Luca (2021)

A Studio Ghibli knockoff with a bizarre, ugly animation style borderline-unwatchable whenever it’s beneath the surface of the natural beauty of the Italian Riviera, Luca is the first misfire by Pixar in years – despite fine coming-of-age, fear-conquering, immigration, and grass-is-greener themes. 4.2/10.

Plot Synopsis: Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the original animated feature is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface.
