The trailer seemed like a slam dunk for being better than the first (at least story wise) so I'm a bit surprised here.
I don't know, it's been a while since we've had a decent villain- Moana and Ralph Breaks the Internet didn't have one, and we haven't had a decent, non-twist villain since Mother Gothel, back in Tangled. I actually think that the modern Disney movies have been missing a strong villainous presence for a while now.
I actually really, really liked Wreck-It Ralph 2 despite thinking that the trailers made it look awful. Maybe it helped having low expectations, but my wife and I both really enjoyed it. Neither of us has been particularly enamored by Disney's recent output other than Marvel movies (and even then, she only likes a few Marvel movies).
I'm sure the movie will be fine, but before buying into hype it's sometimes worth it to do minimal legwork. For instance, impressions from a Disney fan site and someone working for a platform that sells you tickets probably aren't the same as your average critic, or even viewer. Similarly, a lot of these early impressions come from higher profile bloggers who make money from hype and access but also trust and credibility with their readership, so you get something less effusive and more honest, but rarely outright negative. Not saying they can't be trusted, I tend to think early impressions from this latter group are reliable, it's just worth understanding the context.
Wreck it Ralph 2 disappoints me the more I think about it.
Wreck-It-Ralph 2 was one of the worst things you've ever seen?
Which does not equal "in the 50s on RT." That's not how RT works.
You asked me if I read the OP, so I explained to you that I did and that all the impressions in the OP are mediocre at best.
N... No. You asked me if I read the OP first. Despite the fact that there were already more positive impressions in the thread.
I asked you if you read the OP, and you retorted with "Yes, did you?", which makes no sense considering the content of the OP.
