    Top Tier Pixar is back! This is the best Pixar film since Toy Story 3, in my opinion. It has everything: compelling story, innovative animation, incredible music, emotion, and an overall charming style. This really blew me away. My only critique is that it gets a little too caught up in explaining the mechanics of its universe, which occasionally brought the story’s momentum to a halt. Still, it always finds its way back on track. Really loved this!

    Also- the “afterlife” animation reminded me of a perfect blend of Don Hertzfeldt comics and the game “Super Paper Mario.” Which I thought was cool.

It’s so much fun watching the concept play out, even when it is a little over the top or borderline silly at times. It does get a little bit tiring hearing the concept explained by the characters so frequently throughout the movie, but I…

    Netflix is elite at taking a super interesting story and turning it into a boring cookie-cutter documentary

    I have very mixed feelings about this. It was all over the place, and didn’t truly succeed at anything it set out to do as a thriller, horror, or comedy. Every time some tension would start to build, it would derail itself with a joke that either didn’t land or was way over the top, completely throwing off the tone. You can’t take the characters seriously because they don’t even seem to care about each other? Characters would make humorous remarks…
