    Much better than last year, at least. Even if you need to use newreddit now.

    If you're stupid enough to put garlic in your vagina, you almost deserve the consequences.

    I was unable to pronounce "sword" in any way other than by its spelling for a while

    Well apparently animation taught him nothing. He talks about The Sword in the Stone for a long while but he doesn't actually say much. He almost analyses the movie but he doesn't have a point. And the movie seemingly taught him nothing. Then he talks about Spirited Away and says it taught him to look at movies more deeply. Ok, but then he goes on to look at Dumbo in the most surface level way possible. I didn't know it was possible to take Dumbo at so much face value, but he proved me wrong.

    This movie is on fucking drugs

    Of course he'd think that when 2 different narrators, or the idea of dehumanisation is too confusing for him.

    it decides this is sweet for some reason

    Yes? The mother gets to see her baby again, despite all the hardships they've been through. Hope in spite of tragedy. Dumbo is even crying in the scene, how can he miss the point so much?

    it literally cuts to a scene of uproarious laughter after showing us all this inhumanity

    Yes. To show contrast between good elephants and the cruel, heartless clowns. Then he acts like the movie is being unintentionally self-aware, when it's just spelling out the message he's too dense to understand. Also why does he talk in this weird, monotonous, yet irregular way? At 2:14 it sounds especially weird.

    I thought this video was just gonna be another person thinking animation is a genre, but it was so much worse. And there are 60 more of these?

    Looks interesting. I just hope the movie doesn't have too many jokes, because the ones they have shown are not very good.

    Sounds more like social democracy.

    Democratic socialism is a process of adding socialist concepts to a capitalist market to balance inequality and supply benefit to everyone and not just the people at the top. Having socialist networks setup to provide the basic necessities like education, healthcare and public transit are the foundation to allow entrepreneurs to be successful without as major of risks.

    This might be a stupid question, but why does the url say "Coronavirus could hit American workers especially hard", while the actual headline says "The Problem With Telling Sick Workers to Stay Home"?

    The opening scene might be the best part of that movie, it reminds me of Pixar's short films.

    Can people not make videos about movies without calling them "forgotten masterpieces" or "underrated" all the time? Just say the movie is good, you don't need to talk about how it doesn't get the recognition it deserves. It's especially annoying when there are thousands of people talking about how "underrated" the movie is, when it clearly isn't.
