The Boss Baby Passes

DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby.  He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby.  The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim.  With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.

Trolls Passes

In theatres November 4, 2016, Movie Scene Queen has your opportunity to see Trolls!

image0012

From the creators of Shrek comes DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls, a smart, funny, and irreverent comedy about the search for happiness, and just how far some will go to get it. This hilarious film transports audiences to a colorful, wondrous world populated by the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant dance in their step and a song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomachs.  

After the Bergens invade Troll Village, Poppy (Kendrick), the happiest Troll ever born, and the overly-cautious curmudgeonly Branch (Timberlake) set off on a journey to rescue her friends. Together, this mismatched duo embark on a rescue mission full of adventure and mishaps – trying to tolerate each other long enough to get the job done. 

Trolls will be screening in the Waterfront on Saturday, October 29th at 11 AM.  For tickets, please comment below with your favorite DreamWorks movie.  Tickets will be emailed to winners Friday afternoon.

How To Train Your Dragon 2

Children’s animated movies have an easy way of capturing the attention of any naïve little one with catchy tunes, adorable characters, and goofy plots. But then there are animated movies such as “Frozen” (2013) and “The Lion King” (1994) that have a more serious, deeper story line. How to Train Your Dragon 2 falls right into that category.

MV5BMzMwMTAwODczN15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDk2NDA4MTE@._V1_SX214_AL_

Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, and Jonah Hill are amongst many who lend their voice talents to this animated story of young man, Hiccup (Baruchel), and his best dragon friend, Toothless. Five years after the Vikings and the dragons called a truce, the island of Berk is in another serious danger after Hiccup discovers a new island with filled with mean dragon slayers. In a direct disobedience of his father, Stoick (Butler), Hiccup goes on a quest to find the enemies’ fearless leader, but he finds someone a little more delicate; his mother, Valka (Blanchett).

This movie holds a warm lesson for children who have lost their mommies or daddies, orphans with wondering holes in their hearts about their biological parents, or young people in single parent homes. The fictitious story makes those children gravitate to the film with experience and reality.

The movie keeps the love for dragons alive. The mythical creatures, magnified in 3D features, come in many different shapes, colors, and sizes for the second time around. No longer an enemy, the dragons were friendlier than the first movie and they ultimately turn out to be the heroes.

Dragons

If “Frozen” (2013) is the best animated movie of the new millennium, then How To Train Your Dragon 2 is coming in a close second, along with “Wreck It Ralph” (2012). All three movies possess the qualities of a timeless, classic animation: enchanting characters, mild humor, and life application. It’s a tedious task to involve all three conditions, but this sequel pulls it off.

4 Stars: How To Train Your Dragon 2 is a healthy balance between fact and fiction. Yes, dragons are fake. But, the key messages from the animated film is very real; a true friend will never leave your side, and that there’s true healing after losing a loved one.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman

Mr_Peabody_&_Sherman_Poster2

Dreamworks Animation’s newest creation, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, is an odd account about a dog, Mr. Peabody (voice by Ty Burrell) and his legally adoptive human son, Sherman (voice by Max Charles). Mr. Peabody, a world renowned genius, faces child welfare interference when people question his parenting abilities. His outspoken 7-year-old son, Sherman, introduces his school boy crush, Penny Peterson (voice by Ariel Winter), to a time machine his canine father previously concocted. The trio, Mr. Peabody, Sherman and Penny travels to many different historical timeframes and events.

The time traveling instances are great history reminders for adults like me, but even more interesting, new experiences for children. With Black History Month in our rear view mirror, families can continue the learning with this movie. My children left the theatre amused and delighted, but they also asked, “Hey mommy, who is King Tut? What is the Mona Lisa? When was the Trojan War? Why were they fighting?” Realistically, the answers are above their pay grades, but it provides an opportunity for creative at-home projects surrounding World History.

Mr. Peabody’s time machine was similar to 2013’s “Free Birds.” The Thanksgiving animated movie also had a plot involving a time traveling contraption where a Presidential turkey went back to the first Thanksgiving to prevent people from traditionally putting turkeys on the menu. I do not know if time traveling is a trend, but it was very close in timing.

The movie’s animation is crisp, pristine, and innovating. The evolution of animation, however, has made great strides too. The first short, inexpensive cartoons produced by Walt Disney in 1928 has transformed into $100 million projects over the past century. From ‘Shrek’ to ‘The Lego Movie’, it takes a pretty penny to make animated films.

The budget for ‘Mr. Peabody and Sherman’ is $145 million. The movie will slowly make that money back in the box office and generate a positive buzz.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman is a smart story about friendship and family, with a broader lesson in diversity, differences and change.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman Passes

Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine—the Wabac—to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes the Wabac out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidently rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time-traveling trio will make their mark on history. (courtesy of GOFOBO.com)
