Angry Birds (2016)
Powerful allegorical movie to todays European crisis
It is a very intelligent movie done in the same spirit as Orwell's animal farm animation.
"Red" the protagonist is a masculine hot tempered young adult with a past of being ostracized by the community for his love of old outdated ideals and a tendency for anger though not violence. When the community is met by an outside threat their civilization of "happy birds" who are feminized and do not possess the primitive threat recognition capability of Red embrace the outsiders with friendship. It is up to Red to find out what the outsiders of the tribe are really up too.
There is much symbolism in this movie, specifically the burning down of the welcome center which is a clear reference to what happened at a Greece welcome center. The looting and rampant destruction of neighborhoods to the oblivious apathetic response of the citizenry. A reference to ISIS (Islamic State) when Red clearly asks that there no way to identify all the immigrants. Pigs welcome signs and parties celebrating diversity.
The Eggs I think is a reference to "wealth" or "capital" as Eggs are often used in symbology to gold. The outsiders are after the eggs to take it for themselves, in reality it is the outsider elite and his council that takes all of it while his throng of people as low intelligence followers incapable of ruling themselves as free people. A criticism of third world dictatorships and Imams.
Pure Epic Awesomeness
From a pure movie critic or general mass audience perspective this movie is not worth registering. This is not a James Cameron movie with millions of dollars in budget, but this movie has Avatar beaten by far.
But if you are into science fiction, horrors and fantasy then this movie is great.
It follows a team of space marines on their journey to respond to a distress signal. The movie features good plot twists, excellent thriller/horror atmosphere and very good CGI. The combat is awesome and the brutality is hilarious as only WH40K can be.
The only downside is the poor sound quality used for the effects.
