Well, that was predictably quick! Um, so besides Cat People, let’s try to think of some other favorites! Lizzy’s gonna start, so, are y’all ready to “conduct the lightning?”

I will nominate Walt Disney’s Saludos, Amigos, nya! (tags Bunnii)
Disney’s various animated shorts that starred Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto. (tags Bunnii)
I will second those, and add The Looney Tunes, Merrie Melodies, Popeye, Tom and Jerry animated shorts! Back to Mike!
Man, it’s a tough call, but, I gotta go with the Our Gang and The Three Stooges shorts! Well, that was another expedient little Lightning Round! Ah, now to continue our movie topics, here’s Nya-sensei to review the latest in the Predator series-
Hai! I enjoyed the first two movies in the Predator series, but I was less enamored with the later ones. However, I was impressed by the purreview trailer for this latest one, which was released on the Hulu network, and I must say that this might be my 2nd favorite Predator movie, after the first one!
Written by Patrick Aison, directed by Dan Trachtenberg, and starring Amber Midthunder as Naru the Commanche warrior girl, Coco as her dog Sarii, Dakota Beavers as her brother Taabe and Dane DiLiegro as the Predator of the alien Yautja species, this’un occurs in the Great Plains in the year 1719.
In addition to the Yautja chap, the various Native Americans, and the group of French trappurrs, there are close encounters with numerous dangerous animals. The acting, stunts, costumes, hair & make-up, locations, FX, sound, mewsic, cinematography, and editing are as beautiful as beautiful can be!
Naru is so smart, wise, brave, strong, feisty and determined! Furthermore of great significance is that the film was shot in the English and in Commanche, and it can be viewed with either audio choice! There are also some clever nods and “Easter Eggs”, but I should not further risk spoiling the plot!
I will add that you should stick around for the surpurrise near the end of the movie’s end credits. I will give Prey he grade of the “A” as in Amber, and I hope that it will be released upon the DVD or the Blu-Ray with those language choices! I am done, and nyow here is Tara-chan to discuss—
Arigato, nya! Not to be confuzzled with Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel who used to be known as Ms. Marvel in the comics, this purrticular Ms. Marvel is Kamala Khan the 16 year-old Pakistani – American high school student and – and otaku who lives with her family in New Jersey where she wants to cosplay as Captain MArvel at the Avengers Convention, nya!
She is quite the popular supurr heroine who first appurred in Captain Marvel #14 in 2013, nya. In the six epurrode mini series which is part of the ther 4th phase of the MCU on Disney Plus, her origin and – and her supurr powers in the TV series differ from those in the comics, nya. In the TV series her power is to construct energy forms, purrhaps similar to Green Lantern, nya.
Her mewtant power is channeled through the ancient mystic bracelet that she inherited, but it is coveted by the dangerous aliens from the other dimension, nya! As if that was not enough dire trouble for Kamala, the Damage Control agency wants to arrest her, after her initial attempts to use her new powers accidentally caused the damages while rescuing people, nya!
She already had enough angst upon her plate as the teen girl with the misunderstood hobbies and the budding romance in high school while learning to drive the car and – and assisting with her brother’s wedding, nya! It is captivatingly bittersweet with great characters, fun slice – of – life aspects, thrilling action, poignant cultural developments, and – and tragic history, nya.
The wonderful cast includes Iman Vellani as Kamala; Saagar Shaikh as her brother Aamir; Zenobia Shroff as their mom Muneeba and – and Kohan Kapur as their dad Yusuef; Samina Ahmad as the grandma Sana; Mehwish Hayat as great-grandma Aisha, Fawad Khan as great-grandpa Hasan; Matt Linz as her best friend Bruno who reminds me of Peter Parker…
…Yasmeen Fletcher as Kamala’s friend Nakia at the Mosque; Laith Nakli as the Imam at the mosque; Rish Shah as Kamran who Kamala has the romantic crush upon; Minra Bucha as Kamran’s mom Najma; Laurel Marsen as Zoe the popular girl at school; Alysia Reiner the Damage Control agent… oh and there are the supurrise appurrances that i will not spoil, nya!
This wonderful mini-series has the great sets, locations, scenic art, costumes, stunts, dancing, FX, sound, mewsic, cinematography, editing and – and direction, so I will give it the high purraise grade, nya! I am curious as to when it takes place compurred to the rest of the MCU, expecially The Eternals movie, nya! I am done, so nyow here is Jenjen to tell us about the
Girls und Panzer Das Finale Part 3 Blu-ray, nya!
Hai, Ten years ago, the world was introduced to the meowrtial art of Sensho-do, the tank wargame depicted in the meowgnificent anime series Girls und Panzer!.

As mewsual, the story, characters, art, animation, voices, sound, songs and mewsic are supurrb, and brimming with charming, peppy fun, awesome armor battles, and the astoundingly intricate technical details. The
