I really wasn’t looking forward to any of Dreamworks Animation’s films that were coming out this year. “The Croods” seemed stupid and boring. “Turbo” seemed stupid and boring. And “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” (which was pushed back to a 2014 release) seemed…well….I had no interest in it, since I wasn’t familiar with the original show that it was based on. So all in all, I wasn’t looking forward to watching any of these.
But when you’re “The Animation Commendation”, it’s a sin not to watch these movies and even more a sin not to review them. With that said, I ended up watching “The Croods” when it came out on DVD. What’d I think? It was boring and I didn’t like it.
Well, Dreamworks Animation’s latest animated film, “Turbo” (a film about a snail who races in the Indianapolis 500), has shown itself to not be a run-away hit at all! Hmm, who’d have known? The film only grossed about $30 million in the domestic weekend box office. I myself have had NO interest in seeing this, although I’m sure I will see it when it comes to DVD. Have you seen it? If so, what did you think? If not, do you plan on seeing it?
Dreamworks Animation’s first animated film of the year seems to be a hit with audiences after opening with a weekend gross of $44 million! Have you seen this movie? What did you think about it? Do you want to see this movie? Let me know in the comments!
I, for one, was not excited about this animated film, nor am I excited about Dreamworks Animation’s next animated film that’s planned for release this year!
But everybody’s saying to give this movie a chance! I’ll most likely watch this when it comes out on DVD!
