DC, Do You Feel Excited!?! For this weekend at Verizon Center, you will be amazed and thrilled as the world of DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon comes to life right before your eyes! If you want to take your family on a night out, then look no further for this show takes you on a journey you’ll talk about all summer long.
Finally! We have a movie in 2012 that is worth every minute and every penny. If your kids (or you, for that matter) cannot stop singing “Circus! Afro!” then go ahead and see Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted in 3D. It is the most clever, fun, and exciting animated film to hit theaters in a long time.
Have you ever had a song or jingle stuck in your head for a long time? That’s what happened to me when I first heard the now infamous Afro Circus line on television. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted delivers the fun and excitement for the whole family this weekend! The third chapter in the Madagascar takes the Central Zoo Fab Four on a new journey they will never forget.
I told myself I wouldn’t. I promised that I would rise above the hype and not pay attention to those shiny saucer eyes or the hilarious paw-over-mouth surprise as a kitten says, “Ohhhh…” But it was number one in the box office for two weekends in a row, and I love cats and kiddie movies. So I caved anyway and saw Puss in Boots, the latest animated “kids” movie from DreamWorks Animation (DWA). Now not only do I think I’m a liar, but I’m convinced that I should never get a cat or see any other animated films in 2011.
To save you a couple of dollars at the cinema this weekend, we’ll just cut to the chase and say that Kung Fu Panda 2 was not as funny as the first one.
Now the first Kung Fu Panda was not necessarily a masterpiece, but it did have it merits. It was smart, snarky and a definite improvement over previous Dreamworks films (I’m looking at you Bee Movie). Kung Fu Panda 2 seeks to duplicate the success of the first movie by upping the production value and going for an even more complex plot, but sadly falls short.
