Hello again. Not much going on this week, so, uh, I’m gonna talk about random things. Also, no picture, because… just because.
Here’s a question: why do some adults avoid animated movies? I always come across people who think that animation (2D or 3D) is for children, which confuses me a bit. Yes, many of these movies are marketed towards children, but many of those movies are also quite complex. And who says that a story made for children can’t be for adults too? This, to me, calls to mind a few quotes from C.S. Lewis:
“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
“A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story in the slightest.”
Additionally, have you seen how much work goes into animating a movie? There’s a lot of planning and technical work that goes into that stuff.
If anyone is an adult who is averse to watching animated stuff, I’d love to hear a thought.

For some reason I’m really hung up on the Five Man Band trope, and I keep trying to identify it in movies/shows/books with groups of five people. I’m always surprised by how many things fit the trope…
Also, have I mentioned how much I love looking through the TV Tropes website?
I just have to tack on at the end that I saw Wonder Woman and I was not disappointed. It was great.
