A surprising animated movie

11 years, 5 months ago at Dec 26 10:02
When I heard about this movie, I have to admit it, I thought it sounded really daft but, surprisingly, the whole thing turned out to be really damned entertaining. Indeed, I thought it would be all right but it was actually much better than I thought it would be. Basically, it is actually a very original animated movie, really weird but in a good way, with some very funny parts. Since then, Chris ... read more

Cuter and more imaginative than I imagined, even if it does feel a little bit like microwaved wonder and imagination, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a minor delight. Geeky wunderkind grows up (Bill Hader) to invent a machine that transforms water into food so that it rains down hamburgers, for instance. Once shunned in his small town of Chewandswallow, one of many food puns, he finds himself... read more

As a huge fan of animated films, I actually really enjoyed this film, same with the rest of my family, and this is coming from someone who has no knowledge of the book really. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is funny and imaginative with a lot going for it.

Columbia Pictures’ and Sony Pictures Animation’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs will be the most delicious event since macaroni met cheese. Inspired by the beloved children’s book, the film focuses on a town where food falls from the sky like rain.

“As a huge fan of animated films, I actually really enjoyed this film, same with the rest of my family, and this is coming from someone who has no knowledge of the book really. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is funny and imaginative with a lot going for it.

The animation itself is absolutely incredible. The colours are superb, the backgrounds are lush and the characters are well-modelled. The best of the visuals is the one with the spaghetti tornado, utterly jaw-dropping in every sense of the word. The score is quirky and fun, with a nice end credits song, while the story is very original and imaginative. The script is another strength, so many funny moments without feeling too much.

The voice acting is wonderful, bringing to life characters that are appealing, charmi” read more

My Top 199 Favorite Sci-Fi Movies... Of Like, Ever (199 movies items)

" Cloudy With A Chance is an animated film that doesn't try to compete with the more sophisticated computer "animatronics" of CGI titans, Disney or Pixar. Instead, it goes for a more distinctive approach of the 3D hijinx that provides the fuel for it's culinary cast. For example, notice how the main character of Flint Lockwood moves his body about not in the motion-capture realism that most other big budget animated films rely on, but instead jumps around in a more slapsticky kind of propulsi"

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

“Cuter and more imaginative than I imagined, even if it does feel a little bit like microwaved wonder and imagination, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a minor delight. Geeky wunderkind grows up (Bill Hader) to invent a machine that transforms water into food so that it rains down hamburgers, for instance. Once shunned in his small town of Chewandswallow, one of many food puns, he finds himself embraced as a savior until it all goes sideways.   It must go sideways otherwise there would be no plot. There has to be a romance (Anna Faris, weathergirl trying to make good). There must be a long-standing rival turned friend (Andy Samberg, playing cocky turned humble). Cloudy hits all these beats and throws in a goofy animal sidekick (Neil Patrick Harris as the “voice” of a monkey), dad” read more
