    I honestly don't agree with the point that Alberto was a jerk I mean they kinda left the poor guy out and he barely knew anything about above surface so it's kinda understandable that he is jelous as his friend is being taken by gulia. Also just cause he was a slight jerk doesn't mean u leave u r friend for dead

    I really enjoyed this movie. It was just so simple and fun. A bit messy at the end but all around great.

    Luca is a fun, simplistic movie that reminds me of hanging out with friends and learning how relationships and the world works as a child. It also has a fun, children’s book art style to it

    Being a side of the sea, middel of nowhere, full of old people AND Italian, the everyone just accepting the rest as fish monsters part was a bit... yeah... unrealistic... but (I know schaffrillas would me for this excuse) it's a kids movie, fuck it, let them have a happy ending

    I liked the movie a lot, but yeah, I feel like it could've been so much more; if the climactic scene wasn't just some race to win a trophy but instead maybe all the fisherman going on some mass hunt for the sea monsters, if we got to know more about Guilia and his dad (maybe a long time ago he fell in love with a woman that TURNED OUT to be a sea monster and she had to leave, and he's mad but that's also why he grows attached to Roberto, etc.), if the whole "betrayal" scene had a bigger pivot to the story instead of just a "hey, I'm sorry," Roberto: "Screw you" *then later just comes back with an umbrella*, and then if there was a longer transition and explanation of the humans no longer seeing the sea monsters as threats and so on... would've turned a good movie great, in my mind

    I feel like Alberto behaving the way he did makes sense for someone of his age (14). He was struggling with the idea of losing the only real person in his life and he acted immaturely as a response. I can see from an adults standpoint how it’s “too much” but you really can’t expect an early teenager to be emotionally mature. And putting him in mortal danger isn’t really what he deserved. This review is good for the most part but I didn’t like that take, I think it’s hard sometimes for adults to understand why a kid isn’t acting, well, like an adult (this is a common problem with Aang, he’s twelve and people get mad at him for acting twelve). You need to view it through the lens of a kid, not a parent.

    I dunnooooo, I watched this with friends last night, and this movie asked you to not question a LOT of plotholes. It needed way stronger world building, but ig they didn't have time for it which I get. It also felt not on par with Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, etc, felt like a small company movie. Which btw I didn't hate it! I liked it, I just think it was fine.

    Can we talk about how Luca makes the " best friends have to their separate ways " trope so natural and well. It wasn't like some movies where it was out of the blue it felt natural that Luca wanted to go school and Alberto wanted to stay with his dad. The ending was honestly bittersweet and genuine, this movie is so cute and wholesome.

    Okay, usually I agree with most of the opinions in your videos, but I think that there’s a another perspective that can be seen here. As a queer person, this movie wasn’t just a lighthearted, fun adventure with a simple goal to complete. To me, it was a clear metaphor of the experiences of many people in the lgbtq community. The wanting to be free to make your own choices, the fear that followed them everywhere, the bullies, the scene where Luca turned on Alberto to protect himself, and the eventual acceptance from the human community were all so emotional to me because I saw it reflected in myself, and I know that many others saw it reflected in them, too. I’m obviously not saying that your opinions here are wrong or not valid, I just wanted to point out how different perspectives can add a whole new depth to the movie!

    I don’t know why, but I REALLY like how the villain was a fully grown man instead of just a kid bullying the other kids. Usually we see the latter so it was kinda neat seeing something different. And plus it makes a lot more sense for the other kids to be intimidated by the antagonist, because he was a grown ass adult!

    I respectfully disagree with your opinion on Alberto’s jealousy The trauma of having a parent up and leave you really does F you up, and causes you to act out in harsh ways to have control. In my opinion, it was very well written, and i agree with a lot of what you said apart from this one bit :)

    I kinda liked that they didn't push hints of a gay relationship. It was nice to just see another movie with just two boys being friends and having fun.

    The dad 100% silently threatened the townspeople to accept the boys. You know that no one is going to object when someone like /him/ says something, they know what will happen to them if they do. He's not exactly shy about brandishing his weapons, and he didn't need to actively say anything for his threats to go through.

    This movie was one of my favorite Pixar movies. Just because Luca is such a relatable character, and the animation was too beautiful. Not because of the story, though. The lesson learned and the storyline wasn't amazing, but it was so good anyhow.

    In my opinion, this movie has a refreshing level of complexity that doesn't come from the setting or plot of the film but rather its characters. Rather than focusing on the race or hunting fish, the story itself is about the two boys friendship. Throughout the film we see Luca and Alberto become closer and closer, only to be slowly ripped apart by there different ambitions. The emotional complexity, for a kids film, is very mature and easy to follow. Not only this but the characters themselves have such an adorable friendship that you cant help but smile when they share screen time. Going into the movie, if you focus on not necessarily the plot or the race and rather the growing love the two characters build for one another, the movie appears a heck of a lot stronger. So much so I watched it three times in a two week span at one point.

    I didn't mind it not being gay, because 1) i think it was still relatable for some gay people, but 2) showing a close friendship between 2 boys is still such a nice, wholesome, and rare thing. I have a much older brother and watched the movie with my mom, who's told me many stories of my brother's funnier little blunders when he was a kid, and we would burst out laughing at many parts, especially at Alberto pretending to know everything and Luca just going with it because my brother had a friend like that, it was cute and fun and i cried regardless because it was just so charming. And personally, i really liked the final act.

    Alberto wasn’t being a douche, he was just scared that Luca would abandon him just like his dad did. He was so scared that Luca would forget about him and start hanging out with Guilia more. That betrayal scene wasn’t deserved, Alberto was just an adolescent boy who struggled in trying to talk about his feelings of inadequacy to Luca and shows how he feels by being salty and mean. Because of that, he was almost impaled with spears.

    I felt pretty much the same, it's not a life changing experience that had me thinking after watching it, but it was cute. As you mentioned, I like how they didn't turn everything into drama. Giulia's parents wasn't a conflict but instead a natural plot device, all the characters were close friends and nothing more, the dad just being born without an arm, etc etc. I'll always say I prefer an Evangelion to a Konosuba, but both are absolutely lovely for different reasons. If Up or Wall-E is an Evangelion, Luca is a Konosuba.
