  • Common arguments I'm seeing: - "Adum, you didn't pay attention! They have to use the Earth Pass or else Terry will hunt after them!" No. Terry is shown noticing the count is off just before the 15 minute mark in the film. This is well before anyone tried to use the pirate hippy portal. The count is off because Joe didn't go up the escalator to the Great Beyond (or whatever it's called), not because he used the pirate hippy portal instead of an Earth Pass. The Earth Pass is irrelevant to the Terry conflict and the characters aren't even aware of Terry when 22 steals Joe's body instead of just planning to return back through another portal. - "Adum, you didn't pay attention! 22 can't possibly return using the pirate hippy portal because she would need another living person's soul to connect them to a body in the first place!" It's true that she would need another living person to get back, but there are many souls shown previously in the film she could use (as well as an implied never-ending supply). The movie shows that the pirate hippy is constantly connecting souls back to their bodies. She can just jump in with any of them. She has an infinite amount of time to do this if she wants to try it in a way where she can jump into a nearby animal. Otherwise, she can just steal someone else's body again. She clearly has no moral issues with doing this since she's already running away with Joe's body by this point. The film shows at least 4 other characters performing rituals to connect lost souls to their bodies as well, so the pirate hippy isn't even necessary to do this. She also doesn't need a dead body to possess, hence the cat and Joe both being alive when their bodies were possessed.

    • yo adum what do you think of this video:

    • I think that if 22 were to use the pirate hippie method over and over like you’re suggesting it would lead to her not valuing the gift of life and it would definitely lead to some long lasting psychological damage. I guess you could still call it a plothole or lazy writing if you want but I’m glad they did it the way they did since it sends the message of life being precious, even in a movie where the characters cheat death.

    • @Diego Ochoa That’s the long and short of it, yeah. Adum operates on a “If I don’t like it, I’ll just use nitpicks to justify it” philosophy instead of, y’know, actually digging into why he didn’t like it. And then hides behind a petty “I’m just holding the movie accountable” shield every time he’s called out for it, and it muddies the waters for film criticism overall. Sometimes those nitpicks are rooted in genuine flaws, other times, like here, he gets so desperate to break the movie that he forces plot holes into existence that the movie itself shot down. But people eat it up anyway, because Adum puts it all under the guise of maturity and intelligent discussion. It’s a hollow practice he could just as easily apply to the movies he likes. But he’s got subs to keep, music to plug, and an ego to stroke. At least CinemaSins plays to the idea that it’s a joke and a sham. Adum takes himself seriously, and people take _him_ seriously. That’s a lot worse.

  • I did want him to stay dead at the end. The movie made me emotional because I couldn’t stop thinking about my dad (and I greatly struggle with accepting death), so Joe accepting that he is okay with dying hit hard with me. And then he gets brought back to life and it’s like damn, guess all you gotta do to live forever is to fake a heroic death. I do really like the Jerry and Terry designs, they made the film a lot more enjoyable for me. I just love the way they move too.

  • Adum sounds and acts like Squidward from Spongebob. Should rewatch 18 episode "artist unkown" of 2nd season to reflect a little bit. Art is not only about rules and logic, its about emotions and that is not always rational anyway. I partialy agreed with the message and enjoyed the ride. this fella has a good point too - Jonah Page The only difference with the “earth pass” seems to be that you get your own body instead of kicking someone out of theirs, which seems pretty important

    Alex RechkinAlex Rechkin17 dager siden
    • A lack of stakes affects the emotional impact. Also, the movie is very literal for something that's supposed to be metaphorical. The beautiful city parts get interrupted by the soul world, which has its own set of rules that are constantly explained. You actively have to think to make sense of what's happening, but what's happening doesn't make sense. It's not a movie where you can zone out and enjoy the ride.

  • 22 doesn’t want to do the soul thing and live in someone else’s body because 22 wanted to live their own life. That’s the point of the film no? To have your own body. That being said, why 22 couldn’t just have the Earth Pass and Joe couldn’t have done the soul thing annoys me. Unless the counting guy would have just found him and brought him back for cheating again, and cheating is bad.

