  • It was just... Really boring :/

  • I thought it was fine, but incredibly predictable. But that's okay. It doesn't need to be groundbreaking.

  • I love how Luca is the first move ever for me, where the character wants to go to school. Made ma appreciate how lucky I am, that I can just go to school and learn all of this without paying anything.

  • I just had so much fun seeing these kids hang out and be friends tbh. And also the dad (Massimo, I think)... I love him so much, he's so likable.


  • I tried to watch Luca, but I couldn’t. It’s not my movie

  • If movies like Coco or Soul are the meat & potatoes big boi meals, then Luca is a nice bowl of pasta. It tastes good, it is easy to eat and I can have it any day.

  • I am not Italian, I am French Canadian, Quebecois to be specific. But I have always seen Italy as the US to my Canada, because we are so similar, so unique and diverse yet we can mix and match. This movie had me smiling then whole way through and was truly a beautiful movie. Aslo, the reason the dad has one arm, I learned is because the writers wanted to give an excuse as to why he wouldn't have served in Mussolini's army.

  • Thank you! Somebody that knows how good the Bad Batch really is. Its been really fun for me to watch guys.

  • “Italian skinner”

  • The first hour was very good and well-put together, but the ending 30 minutes were SO CRINGE. But it was alright.

  • Alberto's actor sorta sounds like Sokka from Avatar: The Last Airbender

  • I do like that there isn’t a song every 7 words

  • 0:05 The lamp never *fully* nailing the I is the most unsatisfying thing I've ever seen

  • Pasta Points!

  • Does the "portorosso cup" actually exist? Is Porco Rosso a pun on that?I should look more into it myself but I just wanted the opinion of an Italian

  • I hit the subscribe button to hard

  • It’s trash in my opinion meh

  • dude it's just a kids movie

  • At first Pixar wanted to make it adventurous (just like the usual) but they decided not to Also at first Pixar wanted to make Alberto turns into a kraken at the end cuz it’s supposed to be an epic fight but Pixar then threw it away

  • I guess you could say that pixar's decade long bad movies started from cars 2 being the movie that had John Lasseter's dad died during production or its just disney being disney

  • I felt the exact same I was getting sick of the masterpieces and Luca was just a very simple and fun movie

  • I will say that this film could do a lot worse and to be honest, I had a good time with this one. The animation was quite good and the story was basic but served its purpose well. The dad character was a breath of fresh air too, not citing some cliche about "sea monsters took it" or something along those lines. The villain did a good job on making me want to see him lose. Only thing that stuck in my craw like Schaff was how much of an jerk Alberto was being. Maybe it was just me but it felt like he took a complete 180 once Guilia came into the equation. To be fair, that was probably because his dad left him and he didn't know better, but still didn't sit right with me. Like many in this comment section, the betrayal caught me off guard, and I felt it was a bit much, but was definitely dramatic and that added a bit of spice in my eyes. Overall, solid film: *8/10*

  • No, Luca is terrible!

  • “I don’t compare Pixar movies to eachother” *But also* “Luca isn’t like the other Pixar movies” No hate lol I just noticed that. Good video:)

  • I like Brave '-'

  • This movie is just a simple story about friendship and I like it

  • 4:10 thought he said skitter

  • I love luca,its a good movie in my opinion

  • I’ll never be able to comprehend why people hate cars 2 Jurassic park 3 and Indiana Jones and the kingdom of the crystal skull

  • Can we also just appreciate that we have a kids movie now where two male friends are just CASUALLY affectionate to one another? I feel like too many movies that show affectionate male friends give off this "oh but no homo though cuz obviously men aren't supposed to show feelings" vibe like no plz let me love my homies and not have to clarify my heterosexuality every damn minute.

    • @Alex Gomez 100% agree! Friendships are so underrated and it's annoying when filmmakers turn friendships into forced romances.

    • Not just with males either. Close friendships of any gender are deemed romantic by hardcore shippers.

  • But the ending... Luca left his best friend to go to school with julia like i didnt expect that :/

  • Those sheep fish are cute

  • Luca is a 10/10 movie for me I loved watching it , normally I can’t sit down and watch a movie but Luca was a good movie 😩✋

  • 6:26 My useless brain: but skinner is itali... *realizes how stupid I am*

  • I just like it because it really isn’t pointed to a certain genre of people and it shows many scenes that can be taken as metaphoric as in “not being accepted”“uncertainty”. and the feeling of loosing a friend or loved one and does are Just a few it really does present as anything and can be taken in as how the reader interprets it

  • Onward was absolute trash. But brave? Come on man that was a good movie

  • Silencio Bruno 😌

  • My Rating:9/10

  • 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

  • It took me this long to realize the thumbnail has the octopus from Shark Tale in the bottom left corner.

