Sid didn't know the toys were alive.  🙃

Sid wasn't a monster, but he was a jerk to his little sister. He's not a wholly misunderstood innocent.

Sid was a borderline psychopath who needed to be in therapy before peoples pets started to go "missing"

It was no secret.

I took it as an abusive home.

Andy's house is bright, sunny, well kept.

Sid's looked like it was decorated in the mid 70s and never changed. Looked worn and not super well maintained. One shot we see of the dad is drunk and passed out in a recliner. The dog cowers from him. Yeah if the dog is scared, it is mistreated. If the dog is mistreated, the kids are too most likely. Not saying Sid is abused regularly, but at least neglected a great deal.

Didn't Roger Ebert write this piece over 25 years ago? I recall him praising Sid's creativity in "mashing up" his toys and creating new stories for them, rather than (like Andy) hewing closely to the scripts provided by the manufacturers. Andy is excited to be bought the latest shiny new toy promoted by a TV show; Sid has to make do with what he finds. At the same time, Ebert did not shy away from the violence and conflict inherent in Sid's play.

I also suspect that thousands of English majors have written this piece since 1995.

My only quibble is that they made Sid poor.  He could have been a bad kid without being a poor kid.

Doesn't mean he isn't a villain.

Give him a break, Disney is "woke" and Sid identified as an arsonist and murderer.

Sid, unfortunately, has been diagnosed as a boy. Can't have that! Let's put him on Ritalin so he's sedated and docile, just like we've done to nearly every other boy in America.

Couldn't have been too poor. He had braces. You know how pricey those are?

He also lived in a nice tree-lined suburban neighborhood. Better off than most, I'd say.

I was going to mention this.  Ebert compared Sid to Bill Gates.  (Note that the billionaire landscape was quite different than now.)

And didn't they move out at the end of the movie? Presumably because they couldn't afford it anymore?

I read somewhere that Pixar stated that Andy's father had died and left the family well off.

Disney would have had him die horribly while Andy looked on.

How do we know Sid didn't kill Andy's father, and drag the body up to his room for more extreme experiments?

I say he grew up to become Doctor Satan from House of a Thousand Corpses, where he not only continued his gruesome combinations of different bodies, but also fused himself with a medical variation of his beloved claw machine. Doctor Satan's real name was S. Quentin Quale. The mystery is now solved what the 'S' stood for.

Debian Stable is the OS the Universe uses.

Sid is most definitely the principal villain, because it's a story sized for the perspectives of western children who largely haven't seen a lot of horrible things.  Sid may not be the worst character, and may be the way that he is because of mistreatment he's received, but he definitely is a villain.  He destroys things, including things that he knows do not belong to him, for the sake of that destruction satisfying him.

So a variation on killing a parent, like in Disney movies.

Yeah you're wrong and, at this point, wilfully ignorant.

Ritalin doesn't make anyone docile.

The symptoms of ADHD and the coping strategies developed to function in society lead to severe and life-long anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. Treatment alleviates these symptoms and allows the development more effective and less debilitating coping mechanisms.

Anyone with ADHD deserves to have access to treatment. And contrary to your 1995ish belief that ritalin is flowing through the streets, there are significant financial barriers to getting a prescription.

Obtaining a diagnosis and a prescription requires multiple appointments with mental health professionals which are rarely covered effectively under insurance. Maintaining a prescription requires followup appointments every 90 days to evaluate efficacy and side effects, and make small adjustments in dossage. The supplies of both Ritalin and Aderal are tightly controlled, requiring several contacts with the pharmacy and keeping precise track of pickup dates to ensure that treatment is uninterrupted. Due to symptoms of ADHD and common corrolary conditions, speaking with people and keeping track of things can be quite burdensome.

Also, due to the social perception of ADHD as a boy's condition and other lingering sexist perceptions in education, girls are severely under-diagnosed.

You probably have a general dissatisfaction with the way "they" do things these days, and a handful of specific opinions on that theme that are informed by out-of-date information with dubious origins, and you just shoot hose off whenever you get triggered by a headline.

Just remember that every single time you do that you are wrong.

Sid was an asshole, if nothing else.

That being said, a few years back, I was at Awesome Con, and there as a guy wearing the skill t-shirt and carrying the baby doll head spider thing.  He totally nailed it, but it had been so long it took me a second or two to remember what it was from.
