Zootopia! So Cute!

This morning (Friday morning when I started this post) I got a text at 5:55am. One of my besties, whom I haven't seen in, ugh! too long, sent me this, "Ok I need you to go watch and review some movies on your blog because I trust your judgement. Also I miss you and love you."

First of all, C, I miss and love you too! Secondly, you read my blog??? Really, I was pretty sure only 3 people read my blog, and not always that many. Thirdly, anytime you want my opinion on a movie just ask, seriously, I have probably seen it! And finally, what a great way to start my day! (thankfully I was already awake).

So by C's request, I shall now review Zootopia... It's been a few weeks, so forgive me if I get anything wrong, it isn't as fresh as my movies I review usually are.


I mentioned Zootopia's preview in my review of the Good Dinosaur. Just the preview put me in fits of giggles... can't breathe this is so ridiculous giggles... they really are the best kind of giggles. And I am happy to say the movie didn't disappoint. Now I wasn't in giggles the entire time, but I giggled throughout.

Plot Summary:
Judy Hopps is a bunny that dreams to be a police officer in the beautiful city of Zootopia, where predators and prey live harmoniously. With everyone doubting that a bunny rabbit can take on big bad guys, Judy works unceasingly in the police academy to prove them wrong and follow her dream. Though graduating first in her class at the academy, once in Zootopia, she still isn't taken seriously, and is assigned as a meter-maid. Until she essentially tricks her boss into giving her an impossible case of a missing predator. Then things get tricky!

Cinematography.... err... I mean animation:
Of course it was beautiful! It's Disney.

 The soundtrack was good. The only song that stood out to me while at the movie was Shakira's Try Everything, but the Zootopia Suite is very fun as are a lot of the other songs if you take the time to listen to them on Spotify.

Overall Thoughts:
I loved it!!! It is fun and witty. There are lots of underlying lessons, but the two that stood out the most for me were, even if you're afraid, or think you might fail, you still should try (ergo the song Try Everything), and the second lesson is on prejudice, and how it can go both ways. I laughed lots. It's a nice, feel good movie. The sloths still kill me, they were my favorite!!!

Parent Guide:
Some scary jump scenes with "savage" animals. There is also a part with nude animals... which is, ya know, how we are used to seeing them... but still they make a big deal about it so if you are uncomfortable with that, now you are aware. (It's been awhile, so I don't remember the language, so I apologize if there is anything else.)

I'll show you the non-sloth trailer since that one was featured in a differnet post.

Megs said...

Suey, yeah, it would probably be Meh... for you, cause you are not very into these types of movies, but it is still very cute!

Carley, I love you back!
