The Umbrella Academy DAYUM!!

So where do I start with this crazy series that dropped on netflix a few days ago. I never heard of the comic but I will have to check it put when I have time, so let me jump into this. The umbrella Academy is a show about super power children all born on the same day at the time to several women. There is another major detail I am leaving out, actually there will be alot of major details I will refrain from stating that’s for you to watch and be just as surprised as I was.

As I was stating this series is about children with powers that grew up to be super heroes and possibly villains who were raised by a very strange old man, a robot and a talk chimp, yes I said a talking chimp. The series takes us through a puzzle which the main cast are trying to solve and move on with their lives.

As the series depict it is extremely difficult living life with super powers and as normal individual and sometimes those power come with added responsibilities of usage, simply don’t abuse such said powers which we heard time and time again in many power based series and comics. The series has many highs and some lows and some what the hell moments but I felt entirely entertained through out the Ten plus episodes. The conclusion was also a what the hell did I just see and hopefully if and when they return it is with a bang.

Check out this interestingly weird series on netflix as they seem to always have the weird on standby.

Beautiful animated short “KitBull”

Wow so I saw this beautiful animated short called KitBull. It was a masterfully done animated short done by some wonderful animators over at Pixar. Once the animated short started up I could not step away due to a unique 2d animated style and the charm of the short that beemed splendor. I was awe struck by how the world that the cat and dog who are the main cast felt so surreal and alive. The animation used a digital pastel style color palette meshed in with a soft brush texture and the lighting was a nice touch.
The animation of both the cat and dog was also spot on in terms of the playfulness of a kitten and pup who is trying to understand his world. Check out this beautiful short over at Pixar and don’t forget to watch the video about the filmmaker and the behind the scenes. Afterwards check out all of their other shorts and things on their youtube page.
