There's a lot to be disgruntled about when it comes to Netflix lately. The constant cancellations of our favourite shows, the ever-increasing subscription prices, and perhaps the most diabolical...their continuing efforts in cracking down on password sharing (dam those bastards!). But, for those of us that are animation lovers, one can't deny the continuous supply of great original content the streaming giant has been pumping out over the last few years. Next up? The Sea Beast! and early impressions have me excited.
This year, Nintendo Switch only gamers had to endure watching their multiplatform counterparts enjoy the open-world goodness of games like Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West with great envy. That envy was somewhat eased with the knowledge that the sequel to one of the best Switch games was on its way to the platform this year. Well...until it wasn't:
First of all, I have to get this off my chest. Kirby sucks! He really does! Now that I have gotten that overused pun out of the way let's gobble up the real meat of the matter.

The only problem is the last set of movies (the likes of Trolls: World Tour and The Croods: A New Age especially) left a lot to be desired. I mean, I found The Boss Baby: Family Business to be ok, but I am more than happy they are returning to an old favourite with Puss in Boots: The Last Wish.
It has been over six months since we were blessed with a Pixar movie, and if you are anything like us, you have been craving a new adventure. Luckily, our cries have been heard, as Turning Red is releasing this week, but can it scratch that Pixar itch? Here's a round of what the critics had to say?
Ah yes...1997...the stock market crashed, Mike Tyson bites an ear, and OJ got squeezed. A truly memorable year that also gave us arguably the greatest sim racing series of all time, Gran Turismo. For a very long time, the Gran Turismo series was king, but in the last decade or so, its crown had been challenged (and in some people eyes even eclipsed it) by the emergence of the Forza series.
