When it comes to Disney and Pixar they usually make films lately to explain to children what friendship is, what family is (not always blood) and so on. And they been doing it using animals or aliens. And Zootopia teaches you about friendship and not judging other people based on who they are and where they are from.
Judy, a small little bunny from a faring village outside of the city Zootopia. She got some vivid imagination and as a child she wanted to become a the first bunny police officer. Obviously, people mocked her for her dreams. But once she became an adult it was off to the academy. What happens next? She graduates. Her assignment is; Zootopia. She’s excited but for her parents, they get a little worried. Specially knowing Zootopia got foxes. So they try to give her some fox repellent.
Once on the job, Judy meets a fox, Nick. He seems nice at first wanting to buy an ice cream for his son and she falls for it. Judy gets the assignment of finding missing otter who been missing for 2 weeks and her first lead seems to be Nick. So she goes and find him and black mails him to helping her (kids, never do that). While trying to find the otter they unfold something bigger, a lot of animals from the predator family have gone missing and no one connected the dots until Judy and Nick finds ALL of the missing animals. But why exact;y is a specific kind of animals going insane? It can’t be just DNA, something else must be behind it and Judy is determined to find out why.
‘Zootopia’ is a fantastic film for kids and adults to watch, I love watching it and seen it a few times already. It contains a lot of humor for the adults and kids.
Actors: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Jenny Slate, Nate Torrence, Bonnie Hunt, J.K Simmons and many more.
Who doesn’t like singing animals who dance around? Well anyone who got dogs or cats videos in their search history. “Sing” is a fun family animation film with singing animals who dance around. We got some famous people lending out their voices for this film such as; Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey, Taron Egerton, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Saunders and many more.
“Sing” we meet different characters from different backgrounds, we have a teenager who want to sing but her boyfriend is holding her back, we have a stay at home mom who is under appreciated. A teenage boy who’s dream is to sing but his dad want him to join his robbery gang, another teenager who got stage freight but who’s singing voice will make you go WOW. We have a washed up theater owner who’s dream is to make it big as a theater producer so he comes up with a singing contest. Original prize was to be set on 1.000 dollars but a mistake is made and it’s set on 100.000. The owner is in trouble with the bank that he owns money to so he really need to make this show a hit.
“Sing” must be one of my favourite animation film since Zootopia & Home. Also two film you really need to check out. All three having a message that anyone can relate to. So just sit down with your kids or just yourself, bowl of popcorn or whatever and just enjoy.
Voice actors: Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey, Taron Egerton, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Saunders, Tori Kelly, John C Reilly, Seth MacFarlane, Nick Kroll and many many more.
When it comes to Disney they seem to stick with the formula that works, a pretty girl, stubborn hero, saving the world.
“Moana” is based on ancient Polynesian culture, there’s this demigod who steals a goddess heart and this heart is the heart of all creation. So when it go stolen by Maui the world slowly started to crumble, there was no fish to fish, plants dying and Islands becoming inhabitable. When Moana was a little girl the ocean showed her the way her life needed to take, she listened but her father did everything he could to prevent her from leaving the Island her and her tribe lived on. But as a preadult she is starting to see how the Island is dying and she listens once again to her calling, with a little help from her grandmother – the village crazy.
So Moana sets sail to find Maui, the demigod who stole the goddess heart so he could put it back. And it won’t be so easy, since he’s a demigod and still believe he’s everyones hero, even though he stole the heart of all creation. It takes a lot of convincing from Moana to make it happen.
The film got it’s regular cheese platter and as it does have a strong female lead, a woman who saves the world, it’s nothing special about the film. It’s a Disney film. It missed the magic that the Disney films used to have back in the day with Aladdin, Beauty and Beast etc. For me the highlight of “Moana” must have been the chicken, they got a retarded (yes) chicken who well.. he makes the film.
Voice actors: Dwayne Johnson, Auli’i Cravalho, Rachel House, Temuera Morrison, Jemaine Clement and many more.
We all know angry birds as a game and it blew up as this big thing. I played it once or twice but I never really jumped on the angry birds train. So when I heard that they where going to make a movie of the game I was simply wondering how would they make it and how would it come of as. I saw it earlier this day and I have to say they managed to make it quite nicely. It had its very funny moments and I was just sitting and laughing til I cried.
Red is was abandoned before he was hatched and was made fun of because of his huge eyebrows so he kept to himself since he was little. Which made him into an angry person and very lonely. Til one day he was told by the judge to attend angry management classes. Which he is hating. During one class he and the others hear some noise and everyone is running to the beach where a boat is coming in. Filled with pigs and of course destroys Red’s house that he have built at the beach.
Red is very cautious about these new arrivals and he is suspicious. But everyone else seem to be very welcoming and throws a party. The island welcome the pigs and Red is the only one who doesn’t trust them. Til one night when the pigs throws a party for the birds to only steal their eggs. So of course Red takes help from two other birds, Bomb & Chuck from anger management class to track down Mighty Eagle. A former local hero.
The island turns to Red to come up with a plan to rescue the eggs. Because Red was the only bird who saw for who they where and others didn’t. So now Red have to come up with a rescue plan to save those eggs that the pigs want to eat!
Voices: Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, Peter Dinklage, Sean Penn, Keegan-Michael Key and many more.
We all know Hotel Transylvania and how much we loved it. The monsters and Dracula running a hotel in Transylvania for monsters. And how the human boy came to the hotel and thought it was some sort of costume til he learned it was all real. And how he adapted and fell for Dracula’s daughter Mavis.
Now it’s a little later and Mavis got married to Jonathan and they have a little surprise – she’s pregnant. The hotel is human friendly now and Dracula trying to get used to how fast the hotel is moving into 21st century. But there’s also a little something he is worried about – his grandson Dennis. Is he a vampire or human? And he want to know now so he will do anything to find out. If Dennis is vampire – Mavis will stay at the hotel since she said they will move somewhere else and Dracula is now desperate to keep her. So what he does next is to scare Dennis so he gets his fangs. But all Dracula manage to do is make Mavis upset and jeopardise their relationship. So who will Dracula do this? And is little Dennis a vampire or not?
Hotel Transylvania 2 is cute and a really good film. Usually sequals can be boring but not this one. This one was just as good and I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s the perfect film for the family to watch during a rainy day.
You hear voices from Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, David Spade, Keegan Michael Key, Fran Drescher, Molly Shannon and many more.
