  • Animation is such a unique and hard concept for people. Many assume it's for children only and those who do know better struggle to find good content. One of the sad things is, the idea that pandering to kids in media is the best way to go. Because kids like more than just battles or jump scares or even bright colors. I loved doctor who at age 6. I grew up on David Tenent and those serious themes. I was prepared to face all the evils of the universe and understood a good bit what that would mean. So, soul will of course vibe with kids! Kids know better than anyone what it's like to have passions pushed on you and to not vibe with em. That's most of childhood, but it's also part of growing. I think Soul was good at putting those heavy thought provoking questions into an entertaining movie. I agree 22 was annoying at times. The end was a crash and burn for me. The second half too. If you dream of being on the big stages and playing music, if it's really something you love, you'll want to continue it. Joe's unhappiness as he made his dream come true felt like.... unrealistic. I've been on the stage, I've had goals change as different options arose. But I can promise that I would do the things I love again and again. I would be on stage my whole life performing if I could! I would do my art everyday, every inspired moment if I could! It's what makes my happy and it's my passion. Then again, I've always known what I wanted to do with my life.

  • As someone who's strongly religious, I didn't have an issue with the movie in general, I really enjoyed it, and I knew it wasn't going to skew toward my beliefs so I didn't have a problem that it didn't. That said, I wasn't a big fan of the inclusion of new-age types of things. The movie presents them as spiritually neutral, whereas my belief is that those spiritual things not allowed or encouraged by God draw on the power of demons instead, so their inclusion and portrayal as spiritually neutral could lead people down a path much darker than they realize. Other than that, though, I really enjoyed the movie, and I thought it was clever to leave the Great Beyond as abstract and unexplored territory. Something about this movie's dialog and characters, especially on earth, felt two or three notches above nearly everything else I've ever watched. People's actions just feel very believable. Dorothea freaking out and calling in another pianist makes total sense, but so does his former student having his back. The guy in the barber shop passing up getting a haircut from the older barber is so relatable, as well, and there was so much good stuff in the barber shop, as many have mentioned. This movie isn't about people making big mistakes, it's not about people failing, it's not about people being arrogant, it's not about characters getting separated, it's just a really thoughtful exploration of an extremely big topic. The ending didn't feel as powerful as Coco or Inside Out, but this movie is still fantastic.

  • If they released Soul in theaters in 6 months or a year, I would seriously consider seeing it even though I've seen it twice already, and I rarely want see a movie in theaters.

  • Spoliers I felt the same way too, I think Joe should have died in the end, but when he walked down his hallway, his previous perception of his “mundane, meaningless life” would be replaced with moments of him enjoying his life. So the whole journey with 22 wasn’t pointless, he learnt to appreciate his own life. It may not sounds fair that he died in such a young age, but that’s what life is like, it’s never fair. For me as an audience, it would teaches me to appreciate life even more because unlike Joe, I am still living and I’ve got the chance to create more “moments” for my own hallway. And even though Joe died at the end, he actually got a second chance to reconnect with his mum and fulfilled his dream too, which was nice.

  • also, I am disappointed that they didn't show 22's future- I mean ever since 22 was introduced I wanted to know their future on earth, their name, etc! but still it was a great movie,

  • Well I loved the animation, but I just didn't really care much about the movie. I mean, yes it had a great message but the two main characters just were not really all that likable to me. But I do like the barber and I admired how despite that he didn't get his dream job, he was still able to be happy and grateful for what he did have and that's awesome! But all in all, I didn't really care for Soul and I prefer Coco. It's okay if anybody else has a different opinion than me and enjoyed Soul.

  • "I think Joe should've died" But then the entire movie would be pointless Because the entire premise is that Joe to see that the small things in life and live his life To kill him at the end would be ... To throw that whole plot point away for sad climax fodder

  • I personally loved this movie. A Paul rule my favorite from Pixar. My only complaint is that I wished it was more focused on his music and his purpose after he didn’t feel fulfilled by his big break, but I’m still really happy with the direction they took it in with the afterlife and all that. The message really hit home for me as I’m graduating high school really soon and need to start making choices for the future about my life, and it really hit in the heart. Amazing movie for me

  • I really liked the idea of "where," do we come from or how exactly we develope personalities/hobbies. Although I did keep interrupting my focus from the movie by comparing it to how in reality, parents/adult figures can shape us into how we are in some ways or how we change hobbies/interests as we grow. I'll have to watch the movie again without comparing it to real life and just watch. I do remember feeling confused about Joe's death like I wasn't sure if I preferred him alive or not at the end.

  • Here's a very interesting thing about the religious point. I watched the movie with my mother who is way into Christianity and she had no qualms with the movie as she could interpret all of the aspects of the afterlife and before life as part of God's work and his divine plans which makes me happy that people with different perspectives can still enjoy the movie without their beliefs ruining the experience.

Being an atheist and having studied other beliefs I would say that this could also fit into several others but reminds me SO much of Saturday's Warriors (fellow ex-Mormons and Mormons should know what I'm talking about).

  • I did not expect to love this movie so much. It's beautiful. The only way it could have been perfect was if he didn't get a second chance, and embraced that his time is up. So his sacrifice meant something.

  • 22 clicked with me because we share the same feelings on "meaning of life". There isnt really anything that i really want to do, nothing inspires me as much as thinking how beautiful the smell of food is, the concept of life or the flutter of a maple seed to the ground and thinking about how one day that could be a giant tree. So i appreciate that part of 22 and i understand that with that thinking why you would feel like this annoyed sad character in the spirit realm where you dont get to see that.

