Encanto ★★★

Disney Animation Studios X-Men

Not cynical review: The animation is pretty stunning, the music is very catchy and fitting, the animation for the musical numbers are possibly Disney’s best since their renaissance period, the message is kinda sweet and wholesome. Lin Manuel Miranda 👍

Cynical review: I’m very tired of every single Disney Animation Studios film having a twist villain or misdirect. It’s starting to become pretty lazy, give us actual good villains again, no more twist villains you can see coming, no more plot misdirects. The ending wrapped up a bit too neatly for me. The family learned that their gifts aren’t what define them and they rebuild the house and then they just get the magic back, would have been more satisfying a journey if they were left powerless but grateful for each other. Lin Manuel Miranda 👎
