Saw Dunkirk.

Nothing like a heavy, relentless, intense as f*ck WWII film to remind you have how trivial your own problems are.

Seriously, though, its easy to mock Christopher Nolan, but this was very good.

Saw The Naked Gun.

Ridiculous live action cartoon full of ridiculousness.

Now I need to see the other two.

Not literally. I meant that the humor is extremely silly and outrageous, with a "classic cartoon" type of style, despite the movie being live action.

Example:

Saw Airplane!

 

I think I like The Naked Gun better, but I laughed more during this one, if that makes any sense.

 

The Naked Gun just felt better as a complete story, but Airplane!'s jokes had more of a "laugh-out-loud" quality.

Hitchcock month at the library is starting off great. I really, really liked Rear Window.

I just watched Bionicle The Legend Reborn. It was equally as good as Mask of light, if not better.

 

The biggest pro was that they captured the Lego-layout perfectly, while CCE's Bionicle-trilogy rather trimmed it off. Bionicle 2 & 3 had most goofs on character redesign/adaptation.

 

The only con was that it didn't have all the characters from 2009's toyline. Agori Zesk and Glatorians Malum and Gelu didn't appear in the film at all.

 

In addition of that, four other characters, Glatorians Vorox, Skrall and Stronius, and Agori Atakus, were depicted as multiplied animal types.

Dial M For Murder. I didn't enjoy as much as Rear Window, but still good stuff.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh I'm so excited for Stranger Things 2! Tim and I are having a viewing party early tomorrow afternoon to watch the first episode or two. Don't think we can fit more than that in before HP.

 

We also just recently finished season 4 of Voltron: Legendary Defender. I really liked it! But I have to admit, I don't think I'm a fan of the shorter seasons. They recently decided they're going to have like half-seasons (6-7 episodes each) but released more frequently than if they wre the normal 12-13 episode seasons. But the thing is, Netflix releases new seasons fairly quickly for its original shows. Like I think there were only like seven, maybe eight months between seasons one and two? That's not that long, especialyl since they release the whole season at once. It's still less overall wait time than shows aired on cable networks. It's just that it seemed like this season was all plot and very little character development, whereas last season was all character and little plot. And I think they had a better balance of the two when it was longer seasons. And I think, with the way the story has grown and become bigger and more complex, the longer seasons just make more sense.

 

Although, season four did give us one of my favorite animated sequences of all time:

I finally saw the pilot episode of "The Good Doctor" and good grief! How amazing!

 

I love Shaun, he's so bluntly honest and it's both realistic and hilarious, the show has a lot of heart and it's really neat to see someone with Autism portrayed so well on a TV show. It's so good!

Time to make a giant post of all the cartoons I've watched over the last couple years and probably haven't talked about here. *cracks knuckles* get ready

 

Amphibia

1560933521698.gif

 

Standard portal fantasy. Girl and her friends find some kinda magic music box type thing, accidentally get zapped to a fantasy world where giant, sentient amphibians are the dominant life forms and need to figure out how to get home. The theme song is cool, and the humor is on point, but the plot is a little too much in the background for my tastes, at least in the first season, which is all I've seen since that's all that's on Disney+. Also, the secondary characters are more interesting than the main characters. But it's still a fun watch, and I'd recommend giving it a couple episodes. They're short (only 11 minutes) so you'll get a decent idea of what the show is like after two or three sets of them.

 

The Owl House

 

Another portal fantasy (I have a type...lol). HIGHLY recommend. It was one of my favorite shows I watched last year. Only one season is out so far, so it's pretty easy to catch up. Created by the girlfriend of Alex Hirsch (creator of Gravity Falls), and it has a similar vibe and humor style. Weird girl accidentally goes through a portal to a magical world called The Boiling Isles and decides to stay there for a few months instead of going to the boring summer camp her mom wanted her to go to, so she can learn magic from Eda the Owl Lady, most powerful witch on the Boiling Isles (and wanted criminal). Eda is voiced by the same lady who voices Beautiful Gorgeous, the green-haired girl from the opening is voiced by Katara's voice actress, and Alex Hirsch voices the cubone-looking fox demon and as well as the titular Owl House (who is named Hooty). Once again, HIGHLY recommend giving this a go.

 

Hilda

Light-hearted, gentle show based on a children's comic series. Screenplays are written by the comic author, so it's a very good adaptation/expansion. Little girl living in fantasy Scandinavia has lots of adventures with her friends and her pet deerfox. This show is so cute and it's definitely worth a watch, especially if you're in need of something optimistic.

