Help me out here.

Pepe LePew is too offensive for the new Space Jam movie, but Speedy Gonzales isn't?

With the demise of Apu I thought we'd moved beyond cultural stereotypes in animation, no?

It certainly speaks to the arrogant ego of employees that they are 'demoralised' at the prospect of their films going straight to Disney+ when their colleagues at Blue Sky don't even have a job any more.

often has those little blink-and-you-miss-it moments that can only be seen when you go over the movie frame by frame.

For example, the first movie (1989) is one of my top favorites but I've only recently found out that during the Babylon Ark break-in scene Hiromi flinches every time Kanuka fires her gun while sitting behind him.

This is made double-great when you know that Hiromi is a delicate gentle giant who doesn't like violence - that's a lot of character in two frames that the audience would most likely never notice.

Weather's warming up! What's one spring thing you're excited about? I'm looking forward to walks in the sun.
