What if something you think doesn’t exist, thinks you don’t exist?
We we’re invited to the advanced screening of Smallfoot this weekend . Yes it is an animated adventure movie for all ages. MTRCB rated this movie G and will be in Philippine cinemas starting September 27,2018.
So, why should you watch it with the young ones in your life? Let us tell you in this brief review from an adult male and female perspective.
What Marcus Thinks of it? His POV
The best children’s movies provide a layer of entertainment for adults, because they’re going to be the ones to allow the movie to be played over and over once it makes it to the house. I’m an adult, legally, and I enjoyed this movie. The comedy was clever and made me laugh. There were also some deep messages about tolerance and honesty and all that kind of stuff you would expect from a kid’s movie. What the movie lacked was memorable songs. I don’t think kids will be dressing up and singing bigfoot songs for the next few years. Nothing too catchy. It’s been a day since watching and I cannot remember a single song. It’s not a bad movie, but it’s not the next blockbuster cartoon either. Maybe wait until this movie gets released at home before watching. I score this one “Let it go”. (you know…from Frozen.. the song your kids have been singing for 18 months straight?)
What Earth Thinks of It? Her POV
As an adult I enjoyed the sarcastic humor in the movie. As a social media personality I pretty much was able to relate with some of the dilemma presented in the film. The kid inside me thinks the movie is so pretty and colorful and fun but I would be asking my parents a lot about it probably after the movie or maybe while the movie is on-going. Spoiler Alert: Here is Tito Earl’s review explaining some deep stuff about the movie.
The story plot presented a lot of life lessons I think kids of this generation could understand but needs more guidance and explanation from the adult. The ending was an ideal ending for a fairytale fantasy setting. Very idealistic.
It is a fun movie especially the misadventures. Very animated , hilarious and cartoonist!
