Pixar Popcorn

Last month, Pixar released 10 shorts that they call Pixar Popcorn. It's 10 short films, ranging from 1 to 5 minutes long. (Thank goodness the longest one is Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele just riffing on each other for 5 minutes!) Head on over to Disney Plus and spend 22 minutes munching on these popcorn snacks. 

And bite-sized shorts deserve bite-sized reviews: 10 shorts, 10 words per review, 10 kernel rating. 

"To Fitness and Beyond"

10 Word Review: Rex tries push-ups. Hamm attempts sit-ups. Need I say more? 

Rating: 6/10

"Unparalleled Parking"

10 Word Review: Montage of cars parking. Reminds me of adolescence. Lizzie FTW.

"Dory Finding"

10 Word Review: Best parts: Dory's glasses, Ellen's vocalizations, and all the bubbles.

Rating: 7/10

"Soul of the City"

One of the fun things to watch for in the Pixar Popcorn (besides Pixar's famous Easter Eggs) is the various interactions that Luxo Jr. has with popcorn kernels in the opening logo. Enjoy this Pixar snack!
