Last month I got about halfway through. Let's see if I can improve this year! This challenge list looks particularly…
Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole
On his way to finding a legend...he will become one.
Soren, a young barn owl, is kidnapped by owls of St. Aggie's, ostensibly an orphanage, where owlets are brainwashed into becoming soldiers. He and his new friends escape to the island of Ga'Hoole, to assist its noble, wise owls who fight the army being created by the wicked rulers of St. Aggie's. The film is based on the first three books in the series.
I am in a state of utter disbelief. Zack Snyder might be a genius. That was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. It made my heart soar. Tears flowed from beginning to end. These owls were infinitely adorable. It's the most visually breathtaking animated film around. The film features beauty beyond words. Wow. I love Zack Snyder.
A fun, gorgeous, adventure film. I love the reality rooted design of the characters and so many of the the animation subtleties.
Some hideous music selections are the only things that bring this movie down for me.
At least the animation is pretty.
The beats of the story can't help but feel familiar and predictable, but Guardians manages to succeed despite these limitations. Mostly thanks to director Zack Snyder, whose eye for action and beautiful CGI make this one a lot of fun to watch, if nothing else.
Film #16 of my March 2016 Scavenger Hunt
Film #18: A movie directed by Zack Snyder as preparation for Batman v. Superman (#3)
Wow. Just wow. I was literally not expecting this. Legend of the Guardians is better than Watchmen. There I said it. Better than Watchmen.
Seriously, who knew that an animated movie about warrior owls would be a far superior movie to whatever that film about the naked blue alien was all about? Still don't get it.
Does it have flaws! Sure it does; it could have had a bit more characterization and exposition in setting up this fantasy world, some of the supporting characters on the good side can feel annoying at times (especially when they're…
Since it was announced recently (to the joy of some and detriment of others) that Zack Snyder will be directing the Justice League movie in 2017 (following his Batman/Superman movie), I decided to watch this strange owl movie that he directed in 2010. It was just as bad as I imagined, and I still have no idea why he thought it would be a good idea to direct a computer generated movie about owls fighting. Even if I could tell you what was going on, I never really cared. I am not sure why it's ranked 7.0 on IMDB unless an army of passionate 11-year olds did that.
Not bad fun little film. To be honest I didn't pay too much attention as I getting ready for my flight to Calgary. Going to the fan expo.. Yay.
You take one look at a movie like this and you be surprised by who's behind it? That's the reaction I got when I first saw this in theaters in 3D and at the start of the end credits, you see that the director is Zack Snyder. Yes, THAT Zack Snyder. Surprisingly, he (with the help of EFX company Animal Logic) does a great job crafting a flawlessly animated fantasy-adventure that'll keep kids' eyeballs glued to the screen. A perfect antidote for the dark & sometimes frustrating work that Snyder helmed before and after this.
Beautifully animated YA story starring owls. It's a fun watch.
I liked this movie, nice visuals, good voice-overs, story was decent. it's a good movie overall.
I've watched this film a few times before, thanks to my daughter, and my reactions remain the same:
1. This is gorgeous computer animation.
2. This plotline is a bit ... complicated and flimsy at the same time.
3. Hey, catchy song!
4. Wow, that's an awful title.
Not much more to say than that, even now. The CG owls and their feathers are still amazing, the plot (a mash-up of three books from the original book series) still feel clumsily structured, and the "To the Sky" tune is something I keep finding myself whistling afterwards.
Oh, and the title remains a horrible mangling of the books'
Guardians of Ga'Hoole".
Directed by Zack Snyder (of all people), the movie also…
Wow i can't believe it took me this long to watch this flim. It seriously is one of the most beautiful flims I have seen and vision by Zach Synder who directs this flim which is also a great story and the emotional journey you go on with Soren and his friends and the loss of his brother to be a guardian it's just an incredible flim. It will definitely be in my top 5 of Zach Synder flims
I do wish there was a sequel happening but at this point it's probably unlikely to happen which is unfortunate but at least we got this one and it was fantastic

Zack Snyder Owl Movie
The classic story of finding your place in the world. This time with adorable owls.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is one of Zack Snyder's better movies, and it's worth seeing, but it's also heavily-flawed, with sluggish pacing; owls who are often difficult to tell apart from one another; some strange voice miscasting (it broke my heart to hear Sam Neill as the voice of a traiterous owl who is fed to bats as a reward for his treachery); and a sometimes annoying soundtrack (who had the stupid idea to put an alternative rock song by Owl City in the movie and then repeat it during the end credits? That drove me nuts while working as an usher cleaning out shows for this movie at an AMC back in 2010).
But the movie still kind of works, thanks to…
