Lightyear ★½

Not really a movie as much as it is a receptacle of sci-fi tropes with a recognizable name slapped on it. There’s a cutesy-silly sidekick, a menace who soon reveals himself to be empathetic and roughly eight MacGuffins per minute being thrown around like hot potatoes. It’s so commercial you can practically smell the new plastic cases on the Best Buy blu-ray rack emanating out of the screen. This is where the Grace Randolph-esque Disney Adult Saga reaches a new low point, and it’s actually quite heartening to see such a drab venture flop so hard. Perhaps it’s time for some new blood?
