A Quick Tip by woopak_the_thrill

  • Nov 13, 2013
Often has Dreamworks animation been called the ‘poor man’s Pixar’ and yet, these days, even Pixar has their misses. Well, agree with me or not, Dreamworks has given Pixar its much needed competition, and sporting spectacular animation and a good sense of humor, “The Croods” is another exercise that is familiar and yet, it gives its viewers a lot of things to like about it. 

               Gran voiced by Cloris Leachman, Eep voiced by Emma Stone, Grug voiced by Nicolas Cage, Thunk voiced by Clark Duke, Ugga voiced by Catherine Keener in "The Croods."
 
The film also has themes that carries some needed message about ‘living life’. While not exactly polished and entertaining as “How To Train Your Dragon”, adults and kids can find something to enjoy in this film. The slapstick humor and colorful animation is just enjoyable, and the voice acting led by Nicholas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds speak a lot for its screenplay. 
 
This is a family movie and so it has its familiar set of rules and formula. Yes, the pacing may be off a little, but it is a cute film. Nothing special but certainly is hilarious in its own right. Recommended. [3 ½ Out of 5 Stars]

DreamWorks Tackles Prehistoric Earth With Trademarked Style
You really have to hand it to DreamWorks; often considered second fiddle to the mastery of the CG craft that is Pixar, these guys just continue to release solid family flick after solid family flick.  Known as the “money studio”, The Croods is a good example of genuinely clever writing and a solid story carrying a piece over just an inflated budget being used to force advertising down our proverbial throats.       Released back in March of 2013 domestically, …
