Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted

2012

There may or may not be spoilers. Read at your own risk!

I went in to Madagascar 3 expecting it to be as entertaining as the previous two Madagascar movies. Boy was I wrong.

This had to be one of the most boring kids movies I have ever watched. What the hell was DreamWorks thinking?!

The plot, for the most part, was far too serious for children and the Russian tiger was just a bit too mean and scarey. There was a slutty leopard or cheetah (whatever) that should have been toned down a bit, or maybe all female Russian animals are trampy.

In trying to lighten things up a bit they tossed in a dimwitted seal lion from what sounded like Italy. Ya, he wasn’t funny either, just dumb.

Halfway through the movie the Russian tiger is still a complete grumpy jerk who needs a big bottle of vodka to loosen that stick outta his bum, and I have yet to laugh more than once (we’ll come to that). This movie is the biggest stinker.

Oh… lest I forget the fat bottomed animal catcher woman that MUST get her lion. She will stop at nothing and I mean nothing. This goes beyond cartoon far fetched. At one point I wanted to smack her with a frying pan she was so annoying.

I truly hope this is the last Madagascar movie they make, as some things just need to die.

I wouldn’t recommend this movie unless you have 93 minutes of your life you no longer have a use for.
DreamWorks, you have F.A.I.L.E.D… ya, you heard me.

Now, for the part I laughed at… see below, the ONLY funny part of the movie…

Cars 2

2011Cars 2

Starring (the voices of): Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy and Michael Caine

I was a little disappointed in Cars 2. With five years in between pictures you would think Pixar would have done a better job making Cars 2 a little more entertaining.

In several places I found my attention waning. If it wasn’t for Mater and his silly antics I would have definitely fallen asleep.

I can’t say that I would recommend this movie, it’s just a flop. Well, maybe if you are looking for something to watch while trying to nap.

Pixar… If you plan a Cars 3 (let’s hope not), please review the first Cars film and do a little more of that and a lot less of Cars 2.

The horse was my favorite thing in the whole movie. Watch it, you’ll enjoy it. If you have kids they’ll love it.

Despicable Me

If you like animated movies, you will LOVE this one! Watch it!
