Well, well, this movie may have just went to a legit PG-13 (not the modern fake one, the hardcore one we had back in the day for good old fashioned bloody violence). Amazon Alpha and Omega from Kamen Rider Amazons are going to meet their fellow Riders!
The movie SING was a lot deeper than I thought it would be… Like damn.
In the trailers it points out that Moon is broke/running low on funds. Johnny has family issues? (I don’t know how to word it right) etc.
Then watching it, um, shit got real in some parts. Literally Moon’s whole life collapses around him, and he pretty much gives up on everything. His friends/the singing competition contestants even come to see if he is alright. Johnny’s whole family (?) get arrested and his dad refuses to see him after the first time Johnny goes to see him (the one in the trailer). Rosita’s family also seem almost completely incapable of functioning without her…
And instead of just breezing past that it keeps up the anxious/somewhat sad undertones for the characters for the remainder of the movie.
All in all it is a pretty great movie, some parts still seemed a little too… Yay, everything worked out! For instance at the end of the movie, when the shy girl starts singing. She is suddenly wildly confident, and starts dancing and whatnot around the stage, but she literally never practiced at all for any of it. Or the reunion with Johnny and his dad just seemed too “it’s gonna be alright in the end”…
That’s pretty typical finishing up a movie stuff though, it really wasn’t unexpected or unwelcomed.
I did thoroughly enjoy it. If you haven’t seen it don’t just shit on it, I thought it looked pretty dumb, and I was happily surprised!
I recommend would recommend SING as a movie to watch with anyone of any age. It has a good message and good characters and decent character development.
A few days ago we had a #tokumeisentaigobusters class reunion. We weren’t quite able to sweep everyone together, but even managing to connect as well as we did made me feel our deep bond. As Go-busters approaches the #fiveyear mark, today, tomorrow, and the days after… Up until now, and going forward, this work is something that I’m proud of.
