Cartoon watchers with jobs

Good on the original creators and all, I'm sure we're all eager to see what ideas didn't make the cut over "Jubilee's Fairy Tale Theater," but I'm just blown away at the idea of a creative enterprise with nigh unto infinite resources saying "What if we just did the thing from 30 years ago?" But, it solidly answers my questions of how a notoriously chaste organization is going to bring something as freaky and deaky as X-Men into today.

Gen: Lock season 2 is out. The world suddenly got bigger and darker with a LOT of important backstory and details from season 1 filled in. This feels very different than the first season but I'm very intrigued as to where it will go. Also includes an unnecessary (IMO) adult scene that I was definitely not expecting from this publisher.

Nice! I really enjoyed season 1, so I'll definitely check this one out.

Finished Part 2 of MotU: Revelations. It's trying to explore somethings with the nature of power and the quest for power, but just isn't good enough to stick the landing.

Though the 5 year-old in me is still excited to see the big fight scenes, and the 10 year-old in me is still exited for the tease at the end.

Watched Ron Gone Wrong and thought it was okay. Its about a boy that befriends a robot that is wrong. They learn how to make friends and something about social media is learned.

Also watched Rumble which is about giant monsters that wrestle, Okay movie nothing special. Kids probably will like it.

Encanto was pretty good. I didn't know anything about it before watching it. Its about the island of Krakoa that gives a place for humans with special powers to live. However, one girl doesn't have powers. When disaster strikes it will be up to this girl to save mutant kind.

The music was good for the most parts. A few toons didn't hit with me but that didn't hurt the movie. Animation looked good but didn't do anything new. The story was all about family, simple, and very good. A nice movie to watch with the family.

Lol. Love the description. I enjoyed the movie a bunch. Is it a masterpiece? Probably not, but a really good family film.

Watched The Breadwinner which was great. A very sad movie, think Grave of the Fireflies sad. At the end of it I had no idea why it was called Breadwinner. I looked it up though and it is a good title. I thought there was going to be baking contest or something, nope.

Wow. Uh...season two definitely took a massive left turn from the first season. I think I have conceptual whiplash or something. I think I read somewhere that nearly none of the original writers were involved with the second season...and it shows. I had a lot of high hopes for this because they had a lot of interesting ideas to explore but the story telling felt hasty, rushed, and in many cases just sloppy. The final episode in particular seemed to try to wrap everything up too quickly with some tired old tropes. The very end was actually kind of interesting but I really wish that they had taken a different path and maybe another season or two to actually get there.

I'm still not quite sure how I feel about it right now. About mid-season I was actually considering giving up on it after some key events took place...but it did sort of pick up again and I'm glad I finished it at least.

At least Hilda and the Mountain King was good. I really like that series and they ended the huge season 2 cliffhanger very nicely.

Didn't know about Hilda and the mountain king. Going to have to watch that next.

I love everything that studio puts out.
