Angry Birds (2016)

Angry Birds
synopsis

In this hilarious animated adventure comedy, you’ll finally find out why the birds are so angry. In an island paradise populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely, Red, a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck, and the volatile Bomb have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.

review

Without a car, no job and tired of repeat television, I have turned to Netflix for my entertainment now. I admit I was surprised to find full-length movies on the website, but pleasantly pleased. This will allow me to crochet/knit faster as I watch.

This movie was entertaining despite having never played the game. At least I now know what made the birds angry! Damn medication had me dozing at the beginning, but not so much that I could not follow the story.

Cute characters, especially Red (Jason Sudeikis), Chuck (Josh Gad), Bomb (Danny McBride) and Terrence (Sean Penn). Wouldn’t you know the antagonist would be named Leonard (Bill Hader). Other notable voice talents included Maya Rudolph (Matilda), Peter Dinklage (Mighty Eagle) and Keegan-Michael Key (Judge Peckinpah).

review

I would classify this as a “pot” movie because the humor in this movie is very adult and juvenile. The story is pretty lame. Watched the whole movie, but was losing interest by the end!

REVIEW

I never had to contend with a big move like that as a child. I guess that may be as good an explanation why I didn’t get this movie as well as others might have. I know there is/was some kind of connection between joy and sadness, but I couldn’t bridge the gap to understanding. As I feel the movie plot centers on this point, my interest waned.

Over my head!
