Not a renter- a READER

Ok first off it is about owls....and first thing there was owl pellets. EW And then during the movie I had to explain what they were to my kids. And the whole movie was pretty violent as cartoons go. There was no blood. Which was good, but there was killing and even without it, my son was still asking if they were dead the whole movie. There was one super cute owl named Digger....and I had to tell them about why he buries under the ground. Maybe my kids were extra questioning? IDK But it was super distracting and seemed necessary to explain at the time. The would have missed out if there wasn't an explanation. And the whole metal thing has spurred us into more science so maybe this was a good movie for learning- but we are reading the books instead. And even just into chapter 3 there is a lot the movie didn't cover. My kids are 8 and have normal learning tendencies and it seemed that we would have benefited more if we had seen Secretariat....... IMHO

I took my 9 yrs. old grandson to see this movie. To my delight, not only did he enjoy it, but so did I. It's the classis good vs. evil story, told from the Owl's point of view, but when trying to instill the values of community and compassion in your child in this day an age, this movie was a great tool.

Same plot, different production company. Yes, I know about Joseph Campbell and myth and heroes, but did we really need another plot that is SO predictable there isn't a single surprise or splash of originalty--from the stick-shaking porcupine (uh, didn't we have a stick-shaking prophet in Lion King?) to the most unoriginal conclusion, which I won't say more because I'll ruin the surpise-- Oh wait. There ISN'T a surprise. But I won't reveal it here anyway. And the birds! While graphically rendered with precision, one can only stare at a screen full of birds (with weepy eyes) for so long. I need more than 2 hrs of undulating feathers to keep me entertained . . .
