The Angry Birds Movie 2

Although I did see/review the first installment, “The Angry Birds Movie 2” was not on my original “Watch List”, but after seeing a couple of deep trailers I decided to check it out.

The Flight-less Birds and Pudgy Pigs are back and they are taking their feud to a new level.
The Birds are unaware that a long time ago one of their own had a romance and left the bride behind. In present time the jilted Eagle who was left at the Alter, is planning and executing her revenge. Everyone is fair game. The story unfolds from there…

This installment is hilarious!! There is everything from “Speed Dating” to “Star-Crossed Lovers”.
Adults will get and understand the story, young children will not. While this is animated, it’s still plays for adults.
Next to “Toy Story 4” and “The Secret Life of Pets 2”, “The Angry Birds Movie 2” stands tall.

There is great cinematography and excellent special effects. There is a story, a plot and raw humor. What else do you need in an animated movie?

“The Angry Birds Movie 2” will offer comic relief and animation for those who need it.

This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!

Alien: Covenant

Ok, Ok, Ok…I had not planned to see “Alien: Covenant”, especially after seeing “Life” back in March and having nightmares to boot! But my curiosity got the best of me plus, I have seen the other three “Alien” installments. So here goes…

“Alien: Covenant” is an epic Sci-Fi/Action/Adventure that has parts of “Prometheus”, but also gets back to its original roots of “In-gestation” and “Incubation”.
Believe it or not this 4th installment is fresh! It does pick up some parts of “Prometheus” to remind you of what transpired there over the past few years.

What really makes “Alien: Covenant” work is the cast. This cast is way better than the “Life” cast and is on par with the 1979 hit “Alien” which starred Sigourney Weaver. Michael Fassbender reprises his role from “Prometheus”.

“Bloody, Edge-of-Your Seat Suspenseful and Intriguing” are how to best describe “Alien: Covenant”.
Michael Fassbender is such a “Butt”, but I mean that in a nice way. There always has to be an “Antagonist” in these types of movies and he is it!!

The door has been left open again! so I suspect we will see a 5th installment in a couple of years.

This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!

The Angry Birds Movie in 3D

Have you ever wondered why the “Angry Birds” are so angry? Well you can find out in “The Angry Birds Movie”.

“The Angry Birds” reside on their own paradise island out in the middle of nowhere. The Pigs from Pig Island decide to pay the Angry Birds a visit. All of the Angry Birds except “Red” (Jason Sudeikis) are willing to welcome the Pigs to their paradise. What they don’t know is that the Pigs plan to steal all of the Bird Eggs. The Bird Eggs are the soon-to-be off-spring of the Angry Birds. The Pigs plan to dine on eggs for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

After staging a HUGH party to get the Angry Birds away from their homes, the Pigs make off with all of the eggs. By the time the Angry Birds figure out what has happened, the pigs have all but left the paradise. “Red” rallies the Angry Birds to devise a plan to get their eggs back. The story unfolds from there…

“The Angry Birds” Movie is not an “Inside Out”, but it does have moments of entertainment and laughter. There are parts of the movie that are a bit disjointed and would be over a child’s head. Young children will not notice this, but adults should. This is another attempt at bringing a video game to the big screen. Overall it’s so-so. The 3D aspects are awesome. When I took off my glasses I could not see the movie.

A child will find “The Angry Birds” Movie enjoyable.

This is a 2 1/2 Star Movie!
