You also don’t give Coco credit for the amount of creative visual style and flair, or for the fantastic music. La Llorona is a great song that is used as a powerful storytelling device. Without words, a huge change in her character is indicated as soon as she starts singing on the stage. It’s things like these, the creative ways that animated films communicate story, that you praise the earlier films for yet ignore for the new ones. I agree that Pixar’s filmography has become rife with sequels everywhere, but the ones that aren’t sequels are still excellent.

Fabian Hebestreit : I hated this nostalgia wankfest so much that I cancelled my Squarespace account.

Reece Boxer : I love hearing the Hip hop music in the background

Sarah : A lot of this is right, though I think you overboard in your claims that _Coco_ is so much worse than early Pixar films like _A Bug's Life_ or _Cars._ Also, your claim that nobody cares about _Cars_ indicates you don't spend any time around children, because it's laughably wrong. (It's almost certainly the most beloved of Pixar's movies among children.) Ultimately, the issue here is simple. There's no longer a company called Pixar. They're just a group of people inside Disney, having sold their independence and lost their visionary leader (Steve Jobs) to illness. Disney will do what they've done for decades: do a fantastic job at pumping out safe, financially successful content that is good enough for everybody but amazing for nobody.

- Sargent dave : Hahaha Pixar will never die.
