So, just a heads up. This specific review was originally written at a time when I didn’t count on falling behind on reviews, so my solution was to cram them into a single post. However, I hated the way they turned out, so now I’m putting them into their own reviews. In short, this review is going to be crazy short. With that said, let’s carry on.

Cast: Matthew McConaughey (WHITE BOY RICK [2018], GOLD [2017], KUBO [2016], and upcoming films SERENITY [2019] and THE BEACH BUM [2019]), Taron Egerton (ROBIN HOOD [2018], KINGSMAN [2015] and 2 [2017], EDDIE THE EAGLE [2016], and the upcoming ROCKETMAN [2019]), Reese Witherspoon (WRINKLE/TIME [2018], HOME AGAIN [2017], PENELOPE [2006], LEGALLY BLONDE [2001] and 2 [2003], and the upcoming LEGALLY BLONDE 3 [2020]), Scarlett Johannson (AVENGERS: INFINITY [2018], GHOST/SHELL [2017], JUNGLE BOOK [2016], CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER [2014], IRON MAN 2 [2010], and upcoming films AVENGERS: ENDGAME [2019] and JOJO RABBIT [2019]), and Seth MacFarlane (LOGAN LUCKY [2017], TED 2 [2015], and HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY [2008])

Writer/Co-Director: Garth Jennings (SON OF RAMBOW [2007] and THE HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY [2005])
Co-Director: Christophe Lourdelet (directorial debut; congrats, sir)
Composer: Joby Talbot (PENELOPE)
Editor: Gregory Perler (DESPICABLE ME [2010], ENCHANTED [2007], and the upcoming SING 2 [2020])

This is my honest opinion of: SING

 

(REVIEW)

Originally, I loathed seeing this animated film. Thought it was going to be just these animals singing current pop culture songs that everyone hears on the radio and be completely irrelevant in a year. Despite high praise from critics and word of mouth, I still wasn’t really excited. Technically, I wasn’t wrong, but it’s better than I thought. If the celebrity cast really is singing, then it’s pretty damn cool to listen to and there’s some nicely written characters, primarily the core cast. Some great, and even impressive animation at times. Although Mike the mouse is a hit or miss when it comes to being a likable jerk to an unlikable jerk. And there are plotlines in the film that get resolved because the script demands it rather than have an integral character arc and cliches up every which way. If you want to bring your kids, you’ll be fine, there’s nothing wrong here. I think there’s better kids movies out there, but this will do the trick.

My honest rating for SING: 3/5
