Mr Peabody and Sherman

This year, we get the chance to watch one of the funniest animations ever. From the director of the absolutely amazing The Lion King, the new comedy Mr Peabody and Sherman is going to make us laugh like no other animated film did.

Mr. Peabody is a dog father, who besides parenting his little adopted son, has to do a bunch of other things. Being the most extraordinary dog of the planet, Peabody creates an awesome time machine. He names it WABAC and together with his little son, they get involved in different adventures related to the history of our world. Starting with the history of art and ending up with the fearless stories about the courageous Trojans, this movie brings it all out.

Sherman is the little restless kid, who is going to make us laugh really hard. His feelings for a cute classmate named Penny Peterson will make him reveal the secret of the WABAC machine. Together with Penny, they will travel in time and there is going to happen something that’s totally wrong and not okay. So now, the amazing dog father will travel back in time, in order to repair the damages that were done to the past. Saving the future will be his main goal and of course, he will achieve it.

Next to the amazing narration of our history, we get to see so much fun stuff going on. There is ridiculous stuff going on in the Ancient Egypt and there is so much fun during the creation of Giaconda, by Leonardo Da Vinci. Mr. Peabody may be the one who made Mona Lisa smile. Imagine how he can make us laugh. This is why Mr. Peabody & Sherman is proclaimed by many critics “The Dog Father of all Comedies”.

 In March, we have the opportunity to witness the incredible adventures of Mr. Peabody. Do not miss the chance of learning the history in the funniest possible way. You will simply fall in love with these cute characters and their stories. Meet the extraordinary dog – watch the father of all the comedies Mr. Peabody & Sherman.

What are the greatest creatures that have ever ruled the world? Dinosaurs of course! Not only because of their strength and volume of the roar, but also because they survived here for over 160 million of years, even if it was extremely cold or hot, or meteorites were falling down on the earth, they survived.

20th Century Fox brings us a movie that is going to blow up your minds. Walking with Dinosaurs is a new animated film, based on the massively successful series with the same name, which is supposed to make you feel like you are next to the dinosaurs. A movie centered on a young Pachyrhinosaurus, named Patchi, that seems small, weak and inexperienced, who is going to live the adventure of his life. The Walking with Dinosaurs trailer gives us a little look at the aggressive and high roaring fight of a Gorgosaurus and a Pachyrhinosaurus. Gorgon is a representative of the Gorgosaurus type, he is the rapscallion of the movie, being fast and terrifying, he is always awaiting the next kill. Patchi’s father was killed by a dinosaur of this kind, so the presence of Gorgon is very pungent for our hero. Also the Walking with Dinosaurs trailer intrigues you with awesome graphics that make it all look authentic and full of life.

There are so many things we still do not know about dinosaurs and at the same time there are many discoveries made every year that push us closer to them. It is an interesting subject not only for the fan base, that was established years ago and keeps growing but also for people who do not know a thing about periods or types of dinosaurs. The movie characters connect somehow to humans, because of their behavior and thoughts that are largely seen in it.

Don’t miss the chance to watch the utmost movie about dinosaurs, because it will give you really cool knowledge of those amazing creatures, it will connect you with the prehistoric times and it will surely entertain you and your family.

Turbo from DreamWorks

Win at all costs! The company DreamWorks has not made an exception on making a life-affirming, bright, touching cartoon about a dream, which seems so unachievable and impossible, but comes to life because the one who dreamt this dream refused to give up and surrender. So, here is the new creation DreamWorks, a brilliant and beautiful cartoon Turbo.

The story of Turbo is the life story of a small yet astonishing snail, which looked pretty ordinary at the first glance, but kept an immense dream in his heart. His name is Theo, and Turbo is his nickname, a sonorous alias which was based on his reckless dream to become fast. It must sound ridiculous, and even more than this. A fast snail, a joke of nature, a fruit of some craze fantasy.  From our early childhood we know that snails are ones of the slowest creatures in the Earth. But Turbo could not care less about the prejudices he was surrounded by, because he dreamed of racing, he dreamed of becoming a winner and indeed, he managed to make his dream come true. Of course, a miracle took place, and even as the Turbo trailer demonstrates, Turbo nearly died under the wheels of a racing car to acquire some supernatural powers of unimaginable speed. Despite the difficulties, he overcame his fears and doubts, defeated every trouble with a little help from his loyal friends, he made it to the race and he owned the race.

If you want something ardently, if you give your heart and soul to that, if your dedication is as profound as you desire, your dream is destined to come true.

So Turbo is a cartoon not about races, snails, or something just as concrete. Turbo’s dream of being fast is a metaphor for every single dreamer out there, who has some doubts about his dream, who is afraid or not dedicated enough to achieve it. Turbo is a story of unimaginable success, unconditional friendship, pure faith, incredible dedication and, of course, the strength of character. It does not matter, how many times you fail, how many times you become a laughing stock, how many times it seems that you have lost it all. As long as you have faith in your powers, a few faithful friends, who are there for you whatever happens and a dream, which keeps you breathing, you have every chance to success. Turbo took a reckless shot. He was carrying inside of his snaily soul a dream so big it made him strong enough to make to the finish of the race. And his example teaches us to never give up, because our dream should give us strength to achieve the greatest things.

Release Date: September 28th, 2012
Studio: Sony Pictures
Director: Genndy Tartakovsky
Voice Cast: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Selena Gomez, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spad, CeeLo Green, Jon Lovitz, Chris Parnell, and Andy Samberg
Plot: Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world’s most famous monsters – Frankenstein and his wife, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more – to celebrate his daughter Mavis’ 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but his world could come crashing down when a human stumbles on the hotel for the first time and takes a shine to Mavis.

Thoughts: I absolutely love love love the classic monsters. Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Wolfman, etc, the list goes on. Growing up one of my favorite movies was The Monster Squad, which brought so many of these characters together in one movie. Sure, at the time I thought it was a horror movie and it took many years to realize that it was more of a family comedy than an actual horror movie. Nevertheless, even as an adult, the movie still works on all levels for me. I have high hopes for Hotel Transylvania and I hope that the animated flick can capture even just a little bit of the magic of The Monster Squad. The voice cast is a who’s who of modern comedy with Adam Sandler as Dracula and Kevin James as Frankenstien and enough ex-SNLers to fill a truck. The director, Genndy Tartakovsky, has a ton of TV animation work on shows such as Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpull Girls, Samurai Jack, and Star Wars: Clone Wars. I am familar with the shows, but have not watched enough of any of them to get an actual opinion on the guy. He works, and works a lot, so I’m sure that is a good sign.

This very well could be a hit or miss. It has talent behind it, but will it have enough heart? We’ll see on October 5th. Are you going to be checking into Hotel Transylvania?

THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN
I’m not really a fan of motion capture films — all of the ones I have seen have generally disappointed me — so when I heard that this film was going to be motion captured, I groaned. However, this movie blew me away. From the opening title credits right until the end, this film had me glued to my seat. It brought me back to when I use to watch the Tintin cartoon as a child and well, it was just good olde fashioned fun.

This film features the single best shot of Spielberg’s career and proves that Spielberg is a master of what he does. This should’ve gotten an Oscar nomination because it is just so much fun. The best motion capture film ever made. I’m looking forward to the sequel. A definite must see for all fans of Spielberg, Tintin, and/or animation fans. It’s just that good.
