I am on my final semester of college.
In four months I will graduate, have a degree and begin my life as a successful working adult
So far one movie in particular has aided me on this final lap. And it's not one I would have expected.
Any of you familiar with this one?:
It definitely hit me by surprise. I watched it late one night because nothing else on Netflix looked good. Expecting to tolerate it I actually fell in love with this movie. It's surprisingly very charming, not nearly as obnoxious as the trailers made it out to be. And, so far it's done a great deal to inspire me through this final semester that I'm already feeling over and done with.
Part of the movie's appeal to me is the visuals.
I think it's beautifully animated. The character's mannerisms are very expressive and yet so subtle.
I love the lighting and mood throughout the film that appears unique to each moment while transitioning beautifully from scene to scene.
(For whatever reason I can't get over the gas station in this movie. Weird I know, but it just seems so cozy and safe in there
The other part is the music.
Because of this movie, for the last month J Lo and Rihanna have been singing me though life.
The music is beautiful, uplifting, fun and sometimes even haunting.
Most of the music was written for the movie too, which I think is really cool
I know it's a lot of praise for a kids film that seemed to come and go from the theaters before anyone could really appreciate it. But that's partially why I felt like mentioning it.
Home just has great vibes. It's a cute, funny adventure and it has a great story to tell.
Anyway, that's my two cents on it.
Here's a beautiful music video to help inspire you to check it out!
