    It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown

    ★★★½

    Exploring Peanuts
    letterboxd.com/martinjacob49/list/exploring-peanuts/


    While it lacks the thematic substance of A Charlie Brown Christmas, It's Christmastime Again is still a watchable and enjoyable Peanuts special. Those who grew up reading the Peanuts comic strip will especially get enjoyment out of this as this entire special is comprised of gags and jokes taken out of those strips. Doesn't 100% qualify as definitive Christmas TV (in fact, its ending is surprisingly weak), but you get some solid laughs with your favorite Peanuts characters, and for that, I can't fault it too much.

    65/100

    I've reviewed Toy Story so many times on Letterboxd by now that it's not even funny, but it's still a movie that's defined my childhood and even my generation, so it definitely cannot be overstated. Pixar was practically born because of this movie, and have been a dominant staple of the art of animation ever sense. The fact…

    Reviewing the Commentary #1:
    Star Wars- commentary provided by writer/director George Lucas, Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), sound designer Ben Burtt, and effects director of photography Dennis Muren

    What I learned the most from this experience- Chewbacca's roars were provided by different bears, the lightsaber effects were provided painstakingly frame by frame via traditionally animated drawing cells, it took days for Carrie Fisher to get that hologram message scene right, Lucas' belief that Star Wars is not a sci-fi movie, his…

    Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

    ★★★★½

    An animated animal movie, made by the crudest animation studio ever, with no dialogue coming from our main horse characters except some cheesy narration from Matt Damon, a 100% serious plot with very little slapstick gags, alongside some top-quality and jaw-dropping mixtures of 2D animated characters and CG-animated landscapes, some high emotional trauma with sequences that rival How to Train Your Dragon, and the bizarre collaboration of music provided by Hans Zimmer and Bryan Adams of all people.

    One of DreamWorks' most spectacular and highly underrated films to date.
