Way Too Seriously is a weekly podcast in which Jan and Paul Moffett talk about the implicit biases, the assumptions, and the thematic implications of kids’ movies with exactly the appropriate level of seriousness.
On this episode of WTS we’re talking about Boxtrolls. We cover Laika’s race problem, cheese as a metaphor for social privilege, and whether everything would be better for everyone if Mr. Snatcher could just be a drag queen.
