    Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus

    ★★★★

    It's... it's so beautiful! I... I never thought I would see the day! 13 years of waiting and it was all worth it!

    Still fantastic after all these years. When I first saw this years ago, I had already heard about how supposedly great it was, and I was still blown away. I wouldn't say it has quite the same impact the second time around when you already know the twist, but the brilliant film making, excellently portrayed atmosphere and great acting never age. You definitely wouldn't make a film like this today, especially considering how slow it is, but I honestly enjoy…

    Expertly crafted and thought provoking horror!

    Fantastic Mr. Fox

    ★★★★½

    Why has no one forced me into watching this film before? No, I'm being serious with that question. Anyone's reaction to hearing that me, the animation nut and gusher over stop motion animation who sees The Nightmare Before Christmas as one of his top 5 favorite films has not seen Fantastic Mr. Fox should be to knock me on the head with a bamboo stick, chain me to a chair and put the film on.

    Fantastic Mr. Fox is... well...…

    You know, I just noticed Lord Business has two red cups on his head.


    Why's he got red cups on his head?

    I hated it!

    It's okay.

    Ronal the Barbarian

    ★★★

    So here's a film I never thought I'd actually watched, but I eventually thought "eh, what the hell". Not sure I liked it as I'm not really into this sort of crass humor, but it's a well-made movie to be sure, and a lot better than I really want to give it credit for. In a weird way I can respect that that for as vulgar and intentionally ugly as it is, it goes all the way with practically no…

    ★★★★

    The first of the Pixar SparkShorts, in which Pixar gives indie filmmakers resources to make whatever short film they want in six months. If this short is anything to go by, it's resulting in shorts that close to the quality of Pixar's animation while also being very different from what they would usually make, and I can only applaud this.

    Purl is based around director Kristen Lester's experiences as the only woman in her workplace and how she realized only…

    "Ever since man first left his cave and met a stranger with a different language and a new way of looking at things, the human race has had a dream. To kill him, so that we don't have to learn his language or his new way of looking at things."

    I'm not gonna lie, I had to watch this one twice in a row to try to understand it, and even now I'm not entirely sure how to feel about…

    ★★★★

    I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I... mean... uhm... let me just... So , uhm... the movie's good, I guess. Let's judge it fairly and whatnot.

    As I watch and rewatch the series in order, I've now seen the first four seasons of the series, which seem to the ones most fondly remembered by fans, and so far I can say that Futurama is an interesting series. And by that I mean it's had its highs and…

    And we're starting over! ('Cause the song's getting too long.)
    On the thirteenth day of 'cember, the advent gave to me
    One stolen baby jesus

    This is one of the cutest things I've ever seen, and it's about kidnapping baby Jesus! Well, okay, just a doll of him, but still.

    A Christmas Carol with Jim Carrey was nice and all and The Polar Express... wasn't, but it feels really good to see some genuinely good CGI again. The character models…
