Any interest in the Angry Birds movie?

It's coming just 11 days from now. I'll probably end up seeing it with my niece. It doesn't look bad for a kids animated movie. If you like and want to see Rivio sustain, a lot is riding on what was a very expensive movie.

I am going to watch with the wife. Weve decided not to bring the 2-yr young one coz of how angsty the characters are based on the trailers, and how the movie may be filled with cartoon violence.

We thought it was ok to bring him, but just decided not to. I grew up watching Tom N Jerry and I think i turned out fine. LOL

If I had kids... Eh... Maybe probably not but maybe. As is, lol no. Also, I do wonder what will happen if the movie flops. Angry birds is trying to stay relevant but it's moment has passed. If they don't find a new cow soon, the cow will stop producing any milk, of which there's already very little, and they almost certainly will die (I mean as much as I hate King, at least they had various other games and themes, rather then angry birds RPG, angry birds racing, angry birds this or that)

This movie seems about 5 years too late. I just don't think its going to make the kind of money it could have, if it was released a few years earlier. The people I know that used to be addicted to the games have moved on to other games/interests. My grandson will probably like it though.

I thought the commercial was quite funny for what it is.

I hate reviewers who try to judge the story and characters... I mean it's about Angry Birds..

Anyways loved the part of commercial where the birds are diving into their watering hole only to find the Eagle having been taking huge pisses in it. The birds reactions were priceless and very funny to me. And how red bird feels indifferent because he has bigger eye brows then most birds, Hahahaha

Some funny stuff , my wife wants to see it and I don't mind taking her. You can't take a movie like this too seriously even tho all the critics seem too. I remember reading a review and they mentioned how they were turned off because majority of voice actors were guys. I mean... CMON.

Nothing is ever too late, when your dead then it is too late.

Wow!

2009 called.

It wants its ideas back.

On another note, I trust it'll be free to get into the cinema, but an actual seat will be a $80 in-cinema, entirely optional purchase?
