“Since our first feature movie, Toy Story, we hide a lot of easter eggs in our productions”, says director and producer Lee Unkrich.

An article written by the journalist Jon Negroni, with a theory created by him saying that all movies produced by Pixa are, actually, only one movie. Taking advantage of the interpretation, the animation studio decided to release a video that reinforces the “conspiracy”. The material shows a compilation of scenes from Toy Story, Up, Monsters Inc., Cars and Ratatouille, with connections between the movies that may have gone unnoticed by many viewers.

Kung Fu Panda 2 Movie Review

There are people who twist the nose to the proceedings. Others charge a new formula was already known. If you do not care for it and no prejudice against a bear beast in martial arts, find a temple, I mean, the nearest movie theater and enjoy yourself.

This time, Po (Jack Black / Lucio Mauro Filho), his friends Tigress, Crane, Monkey, Viper, Mantis (The Furious Five) and Master Shi Fu, are facing a new danger. Banished from their kingdom by their own parents, the Peacock Lord Shen promises to conquer China and finish off with Kung Fu, using a powerful weapon.

With this family conflict, the script runs a bit more content in the plot and even closer hero and villain, putting Po facing a new reality about their origins, since the first movie (amazingly enough), he appears as the son of a duck. But this bit of “depth” to there, because the story itself remains simple, focused more on the little people than in Altinho and running for bot. bulk polyethylene

The action scenes are great and from start to finish, dictating the pace of the adventure anchored in the martial art. Choreography high visual impact and a rickshaw chase are just some spices as well as the fun dialogue punchy endangered (merit of the actors / voice actors). Continued use of the unfailing expressions effect, typical of heroes such as “stealth mode!” Jokes with their flaws or imperfections naively, giving even more sympathetic to the character, which is actually only one child.

Although the use of 3-D is dispensable, with the same good track before, Hans Zimmer (The Lion King) and John Powell (Shrek), following the success of the 2008 continues mixing animation techniques and obtained a beautiful result. Kung Fu Panda 2 is silly, but it’s fun. So take a kickback in a bad mood and face this fun black belt.

*DreamWorks planning is for six films in total.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole (2010)

The popular novels by Kathryn Lasky films come to life in a brilliant way through Zack Snyder (Watchmen). As pretty intelligent, “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” surely captivate anyone interested in complex stories told simply.

Soren (voice of Jim Sturgess) and his older brother Kludde (Ryan Kwanten) were kidnapped and their captors forced them to join an order of elected officials who are willing to fight the guardians Ga’Hoole. Kludde joined the movement, but not Soren taking to their heels in the company of Gylfi (Emily Barclay). Seeing that a war is being prepared, the two new friends can not remain neutral, and in company with some companions they will act to avoid the fate of humanity falls into the wrong wings.

From 2002 to 2008, the American author Kathryn Lasky has published no fewer than 15 books about the legendary exploits of the “Guardians of Ga’Hoole,” winning more than considerable success. When people are waiting for you, Hollywood is never far to suggest a film version. The project to adapt the first three stories were told Zack Snyder, who has managed the feat to translate brilliantly unadaptable comic “Watchmen”. perspex

His first challenge was to get rid of what has been done before. It does not take long to see that feature drink at “Dark Crystal”, “Labyrinth”, “X-Men” and especially “Star Wars” original drawing heavily on a few notable passages. While it is increasingly difficult to lay a completely original screenplay, the director is doing a nice way of mixing old with new to create a new mythology for the whole family, but probably a little too dark and violent for young souls. Even if conflicts, characters and alliances are numerous, it is easy to navigate easily.

The story could have been very wordy and it is in places. This is quite normal at the information needed to convey, some passages more “educational” can make a viewer more cynical sigh. For once, the votes selected (the Jim Sturgess, Helen Mirren, Geoffrey Rush, Hugo Weaving and Anthony LaPaglia others) serve the story and not the other, which may explain the depth given to characters who are often torn dilemmas moral.

Yet the pace is never sacrificed for the benefit of conversations, and when the action breaks, it is hard not be impressed. The beauty of the choreography and plans offered dare propose something new instead of always reheat the soup. The set pieces are numerous, and several easily capture the retina, especially when the hero faces vortex of rain. Especially since the three-dimensional technology is intended spectacular, bringing a degree of tension to the vicissitudes. Although enjoyable, the music is still sometimes a little too sluggish, especially when a cutesy song is heard. As if the young customer he needed this to stay hooked until the end.

Breathtaking in its scope and execution, “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” is one of the best events of the year. It’s beautiful, good, upbeat and very entertaining. Hoping a sequel arrives on screens as soon as possible.

“Toy Story 3” Movie Review

Needless to say much. An original and two sequels that manage to rise with the same force to infinity and beyond. A lesson for other sagas of animation, particularly those that are staged by green freaks and beasts of burden speakers. Because the creators of Toy Story did not play in service. (I apologize for the previous cute. I am very sorry and promise not reoccur.) 3D is once again and unfortunately, dispensable.
