Reasons Why Sony Pictures Animation Sucks

The Top Ten

1 Their movies are too goofy and cartoony

The Ghostbusters remake is unneeded and terrible.

They think animation is comedy

2 Firing Genndy Tartakovsky from the Popeye movie just to make the Emoji Movie

WOT! He is one of the people who inspired me to be a cartoonist. I agree SpaceGoofsGeekersBoy

It's a fact. The Popeye movie is STILL in production, they just fired Genndy from the movie, just so that they would release the Emoji Movie.

This was what Sony REALLY said to Genndy: "Genndy, you need to do this for us! Hotel Transylvania or GTFO! " - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

3 Over-exaggerated character animation

Lol. I don't know about the rest of y'all but it doesn't really bother me.

Example: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

4 They're making TV shows of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and Hotel Transylvania

Cloudy was decent but why a hotel Transylvania by the way its gonna be a teenage show about Mavis by Disney *hurry* - Tyoshi


5 Most of their movies are cash grabs

All* - 3DG20

No, actually ALL their movies are shorty cash grabs.

As well as their Infamous live action comedies.

6 Surf's Up, Arthur Christmas, the Pirates! Band of Misfits, and Goosebumps are their only good movies.

Actually, it's only Surf's Up and Goosebumps. Pirates, Band of Misfits and Arthur Christmas are owned by Aardman Animation.

7 They cancelled Popeye and Medussa and made The Emoji Movie instead

This list only exists because everyone is hating the concept the Emoji movie. Haven't you heard "don't judge a book by its cover"? - SocialMediaStinks

See, Sony Pictures Animation? Now you know why the revered Genndy Tartakovsky left your studio and no longer works for you according to Craig McCracken. You ditched his project on the computer-animated Popeye feature film for a pathetic pandering cash grab. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

They didn't even cancel Popeye - poopmckenzie

Yep videogamefan5 they would have been bad as well anyway

8 Their Smurfs movies

Yeah, enough said Really lolz

9 They try to make their movies "cool" for the kids

Sony needs to die. So does Dreamworks. And Pixar. BUT DIS WILL NEVER DIE.

Definitely! They are so COOL! Said no kid ever, even my six year old little sister thinks it's crap - Swiftdawn

10 Bad straight-to-video sequels

I give the Open Season sequels a 1/5 for its overall childish atmosphere. No wonder Nickelodeon has the Open Season sequels on it.

I give Surf's Up 2: Wavemania a 2/5. - The Ultimate Daredevil, who finds Sony Pictures Entertainment to be too overrated

The Contenders

11 It treats its workers like garbage
12 They rip-off other studios

Sony do what they think is animation

Including ripping off foodfight

13 They made the trailer for The Emoji Movie U.S. only

I thank them for trying to protect the rest of the world from that obnoxious horror. - Entranced98

Racist Pictures Animation

14 Their villains are too goofy

Sony pictures animation is being such an idiot

What sony! You're being the worst!

The main character is the only character with a personality

Seriously nearly all villains are too low-qualitied. Most of them are totally mad for absolutely no reason and some villains/antagonists reveal their true strength too early to audiences only in the film which makes the story too obvious and boring.
In addition some villains are too weak to be considered as Main Antagonists and their role is too short in the film and (Like Bela from Hotel Transelvania 2).
I believe Chester V and Smiler are the worst villains, because they are mad and evil for totally no reason and they both act too goofy/dumb and they both did nothing but to engage the audiences because they did nothing but to be scumbacks during the climax scene and their role in the film is too weak to be a Main Antagonist.

15 They ruined The Smurfs

It got 49% so still torturing them then

Fair point but the next film won't be

I actually like the first two Smurfs movies - SocialMediaStinks

I actually hate EVERYTHING about the Smurfs. Not just the Smurfs movies, but especially the Smurfs T.V. shows. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

16 A live-action movie based on Peter Rabbit

Can I blow up the Sony studios?

I hate that they are making this movie. I grew up watching the old animated Peter Rabbit, and from the trailers from the new one it looks like they are making this modern with none of the imagination Beatrix Potter had. I am furious.

I'm not surprised that this movie will blow. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Beatrix Potter would be so very ashamed!

17 They created The Emoji Movie

Really? Did it have to be this reason why a company sucks?

Quite possibly the most uncalled for and poorly written movies ever.

18 Their sequels are hard to watch.

Imagine how Emoji Movie 2 will turn out if they make one.

Have any of you ever seen Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 or Hotel Transylvania 2. THEY SUCK. The villains are weak, the stories are messed up, though Cloudy 2 did try something, and they are CASH GRABS. And I know this isn’t a sequel but I’m talking to you EMOJI MOVIE also!

19 Their movie ideas are ridiculous

What's next? A movie about the Columbia Pictures logo?

20 Surf's Up and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs are their only good movies

Open Season exists. Arthur Christmas exists. The Pirates: Band of Misfits exists. Besides Surf's Up, these are the few good movies made by Penis Pictures Animation.

21 One-dimensional sexism
22 Firing Lauren Faust from Medusa
23 They're following up the Emoji Movie with the Star

The animation in "The Star" looks cheap.

I heard that everyone is gonna hate the Star. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

24 They prefer to be cheap

Their new movie "The Star" 's animation looks like a direct to video sequel

25 Insults older Sony stuff

What Sony? I thought I trusted you with Sony Wonder and Elmo in Grouchland and all that other Sony crap.

26 All of the movies are made by Columbia Pictures

Why not have Tristar?

27 The Angry Birds Movie is laden with adult jokes

I mean, you SHOULD have plenty of adult jokes in a kids movie. But this is basically the American version of Sir Billi.

28 The only good movies are the Hotel T. series, the "Cloudy" series, Surf's Up, Goosebumps, Arthur Christmas, and Pirates! Band of Misfits

What about Spiderman Into the Spider-Verse? - B1ueNew

"Let your kids watch it! " - Robbie Rotten

29 They're milking the Cloudy franchise
