“Of the Month” November 2016

Movie of the Month:
the-little-prince-movie-poster
The Little Prince

A very beautiful film, and an excellent blend of different animation techniques. It tells not only (most of) the story of the original Le Petit Prince novella, but it also creates a framing story and in a weird way a sequel. A surprisingly delightful and very moving and mature story about the joys of childhood, dealing with loss, and the importance of memory.

Show of the Month:
other-space
Other Space

Imagine if some of the creators of Mystery Science Theater 3000 decided to make a wacky sci-fi sitcom, and the picture in your brain would probably look a lot like Other Space. And that’s no coincidence, since both Joel Hodgson (Joel of MST3K) and Trace Beaulieu (Crow & Dr. Forrester of MST3K) are involved in Other Space. It also has excellent comedic performances from Milana Vayntrub (best known as Lily in those AT&T commercials) and Karan Soni, best known as cabbie Dopinder from Deadpool. Other Space is about a bunch of incompetent weirdos trapped in a parallel universe. Unfortunately it is only 8 episodes long and more episodes look unlikely.

Instagrammer of the Month:

Taste of Streep

Take photos of Meryls Streep. Use uncanny skill to combine them seamlessly with photos of food. Voila: Taste of Streep. It makes me laugh a lot.
