Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

Narrowing options.

Finding Nemo was hailed by audiences and critics alike as a brilliant picture for all ages and, in our continuing quest to find movies we can watch with Blasty, C and I checked it out a few weeks ago.

Michael Hanscom's breakdown of the relentless sexism in these flicks kinda pre-empts my own criticisms, but it still bears being said that what passes for female "characters" in these ninety-minute toy commercials is a sick joke. Every woman in this movie is either deranged or murdered in the first scene... I actually think Pixar's treatment of women is actually getting worse with time. I thought Toy Story was bad enough, but wiht every new film, the studio is painting themselves further and further into an indefensible chauvinist corner.
