    Just discovered your podcast after reading Jon’s piece on disability and Toy Story 4, so I was thrilled to hear you mention it briefly on the show. I have issues with mobility, so I could see Jon’s point about Gabby Gabby in this film desiring a technological route to connecting with others. It’s a tricky subject, but I think the movie handles it well.

    Why no hate for the worst movies of the year so far?

    When are you all watching MIDSOMMAR, and can I join?

    The Toy Story movies mean the world to me because they mean the world to my kids. My daughter just turned 12, so she was able to see Toy Story 3 right when it was feasible for her to sit in a theater. Watching Toy Story 4 with her and my son (5yearsold) was just a purely joyful experience I can’t get with most other movies. My son was too young for How to Train Your Dragon 3 from earlier this year, and my daughter thought UglyDolls, Secret Life of Pets 2, and Lego Movie 2 all looked too “kiddy” for her. I’m so appreciate of how Pixar allows for all three of us to get to theater without worry for what we’ll see. I know it’ll be entertaining enough for them, but also thoughtful enough for me.

    What do you guys think about The Office leaving Netflix? I know it’s not a cinema topic, but I’m starting to wonder what I should do about all these streaming services splintering off into their own pricey packages. I’m starting to wonder if I should instead invest my money in physical media, but when are DVDs and Blu-Rays obsolete?
