    When the director of one of the scariest movies of all time (William Friedkin, THE EXORCIST) and the writer of some of the scariest books of all time (Stephen King) both highly recommend a film, you take heed. Some critics are calling this the best film of the year and I can appreciate why. I can safely say I've never encountered a horror movie like this...similar ones perhaps, but none that so quietly reveal themselves to be far more…

    Credit where credit is due: this gets a bajillion stars for visual deliciousness.

    While there are moments of wit and charm, the story itself is forgettable. Arguably, Pixar's greatest strength has always been compelling and meaningful storytelling so it's disappointing to see such a gorgeously rendered film lack an equally (or even just MORE) visceral plot. I'm glad I watched it (and paid to see it in theaters) but it's not one I feel an urgent desire to revisit.
