    Excellence in film-making. There will always be a nostalgic place in my heart for the Disney movies I grew up with in the late 90s and early 00s but the most recent films have been packed with even more ambitious animation and more importantly, nuanced and thoughtful stories that I truly believe will lead to critically important conversations on how to grow up with altruism, a community spirit, resilience and more. I am excited for young people to watch these…

    Last 1/3 was the strongest. Some really beautiful shots of the wildlife. Daisy was a great choice for Kya. I was crying by the end of it, so I’d call that a success.

    The most unrealistic part of this movie is that there was that much room in the pit.

    Pixar always hits the emotional notes perfectly. Of course the scene with the daughter comforting her mom as a teenager is heart-wrenching. The joy of being with friends as a young adolescent is endearing and reminiscent of my own experience. And yeah, the puberty shame and embarrassment is right on the money. 

    Animation and music are exquisite. 

    This movies loses me in some of the details and the extended metaphor. Also, the similarities to Brave are too close.

    If you’re going to watch a buddy cop movie, watch this one.
