Lightyear ★★½

This is just not enough fun. It takes itself far too seriously. Admittedly, I’m not the target audience but my children were obviously very bored at times. You see, Buzz has to learn about “teamwork”. Sadly, that takes three quarters of the movie and there is pretty much nothing else going on. There is a single plot line that is endlessly, and needlessly, stymied to the point of teeth gnashing frustration. The story is almost bereft of any good ideas.

It all looks pretty neat, though. I love the design and the sound is great. The soundtrack is not particularly note-worthy but the voice work is very solid. 

I just wish they hadn’t confused tension and excitement…
