Attack of the Puberty Panda

Turning Red – This is the first Pixar film to be directed solely by a woman, and it explores the familiar themes of the awkwardness of adolescence and trying to fit in with an overbearing family. That it uses menstruation … Continue reading

Six Degrees Below Zero

I guess it’s the holiday season now, so whoop-de-doo and dickory-dotch, and here are some things that I watched. The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special – Like the movies, this special doesn’t take itself particularly seriously, but it does … Continue reading
