Thank you so much for reading! Comment down below which show you are most excited for.
Are you in need of something new to watch during the summer? Well, may I recommend some old childhood films you might have already watched? If you are like me, you’ve probably haven’t seen these movies in years, but here’s why they are worth rewatching or even watching them for the first time now.
Oftentimes, I feel like after watching a movie as a kid, many just check the film off their list and move on with their lives. But I think that some of these films should be revisited because the themes and language of the film can be understood much clearer when you’re older versus when you were only a kid. Sometimes you might even learn and appreciate something new about the film that you just weren’t aware of before.
However, I understand most of these movies are from the early 2000s era, so if you haven’t gotten the chance to watch these movies in your childhood, don’t worry! It isn’t too late for you either, as the majority of these films are mature enough to entertain their audience of any age group.
Disney / Pixar
Let’s start off with the classics. Disney and Pixar films have definitely ruled the early 2000s, just coming off their classic era and moving on to the “Renaissance Era” where film making turns more experimental not just in storytelling but a transition from 2D to 3D (for Disney at least).
The Incredibles (2004)
Easily one of Pixar’s most iconic series and most creative concepts with the comedic superhero family dynamic. Honestly watching this film as a kid, I remember the badass fighting scenes and the hilarious jokes they play out throughout the film. But rewatching this film, made me realize how Syndrome is such a well-written villain, not only having an understanding backstory that doesn’t seem too far-fetched but also having realistic goals. Also the jokes are still as witty and funny to this day, even touching upon more adult themes just as marriage struggles and raising a family.
And of course we can’t forget the greatest character lines of all time, Frozone’s “HOney, where’s my supersuit”.
Emperor’s New Groove (2000)
If you’ve been watching memes lately, you already know this film, so might as well give it a rewatch. Not only are the jokes 100% better in film due to the context, but this film has one of the most unique film stories Disney has created, with a young Peruvian based Emperor befriending a middle aged man and together they go on many “adventures”. Till this day, this movie has got to be one of my favorite Disney comfort films and it’s just a timeless classic.
Lilo and Stitch (2002)
Honestly, Lilo and Stitch was so ahead of its time with one of the most wholesome duos packed into a fun sci-fi adventure. The themes tackled in this movie with Nani having to raise Lilo all on her own, while barely understanding what to do with her own life is portrayed so realistically, that makes the film so much more impactful. Lilo’s goal of having a friend and finding that friendship in Stitch is something so powerful that goes beyond just a regular human with their pet sidekick.
Monsters, Inc. (2001)
Sully and Mike Wasoski have definitely had their fair share of meme spotlight, but maybe it’s time to rewatch the film. This duo faces many challenges in their friendships that are portrayed so realistically with Sully wanting to be more “good” while Mike wants to be able to scare someone so bad. Together they learn about each other’s perspectives and learn to appreciate what they have achieved. This theme of good vs. evil is written with such a well balanced plot that we can easily get emotionally attached to connections made between Sully and Boo. Also this film has so many more meme worthy moments that you’ll just have to find out with a rewatch.
Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)
Atlantis is one of Disney’s most underrated films, but also one of their best. However, with the help of social media and many film enthusiasts, this movie is finally getting the attention it deserves. The film explores the untouched mystery of a civilization beneath our oceans and does it so profoundly. Even all of the side characters are likeable and well written, with a lead protagonist someone that is so passionate about what he does, which can be relatable to most of the viewers.
Treasure Planet (2002)
Another cult classic film in the list of underrated Disney films, Treasure Planet. Now, I gotta say the worldbuilding in this movie is absolutely insane, combining the concepts of a futuristic steampunk, galactic adventure. Although the second half of the film does seem a bit confusing and doesn’t necessarily fit the plotline that well, the character arc of JIm Hawkins, the main protagonist, is exceptionally well written. For the characters and the worldbuilding alone, this film is worth the watch.
Now Ratatouille is one of the most “indie” aesthetic films Pixar has ever created, but the best because of it. Ratatouille is a story most worth rewatching because the themes are so universal and affect the lives of young adults the most. The theme of going after your dream, despite your background. This film tackles each of its themes so well, without needing the simple mainstream plotline of simply “attaining some objective”. No, Ratatouille goes beyond that by truly exploring deeply into the character arcs of both Remy and Linguini. This film is just a masterpiece that needs to be revisited or even watched for the first time if you didn’t get the chance to watch it in your childhood. Or if you are already a kid right now, please go watch this film, you won’t regret it.
