You know, I totally agree with you about the 2nd Star Wars trilogy. Just terrible movies, particuarly considering expectations that come with following up the originals.
What sets Pixar apart to me is that it's not really about the art, it's about the stories. The Incredibles is as good of a superhero movie (well, ok outside of the new Batman ) as there is. Different art styles/computer graphics styles are pretty much irrelevant to me. Pixar just writes good stories.

Seriously though, how can you hate a whole subset of movies?!

I can also see where the "OMG ITS A PIKSER MOVIE" hype might get annoying as well.
Anyhow, if none of you have actually watched a full one through and through, they're really quite well-written. BGM, it surprises me that you're not into them, with the kid and all. Seems way tolerable than some of the other crap animation that's being put out!
In summation: Your opinions are all wrong.
I don't like the style of animation, so it's difficult for me to focus on anything other than how irritating it all looks to me. By the time I get used to it, the movie is half over. Just not worth it for me.
My daughter doesn't watch TV except on rare occasions. She likes Jon and Kate because there are so many kids, but her favorite things to watch seem to be soccer and hockey, with hockey being number 1. Lately when she sees a picture of soccer being played, she yells, "Hockey!"
In fact, when we were out visiting relatives last week, she "played" a few games of NHL 94 on Sega Genesis with me [sometimes she'd push a button while she was sitting with me]. The next day, she walked up to the x-box, started hitting the Open button, and saying, "Play hockey, Daddy Hailey."
Just in case you didn't already know this - Apple is already "hinting" that PowerPC support is on it's way out. I think some iMovie effects, andmaybe other "extras", aren't available on G4/G5 machines.
More importantly, they may not support PowerPC chips in the next OS update (10.6 aka Snow Leopard). I imagine they'll catch a bunch of **** if they pull that with 10.6 though, so they may wait until 10.7 to do it.
