@Tremblucay Indeed. Thanks, definitely will. Wouldn't call it a double feature, we're going different days. Though Trolls has a bit of a priority, only because it's like a two day thing, first day being this past Monday. Another local theater is showing Trolls World Tour in August, friend wants to try going twice (he likes Trolls like I do).

I think Thor will be seen at the local AMC. The theaters showing Trolls are really the local kind, not tied to a big chain.

@Sunsy and @Tremblucay will like to hear this. I just saw Luca and I enjoyed it! It's such a charming, feel-good movie, like many other Disney films - loved the story, setting...pretty much everything about it. I totally recommend it to anyone.

@MarioLover92 Glad you enjoyed it! It's a great movie, had fun with some of it too since my mother's side of the family is part Italian. I remember I first saw it over at my friend's house, he had Disney+ while I didn't (I have it now). We both watched it as we both wanted to see it. I ended up buying the Blu-Ray/DVD combo just to have my own copy. Also, a great summer movie IMO.

@Sunsy @MarioLover92 @Tremblucay Luca kinda felt (and looked) like a Japanese animated film to me it felt small and slice of life and not big and grand. It was a very nice change of pace from all the other Pixar films, not every Pixar film needs to make you cry and be a 9/10 masterpiece.

I give it an 8/10: It was a fun time... at home on my couch

(also the father {to the main character} in Luca is going to be Smee in the new live action Peter Pan film. I have a hard time seeing and hearing him as Smee)

@Kermit1 Thing is, I cried at the end of Luca. Luca leaving his friend to go to school with Giulia, and when Giulia's dad didn't attack them when their sea monster form appeared.

Will admit, Cars 2 actually didn't make me cry. Saw that in a theater and I thought that was a nice change of pace, so I agree with you on not all Pixar movies making you cry. I'm sure someone else probably teared up to it too.

@Sunsy They are shockingly good at it. Making you cry.

@Kermit1 Indeed, I honestly cry at too many animated movies. I'd say the same with DreamWorks. Rise of the Guardians, Trolls, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon, all those have made me cry. So did Trolls World Tour, but Trolls had a really heartbreaking scene.

In one scene, the main character Poppy starts to lose all hope after Creek betrayed the Trolls to help the Bergen Chef. So she loses all her color and so do the rest of the Trolls making them grey and in a sad state like Branch is. Thankfully Branch singing "True Colors" and helps bring back hope and their colors come back, even Branch's colors. This scene always makes me cry.

To make it even sadder, Poppy is the kind of character who's always upbeat and happy, and sees the good in everything and looks to the bright side, which makes her losing her color and hope even sadder

Worth noting, because of Creek betraying Trolls, I don't know a single person who likes his character, lol.

I wasn't kidding in the Chit Chat thread I could talk Trolls all day, lol. Fits here since it is a movie series.

@Sunsy I'm the same but with Muppets, the original trilogy of Muppet films are the only films that make me teary eyed, knowing how much passion and love went into them.

@Kermit1 Indeed. I'll admit, The Muppets 2011 did make me teary eyed.

The end scene when the show was ended, and the bad guy won, but all the fans outside the theater greeted them and cheered. The Muppets were still loved by many.

Edit: Thanks, I just looked up The Moopets version of Rainbow Connection, lol.

@Kermit1 Yes! The look Kermit gives only makes the scene better, lol.

I also liked how Scooter was a Google employee. Really liked that given I remember his love for computers from the original Muppet Babies.

Endgame is the only movie that made me cry. Oh I can power through Titanic, but Endgame, that's too much.

Fun fact, Endgame is my favorite movie that I'll never see again. Or at least for twenty more years.

The link on my profile got even worse.

Don't click on it.

Or you can, at your own risk.

@Sunsy I agree for sure...it is a great summer movie and I had fun seeing it overall. I love the Italy setting too. (Spoilers for Luca ahead.) The ending was actually quite heartwarming as well, with Luca boarding the train to attend school alongside Giulia. Also loved the end credits drawings that show off the events after the story!

@Kermit1 It's a delightful movie for sure. I can see myself getting into those slice-of-life movies, as well.

I agree. It reminded me a lot of Kiki's Delivery Service, another one of my all-time favorites.
I love slice-of-life films, to me they're infinitely more rewatchable than movies that try to be deep and profound like Inside Out. To me, it doesn't lesten the experience or score I'd give a movie, it hightens it. Luca for me is a firm 10/10.

A good voice actor has many different voices and personalities they can play. I wouldn't be too worried about his live-action performance.

@Sunsy
I cry all the time watching movies and I'm not afraid to show it, not even in movie theaters.
Pixar might be the king at making me cry, but lots of other movies have managed to do it as well: E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Pete's Dragon, Encanto, Schindler's List, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Avengers Endgame, Room,... too many to mention really.
If a movie manages to make me cry, it did something well.

So, I saw Thor Love and Thunder today (typing this as the credits are rolling) and I liked it very much. Not as good as Thor Ragnarok in my opinion, but definitely better than Thor 1 and 2.
Loved the humor, visuals, emotions,... and I especially loved the final battle sequence and how it ended. Great fun time!

I just watched Mars Attacks... what did I just watch x5, I didn't really like that, it felt like Independence Day but dumber and louder and the score got on my nerves.

Lol, I liked Mars Attacks as a kid, but I've come to dislike Tim Burton's style over the years.
I remember being really scared of the alien disguised as a woman.

@Tremblucay For a PG-13 film in the "90s?" it's quite gory. I feel off after watching it, it wasn't bad just the same feeling as all other alien invasion films of the 90s. I think I need to watch MST3K to wash out the 'bad' sci-fi
