One of the things my kids and I have in common is our love of a good story!
For the past 15 years, the majority of movies I've watched have been PG rated and mostly cartoons & animation...because I am a mommy of so many kids!
Honestly, I don't mind...though some might!
Especially in this day and age, a lot of the stories in these animated movies are really good!
Even better than the messages in movies intended for adults.
We received this gift pack, sent from Illumination Entertainment, free of charge for this review/feature! The gift pack included the bluray/dvd/digital copy of the movie, t-shirts, keychains and character pencil toppers. I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about the movie, or our feelings on the movie.
We love movies that have good, positive messages that really help encourage our kids to strive for their goals and to push through, even when the odds are against them all.
Our REAL LIFE is so full of struggles and strife too, it's always enouraging to have our kids know that no matter how hard life is, and despite struggles, you can always overcome them if you never give up!
Attitude really is everything sometimes!
One movie, that we really enjoyed seeing recently from Illumination Entertainment, that is now out on Bluray/DVD/Digital Copy is "SING".
I think that each one of us could relate to one of the characters in the movie in some way or another. Plus we love movies with great music too!
This one was a double dose of both!
I could definitely relate to Reese Witherspoon's character Rosita (the mother pig with 25 piglets).
She loves being a mommy & loves her little piglets (all 25 of them). But she is just wanting to know that she is more than just a mom!
This is a struggle that a lot of "stay at home moms" deal with.
She is talented in other ways, other than caring for her young, and she learns to let that inner DIVA shine through! Her family learns to appreciate her more (for all she does for them) and she learns to that she's allowed to LOVE HERSELF a little too!
She was her favorite because she could sing like nobody else! She struggles & deals with her stagefright, yet manages to overcome her insecurities to...well, you just have to see the movie! Our youngest daughter just did her first musical/play and overcame her fear of stagefright & did an amazing job. Maybe seeing this movie helped her come out of her shell on stage?
My oldest son, who was interested in this movie too (which kind of surprised me), even though he's a full on teenager...loved Scarlett Johansson's Punk Rock Porcupine "Ash", who despite her rough exterior could sing like a lark.
My oldest daughter's favorite was Johnny, gangster gorilla, who is trying to break free of his family's bad reputation and criminal record, to pursuse his talent (and he really is super talented). He learns that sometimes, pursuing his passions is the best path to take, regardless of the LIFE his family is telling him he needs to follow.
He struggles with finding the strength & courage to pursue his passion above all else...
This was my youngest son's favorite character too!
This movie is adorable and if you haven't seen it yet you should...and if you have and you loved it...you should own it on BluRay/DVD/Digital NOW!!
Or maybe there's a chance you could win a copy, so you'll have it for your own personal movie library!
