‘Luca’ Is Soooo Cute!

Disney/Pixar never fails to deliver a great movie that leaves me weeping profusely. The same can be said about Luca; a relatively mediocre story that doesn’t feel as original as masterpieces like Soul or Up and yet its beautiful animation and profound sweetness was ultimately rather heartwarming.

Luca feels like the boy-version of The Little Mermaid as it tells the story of a headstrong “sea monster” kid who’s willing to defy his parents to see the human world. He meets best friend, Alberto, and together they go on a cute but grand adventure.

Luca | Disney Movies

The film has a classic twist three-fourths of the way into the film that transforms the movie from fun and airy to a bit depressing and got me all teary. By the end, I couldn’t stop the thin rivers pouring from my eyes.

The recent animated movies under Disney and Pixar have been profound in their messaging and Luca subtly (but not so subtly) provides a beautiful message for the LGBTQ+ community about identity and pride of being oneself. Now I’m starting to understand why this movie was released in June. (I see you Disney.)

Ultimately I thought Luca was a gorgeously animated, truly touching film that I highly recommend if you have a Disney+ subscription.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

‘Room’: Well I Wasn’t Expecting That!

Room, the film that awarded Brie Larson her first and only Oscar, is a movie that has interested me ever since I heard about it. Considering that I am a Brie Larson fan for her role as Captain Marvel I was super intrigued to see why her performance in Room garnered her an Oscar and after seeing the film I totally understand now.

Room follows the story of a kidnapped woman (Brie Larson) and her son, born in captivity, as they live life in a single room locked away by their captor. The film is heartbreaking, depressing, and oh so dreary. I found myself crying quite a bit and yet was utterly enthralled in this story that felt so real. There was never a moment where I felt that the movie had been written that didn’t seem realistic and that was very important.

The performances by the film’s two leads, Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay, were top notch. Tremblay provided such an overwhelming performance that I feel he’s the best child actor I’ve seen since The Sixth Sense‘s Haley Joel Osment. He should’ve been nominated as well.

All in all, if you haven’t seen Room, I implore you to do so. The film is way better than I expected and quite the find, as long as you have tissues on hand.

I’m giving it 100 out of 100 and 5 out of 5 stars. I already liked Brie Larson but after seeing this movie I really like Brie Larson. I’m so happy she’s the one playing Captain Marvel.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
