Lightyear ★★

To infinity and straight off a fucking cliff. Making your Buzz Lightyear origin movie that is clearly made to sell toys a weirdly self-serious riff on Interstellar that burns through all its patented Pixar heartstring pulling in the first 30 minutes before just devolving into dumb bullshit is maybe not quite as catastrophic a decision as making your Jurassic World movie about a locust plague, but it's a little too close for comfort. I'd complain about the self-seriousness (and how there is just no way a little kid doesn't get bored to absolute tears by the first act), but every time this movie does attempt to have jokes they really make a fella long for the halcyon days of "my panda, my choice", so that's how you know we're really in trouble here.
