An intriguing story backed up by creative camerawork and a very unique score, Birdman is a journey of self-realization, something we all must do eventually in our own lives.

Directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore, and starring Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman, Zootopia takes place in a world filled with anthropomorphic animals about a bunny, Judy Hopps, who is an aspiring police officer. However, conflict arises when she is told that she is too soft for the job, creating an allegory for our world about racial stereotyping. When an otter goes missing, Judy joins forces with a seedy street-smart fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the case and prove herself as a valuable part of the ZPD. With a well-written story and super cute and funny moments, Zootopia allows for general family entertainment, while also pushing the envelope with its social undercurrents.

Welcome to Movie Night! Today, I sat down with my wonderful girlfriend, Jessie Vaughn and watched her favorite movie with her: 2004’s Ella Enchanted. Directed by Tommy O’Haver and starring Anne Hathaway, Ella Enchanted is a cutesy, heartfelt fairy tale story about a village girl cursed to obey anything that anyone tells her to do. However, conflict arises in the midst of a corrupt government where Ella feels that civil disobedience is necessary. Very dramatic! A product of its era, Ella Enchanted is wrapped in tropes from the early aughts; you can practically see the Juicy Couture sweatpants. Nevertheless, it is a charming feature that leaves you with a warm, bubbly feeling in your stomach that, plainly, makes you feel good.
