Top Ten Worst Things About Zootopia
The Top Ten
People only love and defend it for its "message" and overabundant pop culture references.
NOT "underrated". Just because a movie isn't Frozen doesn't mean it's "underrated".
I could've just written this movie off as decent but not the best use of 90 minutes I'll never get back, but then everybody else in the universe who has access to a movie theater, DVD rental, or streaming service had to go and declare it the best Disney movie of the last five years if not the greatest Disney movie of all time. All because of the Timely Message and not being "Frozen".
Um actually Zootopia is *not* underrated. Maybe your pwecious Strong Female Rabbit isn't all over little girls' underpants, but people rave about this movie contanstly and act like it's the best ever.
I think it's pretty bad - darthvadern
My gosh! The fanbase is insanely annoying!
The fanbase is Hypocritical Because They Hate Frozen For Being Overrated But Yet They Go Adore Zootopia which is even more overrated! - VideoGamefan5
You're just stereotyping the fanbase...
Furries aren't bad - Luckys
Guess so - darthvadern
Nearly all the items on this list have something to do with the fans. DCfnaf, please make a response post about this
Furries are gross and deserve to be shamed.
Not really - darthvadern
Really Cliche, the plot is absolutely awful as well - VideoGamefan5
Lame jokes, one dimensional characters, a "plot twist" that stopped really being a twist three movies ago, and an annoying Shakira song that even some of her fans concede isn't her best material. But no, it's such an AMAZING movie, the BEST DISNEY MOVIE EVER, the BEST MOVIE OF 2016 because of the message. Spare me.
The really sad part? They praise that The Message is there and use the fact that It exists against those who don't love this movie like they do, but they don't really GET the message. Charlottesville? Happened long after this movie and its Message came out and won an undeserved Oscar. Police brutality that may or may not be racially motivated though everyone always says it is? Still happening. Another item on this list is "All the arguing over which species supposedly represents what race". On the "Top Ten People/Things That Were Ruined by Their Fans" list, someone (a registered user, name withheld to protect the guilty) basically said anyone who doesn't love this movie "is probably some Alt-Right/Trumptard"- so much for anti-prejudice (which I've also seen argued to be The Message or at least part of it).
En Vogue manage to convey the same message in five minutes that this movie wastes two hours beating everybody over the head with.
When this movie won the Oscar for Best Disney Movie, (Best Animated Feature) it was not a contest of quality (b/c if it was, the win would've gone to a more deserving movie like Kubo and the Two Strings or even Moana) and more of a contest of which movie took the biggest indirect jab at Donald Trump. I actually find this in the same levels of overrated as The Lion King and Frozen where I think they are just good like a B or B+, but not an automatic A+ for one reason like The Lion King with Mustafa's death, Frozen with Let it Go, and now Zootopia with its message.
Cringe is it certainly - darthvadern
Gross keep it away from me - VideoGamefan5
Nah, it's coming twords you VGF5
Well she's the worst - darthvadern
This actually ties into "it's predictable". By the time Zootopia came out we'd already seen a rather innocent-seeming character turn out to be the villain instead of the "more obvious" character twice (three times if you count the film where the innocent-seeming character was actually the villain in disguise) in a row.
The most Awful villain I've seen! - VideoGamefan5
How? - darthvadern
You copied that from the Frozen lists
Aand you don't bother to explain why. I didn't see any problems with the plot to be honest, but if you saw any, please explain. - DCfnaf
The Plot Is Awful, Its Basically...Oh Wait, I Forgot, Its That Bad, I Made A Parody About The Movie, And It Was Better Than The Movie Itself! - VideoGamefan5
Maybe there was no romance in the actual movie, but there's fanart of it out the wazoo. There's even a comic about it. And I'd bet money they will get together in at least one of the TWO planned sequels. Bonus: one will get a sex if not species change in the process for the sake of (more) progressive-ness.
It doesn't matter that they didn't "officially" become a couple. Fan fiction stories, fan art, and Tumblr posts abound over the "true love" Obnoxious Feminist Bunny and Wreck-It Ralph Wannabe Fox supposedly share. Those who make that stuff, THEY'RE the ones who need to be reminded that "Judy and Nick aren't even in love though" and that "They DO NOT have romantic feelings for each other."
