Turning Red (2022)

“The farther you go, the prouder I’ll be.” – Ming

Number of Times Seen – 1 (18 Apr 2022)

Brief Synopsis – A young girl must find a way to deal with a family curse that turns her into a red panda whenever she gets emotional.

My Take on it – I have always been a fan of Pixar films and love to see what they will bring us every time a new film pops up.

This is a film that I knew very little about beforehand and was pleasantly surprised at the nice way that they developed these characters and the world they live in.

The story is filled with lots of messages for both children and adults in the ways of cultivating relationships and how each much act with one another.

The story itself works and it feels quite unique and original the entire way through which helps keep it seem so fresh the entire time.

The characters all have nice quirks that helps keep things so enjoyable to watch throughout.

The best aspect of this film (or any PIXAR film for that matter) is the realistic feel of the animation.

There were numerous points along the way that I had to remind myself that I was watching an animated film because it looked so genuine and real which enhances things so much.

The story plays out really well and stays fun and enjoyable throughout.

The biggest problem here tho is the fact that there are certain aspects of the story that seem to feel too repetitive and might have been better of they had trimmed or edited things a bit tighter.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The two panda statues outside the temple are called “Bart” and “Lisa”, after the characters from The Simpsons (1989). (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
