    ParaNorman

    ★★★★

    Just one of the most fun adventure horror films ever made, animated or otherwise. It's got great gallows humor, snarky dialogue, a phenomenal score throughout, and it sets up an interesting world that is entirely recognizable but ultimately turned on its head to provide a serious emotional punch. The finale is stunning and features one of the most beautifully unique animated sequences ever, followed by a tender heartwarming ending that speaks perfectly to the film's themes of embracing who you are, bullying, and forgiveness. Yet another Laika gem and a new Halloween season favorite for me.

    Ranked: Laika Studios

    ★★★

    Such a beautiful bore. Way too much talking and a very slow pace, but as usual Karloff is amazing and so are the makeup and effects of the time. I love the atmosphere these black and white classic monster films are able to achieve, even if the story isn't as engaging as I'd prefer.

    ★★★

    The most shocking takeaway for me was that even in 1937 Hollywood was very self-aware of the culture it was forming and its cost on the identities and lives of those who dreamed to be a part of it.

    The Social Dilemma

    ★★★★

    “There are only two industries that call their customers 'users' - illegal drugs and software.”

    The most terrifying thing about watching this documentary is how much of this information on the dangers of social media I feel like I already knew, and yet I actively ignore it all because I'm addicted to the high of the drug.
