Into the world of the Emperor Penguins, who find their soul mates through song, a penguin is born who cannot sing. But he can tap dance something fierce!
Fifth watch of Buddy the Elf. After directing the Mad Max-trilogy about a post-apocalyptic wasteland with much bloodshed, George Miller thought to himself: “let’s make a motion capture film about tap-dancing penguins, my fans will love that.” I just read two reviews on this, which said: “in the year of the animated movie, this one soars above them all” and “in a year rich with animation options, Happy Feet stands head and shoulders above its competition.” These statements, first of all make, me wonder whether me and these critics have seen the same movie, but mostly whether they have cared to check out Paprika - also a 2006 movie - and also why they would consider this a ‘strong’ year…
George Miller's "Happy Feet" has a lot going for it: Hugh Jackman singing Elvis, Elijah Wood voicing the world's cutest penguin, and animated seals snarling like beasts from a horror film. The film is an upbeat, music-infused, CG-animated epic with a dark and timely edge that, though it is not quite satisfyingly developed, adds importance to the family-friendly adventure.
The narrative focus of "Happy Feet" is Mumble, a tiny emperor penguin who is unable to sing like the rest of his species. He can, however, dance, which does not ingratiate him with the penguin community's stuck-in-the-past elders. Soon, Mumble sets out on a journey that culminates with, among other things, a move to end overfishing off of Antarctica's waters.
Ok, first off, penguins scare me. I'm convinced they are real world Mogwai, waiting to change into evil monsters. Nothing can be this cute without a catch.
So, my mother got this dvd for my kids as a Christmas present. I had already seen it and really didn't care much for it at all, due to aforementioned penguin related aversion and the fact that it was a bit bland and predictable.
The kids asked if they could watch it this morning as it is the first day of the Christmas holidays. So once again, while watching it, kids prove to be the most honest audience. At one point my daughter said: "Right, I'm…
I can only think of five words to describe Happy Feet with. Not because I'm lazy, but because I'm lost of other words: Peculiar, Beautiful, Scary, Original, Bizarre.
'Ve are ze forcibly cute penguins und soon ve will rule ze world!'
Well, I'm impervious to penguin cuteness so shove off. And stop singing for crying out loud. It's embarrassing.
*hits the blunt*
haha whoa man, are those penguins dancing
Incredibly well animated and full of fun.
It's not often a film leaves me so completely and utterly stumped as this one.
The entire experience was surreal from start to finish - I mean, going in, I expected a light-hearted film with some cute dancing penguins. I did not expect the film to become a Kafkaesque nightmare for the protagonist, Mumble, who is not only viciously ostracised by everyone around him for being incapable of singing by his superstitious penguin society lead by a hunchbacked autocrat who accuses him of being an abomination angering their Penguin God (this sentence is just bizarre, reading it back), but eventually ends up losing his mind in the captivity of a nightmarishly-portrayed zoo.
Should we talk about the penguin designs? There's…
Into the world of the Emperor Penguins, who find their soul mates through song, a penguin is born who cannot sing.
Enjoyable animated movie with more music than usual.
baby dancing penguins make me all fuzzy inside
I love this film. It is such a family film with amazing actors and actresses doing the voice overs for the animation.
I like the say they have used such methods to create the tapping noise for Mumble. Yet again this film as a message that is so key to life. Never judge a book by its cover and its ok to be different. I think that a great message to teach children at a young age =).
Beautifully animated but lacking spirit, Happy Feet is a run-of-the-mill animated film, but without an actual story.
Dancing penguins! They are really scraping the barrel here.
from the Creator of Babe and Mad Max
Before Rio (2011 film) and Surf's Up George Miller the man behind the Aussie blockbuster Mad Max movies and Babe: Pig In The City made the first Australian C.G.I. Non-Disney animated musical movie ever made since The Magic Pudding, It was a bit good Nicole Kidman's voice was hard to recognize so as Hugo Weaving's and Elijah Wood's apart from Robin Williams and Hugh Jackman and would have thought that Robin did a dual roles for two penguins nor to mention that the movie was both CGI and Live-Action, Miller picked good idea from a nature documentary of David Attenborough's Life In The Freezer which I watch last year in January.
