Animation Rules In June

June 25th, 2012 at 12:26 pm by under The Movie Guru, Uncategorized

This past May of 2012 it was all about The Avengers.  June 2012 would have to go to the ink, the charcoal, the paints, and the CGI that makes up the celluloid imagery that is Movie Animation.  At the begining of the month was saw Dreamworks’ Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted beat out Prometheus and Rock of Ages for the top spot at the Box Office.  Now in comes Disney Pixar Brave - and it has set records being the 13th “Number 1″ opening in a row for the animation powerhouse.  This past weekend Brave & Madagascar 3 took the Number 1 & 2 spots for box office “Big Bucks” – No Whammys here when it comes to delivering a good time at the movies.

Now you ask why are these types of movies always do well – The Answer – KIDS!  It’s Summertime and the kids are out of school on summer vacation.  You have to do something with them … and it’s HOT out there.  A cool movie theater is a great place to be together out of the heat if you can’t get to a pool or the beach.  For us here on the Gulf Coast with T.S. Debby just sitting there adding rough surf making it really not safe to swim right now the movies is a good alternative to entertaining the whole family unit.  One more factor is that Disney Pixar & Dreamworks and other film animators and companies are making films that appeal to the kid at heart that’s in the adults who take their kids to the movies – i.e. all the jokes that characters say in the film that we adults would get but our kids may not fully understand.  They see us laughing so they think it’s funny too and laugh with Mom and Dad.  That’s why comedians do so well voicing these characters.  Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, Cedric The Entertainer, just to name a few recent ones on the Big Screen – Animated.

Another major reason they do so well, especially during the Summer Movie Blockbuster Season, is that most R-rated and some PG13-rated films that get released at the same time DON’T appeal to the “kid demographic” which would generate more ticket sales than if you went to those types of movies by yourself if you are 13 years of age and older.  Prime Example …. Myself.  The Movie Guru.  I went to see Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – based upon the popular novel – and it wasn’t half bad.  But when I went the audience was mostly teenagers and college student there with me because it was a R-rated movie.  Now this week my niece and I are going to see Madagascar 3 and Disney Pixar Brave.  Two Movies – Two Tickets each – in an audience with other parents and their kids …… More Money Spent (and if you see them in 3D ….. WOW!).   And we haven’t even bought the popcorn, nachos, and sodas yet.

June 2012 is almost in the books and the June 29th Movie Showdown will be Magic Mike vs. Ted.  Two more movies that might not be for the “kid demographic”  but are getting big buzz from critics and test audiences and other blogs besides mine.  I’ll give my previews on those film in my next entry.  For now – if Disney Pixar Brave and Madagascar 3 beats out these two new entries this coming weekend – you now know why.

But Get Ready – JULY 2012 is ONLY ONE WEEK AWAY!  Two Superheroes Will Be Battling For Your Box Office Bucks and Vying For The Movie Of The Year Top Spot – Currently Owned By Marvel’s The Avengers. 

Will The Amazing Spider-Man or The Dark Knight Rises Claim This Title?  Get Your Web-Shooters and Batarangs Ready For “The Movie Showdown Of The Year“.   Are You “Team Parker” or “Team Wayne”?

    I enjoyed everything about this movie. If you like fantasy & horror than this is for you! If you like realistic stories and picking movies apart, than perhaps not. It is an “escape from reality” vampire film with fantastic directing, acting, and story line.
