Finally got to watch

It was a fun little flick- I can't say for sure if there was any moral or deeper meaning to it, but the storyline was original, the characters well developed, the movie well animated, and at times an emotional roll coaster.

These guys were great-

as was the whole wolf pack! Such things they could do :D I really enjoyed this one.

I also watched The Magnificent 7 (the new one)

It's worth a watch as great shoot-em-up Western- other than the lead guy wearing a black hat, there being seven gunmen, and a town to be taught to save itself, this movie has little in common with the Yul Brynner classic ;o)

My only jaded remark for both movies would be "Yeah, if only..."

Hey Moon, How are you? I've looked for you on FB, found a user with your name and a rabbit profile pic, is that you?

*hugs* Hello my friend! This is indeed serendipitous as two days ago I found this picture on a table at work-

and when I got onto the desk realized that it was just three weeks to V day :D

I am on Facebook off and on, though I rant about how much I dislike it. My profile pic is this bunny

Good to hear from you! I think you'll like the wolfies in Storks :o)

Edit- you landed on my standard account and I accepted the request :o) I have my furry accout under mondhasen if you'd rather.

Probably not Kurosawa's Seven Samurai either, then? Well, as long as the film was still enjoyable!

Google says these Magnificent Seven movies are adaptations of the original 1954 Kurosawa movie theme. It was quite enjoyable, particularly because it didn't follow the Yul Brynner story line closely.

Now they'll have to make new West World and Future World movies starring Denzel as the Cowboy in the Black Hat.

So glad you got to see Storks! A much more rated G film than Angry Birds, but both good in their own regards :D .. and yes, emotionally those last 5 or so minutes.... masterpiece........

Haven't gotten to see "7" ... I think it was the film that knocked Zootopia out of the Imax theaters though.. rarrrf....

I'll admit I found Junior a little, er, intriguing at points in the film (like, I could get lost in those wings), and I'm not generally drawn to the feathered side of furry... ;o) But no, this was a kid flick (other than how did parents handle the whole stork thing with their own children afterwards?).

I'll bet The Magnificent 7 was fantastic in Imax and on the Big Screen! On my 32" HD, in Blu-ray, it was stunning.

I can see myself enjoying Storks some Saturday night, along with some good cider, beer, and/or cocktails. ^_^ There were quite a few good flicks in 2016, most of which I've yet to see - though I did finally catch Miss Peregrine, which I definitely enjoyed. It felt like Tim Burton having fun again, less self-consciously than has been the case sometimes of late.

And I've got Arrival pre-ordered, so it'll plop onto the iPad on Tuesday. Yay! Definitely looking forward to that. (Moana, meanwhile, is due on Feb 21)

Storks was a nice surprise- many thanks to [ profile] c_eagle for recommending it to me!

And many thanks for your mention of Miss Peregrine :o) I forgot we had the HDX copy on Vudu (I got the digital code from a tossed off DVD insert at work) and watched it today!

You probably already knew, but this Yank did not and just had to look into it, that the Rabbit song in the movie was real enough and was a dig at the Lufwaffe's imprecise bombing runs.

Moana might take some prodding to watch (*hint hint* a review by you). Nothing in the trailers, particularly Maui's appearance, appealed to me... nothing new there!

Loved the wolves in Storks -- it's hard for me to say no to Key & Peele! (though I wasn't blown away by their film Keanu).

The things they had the wolves do were priceless, starting with the bridge and just getting better!

Thanks for the note on Key & Peele- I don't know of them (sheltered life) but as voice overs they were great :o)

K&P had a sketch comedy show on Comedy Central that was flat-out brilliant. They did a bit where they did President Obama and his anger translator Luther, absolutely brilliant. In fact, they once did it WITH President Obama, and did a final sketch of it with Stephen Colbert.

I would highly recommend looking for some of their stuff on YouTube.
