Angry Birds Review *Spoilers* Or, I Can't Believe Kids Saw This Movie

Emma:

First and foremost, this was not a kids movie. It was one of those cartoons meant for 13 and up so you had to wait for Toonami. A lot of low key jokes that weren't as low-key as they may have been intended. That being said:

This movie was fucking weird.

I mean we knew it would be, being based off an app, but it was weird. Not necessarily bad weird. I don't regret spending my money to see it. It's just my mind's realing at the whole premise and ideals that came from this piece of story telling. I liked Terrence and the queer couples they had on their. I liked that the yellow bird was gay. I liked a lot about it, I'm glad I've seen it once, but I've had my fill.

So thanks? Better then I expected and not the worst ever? Definitely better then Blade II, I'm sure.

(You can tell how fucking excited we are for this bullshit sequel)

 

John:

So, Angry Birds. The Movie. I've played the app, for sure, but I really didn't know that there would be enough there for a movie. Boy was I wrong. First off, wow, kids saw this movie. I mean, I know most of it went over their heads, but, man, I still feel a little weird about it...

That said, I was really happy to see the various queer couples and LGBTQ characters. There was no effort to shine a spotlight on them, but at the same time, they were not hidden in any way, shape or form. Just like real life. I'm glad to have seen the movie, but I don't think I need to see it again like some movies.

Absolutely loved Terrence, obviously, and was happy with the way the main characters interacted with each other. Especially them becoming roommates at the end. Overall, a good movie. Far better than Blade II will be tomorrow night. Seriously, fuck that movie.
