The year was 1999, and three dollars was all it cost to buy a kid a ticket to another world. That ticket came in the form of shiny plastic foil wrapped around 11 pieces of cardboard: a Pokemon Trading Card Game Booster Pack. When my parents handed me that first pack, purchased from the game store in the local mall, I don’t think they knew it was a one way ticket. I never left that world of trading cards again, at least not wholly. I was changed by what I found there. Their old son never came back.

Another indefinite spur of lockdown in my home city means another indefinite spur of movies to comb-through and tolerate and, if I’m uncharacteristically lucky, enjoy.
7 Underrated Audrey Hepburn Movies
Audrey Hepburn's name is synonymous with her 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany's. Breakfast at Tiffany's is a classic, (even though some elements of it really don't hold up), and Audrey Hepburn manages to both look great in Givenchy couture, and display her range as an actress. Audrey Hepburn was a European with aristocratic origins, but she disappears into the character of Holly Golightly, a very American girl with dubious origins and a dubious profession who lives on the edge of New York Cafe society. But I am not here to recommend the movie that made Audrey Hepburn a cultural touchstone and style icon who transcends classical cinema. Instead, I am here to recommend seven of her films that live in the shadow of Breakfast at Tiffany's.
The Problem With Disability Stereotypes In The Media
As little as 3.1% of regular primetime broadcast TV characters have a disability, GLAAD statistics reveal. Although this is a record-high number, it still drastically underrepresents the real numbers (14.1 million people in the UK) of people diagnosed with disabilities. Moreover, while realistic representations of the disabled community are increasing, harmful inaccurate stereotypes are unfortunately still all too common and need addressing.
15 Novel Recommendations Using Just the First Line of the Book
Authors and publishers spend a huge amount of time and effort crafting a jacket blurb that will get you to buy a novel. This makes perfect sense; in a fiercely competitive market grabbing the reader’s attention is crucial. But maybe, in some cases at least, they’ve been overthinking things the whole time.
Movie Review: 'Cruella' is a Feast for the Eyes
Cruella is a punk rock visual fantasia shot through the prism of the Disney empire. Directed by Craig Gillespie, and starring Emma Stone, the film carries a distinctive aesthetic but one wonders what beats beneath the metaphorical chest of this spectacle. Sure, we do have the emotion of yet another dead Disney parent, one killed before our very eyes near the start of the film, but we’ve grown so used to this Disney trope that the impact is relatively minor.

Villainess Review: Cathy and Skylar Driver (Cradle Did Fall)
Lifetime took a break away from the batch of true crime films with this thriller, Cradle Did Fall, centering on Taylor Lewis and her infant daughter, Maya. Taylor later meets Cathy Driver, who introduced herself as a baby photographer, and offers to snap photos of Maya, with Taylor accepting. Cathy displayed a charming demeanor and continued doing so while introducing her daughter, Skylar, who was expecting. Similar to Cathy, Skylar turns on the charm, but as Cathy discusses her plans regarding Maya, we see Skylar head into the bathroom and open the window wide open.
Wish Dragon is a clumsy attempt, but you have to start somewhere
The trailer of Wish Dragon popped up when I finished Spirited Away on Netflix for I don’t remember how many times. This sums up my entire response after three minutes:

Pixar has always been my favorite animation studio, and they have blessed us all again with a Disney+ original, Luca. This film comes to us from long-time storyboard artist Enrico Casarosa in his feature directorial debut. Our story follows two young boys having fun in an Italian summer as they must hide the fact that they are sea monsters in a city that fears them.
7 Of My Favorite Courage The Cowardly Dog Episodes
7) The Demon In The Mattress In this episode, Muriel is sick of sleeping on the old, uncomfortable mattress, so she calls a sketchy salesperson to get a new one. Afterwards, two scary-looking characters deliver it to the house, one of them scaring Courage with unfriendly hisses and glares. Once the mattress was set up, Muriel immediately takes a nap on it. Being the cautious dog that he is, Courage checks to see if everything is okay, but to his horror, he discovers Muriel being possessed by a demon that was in the mattress. With Muriel, along with the whole room, presenting a green and chilling atmosphere, Courage tries to find ways to exorcise her, from challenging the demon to a thumb war to getting Eustace to chant a weird incantation while wearing Muriel's sleepwear, this being the funniest part of the episode so far due to the results. Once Courage does the incantation himself, Muriel is successfully exorcised but the demon ends up possessing Eustace. Unsatisfied with the mattress, Muriel has it returned with a possessed Eustace still restrained in it. It goes to show that the series has that genuine mix of horror and comedy.
