Mr. Peabody and Sherman
It’s a punny and fun cartoon that will entertain parents as well as kids, but some references will make more sense if you’ve seen the original show. The time-traveling duo will give you a free (and semi-accurate) history lesson, but will embrace every cultural stereotype available. Falling in the wake of The Lego Movie, I didn’t like it as much, but as far as animated films go, it was pretty humorous with a decent story to it.
My rating: 25/34
Reminded me of: The original Mr. Peabody and Sherman cartoons, The Croods, Meet the Robinsons
Besides Mr. Peabody and Sherman, I haven’t been impressed with the selection of new movies out in theatres. However, if you haven’t seen Non-Stop or The Lego Movie, I definitely recommend those!
March will still be a busy month with the release of:
Divergent: The newest book-to-movie adaptation that’s being described as the next Hunger Games. Set in a futuristic sci-fi world, it’s guaranteed to have teenagers, hormones and special effects.
Muppets Most Wanted: This will be the star-studded musical comedy for those who are looking for a nostalgic dose of the classic Kermit and Miss Piggy.
Noah: With so many award winners in the cast, this movie adaptation should be as epic as the story on which it’s based. It’ll be an awesome “big screen” movie, and I’m happy they have only released it in a 2D version, since 3D can be really overdone in live action films.
Enemy: This movie doesn’t look like it’s been released in Kelowna yet, but since it’s from the makers of Prisoners, I’m looking forward to watching Jake Gyllenhaal lose his sanity again.
See you at the movies!
