Monsters-vs-Aliens-Supersonic-Joyride-DVD-CoverIf you were lucky enough to see the original Monsters Vs. Aliens animated movie a few years ago, then you are in for a treat when you check out the TV series. Some things have changed since then. There are new aliens, Insectosaurus is no longer with the team, and Ginormica/Susan Murphy can control her size. Dr. Cockroach (Chris O’Dowd), Susan (Riki Lindhome), The Link(Deidrich Bader), and B.O.B.(Eric Edelstein) are still living over at Area 50-something under the command of General W. R. Monger( Kevin Michael Richardson).

Since the invasion of Gallaxhar, some new aliens have shown up. Some evil, some cute, and some just confused. There is the evil Coverton (Jeff Bennett), whom will take any suggestion and find a way to use it to manipulate someone into working through his next nefarious plan. The adorably cute, and extremely intelligent Sqweep (Haley Tju), whose inventions are amazing but still pretty much designed by a child. A tiny pink, Asuran-like alien child. Also there is Sta’abi(Gillian Jacobs), a female alien warrior whose race is so proud that they get offended by just about anything. Sta-abi also has a pet, Vornicarn (Fred Tatasciore), and this critter loves to eat and eat.

Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters (2013)

Percy-Jackson-Sea-of-Monsters-2013-DVD-CoverWhen Rick Riordan says everything old is new again, he really means it. He has taken ancient myth and legend and combined it with post-modern society and brought us the Percy Jackson series of books. This second film from the series is a wonderful take on the second book of the series. I do hope this film franchise keeps running! We are once again brought into the story by the dream team of Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman), a son of Posiden, Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario), and their satyr guide, Grover (Brandon T. Jackson). Annabeth relives her past in a short tale of woe for another child of the most powerful of the Greek Gods, Zeus. As children trying to reach the protective camp, Annabeth, Grover, Luke, and another girl, Talia, were being chased by two cyclops. In the pursuit, Talia tried to stop the cyclops to let the other kids get away, but was defeated. Talia was a child of Zeus, and everyone thought she was killed, but there was a very faint life force left in her, and Zeus used this to create a new life for Talia, as a tree protecting the camp, just as Talia did for her young friends. Also, because of this incident, Annabeth developed a hatred for cyclops.

Dr-Seuss-The-Lorax-2012-Movie-PosterIt’s been awhile since we reviewed a animated film, and this one seems right at home in Musings stash. It is a tale told to us from decades ago, but still holds true even today. Let’s take a look at what happened to the colourful town of Thneedville.
While this town seems happy and bright, it holds a dark secret. This story is how one boy, Ted (Zac Efron) learns that the girls of his dreams, the artistic Audrey (Taylor Swift) wants to see a real tree. All the trees in Thneedville are plastic, as is just about everything else. Thneedville is about the most fake town ever. Even the air needs to be bought, and it is supplied by O’Hare (Rob Riggle) Air.

Enchanted (2007) The real world and the animated world collide

This entry was posted in Comedy, Family, Fantasy, Music, Romance by Snowfoxx on

Enchanted-2007-PosterWe have seen some movies about characters from parallel worlds coming to our own before, but this the first one to use the classic animated fairytale world. Sure there was The Purple Rose of Cairo, back in the 80s which featured an adventurer from a 1930s movie serial, and a similar mini-series, The Tenth Kingdom, brought characters from a fairytale land to New York, as what has happened in Enchanted. Even Tin Man brought people over from Oz to collect the story’s main protagonist. Those two stories were far more serious and a bit more mature than this one. Hey, it’s a Disney family movie, and it brings the two classic Disney formulas together beautifully!

Sailor Moon Super S the Movie: Black Dream Hole

This entry was posted in Action, Animated, Comedy, Family, Fantasy, Romance by Will on

Sailor-Moon-Super-S-The-Movie-DVD-CoverThis Sailor Moon movie is kind of like Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory went haywire. I guest the children kidnappers just kicked him out of his factory. The children kidnappers want a to make a black hole to suck up planet Earth. So, I guess though they stole the Russian’s technology from the cold war, as well. The children kidnappers want to kidnap the children all the around the world so they can make their dream black hole. The leader of children kidnappers is Queen Badiane.

Queen Badiane wants to make children have a happier dreams instead letting the children have a good life. She wants to make the children go to sleep forever, so she can make her black hole. She is like Queen Beryl from the first season of Sailor Moon. She’s got that angry vampire look on her face and she is very tall. The four of her children kidnappers are Perle, Poupelin, Banane, and Orangeat. Perle is one of good guys. He didn’t want to kidnap the children. He will meet Rini later on in the movie. Rini will get kidnapped by Queen Badiance later on in the movie. He want the children to have good happy life. The other three, they take orders form Queen Badiane. Perle is always right about Sailor Moon and the others. He helps them to defeat Queen Badiane.
