Pumpking Coup

Welcome to the Halloween special! Still on hiatus, but couldn’t miss this. I’ve tried to keep politics generally out of this blog. There have been a few moments where I stumbled, like comparing him to Scar or saying King Triton wanted to Make Atlantica Great Again. But until now, I’ve never overtly called for the […]

The Rescuers

Before I start, I want to get something out of the way. After 9 months of putting this blog out weekly, I think it’s time for a bit of a break. I want to spend some time focusing on my book and getting my other weekly blog off the ground. I’ll definitely be back to […]

Faceoff

Nicholas Cage doesn’t do anything small. He’s what kids these days call “extra.” Or “100.” I don’t know, I’m not cool anymore, if I ever was.

So for the first time ever, Trigger Warning: Nationalism I’ve discussed before the fact that King Triton is an abusive father. He yells at Ariel, delivers ultimatums, doesn’t listen to her, and violently destroys […]

I never fully understood where the combat came into play, but I understood that it is supposed to be a defensive based art form. It’s something I […]

Elephant In The Room

Let’s just get this out of the way: Dumbo is a bad movie. It was made in 1941 in an attempt by Walt Disney to cut his losses after Fantasia flopped, because Americans in the early 40s were stupid and awful and I don’t care if it was the Great Depression, Fantasia was amazing. Clocking […]