  • For me, Soul feels like a Studio Ghibli movie. Everyone can watch and have different point of view about the story. When you're a kid, you see a movie telling the adventure of a men in the great beyond/before. When you're an adult, you see a movie telling you a moral. What reminds me of Ghibli feelings when watching is the scenes when there is no action and just a character doing his things (like the Pixar Popcorn short about Soul).

  • Idk man, it was a little hard for me to get attached to him. I got there, but it made me empathize with 22 more than him. He was pretty self absorbed throughout the movie until the end, at least to me, but I did like how they showed how u can be consumed by ambition without living

  • I saw this movie very recently and I have to say that it was really entertaining! I am actually glad that 'Joe' accepted the second chance to live in the end; even though he would have been perfectly satisfied with just going to heaven, just because he got to live his dream of "Jazzing" with his idol does not mean that he had nothing left to live for at all. But I can't help but feel that even though it was not his time to die he was meant to in the first place in order to meet "22"; so that they could unintentionally help each other out even if that wasn't what they were trying to do at all, call it destiny or fate if you will. I mean it can't be just pure coincidence that out of all those many little ghost creatures which were a lot; he gets paired up with the only one that is basically the odd-one-out and who really needed some encouragement and motivation,not to mention he wasn't even supposed to be a "mentor" at all so they were both pretty much out of place.

  • I’d give this film a 6.5/10. Great idea and premise but it didn’t give itself enough time to focus on it, and didn’t do it very well

    Ace QAce Q2 hónapja
  • *Spoliers* I feel like if Joe would have gone into the great beyond at the end would have made the film very anemic, and would have made every point of his development very worthless and have been worthless to the moral of the story. People would probably praise it for being deep or dark or what not but I don't think that would have been best from a story telling perspective. I think the movie nailed it by just cutting to credits after he says he doesn't know what he is going to do with his new outlook, leaving the door open since the entire big revel of the movie was that the spark isn't one's purpose, but simply their passion. Joe always knew his passion, now he goes and finds his purpose which he does not know, and I think that is the deepest cut the movie makes there. Not crazy optimistic or preachy like he knows exactly what life is all about and he is going to go become some amazing helpful person. but not as depressing as if he chose not to go back, he is going to live is life, because that is what life is about.

  • I JUST watched it now. I thought the ending was perfect. It does seem out-of-nowhere that Joe was just given a second chance, but think about it. We will never know what Joe is gonna do. Continue being a jazz pianist, continue or quit being a middle school band teacher; there is no set in stone ending. All we can do is guess what Joe will do, and I thought that move by Pixar was fantastic. It reminds me of the ending to Monsters Inc. where the film ended with Boo saying hi to Sully after he opened her reconstructed door. What I loved about both endings was that there was no definitive ending. In other words, those films don’t really end with “The End”. They leave you there to guess what’ll happen next based on how you felt throughout the film.

Soo i agree I think for the Art of the Movie they should let him Die bcs in the End he was in the point who he said "Its time for me to go" but im still happy about the Ending that came out bcs they still had a very good massage behind it :3 "Live your life to the last limit and enjoy it with your Friends,Familie and People you will met in the future" ^^

  • The ending you wanted was actually their original idea, but they tweaked it to where Joe gets a second chance, simply cause (also like you said) they thought it was a bit too dark and didn't feel right. i'm fine with the ending, but Joe getting a second chance felt a bit ''sudden'', if you know what i mean. i loved the movie, personally, even got me to cry quite a few times. even got me to look at life in a slightly different way then how i used to, and enjoy those small things that Joe calls ''regular old living'' more aswell. 22 as a character i also really enjoyed and the way how her personality changed as the movie went on. (idk, i think i just like those kind of characters alot in movies) I'm happy that Joe went back to ''The Zone'' to try and look for 22 to fix those mistakes he made with her and basically tell her that she does have a purpose. (seeing her as a lost soul broke my heart, tbh). overal great film that i have been recommending to my friends (including a few that could use a push like that, as in, the message the film is trying to get across, the movie did help those friends) P.S: i'm kinda hoping that Pixar will do a sequel in which we see how 22 is gonna live her life, how Joe is doing, if Terry is still gonna get after Joe for ''cheating'' life (i don't see that trick they did to fool Terry working forever. xD). idk, i just see quite a few possible ways to do a sequel with.

  • I hate this film due to the facts that it makes no god damn sense. A soul has a personality before they’re alive? Shouldn’t the experiences of life shape the personality rather than when exist beforehand? This doesn’t make sense to me which makes me hate this so much. It’s another one of Disney’s shitty throw-outs. Other than that it’s decent but it’s not exactly my cup of tea, I hate this dramatic soap operas made by Disney. I just keep finding new reasons to hate Disney everyday. Don’t get me wrong, pirates of the Caribbean series is on of my favorite movie series. But since about 2017 Disney has begun to become unstable and started becoming a consuming production studio. It went after animal planet, lucasfilm, and marvel. I predict that they’re going to go after Sony for real or dream-works. I loath their guts out of their mouth and into their asshole. I like the products not the corporate biggots.

  • Haven't seen the movie yet, however on Sabers comment 'I don't think it will vibe with kids that much'... Probably not. However, from what I experienced on my own, I think that children watching this movie will remember it vaguely, and growing up will come back to it when they need or want to understand it better - in other words, it might become one of those movies that connects generations in near future, one that people grow into to understand better when they need the message.
