Reasons Why Illumination Entertainment Sucks

The Top Ten

1 They made Minions

They speak nothing but gibberish - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I think they're funny, but opinions are opinions.

EDIT: Well...that opinion has changed. - DCfnaf

2 They're the reason people think animation is only for kids

Just like Sony Pictures Animation. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I once told my aunt that I didn't like Despicable Me, and she said: "But these animated movies are mainly for kids, so go a little easy on them." Do you want an ultimate example of animation being for everybody, regardless of age?

One word: Pixar

Since Toy Story, Pixar has made stories that people can relate to, with beautiful animation, interesting characters, and most importantly, they treat their audiences seriously, and challenges them. Illumination Studios is continuously lowering the standards for animated movies because they are lazy, lifeless, but their harmless. Because of that, millions of people worldwide are giving them the benefit of the doubt because "their for kids." No. We can't have that. Walt Disney once said that you're dead if you make animation ONLY for kids. Don't lower your standards. The children of this planet are much smarter than you give them credit for.

3 They made The Secret Life Of Pets which ripped off Toy Story

Illumination: hey Disney, can I copy your homework
Disney: sure
Illumination: Thanks!

4 They ruined Dr. Seuss' Lorax
5 They are Disney and Pixar wannabes

Their movies are completely different styles from Disney or Pixar. They are not wannabes. They do their own thing. - Mcgillacuddy

So you're saying that there can't be other animation studios? - DCfnaf

6 Their animation is too simplistic

The character design in most Illumination Entertainment movies are too weak, cartoony and disgusting. The only Illumination Entertainment movie with GCI that does not hurt our eyes is Hop, one of their weaker movies besides The Lorax. Luckily, the character animation is controlled, realistic, swift (Taylor Swift is in The Lorax, and she reasonably sucks now) and unlimited. Another good main aspect of the animation is the backgrounds, which have a lot of personality to it, show that Illumination Entertainment actually has a brain and is too good for its CGI. - The Ultimate Daredevil

I really dislike their animation, the character designs are cringy sometimes and the backgrounds are uninteresting and just colors. But this list sucks too, it barely mentions how greedy they are and their formulaic movies and just puts entries about individual movies.. - Phillip873

7 Their movies are cash grabs

While I like Despicable Me and its sequel, Illumination Entertainment should really try to come up with more high-quality and original movies that aren't just made to earn profit. It isn't always about the money when it comes to animated movies. They need to have quality as well. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Look at Sing. It's literally animals singing popular songs. You know what it is. - DCfnaf

8 They are overshadowing DreamWorks Animation, another animation studio owned by Universal

I know Universal Pictures hasn't DISTRIBUTED any DreamWorks Animation films yet, but they just acquired the studio recently. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

9 They are overshadowing Laika, another animation studio owned by Universal

Laika isn't owned by Universal. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Kubo and the Two Strings was way better than most of I.E.'s movies. - DCfnaf

10 Seth MacFarlane was a mouse in Sing

Yeah, So? - kcianciulli

The Contenders

11 They don't care if their movies are good or not as long as they make money

That's actually true.

12 They're just like Sony Pictures Animation

Sony pictures sucks more

13 They're only good movie is the first Despicable Me movie

I liked Sing, but the rest of IEs movies, besides Despicable Me, I don't like. - Mcgillacuddy

14 Sing was rushed
15 They were the ones responsible for making McDonald's new mascot Happy
16 Trey Parker in Despicable Me 3
17 They're ruining the Grinch

This wasn't the first time Universal ruined the Grinch. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

18 They're worse than Blue Sky and DreamWorks
