The last act of this was totally unexpected for me and really elevates it. I knew Pixar would deliver the feels, but the method of delivery here is very surprising and clever. The world-building leaves a bit to be desired compared to something like Monsters Inc, or perhaps I just wanted to see more of it. But the character development is very special and I continue to be impressed by the way Pixar deals with difficult emotional topics head-on and teaches kids (and adults!) to really feel their feelings.
The plot is so boring, the cinematography truly hideous, some of the performances are truly embarrassing, and it is HELLA racist. But it is occasionally hilarious, has some great tunes and sports the finest collection of male eye candy I've seen in years (and Michelle Dockery in incredible outfits and stilettos, HELLO!). Michelle please step on me. Charlie Hunnam please wrap me up in your sweater. Thanks.
