The Peanuts Movie

Since Mom's accident, I spend a lot of time at her house. We often watch movies.

Well, I had gotten the DVD of The Peanuts Movie through Netflix. Mom and I had enjoyed the various Peanuts specials over the years. We hoped that this one didn't get too messed up.

This one had something different. Something unexpected. Something wonderful.

I don't agree with the radical feminists on most topics. By the way, I'm calling them FamousFeminists now. But there was a FamousFeminist point or two that caught my attention. In many YouTube videos, they will tell you that objects are acted on and a person acts. Now of course they wrap it up in the politics of victimhood and will tell you that men always objectify women no matter what, That's not true and never was. But that is a topic for another time. Because right now you want to know what in blazes this has to do with a children's film.

For the first time I can remember, Charlie Brown stopped being an object and started being a person. In the film, he acts on things. He chooses to make things better. He helps his sister even if it costs him. He's honest when he gets credit for something that somebody else did. He keeps moving even as life knocks him down. This one film turned Charlie Brown from wishy-washy to a hero.

And for the first time, you can see just how much Snoopy cares for Charlie Brown. Snoopy sees things in Charlie Brown that others don't see. Snoopy believes in Charlie Brown when Charlie Brown doesn't believe in himself. Yes, Snoopy is very anthropomorphic, but the love is pure canine.

You've got to see this film.