  • To me the eath pass was more of an analogue for many parts of the identity. And so because 22 found so many parts of themself while in Joe's body, taking that away from them would be like taking their life, in many ways. That is what Joe is realizing when he thinks back over his life while looking at the items 22 collected, he realizes that they don't belong in his story/identity/earth pass, that the pinwheel is part of 22's identity. To me, the Skywatching and Walking line is almost like rutger hower's tears in the rain line in blade runner, trying to wrestle with the fact that he is real, through the experiences hes had. Regardless of if he was created or not. And 22 feels alive and whole when they're in Joe's body, because that is where they finally experienced the sublime elements of life, that can't be described or portrayed. That being said when they just send Joe back to earth at the end and essentially pull the ratatouille "who cares??" I was a little pissed

    Michael MorattoMichael MorattoMåned siden
    • The whole flip flopping on whether the final thing is a spark or a purpose or a destiny or whatever is great too because of how it's portrayed as Joe's assumptions and bias and self destructive analytical influence. It exists in a pure state, but he ascribes his own meaning and rules to it, just to defend what he assumes is his own passion or spark or destiny or whatever

      Michael MorattoMichael MorattoMåned siden
  • i still absolutely loved this film and thought it was the best thing from pixar since Up...but you're right about nearly everything. I will say at least the way 22 chose to have a life at the end made more sense since she can't live inside someone elses body, can't live in animal. She wanted her own life. The reason she wanted to stay as Joe at first was because she thought she wouldn't be able to find her spark when she got back to the great before so resigned to living as Joe. Otherwise I totally agree

    • He partially does it for entertainment value, I think a 6/10 is fair. That said, some of the ''nitpicks'' are major problems. When I watched it I didn't even consciously think about the pirate hippy problem but it felt like the movie had no stakes. The pirate hippy thing explains why I felt that way. Some other problems aren't that bad individually but they add up to a confusing experience.

  • None of this is my issue with the movie. I'm *pretty* good at suspending disbelief for a pretty story, and while The Rules were a somewhat *strenuous* exercise in suspension I didn't tear any mental ligaments in the process so it's fine. What bothered me is that over the course of the movie he spent all this time on earth inadvertently teaching this struggling soul to love life, and knowing that was still *fully prepared* to rob them of it forever so he could play a song, and this is *never addressed.* What would have happened if he hadn't had his own revelation about what it means to live? 22 is stranded, potentially a lost soul forever, no shits given. I deeply appreciated the message that waiting for your life to begin is dumb because life is what happens while you're waiting, and that seeing it go exactly where you think you need it to is not always the point. I needed that. But also my mouth was agape for most of the movie at how fucking *monstrous* the main character is, and it is never addressed and there is never a single consequence or even acknowledgement by the people running the show that he did a REAL BAD. He did not die of a freak accident that was in no way precipitated by him, he wasn't paying attention where he was going and death was completely avoidable. He didn't live with a care for his life or anyone else's, he took it all for granted and then lost it stupidly, and stole someone else's so he could *keep doing that.* He wasn't planning to give it back, and it may never have occurred to him to do so if he had found even the slightest fulfillment. He is the most unlikable protagonist I've encountered in an incredibly long time, and I am currently watching Bojack Horseman where they are all just.. *terrible* people. So ultimately I loved and needed the message, I loved most of the characters and the aesthetic of the beforelife (though I would have liked to see better worldbuilding), but I would have changed the ending entirely. I would either have had the ordeal center his soul so it could move on, or, if he still wasn't ready to do so, have him offered a mentor role so he could pass his hard-learned lesson to others and some good could come of it. That this did not happen seems like a shameful waste especially when in life, without even trying, he seemed to have a real gift for connecting with people struggling to find their way. "You selfishly tried to screw someone out of this wonderful thing so you don't get to just have it anymore, but here is a job where you can put your newfound love of life to actual use helping others and maybe over time make up for this very real horrible thing you did" seems like a much more meaningful outcome than "wow what you just did was awful and damaging, but here, have everything you want anyway."

