my girlfriend dragged me to see "bolt" a couple of weeks ago (which wasn't bad considering it's troubled history -- but that's another topic) and i was disappointed there was no short playing before it. especially since Glago's Guest, a short rumored to be attached to it, sounded interesting. i guess this explains the strategy -- drum up some additional second run interest in the film by attaching some new content.
a topic for conversation... while i thought the film was solid, "Cars" didn't hold any real appeal for me. now we get a short and supposedly a sequel is in the works as well. Is there a real audience for this material or is it getting pushed because it's Mr. Lasseter's pet project? if it's the latter, i guess he's earned that right, it just sits funny with me considering the stringent critical eye Pixar usually focuses on their material.
not trying to be a hater here, i'm genuinely interested in what the board thinks.
