Hey hey hey! We’re back with another episode of The (title pending) Movie Podcast with Tank and Fogs!
In this week’s episode we review the two big new releases out this week – “Project X”, the found footage teen party movie, and “The Lorax”, the animated offering with the environmentalist bent. Both did surprisingly well at the Box Office, but how did our hosts feel about them?
Then in our feature discussion - in keeping with the spirit of “The Lorax” – Tank and I discuss our top five animated movies of all time. Which are our favorites? Will it be a Pixar fest?
Dr Seuss’ “The Lorax” is a charming and unique animated movie. Patterned after the inimitable stylings of Dr Seuss, the visual world of the Lorax is beautiful to behold. Colorful, charming, idiosyncratic… it has a fresh and appealing creative vision to offer audiences.
The story within may be a little slow for today’s children, but it’s got charisma and humor to spare. At times it comes dangerously close to being preachy with its environmentalist, anti-capitalist messages… but overall it’s an entertaining family film that feels original and unique amongst the annual onslaught of animated offerings.
Hello and welcome to another episode of The (title pending) Movie Podcast!
In this episode, the Tanker and I go over the Oscars. The winners, the losers, the show… We review how our predictions stacked up, share our thoughts on Billy Crystal a bit, and Tank calls me a prude for not approving of the Bridesmaids job as presenters.
We also go over the weekly Box Office results in our Box Office roundup. There, I share my thoughts on Amanda Seyfried’s “Gone”, and “Act of Valor”.
For our featured review this week, we have the Paul Rudd Jennifer Aniston comedy “Wanderlust”, the story of two New Yorkers who find their way to living in a hippie commune! Will we see eye to eye?
A big thanks to everyone who gave our Facebook page a like this week, and I appreciate everyone who’s moved their comments and feedback there! You all rule!
January and February are behind us now… this weekend marks the start of the 2012 Spring Movie Season!
While it doesn’t quite have the huge blockbusters of the Summer or Holiday seasons, March has turned into quite a nice month on the Hollywood release calendar. There’s plenty of big budget flicks and star vehicles to look forward to, and it all kicks off this weekend with “The Lorax”!
