Iron Giant Review But Told With The Details I Remember From 10 Years Ago
Indie Wire

The Iron Giant follows Holden Caulfield, a young boy 12 years age, who has no friends other than piles of scrap. At school he is bullied everyday because he talks to the squirrels that live in his family's breadbox. Holden’s mom works in a diner and the father may have died in a war but this is a kids movie so he’s just not mentioned. One day some guy imitating a beatnik comes into the diner and verbally degrades holden and his mother prompting an attack from the bread squirrels. He leaves, leaving no tip, and runs into the Iron Giant. The Iron Giant is a big Golem made out of scrap that is fueled by Holden’s resentment, dreams, and childhood whimsy. The Golem is essentially a baby and thus Holden has to teach it everything. For some reason the loser beatnik doesn’t tell the government about this giant killer robot that could definitely destroy the whole U.S because it can survive a nuclear missile strike. At this time the U.S only had about three of those bad boys lying around. Oh the robot also has laser eyes and can destroy tanks with a single punch.

Anyway, no one says anything about the mega death robot and somehow they keep it hidden in a garage. The Robot’s actually pretty nice until the government finds it and shoots it with everything they have which are in effect pea shooter to the GIANT METAL SCRAP ROBOT. The Robot proceeds to go on a rampage until Holden calms the beasts rage with true love's kiss. After this the robot flies into space and stops a nuke the government thought was okay to aim at a town in the U.S. showing us that anything goes in depression Era U.S.A. It’s a miracle we came back from that. So the robot stops the missile and breaks into a million pieces. The movie ends with the many bolts, arms, and legs of the robot slowly moving back towards the robots severed head in a scene straight out of a Stephen King novel, leaving millions of kids wondering when the Iron Giant will come to steal them from their beds and eat them.

I give this movie a 10/10, I think about it and shiver everyday.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
