This is an exciting post because again, if you haven’t guessed it yet, I’m a sucker for cartoon movies. I have an extensive collection of them. Well today I will be talking about two movies I just watched this past week. Madagascar and Brave.

I must say this, usually I’m not happy with the last movie in a trilogy but I accept it because it completes a set. Yes very simple I know but it’s how I roll (line from Despicable Me). Anyway, I was happily surprised with Madagascar 3, Chris Rock and the Polka Dot  Afro Song is hilarious.  All your favorite characters are back with the introduction of some new ones.  I will say this, see it in 3D, it’s fantastic.

King Julian, Maurce & Mort

Brave – by Pixar, hmmm it was cute, not what I expected I guess.  But enjoyed it anyway. I felt like I never really connected with the lead character Merida voiced by Kelly Macdonald who if you didn’t know played in Harry Potter’s last movie as Helena Ravenclaw, she just seemed like a spoiled brat.  But like many other stories, Merida is misunderstood by her parents and she wants to do things her way!  There is a very important message there, though and that’s KEEP THE FAMILY BONDS STRONG! Some thing that is desperately needed in the world today! Billy Connolly also lends his voice talent to Fergus (I wonder if he’s any relations to the Connolly’s we love from Film Riot…I have tweet him about that) and Emma Thompson as Elinor, Julie Walters as the witch and we know her as Molly Weasley. Also Robbie Coltrane who we loved as Rubeus Hagrid who voices Lord Dingwall.  This is almost a Harry Potter Reunion…ok…maybe not 😦


What else can I say about it, it’s PIXAR, expect great looking graphics and EFX as usual, lovable and funny characters, that everyone can relate to or can say “hey my uncle is like that” – well at least some of us…lol

Two great movies to go and see if you haven’t already!

Until next time…
