No, but I do dislike how cats are portrayed as evil in Disney movies.

Yeah, "dogs good, cats bad" seems to be a pretty common trope in (American) children's films.

Cats have strong personalities which makes for better villains.

I think the popularity of dogs "versus" cats may also have had something to do with it, cats started outnumbering dogs as pets only a few years ago.

And they're not completely submissive to their masters (i.e. authorities), as dogs usually are.

I love how we humans keep pitching dogs against cats and vice versa even though they aren't mortal enemies. Also there isn't a better race, Speciesism between animals really? :lol:

Yeah, it's really silly to pretend dogs and cats are mortal enemies. If memory serves, I believe it was the Treaty of Ghent that established détente.

How come I never posted this article in this thread before? It's a classic!
War is hell. And until Steven Spielberg got involved, we’d never really experienced war through the eyes of a soldier.
This is the kind of arrogant film making you’d label as being made by an auteur.
As an audience we don’t have anybody we can really root for the whole way through, which is a crucial mistake to make. A film without a key character whose journey we follow, is a film devoid of interest.

But doesn't providing examples of silent film special effects as a counter-argument entail agreement with the absurd, implied, initial premise that the sole point of films is to achieve the best possible special effects?
