THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE (2016): An Easter Message From the Hatchlings

I know that the story of The Angry Birds Movie is generally about Red, ‘the one with the eyebrows’, but I’m obsessed with the cuteness of the baby birds, a.k.a the Hatchlings…

My wish is that these adorable little cuties feature as prominently as possible in the finished movie.

They may not quite be on the same level of cuteness as the Minions. However, the sight of them is certainly very seriously smile inducing.

The Angry Birds Movie is out on:  May 13th, 2016 (UK), May 20th, (US)…

MAGGIE’S PLAN (2015): New Trailer From Ethan Hawke, Julian Moore & Greta Gerwig

Directed by Rebecca Miller, Maggie’s Plan stars Julianne Moore, Ethan Hawke & Greta Gerwig in story that centres around a young woman who is eager to start a family on her own. The only thing is, she ends up becoming a mistress and breaking up the marriage of her professor lover and his wife (Moore)…

As you can tell from the trailer, there’s quite a lot going on. I like that Maggie’s Plan has been categorised as a comedy. Although, I don’t recall laughing, let alone smiling more than once during the trailer. The most exciting thing about this movie, for me is brilliant actress, Julianne Moore. Even more so because she’s sporting what sounds like a convincing European accent.

Travis Fimmel, Bill Hader, and Maya Rudolph make up other key supporting cast.

Maggie’s Plan Release Dates: May 20th, 2016 (US); July 8th, 2016 (UK)…

A new The Angry Birds Movie trailer has landed and I definitely like it more than the teaser

The use of Michael Jackson’s Bad seems to fit a little better now, perhaps. I can’t wait to find out if I’ll like this movie more than The Secret Life of Pets released two months later

THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE (2016): New Teaser Trailer For Rovio’s Hit Mobile Game

You’ve played the hit game created by mobile gaming application creator Rovio, you know the rage, now check out the movie trailer…

The Actors lending their voices to the characters include Josh Gad as Chuck, Jason Sudeikis, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, Danny McBride and Peter Dinklage.

I’ve only played the game once or twice, so perhaps serious fans have a different opinion. But this teaser trailer didn’t do a lot for me. Michael Jackson’s Bad also doesn’t quite feel like a good musical fit. The good news is, this is only the teaser so hope remains.

Currently though, The Secret Life Of Petsanother animated movie also out in summer 2016 is the one I want to see more.

BIG HERO 6 (2014): Excellent Robot & Best Big Brother…

Big Hero 6 is a fun animated action and adventure film that features interesting characters, beautiful visuals and the most adorable cuddly robot, Baymax. Or as the marketing team behind the movie have said, ‘a plus-sized inflatable robot.’

The Walt Disney Animations release centres around 14 year-old robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada and the relationships / events in his life that lead to the point where he forms a superhero team to fight against a masked villain.

My favourite thing about the film is of course, Baymax; particularly his beauty both inside and out.

I’m certainly no prodigy of any kind, but  Big Hero 6 did have me thinking about how best to apply my own passion, skills and talents.

Hiro’s general cleverness and the way that aspect of his character is revealed to the audience more than once is a definite highlight. Also, I may have actually fallen a little bit in love with Tadashi, the big brother character. How could one not, really? He’s probably the best big brother any 14 year-old boy could wish for.

Watch it for a really good Oscar winning animated adventure. Then join myself and all the other fans in looking forward to the sequel because you know it’s inevitable and you want it.

Until the next one…

Happy Film Loving
