I just got finished watching Turning Red. While there was enormous backlash over the story, characters, and style before release, I was actually looking forward to it. I absolutely loved this movie. So many aspects were done excellently. The story and premise kind of reminded me of a Ghibli film, which I mean in the best possible way. I’m actually one to defend the art style. I love it when Pixar experiments with style, such as Brad Bird with The Incredibles and Andrew Stanton with Wall-E. The style of this film is noticeably more cartoony than the average Pixar film. The style almost reminded me of newer animated series such as Steven Universe, Gravity Falls and Adventure Time, which again is a positive for me. Some scenes also include visual elements of Ghibli such as the forest scenes. As for the characters, I think they were really handled well. They all act how real kids act and talk. Humor is definitely the strong suit of the movie. I love how it touches on serious subjects like generational trauma excellently like Encanto did. While it does have some minor flaws, the good definitely outweighs the bad. I highly recommend it.
