    Raya and the Last Dragon


    My first movie theater experience since The Invisible Man on February 29, 2020.

    I knew I missed going to the theater, but I didn't know how much I missed going to the theater. When the lights dimmed, the screen widened, and the Disney Animation short film began I burst into tears. I've rarely experienced anything like that. It was just pure emotion, a visceral reaction, and it will be something I'll never forgot. GDit I'm getting choked up a little…

    An appropriate runtime
    I learned something
    The folks in the film learned something about themselves
    Good, relevant narration
    Sensationalism at a minimum
    Great cinematography (particularly in a nature doc)

    The guy in this film must have that brain function like the guy in Free Solo where they both suppress their fear emotions. He sees a shark, he swims towards it. I see a shark, I'm out.

    It is so…
