    No. I'm not sure what I expected, but it missed the mark. The big spoiler is that people suck?

    They could have done so much more with this premise, and no, I would not recommend it!

    Cute movie and the animation is gorgeous. But - I would be hesitant to show it to my family if I still had young kids. You know how they are, if they like a movie they watch it over and over, and their mimicking the pirate slang dialogue would get really annoying!

    This is movie number 1000 for me!
    So glad I picked this masterpiece for that honor.

    I can't say much without spoilers, and you do NOT want any spoilers, so - just be prepared to be glued to the screen. Fascinating layered tale, awesome cast, great soundtrack.

    And that ending.
    You could hear a pin drop in the theater when it was over, you know, that time when people usually turn to each other to comment - nothing. Just silence. I think we were each lost in our own thoughts. I think I still am.

    Oh, but - Good Vibrations might be forever ruined for me.

    Just watched this again while flipping through the channels, and of course it is SUPERB. And it has a lot in common with "Us", in that it is truly frightening even though it doesn't necessarily entirely make sense if you really think about it. But it doesn't have to.
    And "Us" has a way deeper commentary/message than The Shining, so take that!
