A surprising animated movie

13 years, 2 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.

A winner in every respect

“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller's feature-film debut as writers and directors, 2009's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs adapts Judi Barrett and Ron Barrett's beloved 1978 children's book with delightful results, making for an entertaining, hilarious and heartfelt animated picture that gives Pixar a run for their money. With the ability to appeal to adults and children alike, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is energetic and frenetically paced with sumptuous visuals, but Lord and Miller thankfully do not overlook character development or storytelling, ensuring that the movie has staying power beyond its surface-level pleasures. Lord and Miller structure the picture like an old-fashioned disaster film, imaginatively parodying and paying homage to the likes of Twister, Armageddon, The Core ” read more

" Revisit Viewing Date: February 4th Via: Stan. Plot: A local scientist is often regarded as a failure until he invents a machine that can make food fall from the sky. But little does he know that things are about to take a turn for the worst. Rating: 8.3/10 Why Did I Watch It? I wanted to revisit it to review it."

“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, charming and quirky. Bill Ha” 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
