15 Reasons Why People Love To Hate Disney

15. The Disney Vault Is Annoying

via vudu.com

Disney has drawn the ire of many adoring fans because it only releases its movies to the public for home consumption for a limited amount of time. They even coined a term for this tactic, “The Disney Vault.” Audiences think this is corporate greed at its ugliest. Disney has a commodity, and they try to build fervor and revenue by only letting the consumer have access to it for a short period. It’s basically the same business model McDonald’s uses with the McRib – and we all know how much everyone hates that. Can you imagine if the Star Wars movies were only sold periodically? That’d be an outrage, right? Well, you can expect it to happen since Disney bought the rights in 2012 to all things Star Wars, from George Lucas for over $4 billion. It’s no wonder why Disney movies have been pirated since VCRs came on the scene in the 1980s.

14. Everyone Is Sick Of Pixar

Remember the first major Pixar movie, Toy Story? It was a cool new type of animation that made you fall in love with Disney all over again, and the story wasn’t half-bad, either. Disney struck gold by tapping into this market, and bought Pixar in 2006 after numerous disagreements with the company about rights and revenue. Steve Jobs and Disney’s then-CEO Michael Eisner, butted heads repeatedly before the deal for the $7 billion acquisition was made. Well, Disney wanted to make sure it got its money worth, so now all they seem to churn out are Pixar movies. Disney is laughing all the way to the bank, because computer-generated animation is less expensive than the typical kind. Cha-ching.
Critics have also complained that Pixar movies lack the simple sophistication of Disney classics like Snow White. For example, Pixar movies have plot problems like having too many buddies in the picture, too many movies have sequels, and storylines that are too linear. Another big criticism is that Pixar movies aren’t children’s movies that adults can tolerate, but that they are really adult movies that children can tolerate.
