    Good lord the animation in this movie is like real-er than real life. Super wholesome story, fairly deep and mature themes for a Pixar movie, too, dealing with death and one's purpose in life.

    This movie is, in every sense of the word, a masterpiece. A masterpiece of art, a masterpiece of animation, and a masterpiece of style. This movie's animation is a gorgeous and electric mixture of Gravity Falls and classic Disney animation, but with the erratic and bizarre backdrops of Bosch with the angles of Escher. I don't think I blinked once during my viewing, and I still feel like I missed out on half of…
