More “hunny” than Winnie the Pooh could handle — With “Christopher Robin” in theaters making Pooh fans teary-eyed with joy, I give you the sweetness of the last 64 UCLA Spirit Squad photos from last Fall’s Cal game

Did you grow up reading Winnie the Pooh or having it read to you when you were too young to read it yourself?  If so, and you were a fan of Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and the rest, you should enjoy Disney’s emotional “Christopher Robin” now playing in a theater near you.  With great cgi for the animals, Brad Garrett voicing Eeyore, and the same voice actor that you already know as Pooh, not to mention Ewan McGregor as adult Christopher Robin, there is a lot to pull on your heartstrings.  You know they are doing something right when they do a slow push-in on the face of an un-animated (for the moment) stuffed animal, and it still makes you cry.

If you DIDN’T grow up with Pooh, and want something a little more politically relevant, try “BlacKKKlansman.”  Produced by Jordan Peele, Directed by Spike Lee, and Staring Adam Driver, John David Washington (Denzel’s son), and Topher Grace (as KKK Grand Wizard David Duke!), this true story about the infiltration of the KKK is more important than ever right now, and the most “current” movie you could see, even though it is set in the 1970’s!  It is a very funny film, but Lee insists it is NOT a comedy, and you are not laughing as you watch the movie come to its conclusion.  It is a very well-made film, Lee’s best in my opinion (I have not seen them all, so take that opinion with a grain of salt), and it really makes you think about what’s going on in this Country (and the whole World) right now.  Yesterday was the 1-year anniversary of the Charlottesville march, with all its “very fine people” and their tiki torches and anti-Semitic chants.

So use your “Movie Pass,” before they go under, and enjoy some good cinema.  Meanwhile, here are the last 63 photos from the Cal game last year.  These are all Cheer Squad.  My next share will be from the Colorado game, and will include the Dance Team.  Today’s shots are all long-distance to the sideline, but when I get to the Colorado collection, there are lots of close-ups from pre-game festivities.  Come back soon to check them out.
