Movies You Love Podcast [Ep# 29 – Batman w/ Kristy Puchko]

It’s time for a whole new chapter into the Movies You Love Podcast era. No it’s not changing to a new format, no it’s not moving to another night, no we’re not making it about video games — or should I? Actually when you think about it nothing’s really changing about this show. I’m just kind of saying all of this because I’m releasing a new episode — which you can hear below.

I feel like I should be making some kind of lap around the internet with this one, and at the same time if people in the real world who know me saw this I can imagine all the triple eye rolls that would happen.

The Cat Returns feels more like a lazy repurposing of previous works than anything else. If you force one to create a random adventure story of a youth being thrust into a strange world — something that Ghibli is known for doing – but instead of making the world any form of interesting, are you killing your soul?
