What would be the best way to argue that while good, Shrek marked a bad turn for animation as a whole?
>>
With examples?
>>
It was a fuck you to Disney, that thought it was a good idea to use smashmouth instead of a "fancy" original score
>>
you could say it was a victim of it's own success and while it was a big hit for dream works it was also an excuse for them to just try do the same thing over and over
>>
>>77813280
The irony is that now Disney is yet again dominating animation.
>>
It lowered our shrekspectaions
>>
People thought that being edgy and current was suddenly all you needed for a hit, instead of the good writing that Shrek had.
Being 'subversive' has become so mainstream that making a traditional fairy tale is a big deal now.

Why did they have to bastardize Sleeping Beauty and "Pan"? Why?
>>
>>77813516
Because Wicked was a popular musical and Maleficent didnt do too bad.
>>
>>77813648
Yes, but Wicked also had humor and intrigue, and still admitted that the traditional villian did some bad shit too rather than "The Patriarchy is the true evil".
Furthermore it took a lack luster villian and gave it character. Maleficent took the teeth from Disney's best badass
>>
>>77813198
It became too popular and too many people tried to imitate it without understanding what was actually good about it.
>>
>>77813722
>>77813479
Nailed it
>>
Absolutely. Shrek, in a weird way, became the thing it hated most. It started out as a parody of the crass sentimentality and commercialism of its competitors, and then made a disgusting number of cash ins after.
>>
>>77813198
>Shrek
>good
It's decent satire at best.
>>
By posting a lot of really stale memes! From Tima dn Eric and Chef Boyardee haha Something Awful sure is great!

That's not the point.
The point is that the media followed en masse the footsteps of a good product that sold well without understanding what made the product good in the first place.
It happens every time:
Wicked -> Maleficent
Watchmen -> the 90s
Shrek -> Animation in the 00s, with shit like Chicken litte, Valiant and Shark Tale
World of Warcraft -> every MMORPG and expansion since then

If someone hits gold with a shovel expect everyone else to try and find it in the same place with dynamite.