Maybe it wasn't in the actual movie, but darn if there's not fanart (including Rule 34) of it everywhere.
To be fair, though, I don't think we have to worry too much about. The inevitable "Zootopia 2" or whatever they decide to call it will introduce a female potential love interest for Judy and a male love interest for Nick. Come on, the way Disney's been kowtowing to the bleeding-heart liberal/SJW/Tumblr crowd lately and not just with this movie, you know they're gonna.
I disagree - darthvadern
SO predictable - VideoGamefan5
As if you of all people could have predicted what would happen
Yeah, I totally didn't see the THIRD TIME IN A ROW DISNEY USED A "PLOT TWIST". </sarcasm>
Look no further than "Ralph Breaks the Internet". Another "timely" mess of pop culture and, for lack of a better term, woke-ness. Which of course everyone's going to say is the greatest thing ever and shoot down any who dare disagree. Though at least "Zootopia" got its message and junk out there without dragging down a far better movie that had preceded it.
Now I agree on that - darthvadern
He's the best character - darthvadern
Yeah He Sucks - VideoGamefan5
Not only because of the aforementioned "timely message", but all the pop culture references (and the fact that there were so many), the "surprise" villain twist (as if the last THREE DISNEY MOVIES IN A ROW hadn't already done that, and how they went about presenting that Message.
Yay, iPhones! Yay Lady Gaga parody played by Shakira! Yay contemporary songs and movies getting name-checked! Yay that none of this is going to have any resonance five years (tops) from now!
I agree - darthvadern
That is true - darthvadern
Honestly, I'm Glad I'm Not The Only One Who Hates This Movie, Sure I Changed My Opinion, But PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED AND ENTITLED TO THEIR OPINIONS! HA! - VideoGamefan5
Prey Lives Matter? Predator Lives Matter? Which is it?
"The predators are black people"
"No, the predators are white people"
"Judy represents the blacks"
"Nick is a black man if there ever was one"
How is anyone even getting that Wonderful Message when they're arguing over how It was presented?
"Wreck-It Ralph" is the better movie by far and tackled prejudice. But no, not everyone's into video games (which is unfortunately why the sequel is going to see the arcade close and take place- ugh! - in the Internet) but of course everyone loves talking animals. Also, in WiR's day people weren't as super-sensitive about race, gender, etc. and there wasn't a bigot running for president/in office so people didn't feel that we "need(ed)" The Message as much as they do now and in March of 2016.
Unfortunately, it did influence Ralph's sequel
Guess so - darthvadern
What? - darthvadern
With the (besides "Breaking Bad" and "The Silence of the Lambs") movie and technology references, you mean? That and/or the now-trite "you can do anything" (especially with "despite your genitals or color") cliche.
True - darthvadern
Yes, moreso than Frozen. Didn't think that was possible, but thanks to Zootopia I know it is.
Not that bad - darthvadern
All the song titles, movie titles, and bands with whatever animal-related word they could force (Let It GOAT, Ara-BUNNY Nights, The BEAGLES, Part of Your WOOL, Wreck-It RHINO, PIG Hero 6, etc.) were more annoying than funny. That several of them were real stretches (for instance what the heck is an Ara-bunny, and who wants to part of someone's wool? ) didn't help at all.
Overrated character - darthvadern
She's become the answer to "who's your favorite female Disney character", and before anyone cheers that Elsa is no longer the answer this means neither is Mulan, Tiana, Nani, Esmeralda, Merida, or Belle. Does she deserve it? No! She's one-dimensional just like everyone else in the movie.
Not bad thing - darthvadern
Oh boo hoo! Do you expect a movie about police to be all sunshine and rainbows?
@Cartoonfan202, I Didn't Even Add This Item - VideoGamefan5
Isn't that a good thing? - darthvadern
Not horrible but disappointing - darthvadern
Seriously, the animation is worse than Inside Out! Foodfight does not have bad animation, it has goregous looking animation
Seriously, I can't even play any StarFox games anymore and have been taking far too much pleasure in having Lucina beat and slice Fox to death in Smash Bros.
Not a problem - darthvadern
