    a life changing moment...
    Viewing this movie, really gave me a life changing moment...

    Joe finally gets his chance to play for Dorothea's jazz band... A career in jazz he always dreamed for... But then by stupid mistake,

    Joe falls down a manhole.

    Joe finds himself as a soul heading into the "Great Beyond".

    Joe runs away and meets 22, a soul living in the "Great Before" who refuses to get her earth badge...

    Joe trys to get back to earth, ends up hacking a way back to earth with 22. But Joe ends up in the body of a cat and 22 ends up in Joe's body.

    Terry, an angel-like admisterator being in the "Great Before", catches up with Joe and 22, and brings them both back to the Great Before...

    Joe tells 22 that his experiences and tastes earned 22 the earth badge. Angry, 22 tosses the badge at Joe and disappears into the zone. Joe heads back to Earth and has a successful first performance with the Dorothea quartet, but does not feel right about what happened.

    At this moment, Joe does something that was a life changing moment for me.

    Joe plays the piano and chooses to enter the zone again to rescue 22!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Why would he do this? He got everything he ever wanted!?! He did this because it bothered his conscience. And he wanted to do something to make things right so his conscience would not bother him... People complain about how everything is wrong... About how the world is going bad and how it would all end soon... i think this is because too many people are doing things against their conscience... A few people acting against their conscience and doing amoral things might not amount to much. But if it gets too much it begins to take it's toll... i think this world needs more people like Joe who is willing to lose everything in order to make sure his conscience stops bothering him.

    Soul: Pixar's latest masterpiece that takes you on a heartwarming journey of self-discovery and purpose
    I recently watched Pixar's latest offering, Soul, an enjoyable and thought-provoking film. The animation was stunning, and the soundtrack was beautiful, but what stood out to me was the film's message about finding purpose and meaning in life.

    The story follows Joe Gardner, a middle school music teacher who dreams of becoming a jazz pianist. After a freak accident, Joe finds himself in the Great Before, where he teams up with an unborn soul named 22 to find his way back to his body on Earth.

    What I appreciated most about Soul was how it tackled complex philosophical questions in a way that was accessible to audiences of all ages. The film encourages viewers to think about what makes life worth living and how we can find fulfillment in our everyday experiences.

    A few moments in the film felt slow-paced and could have gotten edits. Additionally, some of the humor didn't land for me. However, overall, I highly recommend Soul to anyone looking for a heartwarming and introspective film that inspires you.

    Beautiful original afterlife(?) story from Disney and Pixar. The instruments being played are amazingly synced to the characters' fingers. The casting is superb. The actors' and actresses' voices were perfect. But this is not a kids movie. It's very sophisticated:
