Thoughts on Upcoming Animated Movies

Because I am the sole authority on this subject (not really)

The Lego Batman Movie: Can’t wait. The first Lego Movie was really good, and the previews for this one were amazing. Also, this is probably the closest thing to a How it Should Have Ended movie we’ll ever get.

Boss Baby: I want this movie to fail so bad. Dear god, its screams gimmick.

Despicable Me 3: Preview was interesting, and I do like the first movie. I never saw the second one though, and dear god I hate the minions. All in all, Illumination is proving to be a pretty decent animation studio, despite it having the world’s most annoying advertising department.

Cars 3: Good or bad, this movie is going to be interesting.

Smurfs: The Lost Village: On one hand, I’m glad that Smurfs fans are actually getting a movie somewhat true to the source material. On the other hand, I never really cared much for the Smurfs in the first place.

Captain Underpants: DREAMWORKS DO NOT SCREW THIS UP! This movie will either be this year’s Peanuts movie or else something really bad. I’m hoping for the former.

The Emoji Movie: Kill it. 

Coco: Mixed feelings. It’s kind of interesting that Pixar of all companies is taking on another culture, when usually that’s something I’d expect out of their sister company Disney Animation. On the other hand, it is kind of suspect that this movie is coming out after the success of The Book of Life, especially considering the fact that that movie was pitched to Disney first. Also, Disney tried to tradmark Dia De Los Meurtos. That… isn’t a good thing.

The Ninjago Movie: This is a thing? Two Lego Movies in one year? I was never a fan of the cartoon, but hey, this could be good.

The Croods 2: I’m in the minority here, but I never really cared for the first one. Same thing goes for this.

My Little Pony The Movie: Its listed on the google search I’m using. I don’t care either way. I watched the show maybe once ever. It’s a fine show, and I’d definately prefer my siblings watch that over, say, Dora the Explorer, but nothing stops the fact that this show was not meant for people my age. If you like it, then thats fine, but its not my thing,

Blazing Samurai: Not particularly interested. Might be good, but my expectations are low.

Animal Crackers: From what I’ve heard, this is actually much better than you’d expect. Apparently its already been released elsewhere, but I never really looked too much into this one.

The Nut Job 2: Nobody wants this.


While we’re talking abt Shirley Temple, who else remembers Zoobooks?
After more than a century, Barnum's lets its animal crackers roam free with a box redesign
By Lindsey Ellefson, CNN

After more than a century, the iconic Barnum’s Animal Crackers box has gotten a redesign.

Instead of animals caged in a boxcar on their way to a circus, the animals are now roaming free – side-by-side in a grassland.Barnum’s Animal Crackers brand has been around for more than 115 years. The change is a result of evolution, says the company that makes the snack.

“Throughout our history, we have leveraged and evolved our classic design to drive awareness around key animal and environmental issues,” Kimberly Fontes, spokeswoman for Nabisco’s parent company Mondelēz International, told CNN.

“To continue to make the brand relevant for years to come, we felt this was the right time for the next evolution in our design, now showing the animals in a natural habitat.”

Bart: Where do animal crackers come from?

Jaime: Bart, it’s 3 am.

Bart: Wouldn’t it be crazy if when animals died, they turned into animal crackers?

Jaime: We have school tomorrow, cariño-

Bart: This is important nova, doesn’t it make so much more sense that animal crackers come from the deceased creatures of the animal kingdom instead of a factory?


Jaime: … Do you mean “novio”?
