Perfect Movie For the Whole Family

In our family it is hard to find a movie we will all enjoy, so we rarely have family movie nights. However this movie is the second movie we have all watched together and enjoyed (first being CoCo).

The plot of the movie is simple and strait forward, yet it is still enjoyable and keeps you entertained. I especially appreciated how they put two teen characters together for most of the movie and there was no hint of romance between them. Don't get me wrong, I love a little romance, but there is a time and place. I was sure they were going to mess this movie up by having the boy and girls relationship (romantically) be a subplot. I am relieved to say I was wrong.

The animation is stunning. The amount of detail in this film must have taken hours to make. The clouds near the end was some of the best animation I have ever seen, along with Everest's (Joseph Izzy) fur. I also was really happy to see how much detail they put into Yi's (Chloe Bennet) violin playing. They made sure to include vibrato that matched the soundtrack, her figures landing on the actual note being played, the shifts into 2nd and 3rd position at the correct time, and the bowing that was almost always on point (few exceptions).

The color pallet chosen was perfect and stunning.

The sound track was beautiful; above all the violin playing. I am excited to go find the pieces and play them myself.

There isn't any reason you shouldn't go see this picture.

Breathtaking

While the movie may need a while to get going it is even more stunning later on. Rewatching it now, the film touched me even more than it did in the cinema. Abominable tells the story of an unusual friendship between a yeti and a girl while brilliantly presenting what family actually means and what every one can do for each other. The beautiful violin pieces create such a thrilling flow which makes you wish the movie would go on forever. The scenery is a diverse illustration of China especially showing off the beautiful nature the country has to offer. The animation looks awesome and visuals get even better when you let yourself be enchanted by the wonderful things Abominable illustrates. As always, DreamWorks did a fantastic job with this movie and you won't regret watching it.
