My reviewing of Turning Red has to, by the sheer presence of its theming, contain caveats. It’s a movie that has a heavy focus on periods and mother-daughter conflicts during adolescence. As an adult male reviewer, it’s not my place to speculate on how true to life this movie is. I’ve simply not grown up as a teenage girl.
Encanto is peak cinema. That’s a hot take, but it’s hard to argue against a movie made with this level of care, skill, and storytelling effort.
For better and not for the worst, The Ghost and Molly McGee is basically what you’d expect it to be. The first episode—which is all I’ve seen of it—is in the standard style of episodic comedy. But that’s not a complaint.
This review of Loki might be shorter than a usual show review. During my initial impressions (if I may have this ego trip), I was spot on with how the series would feel. But what I’d failed to guess was how far they would take this premise.
Loki is the best thing that Marvel has made since perhaps The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. I’ve yet to see the latest Spiderman, so there’s that gap, but the quality of this show is not to be underestimated.
I’m late to the party for the Raya and the Last Dragon trailer. The newest Disney Princess movie is coming out in only a few days.
Each is about two minutes, give or take, and—I’m betting for budget or time reasons—it has no actually voiced characters. There’s just “reaction sounds” that could have easily been taken from an existing movie.
It’s a subversive funhouse. A lot of the initial expected trappings seem in place, but the show ruthlessly attacks tropes from the second episode onward. Nothing plays out the way it should, and often the show has a sense of ever-present danger usually lacking from children’s fantasy cartoons.
Did you remember that Hercules (the animated series) exists? Because I didn’t and it’s frankly a shame. At least from the first episode, Hercules is kind of amazing—if you like Greek mythology, that is.
Artemis Fowl Is An Abysmally Bad Watch Artemis Fowl is a travesty. It is an insult to those that we’re excited about it, those that had hope for it, and is simply a bad watch. And, yes, I’m a fan of the books, and, also yes, I was disappointed with how poorly they adapted it….
DuckTales Is Perfectly Good All By Itself As a point of disclosure, I have not seen much, if any, of the old DuckTales show. The callbacks in the new series are lost on me unless they are a reference to Darkwing Duck, which I do have a history with and loved as a small child….
