Adaptation Episode #95: If I Stay, It’s For the Music
In this two-in-one episode, Dorin and Kendyl discuss the novel If I Stay by Gayle Forman and it’s film adaptation. After falling in love with all the characters in the novel, the duo is rather harsh on the movie’s characterization, but give it credit for resisting the urge to be overly sappy.

Cutest Guardian of the Galaxy

still completely blown away by how amazingly well done this little guy is—they gave him an incredibly expressive face without anthropomorphicising it one bit. he doesn’t have a shorter snout or bigger eyes or a more rounded forehead or anything, he looks exactly like a raccoon. but you can see every little irritated or devious or sad thought he has.

just… amazing. i want that animation team to win some fucking awards.