Meet the Robinsons (2007)
Meet the Robinsons is definitely one of those forgotten Disney’s films that most kids watched but just don’t remember. However, it’s easily one of Disney’s best CGI attempts at a film with a great sci-fi school themed plot. If we just ignored the old graphics of the time, you will find an incredible film with a great moral for any age. The repetitive motto of “Keep moving forward” that is so motivating even for older audiences.
Wall E (2008)
Wall E’s dystopian world where humans no longer can inhabit Earth due to pollution, describes the possibilities of our future so well and so captivating. While also featuring a beautiful love story between two genderless robots, which forever changed how the world views robots as something innocent and sweet (contrast to previous 80s film view on robots like the Terminator).
Here are some other films I wanted to mention, but weren’t part of the Disney/Pixar franchize but should also be given a rewatch ro first watch.
Now, I feel that some people may visibly be confused as to why I would even recommend watching this nightmare of a film, but here me out. Coraline was a film that has traumatized many children including myself, but give it a second try. Not only will you find the film less scary but you may even appreciate the work that goes into the film and even find it aesthetically pleasing. The reason why Coraline is so scary is because it tackles themes of parenting and the relationship between a young daughter with her mother. This concept alone touches upon many of the viewers alone.
It honestly fascinated me how this film still manages to give a good scare to even older viewers, because bugs (cockroaches and spiders) are genuine fears that many people have, the thought of sewing buttons into your eyes is also just as frightening as Beldam herself. With all of these horror elements, it’s easy to ignore the actual soft worldbuilding that goes into this film. So if you want, give this film another go, or not.
Whisper of the Heart (1995)
Now of all of the Studio Ghibli films, I decided to put Whisper of the Heart on this list instead, even though it’s a lesser known film. Because even though their more famous films like Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, and Howl’s Moving Castle might be more worthy of your time, I hope that everyone has already watched those films and watched them many times.
For now, I want to take the time to discuss Whisper of the Heart, because not only are it’s themes perfect to revisit as you’re older, but it definitely has a more simple and realistic aspect to it, which I admire. The experience you go through when watching this film is simply unforgettable, as you follow Shizuku, the main protagonist, a struggling writer trying to find her purpose in life. (Something many teenagers out here can relate to, with the endless distractions that keep us away from following our dreams.) There she meets Seiji, a young boy in her same grade who has already found his passion and only needs to work for it. Between these two characters, they each learn something about the other’s perspective on life, which helps Shizuku gain the courage to go after her own dream. What I love most about this film and Studio Ghibli films in general is this feeling of immersion and peace when watching their films. Something that I just haven’t found any other company achieve.
Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
Probably one of the best Wes Anderson films out there, but also the most well crafted film. Clay animation is something that used to scare a lot of young audiences, but now after rewatching the films, this medium is very respectable as so much work goes into each frame. But in this film, it explores themes on greed, and the consequences that come with it, as well as exploring family dynamics as Mr. Fox and his misfit son Ashton Fox go on one last adventure.
Sequels / Series
Although the films I’m recommending are the sequel to these series, you should feel free to watch the entire franchize if you want as well. I solely picked them because each of these sequels is what made the series so popular and loved.
Toy Story 2 (1999)
Probably the best film in the Toy Story’s franchize with the most exceptional in depth continuation of the world these toys live in and their expressing their complex emotions to their owners. When you were younger you probably loved following the adventures of Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang trying to find Woody and all of their jailbreak scenes. But as you grow older to watch the film, you will probably follow Woody’s story more profoundly as he discusses his attachment to Andy and the struggles of being a “lost toy”.
Shrek 2 (2004)
After the success of basically mocking Disney’s turn on fairytale storytelling, Shrek was able to create a hilarious parody of a world filled with all of the characters we know and love today. However, with Shrek 2, the franchise is able to skyrocket with this immersive new continuation to the first film, further exploring ideas and questions that weren’t answered in the first film, like the Fairy Godmother and Fiona’s backstory.
Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008)
The adventures of the famous four misfits from the first film was such a success, that Dreamworks decided to make a sequel, which is the best decision they could’ve made. Now Madagascar won’t compare to Toy Story or even Shrek, but it sure is hilarious even after all these years. Also might as well rewatch this movie for the “moto moto” scene because it’s one of the most iconic dreamworks scenes ever.

