Thursday Movie Picks: New to the City
This week's theme from Wandering Through the Shelves is about those folks who are new to the city. They're mostly from a small town with big dreams. Truthfully, I know this should've come easy to me, but I struggled a bit. Here's who we're talking about this week.
1) Downsizing - Paul shrinks himself down to 5 inches for an economic and environmental benefit, so he's very new to his tiny city. This wasn't great, but it was very creative and Hong Chau gave a stand out performance.
2) Jetsons: The Movie - This is a favorite from my childhood. Judy's story was my favorite, and also best fits with the theme. Her being to a new city, finding a new boyfriend, and of course the space malls. I loved it.
3) An American Tail - The ultimate "New to New York City" movie. I stand by that this one is better than Fievel Goes West.
