Madagacar : Escape 2 Africa – First Look

December 5, 2008

Today after I went to look at apartments with friends, we went to see Madagascar : Escape 2 Africa. I haven’t actually seen the first one. And wasn’t really too fussed about this one either. But the adverts were at least funny.

The film doesn’t disappoint either. I thought it might frankly… but I was pleasantly suprised. Ben Stiller seems to be playing similar kinda characters lately… in Tropic Thunder he played a similar kinda character me thinks… Chris Rock rocked as always. David Schwimmer was good too. And Jada Pinkett Smith(who I couldn’t for the life of me remember the name of while in the movie lol) was great as Gloria lol. One of my favourite appearences was from Alec Baldwin!! He was the voice of the bad guy(essentially lol). Baldwins are just funny. Cause I can never remember how many there are…. but Alec is an awesome one. The lion he played even looked a bit like him lol.

I also found the multiplied Chris Rock voices very funny. He played ALL the zebra’s lol. I did wonder about the female zebras but let it go… since its a kids movie. The plane at the end…. that was completely unbelievable….but its not meant to be believable-believable lol. Moto-moto was a funny character too, his intro was very funny lol. You’ll see if you see it.

Another thing I did like alot about the movie was the soundtrack. A movie with a good soundtrack is always good to find. And one with songs so emotional that they’ll make me well up less than 10 minutes into the movie… thats a skill… Just two instances in this movie did that though. It is a comedy after all. I think I have got worse as the years go by… music never used to effect me like this…. I blame Clannad….

I really like this track, there are two versions of it, one shorter used almost right at the end of the movie, and one a little further back, but still near the end. Will I Am is responsible for alot of the soundtrack, I looked it up… then proceeded to dl my favourite tracks… to sate my hunger for those particular songs…

Anyways, tis a rather good movie. The high class chess playing monkeys were awesome. I won’t say anything about the actual story itself, you have to see the movie for that :grin:. If you have free time, and easy access to a cinema, I suggest you get your butt over there to see it. It’s the official day of release here in the UK. 4:30pm showing I saw, not too many people in the cinema. I’m guessing most kids will see it at the weekend, it was just people my age and some a bit younger who probably got out of school not soon before.

New Movies – what to see

July 19, 2008

I’ll probly be going to the cinema tomorrow night instead. But I might not be able to go see Stephen Kings ‘The Mist’ which sucks, but I will probly see it sometime this week hopefully. The reason I might not be able to see ‘The Mist’ is that my little brother(age 11) isn’t allowed to be left at home on his own yet, and my other brother(17) isn’t at home right now, he’s at a friends. So I may have to go and see Wall E with him tomorrow.

I have to admite he is quite cute, wouldn't mind a toy of him or something lol

 I wanna see Wall E aswell, but that’ll be on for weeks more, and ‘The Mist’ isn’t exactly a massive hit, so it’ll have a fairly limited run, tis a shame, but true.(AND its only playing at one cinema in Norwich so far, the Odeon on Riverside. Damn Vue(the one we normally go to) arn’t showing it.) So it might be Wall E tomorrow, and after seeing a T4 special today(during my break at work lol, what timing!!) I’m looking forward to seeing it more than I was. My parents and grandma will be seeing Mamma Mia, which I’ve refused to go and see, even though a bit of Colin Firth every now and then ain’t such a bad thing. Shame he’s same age as my dad now lol.
