    It really says a lot about the Academy that they don't do a good job making their nominees look appealing. But it could be an indictment of all of Awards season that a lot of these movies look like they're going to be work to watch. Some of the reviews did say this was crowdpleasing but everything around it made it look like the more unfun, stuffiest thing. It's not at all.

    I don't think I'm going to keep this Disney Plus thing. They're not making things I'm at all interested in paying for. Bring back Legion and then we'll talk. But this has Emma Stone so that's why I watched it. I was surprised that they allowed director Craig Gillespie to make this like I, Tonya and it's a miracle this is one of the few unique things they allowed to get made. Love the needle drops. Love Emma. The story isn't mindblowing and the callbacks to the original are unnecessary. Emma Thompson is funny as the villain. Will definitely be watching the second one.

I love how much it's willing to play with the…

    I really liked it. The animation is well done and I enjoyed a lot of the actors doing the voice work. It doesn't have the emotional depth that I feel like a lot of Wes Anderson's other movies have but that doesn't make it any less entertaining. It was something different from him, which I appreciated. The story is very simple but it works very well for what the movie is trying to accomplish. In a way, it feels very…
