Pixar is one of those studios that rarely miss with their movies. I have liked most of their films. When it comes to Soul I knew little about it and When I saw the movie it was not what I thought it would be.
The story is about Joe Gardner, a school teacher but his dream is to be a jazz musician. When he finally gets his big break he has an accident and is sent to the great beyond. Where he tries to find a way back to earth and get to his big chance.
I admire Pixar and the films they make, they tend to have a deep take on life and made in a way for kids and adults to see things differently. I think this one is a bit like inside out that focused on emotions, this one tries to make the audience see that life is precious and is to be enjoyed. That part of the story and the movie I liked, but the film did feel too long for me and I got a bit bored at one point. It has a good message and it has its good moments.
I thought it was going to be a musical film and the story went in a completely different direction. The main characters were voiced by Foxx and Tina Fey. The two characters had their funny moments but not enough for me in a long animated movie.
I recommend the movie, it is a good family movie and the message is important. Not as fun as Inside Out or other Pixar movies, but it is not a bad film.
