So what did the most critical critics criticize about them?

Toy Story 3  (2010)

“At best, Toy Story 3 stands as a refinement of Toy Story 2, a movie which was an unnecessary sequel to begin with.”
–Jeremy Heilman,, 2010

“Toy Story 3 is so besotted with brand names and product-placement that it stops being about the innocent pleasures of imagination — the usefulness of toys — and strictly celebrates consumerism.”
–Armond White, New York Press, 2010

Finding Nemo  (2003)

“Unlike the greatest children’s films, I never once forgot who the target market for Finding Nemo really was.”
–Steven Snyder, Zertinet Movies, 2003

“After four Pixar features under their belts, it is painfully easy to see the clichés emerging.”
–Kevin Carr, Film Threat, 2005

L.A. Confidential  (1997)

“It’s the story of good white actors stranded, in the name of noir, in a movie that refuses to kick into gear until it’s far too late.”
–Dwight Garner, Salon, 2000

Apocalypse Now  (1979)

“There are worse ways to make movies, but there are a lot of better ones too.”
–Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, 2001

The Wizard of Oz  (1939)

“The story of course has some lovely and wild ideas, but the picture doesn’t know what to do with them, except to be painfully literal and elaborate about everything.”
–Otis Ferguson, The New Republic, 2002

You can’t please everyone.
