{5/5} “I’ve just never been punched in the face with beauty before.”

Elemental, released in 2023

Bernie and Cinder, fire elementals, leave their home because of a big storm. Eventually their daughter Ember works in the fire shop with her dad. She even beats his record for making deliveries. But she has a temper, and he doesn’t think she’ll be ready to take over the shop until she can control it.

The animation in this Pixar movie is very nice, of course.

The different elements, the things they can do, and how they might interact, are a terrific part.

I like how the movie they go and see is called “Tide & Prejudice.”

It’s about dating someone your parents wouldn’t approve of, and trying to be a good daughter.

Stars the voices of Leah Lewis, Mamoudou Athie, and Catherine O’Hara. Directed by Peter Sohn (The Good Dinosaur). The gentle music is by Thomas Newman.
