EW gives new Pixar movie "Luca" a B+

'Luca' is small-fry Pixar, a sunny Mediterranean trifle set in a postcard Italian village by the sea. But it's a winning one. https://t.co/8rl2EXJRln

Wait, so you're telling me I don't have to spend an additional $30 to watch it?

No! You don’t have to pay anything as long as you already have a Disney+ sub, isn’t that great??

Some site was like "Why aren't Pixar movies as good as they used to be? with this + onward mentioned.

And I agree. This was fine, it had a very Miyazaki feel to the story ("Just do cool shit and have interpersonal relationships").

[Spoiler (click to open)] I liked the frankly, underdeveloped relationship between Alberto and Giulia's father more than the others.

Also the sea monster versions are so much cuter than the human versions lol

I see this, Onward and also The Good Dinosaur as their b-team movies with Soul and Inside Out being the studio's a-team/main stage projects for those corresponding years. It does seem like this is their only animation being released this year though. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm one of the few people who will go to bat for The Good Dinosaur lmao but I feel people are too overprotective of Pixar because it's their childhood.

I saw most of it with my kids today and I loved it! I'll probably rewatch it again, so I can see the parts that I missed.

I loved it! It was so beautiful. The animation was amazing, I loved the character design and the scenery 😍

I also thought the story was really nice, low-stakes. I have found the last few Disney/Pixar films have had great visuals (Raya) but the stories have been lacking (though I haven't watched Soul yet)

I just loved this movie so much, so I was really happy. I just wished they had released it in cinemas, or will, because it's just so beautiful and needs to be seen on the big screen ❤️