February is going to be a huge month for Genshin Impact simps, as Xiao (the edgelord) will finally be released after the 500 leaks of him previously. So mark your calendars for February 3, since he will only be available for two weeks unfortunately.
But Keqing’s banner will be right after Xiao’s, so maybe it isn’t so bad (because it gives us hope that Mihoyo will hopefully give already released characters a chance of the spotlight too)

Keqing *first ever standard character on featured banner* February 17
** of course any of dates are subject to change or delayed **
Hu Tao *new five star* release March 3 [1.3 update]

Baal *new five star* most likely released September 1
type: electro spear (dual sword)
Sara *new four star* might be featured on Baal’s banner since they are kind of a duo and would be weird if she was on Kokomi’s banner… (edit: confirmed on Baal’s banner)

type: hydro catalyst
Thoma *new four star* he might be featured on the new five star’s banner in the 2.2 update. The quote “protector from afar” confirms that he is actually from Mondstadt but lives in Inazuma.
Also, because he is the only character leaked for the 2.2 update so far, this might be Mihoyo hinting at some possible re-reuns.
type: pyro spear
> rumored to be Ayaka’s finance and/or servant based on her English lines from the game [EDIT: Genshin has changed the voice lines, and they are no longer engaged… but “friends”]
After finishing off the Liyue Story Quest, we’ve already met various characters from our journey and many already released as playable characters.
Most likely from Mondstadt but there is little to no information about her, but her outfit design does look European, so I have to assume she is from Mondstadt.
Baizhu (Dendro / Catalyst) *should be released whenever the dendro element is finalized*
>> supposedly he has a cameo in the 2.2 MoonChase Festival in Liyue
Shenli (Cryo / Claymore) *DISCONTINUED*

Finally, the year for all postponed animes is here, and with 2020 officially over, let’s hope all of the “covid-19” postponements are done. With that being said, this year is definitely a great year for second seasons and season finales for many great animes, as well as brand new anime adaptations.

With the 1.2 Update right around the corner, many fans begin speculating about the rest of the future for the game, such as story lore and more exploitable parts of the map. So far, players have only explored Mondstadt and Liyue Harbor, but what else is in store? What lies beyond that coast off of Liyue Harbor and those closed off borders…
Upcoming Version Release Dates
1.2 December 23, 2020
First off, we have our most recent update, the 1.2 release, introducing characters like Albedo and Ganyu. In this update we also have:
– New Area: Dragonspine (A snowy region between Mondstadt and Liyue Harbor)
– New Characters: [Five Star] Albedo (Geo / Sword), Ganyu (Cryo / Bow) [Four Star] Sucrose (Anemo / Catalyst), Rosaria (Cryo / Lancer), Hu Tao (Pyro / Lancer)
However, the 1.2 release will most likely play out like the 1.1 update with Zhongli and Childe questlines. But neither Albedo or Ganyu will provide any further advances into the Archon Quests.
1.3 February 2021
One of the most anticipating events, the 1.3 update will definitely be exciting, as it’s close to the New Year’s event in most Asian countries and will celebrate with the Latern Rite event in Liyue Harbor.
So far, players mostly know of the 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4 releases from Genshin Impact, however there still more characters to meet and new regions to explore. So here are some unknown future characters who have yet to be decided which update and release they are a part of:
The Seven Nations of Teyvat
Now if you weren’t already aware of the seven emblems of the game, the playable map actually goes beyond that, with each emblem having their very own kingdom and region such as Mondstadt and Liyue. Here the five remaining regions and their inspirations:

