Over the Hedge (2006)
Best Animation Movie Of The Year!!
What more could you ask for? -Warning: This is a Summary. SPOILERS START HERE! Avert your eyes unless you plan to endure Harsh, Agonizing TRUTH!!-
The story starts out simple enough. A hungry Raccoon named RJ tries to steal a Hibernating bear's stolen food, and in the process, accidentally leads to its destruction. So he's given an Ultinatum: Gather more food for the bear within a week, or die. So searching for food begins as he stumbles across a Family of woodland creatures, who while planning to search for food, find an enormous hedge separating them from a new neighborhood.
RJ then Takes this opportunity to his advantage and exploits the work of his newfound "friends" in order to save his own self. Then While they think they've got it good, the turtle named Verne attempts to return things to normal by giving back the food. Leading to a problem where they now need to recollect food, when they've only got one night left. But the problem is solved once they figure out that a neighboring human is hosting a party, which means: food, Food, FOOD!!! Now begins the Heist. Simply, yet more than effective, but with one small problem: the entire back-yard they have to cross is Filled with DEADLY TRAPS!!! Despite the odds, the animals make it inside, and begin the extraction part of their wild and crazy plan. The Plot thickens as the owner of the house awakens and the Exterminator arrives to wheel off the critters. RJ, then reveals his Horrid plan to the rest, and leaves with his spoils unscathed.
Just when all seems to fail, RJ Unveils his plan to help them escape and in the process, kills the food, which angers the bear, thus causing it to follow in a deadly car chase. The Deadly car ride ends at the house of the Crazy lady, and to help make things worse, the bear survives. The Battle of the Hedge begins, as the critters are sandwiched between Crazy bear Vincent, and Crazier lady and Exterminator. All seems lost when the Hyperactive Squirrel Hammy, receives more than enough caffeine to stop the world spinning. Literally. And thus starts RJ's devious plan. So in sum, the bear gets sent away, the crazy lady gets incarcerated, and the Exterminator finds that what dogs only want to do is play.
All in all I Give it two Thumbs up, ***** stars, a 10 rank, and a promise to see it again.
Why is it...
That all g-rated movies are Musicals nowadays? Thats it, every one: same style colored G rated musicals, with obvious plots, Dumb supporting characters, even worse returning characters, Straight-to-Video, and having been spring boarded of sure fire classics, and been toned WAY down, so babysitters 'Too busy on the phone' can occupy a three-year-old for the rest of their night, JUST BECAUSE. If Making Movies like this means occupying toddlers for the night, then i Never want to Hire a Babysitter, EVER!!! Horribly Clichéd. Terrible coloring. Worse Characters. Awful Songs. UGH!!!
I was reading on Wikipedia that if Don Bluth even decided to make a sequel, he would have considered TIMMY AS THE VILLAIN and MARTIN AS THE MAIN CHARACTER, just to steer clear of the monotony of movies today. He wanted to make things different, and money hungry plagiarizers ruined his Legacy. WAY TO GO!!
The Secret of NIMH (1982)
No words describe it
I was seven when i first caught the last few min. on TV. It immediately caught my eye, and my interest. I looked for it for nearly a year before i found it on tape, and since then...we were inseparable. I loved everything about this movie, from its dark theme, Beautiful animation, and Musical Scores, to its Characters, situations, and... well, the FEELING it gives you after you watch it all the way through. Almost right after i watched it once, i rewound it, and stuck it in the VCR again. I just didn't want that feeling to go away. Now that i have it on DVD, i wont have to. But all in all, i was always disappointed that it ended all those times. I was...well, "excited" that a sequel came out, cause i thought it would continue where it left off. boy was i WRONG ABOUT THAT.(he said flatly) i hope whoever made THAT movie dies, and rots in H***. You heard it from me, and no one else.(that last part anyway)
