Comfort Movies: ‘Despicable Me’ and the Minion Takeover

Hey! Hallie here! Every time I watch this movie I’m reminded of how much I love it. Which is surprising because I wasn’t interested in it at all when the first trailers were released. All the trailers of Gru doing petty things, like making a child a balloon animal and then popping it, were nothingContinue reading “Comfort Movies: ‘Despicable Me’ and the Minion Takeover”

Comfort Movies: Jumanji Welcome To the Jungle

Hi! It’s Annie! Back to another movie that I have watched several times throughout quarantine and is always comforting to me.

But ifContinue reading “Comfort Movies: ‘Groundhog Day’”

Comfort Movies: Jim Henson’s ‘Labyrinth’

Hi! It’s Annie! Given the current circumstances, I’m kind of surprised that I didn’t come up with this category earlier.
