Fucking terrible film. So boring and badly shot. Why the fuck is everything so bright! All the interiors are old castles or mud huts and every shot ooks like they had giant lights on everyone’s face at every angle. I mean wizard’s room in a castle with small stained glass windows and the two guys talking look like they’re standing outside on a sunny day. Light where the fuck is all that light coming from? Who the fuck hired this…
Weird and surreal kind of like in a Being John Malkovich way. Great flic, gets really weird at the end, although none of it seems completely out of the realm of possibilities. No spoilers, zero doubt there are US corporations that would pull the shit that gets revealed at the end. Fucking corporate douchebags. Recommend if you’re into quirky indie dark comedies.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
One of Pixar's best. Watched it last night with my wife and son. He loved it the whole way through, although at 4 years old, he didn't quite get the "family hates music because of a great great grandfather abandoning the family" thing at the beginning.
Very touching story. Beautiful animation. Even at 2D it felt like an amazing immersive world. Thought it was interesting how Mexican heaven looks like a combination of Kowloon Walled City and Disney world.
I'm a little biased since I was one of the writers. Was excited to work on this flic, since it was my first time writing for a kids movie and I had only done horror comedies before this one. For a while it was my son's favorite movie to watch. He would chose it above even Disney and Pixar movies that I would pull out to watch. That definitely made it all worthwhile.
