    Turning Red

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The message of embracing that weird and loud side of yourself is good but this film does a terrible job of conveying it.

    From the first scene it appears the panda is established as an inconvenience, Mei-Mei can't experience strong emotions without turning into a giant smelly creature, she can't get angry and she can't acknowledge how cute kittens are.
