    If you're a 'comment before topic' kind of person, this is a kind of spoiler for the end of the video; other people bought the idea of making their own personal "Lessons Animation Taught Us"...

    It's a whole playlist, currently at a commendable 60 individual videos.

    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?