 

Ducktales Reboot

ad76c793116c607d360dd9d5fa2389b034ca9cbb

 

I never watched the original Ducktales when I was a kid (this was back in the days when you had to pay separately for Disney Channel, which my parents didn't want to do), so I have no nostalgia for the series. But this is a genuinely good show. They made me like Donald Duck, which is a supremely impressive feat as he's my least favorite of the classic Disney characters. He's still hard to understand (but it gets easier the more scenes he's in, and it's actually treated in-universe as something akin to a speech impediment, which is an interesting take I've never seen before), and he's still filled with rage, but he's got some actual redeeming qualities. He just wants to be a good dad to his nephews, and apparently I'm a sucker for good parental-substitute character types/storylines in shows because most of the shows I'm talking about today have at least one relationship like that. I've seen seasons 1 and 2, and I can't wait for the third season to finally migrate over to Disney+ so I can watch it. Very good job balancing season story arcs with shorter arcs and episode-specific plots, and they actually made each nephew an individual with their own voices and personalities. What a shocker :rolleyes:

 

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

Catradora-in-She-Ra-Intro-opening-she-ra

 

Once again, never saw the original, but this show is GREAT. The theme song slaps, almost all of the most important and most powerful characters are women, lots of positive rep for BIPOC and LGBTQ+ characters, and it's just overall a fantastic example of storytelling and it's hilarious. Seriously, just one of the absolute funniest shows I've ever seen. Give it a go. One of the best characters is a talking rainbow-winged unicorn pegasus. Don't let anyone tell you he doesn't deserve a chair at the Princess Alliance.

 

Voltron: Legendary Defender

11559d24b15b21db5009b90e24090c83.gif

 

The last season was a major letdown, but everything prior to that was great. As far as I'm concerned, season 8 never happened and the show ended after season 7, which I loved. Character development is pretty great overall, minus a couple snags, animation is gorgeous, and the voice-acting is superb. There's a scene in the end of season 6 (you'll know it when you see it) that is just...one of the best scenes I've ever seen in a cartoon. Emotionally heart-wrenching, beautiful animation, beautiful music, beautiful writing and pacing. The main downfall for Voltron, I think, was that they were on a huge time crunch to get it out in a certain amount of time and tried to stick to certain story elements they'd laid out during the initial planning process and didn't want to abandon even though the story took a turn that made them make less sense. Still definitely worth a watch, though.

 

Tales of Arcadia

Technically a trilogy of cartoons. Trollhunters (first gif), 3Below (second), and Wizards (third). Created in that order, and I recommend watching in that order as well. Trollhunters is a standard Chosen One fantasy, but it's got a few good twists and unexpected story choices, and it's fantastic. Great character development, another parental substitute relationship that I love, lots of good humor, and very good balancing of series-arching plot and smaller plots. Also it has that trope of "let's redo an earlier episode from the series, but from another character's perspective, so you can see how bizarre their actions really are when taken out of context," which is one of my favorite tropes ever. Creepslayerz 4 Life. 3Below focuses on three other characters living in the same town, but is more sci-fi than fantasy, as they're all aliens who just accidentally crash-landed in a town that already happened to have a troll-based fantasy crisis going on. There is slight overlap in timelines for these two series, and you'll see occasional hints in the first season of 3Below about what the main characters from Trollhunters are doing, which is fun. They also do a lot to make parallels to IRL issues like racism/xenophobia, and call attention to sexism and ageism. The characters human disguises (a girl, a Latino boy, and a senior citizen) are specifically designed by their ship's AI based on her analysis of what the local culture deems "invisible/beneath notice." Wizards is a mini series, only 10 episodes, and it focuses on a guy who was a recurring background character in the first two series. It's a little less balanced than the other two in terms of plot and character development, but it's still very good and really expands the lore from Trollhunters. Also, great animation for all three, great characters, and a very interesting concept to have three different but inter-connected shows all set in the same universe. So props to Guillermo del Toro for trying something new. Trollhunters is my favorite of the three, so if you only watch one of the trio, go with that one. It's the most polished.

 

The Dragon Prince

elves.gif

 

High fantasy. Created by one of the head writers from Avatar, with a very unique art style. Two half-brothers befriend an elf who was supposed to assassinate them after the three discover that the egg of the titular dragon prince was not smashed, as had been believed for years, but was instead hidden. The three set out to bring the egg back to his mother, the dragon queen, in the hopes of stopping the centuries-long war between the magicless human kingdoms and the magically aligned elves and dragons. The egg hatches at the end of season one and the baby dragon is adorable. The cutest thing I've ever seen. The magic system is also very interesting, and one of the major characters is a Deaf woman who communicates exclusively through sign language, which is usually translated into spoken speech by her closest commander, but there are scenes where her dialogue goes untranslated for various reasons. I believe they use real ASL for her dialogue, though I may be mistaken.

 

Carmen Sandiego

source.gif

 

I love this one so much! Really cool lineless art style, they're constantly moving all over the world, and Carmen's an honorable thief returning historical treasures to their rightful places. Plus there's a big mystery element surrounding Carmen's origins, which she tries to uncover throughout the show. Lots of fun.

 

Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts

 

Holy SHIT. One of the best cartoons I've ever seen in my life. Easily in my top five of all time. The characters are all universally loveable, the animation is gorgeous, tons of scenery porn, really interesting world-building, and the music. is. AMAZING. Seriously. Not just songs the characters sing themselves, though those are good too, but the background music as well. My only complaint is that the background songs gradually got replaced by more serious instrumental scores as the series went on. I would've liked more rap, hip hop, and bluegrass jammin'. All three seasons were released on Netflix last year, and it's only 30 episodes total, so very easy to knock out in a few sessions. If you only watch one of the shows I recommend in this post, watch this one. You won't be disappointed.

 

 

I *think* that's all the major shows I've seen in the last two years. Sorry for the giant post, but I didn't feel like making a bunch of separate smaller ones.

Dragon Prince is great!

My latest show is Schitt’s Creek. I love it. It's like a warm fuzzy blanket. Funny, heartwarming with a biting wit.
