When films such as Toy Story, Shrek and Monsters Inc hit the big screen I was instantly grabbed and whisked away into my idea of heaven. After such successes from Pixar and DreamWorks at the box office it's quite understandable that other movie studios jumped on the bandwagon and started producing CGI movies of their own. As expected, these new movies were quite poor and rather formulaic. After trying their best to copy what made Pixar's movies great, these other studios had to make their films cheaper, quicker and at the same tick all of the boxes that some rich executive thought every animated film has to have."