  • Bad batch supremacy

  • though I think the film is very good and charming, the film does seem rushed

  • Who else is here after Chris Stuckmann's terrible review?

  • Where is it on the Pixar ranking

  • Honestly, my favorite part of the whole movie was the end credits. And I’m not being sarcastic. If you’ve seen the movie, you know what I’m talking about.

  • They really didn’t need to be fish people for this movie to get its point across. I wanted to dive more into the world of the fish people. Seems like a wasted opportunity to me 🤷‍♀️

  • I was waiting for part where he would say he was being sarcastic 😐. Very disappointed, this movie just didn’t do it for me.

  • 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

  • Idk bro... They're like, kids.... They make mistakes and are unlikable...... Alberto getting self conscious and jealous was pretty believable. The climax was pretty good as well idk

  • “He’s justifiably afraid of losing him to the heteros”

  • Is it strange I never cried watching a moive

  • I thought this movie was alright and good waste of my time

  • 5:49 Those were my thoughts exactly!

  • He had us in the first quarter not gonna lie

  • you order PASTA?

  • 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.

  • Wow. As "woke" as you are, I'm surprised you mentioned nothing about the cast not being Italian. How come the rules are different for us?

  • 7:20 ah yes, the country roads ghibli movie

  • 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.

  • Why is no one talking about the obnoxious switching between fake-accented English and badly-mispronounced Italian?

  • Luca made me feel. It made me feel happy, really happy.

  • *S I L E N Z I O B R U N O*

  • 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.

  • Mate, my brother made me see this video because he said "the best definition about Alberto is Schaffrillas' one: 'he doesn't want to lose Luca for the heteros'". I doubted him but YOU ACTUALLY SAID THAT!!

  • I will sue Disney if they don't make Luca x Alberto a thing. (I am legally obliged to say that is a joke)

  • I loved Luca, my favorite character is Giulia. The first time i watched it i cried so hard i nearly vomited (i’m not kidding i was dry heaving)

  • 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 actually appreciate one line in the end from the grandma saying that certain humans won’t accept him It was a very simple way to say:”yes, there is hate in the world, it exists” it really stuck with me

  • The Animations looks like its was kinda rushed, but i mean i isnt really a HUGE movie

  • Tbh I really like a movie that people don't like. Cars 2. And you might not agree but, Cars 2 was the best of the cars trilogy.

  • Disney make no bad movies

    • That's your nostalgia talking. Most of Disney's movies are riddled with plotholes and make no sense. Pixar movies are better, though.

    • Literally every sequel to an animated Disney movie is bad And Pixar movies don’t count

  • I watch this with my best friend 5 feet apart cause we’re not gay and we had a fucking blast also do monsters at work

  • Luca is like H2O mermaids, that was in my head while watching them trying not to get wet.

  • me: watches this video. also me: cried when the city finds out alberto is a see monster and luca saves alberto

  • "Nooo you can't just make a Pixar movie that isn't deep or thought-provoking!" "Hehe fish people go mama mia"

  • Luca gave me Studio Ghibli vibes, which wasn't a bad thing at all.

  • Ngl luca did make me cry and think aha

  • This movie made me cry tf lol 😂

  • They seem like really good friends

  • 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!

  • "losing him to the heteros" i rewatched this part of the video at least fifteen times lmao

  • I really love this movie love how it's essentially just a movie about summer friends and growing up.

  • I haven’t seen Luca yet but I think I will like it and am excited to see it especially because it’s not a soul but I do like these kinds of Pixar movies just so long as they are fully developed and realized because that’s how I felt about Onward and it still makes me mad because that had so much potential wasted

  • 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.

  • i love this movie so much. and even though its not totally confirmed, i think we all know that luca and alberto have something going on

  • u should make a video on if u think the movie had lgbtq+ vibes to it and why a lot of people could feel that way. i would love to here ur opinion on the matter and i think it would make for a great video seau g how much the comment section is ONLY talking about that

  • "six feet apart cause theyre not gay" *press x to doubt*

  • I dunno man I liked Brave and Onward

  • Slice of Life movie

  • The second time I watched it I did notice the reaction of the town for accepting the sea monsters. It did seem a little quick but it made me think how long where those two older women staying in that town while hiding they were sea monsters.

  • “It doesn’t have to change the world” yet has broken 100s of molds, represented several groups and reversed loads of cliches, as well as going against the “Pixar” model for a movie by being so simple

  • Sometimes we just need a feel good movie… when you expect to cry watching a movie it loses its meaning

  • Brov, I loved Luca-seen it twice already

  • and schaff really do not agree on much of anything movie wise.
