Go ahead and make fun of me—I really do not care—but Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole is COMPLETELY GOOD. First of all, the animation is nuts. The owls look like actual owls, only with emotions and jokes and magical warrior helmets. Secondly, all the cutest types of owl are included—which are, in ascending order of cuteness: barn owl, burrowing owl, baby owl, elf owl. Pay attention. ELF OWL. Third of all, why are you such a bully? Owls are the nerds of the animal kingdom. They're good at only two things: being quiet and graduating from stuff. So why not let them have their day in the sun this once? I mean, not literally. They're owls. They're nocturnal. IT'S A METAPHOR. (See Movie Times: thestranger.com/film)
