Ashley Ranks… Animated Movies

Ashley Ranks… Animated Movies

Do you know what sucks about getting older? That people become assholes and some of those assholes become those people who think animated movies are for children and children alone. I find that often animated movies are far more thoughtful, original and emotionally engaging in an industry pumping out movie after movie without another thought.

Why Kiki More Than Delivers.

Why Kiki More Than Delivers.

Kiki’s Delivery Service is hands down my favourite animated film. It took me a moment to figure out why it stuck with me so much as a kid and I think I’ve finally narrowed it down. 

Besides the fact that I was obsessed with magic and witches as a kid, Kiki presented herself as a character who was the most relatable to me. No matter how much I wanted it to happen, I never got magic powers or a letter to Hogwarts.

A girl can dream.