2020 has been one hell of a year, with everyone staying at home and working online instead. However, it has been an amazing year for kpop with tons of new debut groups and retro style songs, it all helps to make 2020 a little less miserable.
That being said, some certain songs and groups even began trending as a result. Which was good publicity for the groups because they deserve so much more love and attention. So here were a few (fourth-generation) groups and songs that I feel truly made 2020 better!
With their latest comeback album “IN生” including title tracks like “God’s Menu” and “Back Door” the number of fans have increased drastically. Where both songs have reached 50 million views on Youtube like never before. (“God’s Menu” getting 100 million views within two months and “Back Door” getting 50 views within one month.)
However, I gotta say, one particular member of the group has definitely helped to fuel this excitement: Hyunjin with his blonde hair.
Ever since Hyunjin’s appearance in the “Psycho” 00’s group dance cover many people grew interested in the idol with the blonde hair.
Since debuting in 2018 with “Bon Chocolat” Everglow has been known to release songs with sickening beats and this comeback is no different. Their latest comeback track “La Di Da” is an absolute bop, with an 80s synthwave sound.
This retro styled song perfectly created a sound that represents the 80s. With instrumentals that are similar to Dua Lipa’s “Physical” which, in itself, has some Queen vibes.
The TXT members were already well known in the industry as they were BTS’s first little brother group. However, the number of fans has definitely increased now more than ever.
With Soobin’s Dolphin MC with Arin from OhMyGirl, many kpop fans began speculating the “idol with blue hair” and rightfully so.
His performance of OhMyGirl’s b-side track with Arin has captured many fans’ hearts as they sought to discover who this man was.
Also, TXT’s latest song “Drama” (Japanese version) had a scene devoted to haikyuu fans as all members wore uniforms from the volleyball anime, uniting both anime and kpop fans together.
So new MOA’s go stream “Blue Hour” comeback on October 26!
Thank you so much for reading! Comment down below some of your favorite songs or new groups you began to stan as of quarantine.
After their global release of Dynamite back in August (which felt like forever ago), BTS has decided to surprise us yet again with a brand new album coming in two months.
Mark Your Calendars!
BTS’s new album “BE” (deluxe edition) will be released on November 20, 2020, 2PM KST with pre-orders commencing on September 28, 2020 11AM KST (tomorrow).
The album is supposedly going to be about “even in the face of this new normality, our life goes on” which is truly inspiring, considering our current world events.
Some fans even speculated that this new album may have the same sound as Dynamite, or maybe a completely new sound we’ve never heard of before. BTS is no stranger to trying out new genres, so who knows what we can expect.
However, as we all know, that with a new comeback, means all the records we have to break yet again… and oh boy,
Thank you so much for reading! Comment down below your thoughts about what this new album may be about.
Two weeks ago on September 6, “Draco Malfoy” began to trend all over social media platforms once again. It all began with all the crazy Draco Malfoy-based content on TikTok.
One TikTok, creator @__belle__0 posted a #dracopov with 3.2 million likes and 11.4 million views. This video alone probably helped to send this trend viral, with everyone remembering their love for this character years ago. Everyone also began tagging #TeamDraco along with the many cosplays and fanarts of him.
Tom Felton (@t22felton) on TikTok (Draco Malfoy’s actor) even went on TikTok himself, to check out this new trend. Since we all know, he is deeply connected with his character.
But, the true fans have loved him all this time. <3
Thank you so much for reading! Comment down below your thoughts on this trend!
