Counterpoint; The Powerpuff Girls are slapstick cartoon characters who are partially defined by being chirpy, cutsey 5 year olds, it’s a bit like doing a Bugs Bunny live action reboot where he gets graphically killed and eaten by Elmer Fudd because “when you think about it, that’s more like what might really happen”.

I think it’s terrible in a fundamental filmmaking way, but there’s such a innate charm in how off the wall it is and goes about its business that it can definitely get behind your defenses as a viewer regardless and become watchable, even fun.

Oh man, you didn’t check in to see how this insane stretch of a nothing-burger was getting roasted over at The Root? Cause it’s getting no traction there, and it feels like their readership should know. Read more

“Way too quick to assume the worst” is definitely the case online, particularly on Twitter. Read more
