I have an unhealthy obsession with movies and Letterboxd seems like a good outlet for it.

    There’s a scene about halfway through where Katherine Heburn is sitting at a table alone and she sets it up in hopes that someone will come and sit down with her and then he doesn’t and she has this broken look on her face, and I think that’s the moment when this film clicked for me.

All the characters are great, Death is a terrific villain with an incredibly intimidating presence, Kitty Softpaws is way more likeable than in the first one, Jack Horner, Jiminy Cricket, Goldie and the Bears are all an insane amount…
