The one that started it all...
11 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of Pixar, finding their films and short films wonderfully animated, very entertaining with many touching moments and endearing characters. Luxo Jnr is the one that started it all off. Is it their very best Pixar short film? Not quite for me, I am more partial to Presto and Geri's Game. And I do prefer the feature film it is shown with Toy Story 2. However, for its time, and now even it is historically important for its influence not just to Pixar but also computer animation. The animation is vibrant and beautiful and done with character, nothing dated about it at all. I was especially taken with how much detail there was in the character designs. Luxo Jnr is not laugh out loud hilarious like Presto but it is still amusing, and it manages to warm the heart and charm the viewer even in such a short duration time. Luxo is one of Pixar's most endearing titular characters, the others being Geri and WALL-E. All in all, a great start for Pixar, perhaps they may have done better things since, but Luxo Jnr is not one to forget. 9/10 Bethany Cox
