#830: Pixar's Luca / 7 From '76 Awards / The Sparks Brothers
While Pixar's latest brazenly evokes the settings and stories of earlier animated classics like Disney's "The Little Mermaid," Pixar's own "Finding Nemo" and Hayao Miyazaki's "Ponyo" and "Porco Rosso," LUCA'S narrative ambition remains modest–and Adam and Josh agree that's mostly to its credit. An earnest coming-of-age story set on the Italian Riviera, the movie also works as a summer-y coming-out party. They also wrap up the 7 From '76—Best Year Ever series by naming their favorite performances, scenes and more–including their Top 5 of 1976. Plus Adam recommends Edgar Wright's new doc, THE SPARKS BROTHERS, about the eccentric pop group that's been described as "your favorite band's favorite band."
