Hmm... I don't know that's true. Or did you ever criticize Pixar, found people disagreeing with you for just reasons and therefore you think *any* criticism of Pixar is treated in an unfair way? I'm not saying this is the case. Fanbases can be annoying. God knows I have experience with it. Try to say on a forum dedicated to Disney comics that you dislike the artist Don Rosa. Soon, you'll be battling one flamewar after another. So, I can understand your attitude, but one must be careful not to confuse the behavior of the fan community with the actual films (like some member of UD has done with e.g. The Godfather

Besides, that comment was just my way of defending DDuster from having his other ideas discredited on the basis that he doesn’t like Pixar.
Believe me, Duster gets his ideas discredited for a whole plethora of other reasons and rightfully so.
Snow White is not 100% like the Snow White stories being told before Disney made his film. During the renaissance all of the films are modified from the original or from the well known versions of the stories. The Little Mermaid is completely changed. Beauty and the Beast is changed. I will try not to touch on Hunchback, but my goodness gracious it is NOT the tragic novel that Victor Hugo wrote.
I don't think people should complain about changes in one movie (Tangled) when every single other movie made also has HUGE changes.
Duster's complaints are completely arbitrary! (Is that a word in English?) I mean that he only complains about story changes on films that he personally didn't like; and he's okay with story changes on Disney films he does like or which were made by Walt personally (because, as we all know, Walt was infallible, like the Pope). It's personal preference disguised as 'objective' criticism. He then desperatly seeks 'arguments' to support his claims, but they're far-fetched and 'made up'.
, reading your posts makes it look like you're 'afraid' to admit you like a current Disney films; it makes it look like you're 'afraid' to admit you like anything to doesn't fit the "traditional" Disney mold. Why is that a bad thing? Honestly, I would like to know. Why must everything stay exactly the way it was when you were a kid? Why can't you enjoy Rapunzel
for what it is?