  • Honestly the only thing that pissed me off about this film was how many whiney babies can't let family films be for children. Yes, this is a good children's film. It's for parents to take their kids to see. Does that mean you can't enjoy it? No. Does that mean you can't find value in it or connect with it. No. Pixar still produces really high quality family films that will always be aimed at children primarily and that's okay because children learn through the consumption of media and the lessons learned in inside out and soul are incredibly valuable ones. To learn that it's okay to be sad and show negative emotions as not a bad thing (As a lot of media has portrayed for children in the past) and to be taught that sometimes you're not a bad kid the adults around you are failing you and are fallible are rare lessons in life that might seem obvious to adults but definitely aren't to children. So no. You're not going to get your existential masterpiece sorry to let you down. Tldr; WILL SOMEONE THINK OF THE FUCKING CHILDREN!

  • I remember feeling like the film was somehow off to me even though it was emotionally relatable and impactful. But, I credited that to how overly complicated the soul world was. A lot of the complicated elements of the how the soul world worked took up so much time to explain that it felt like we weren't getting anywhere a lot of the time. After watching this review, now how I felt about the film makes a lot more sense. Coco did these concepts better.

  • I'm assuming with the whole Joe giving 22 the earth pass and him not getting to go back to earth could be because the Jerry's and Terry's wouldn't let him? Like if they tried the Jerry or Terry or whatever would go back and get him again like no you died you still have to go to the great beyond. But the fact that the characters don't even consider or try the pirate hippie to send Joe back again still doesn't make sense. Regardless they still didn't set this up in a way where it would make sense.

    Vic RoseVic RoseMåned siden
  • One of the things that made me the most irritated was the main character trying to escape death and the Terry's and Jerry's say the counts never been off. Your trying to tell me no one's ever tried to escape the death escalator? I could accept that maybe some people couldn't escape but the main character just jumped off the edge and struggled through the invisible wall. No one would watch him and say fuck this and fallow him to try and escape death? They could have possibly fixed this by making him escape in a more interesting or less obvious way.

It just happens that the protagonist is black. I don't want to say it's the first movie where that happens, but it feels (sadly) original.

Senses that aren't just touch: Balance Pain Proprioception - (knowing where your own body is (you can walk up stairs without seeing your feet, and touch your nose with your eyes closed.)) Motion and most senses that you'd think are 'touch-based', are not. For example, you'd think that knowing that your muscles are stretched would be based on feeling them, therefore 'touch', but there are actually specific *chemical* receptors that tell you your muscles are stretched. I don't think that you can call a chemical reaction 'touch'.

    • @Aron108 -"so why is he allowed to be revived?" This was explained in the movie. Jerry allowed Joe to return to his body because he returned the earth pass to 22 and helped a soul who was stuck in the You Seminar for presumably most of human history. These were exceptional circumstances. -"It's most realistic." Very little about the premise and mechanics of the movie is realistic. These things exist to make a thematic point. Joe staying dead works against that point. -"Everything can be stripped away when good things happen to you, death can happen at random and you will never be prepared for it." The movie isn't about mortality though. If it was, then yeah, Joe dying would make more sense. However, the movie is about living, not dying. Therefore, Joe gets a second chance at life.

      Samuel StephensSamuel Stephens2 måneder siden
    • @Samuel Stephens he was meant to die in the first place, so why is he allowed to be revived? It's most realistic. Everything can be stripped away when good things happen to you, death can happen at random and you will never be prepared for it.

    • Isn’t it better that the movie ends with the characters learning and growing and having the opportunity to actualize those lessons in their own lives rather than just... dying? The whole movie is about Joe gaining a new perspective on life. Him dying wouldn’t serve the story.

Sure the whole cat body swap was kind of annoying but ultimately I didn't care what plotlines they had to pull out of their asses to get scenes like the barbershop or the conversation with his mother. And the movie does break out of the convention when Joe performs at the gig and they don't play it out like some super fulfilling moment cause it isn't really the climax we expect it to be. Besides most of the humor was pretty good. Anyway I just felt like you were getting really hung up on the mechanics of the movie instead of the message which I found pretty inspiring but that's what reviewing movies does to your brain I guess
