Wow, my heart. Just watched Onward, and it made me fucking cry. Honestly, what hurt most about the mandated lockdown is shutting down movie theaters. AMC was literally my outlet lmao but it’s cool. I hella wanted to catch this film when it was out in theaters, it got 95% on Rotten Tomatoes & honestly, Disney never fails. Movies like Frozen just warm your heart & remind you of the important things in life, like family.
IMDB plot: Two elven brothers embark on a quest to bring their father back for one day.
So obviously, this is an animated cartoon movie. These characters are Trolls, but they’re fucking cute. The entire family just reminds you of your own, which is the biggest life message to me. Family is literally all you have. Onward is basically centered around Ian who lost his father, and never got to meet him. Him and his brother then get the opportunity to bring their dad back for a day, which is just a mind-blowing concept. Whoever wrote this script is fire, all the details were so essential.
The movie’s an hour 42 minutes long, so it’s average. I still think all movies should be an hour 30 though, that’s the golden length.
I’ve been thinking too, having a family is almost like permanent quarantine — which is a very beautiful thing. Sometimes I envy it, sometimes I’m like “I could never.” But for those concerned, I’m totally surviving. It feels good to be able to slow down because my life was on 100 at all times. I’d leave the house for 17 hours & do it all over again the next day. I started meditating also, my girl makes these amazing ones. Listen to Nipsey Hussle above, shit makes me cry.
Shout out to Corey for watching this with me, he cried too lmao. A real one! If you have Disney+, totally worth it. I also have masks if anyone needs, please hit me!
