Quick Review of “Soul” July 4, 2021

Posted by geoff in News.

Just watched Soul last night – the Pixar animation with Jamie Foxx as an aspiring jazz pianist. Not too bad (4.3/5, I’d say). Probably the upper limit of the amount of jazz reg’lar people can tolerate, but frustratingly short jazz licks for people like me who enjoy it.

Kind of a banal message from the film, but certainly better than all the woke messaging we get from most media. Revealing the message might corrupt your viewing, so I’ll put it below the fold:

The film’s theme adheres to the old Emerson quote, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” That, and a sprinkling of “Stop and smell the roses,” pretty much covers it.

I might watch it, but pixar animation doesn’t do much for me.

If you want to see a movie about early jazz that has little to do with jazz and makes up history for the sake of being ‘woke’ don’t miss
“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

Antarctica ice core samples ca/1990. Look at the CO2 / temperature correlation cycles that were going on before the first human farted 300,000 years ago.
