Cats are Not Dogs

Cats aren't dogs, and they'd like us to remember that, an animal behavior expert tells the Telegraph. We stress them out by expecting them to be as sociable as our canine friends, happy to be petted and hang out in the same space as other cats. But that just doesn't fit with how cats think, says  [ ... ]

MOVIE REVIEW - Mr. Peabody And Sherman

Generally, I don't review too many animated movies.  There are way too many of them, most have the same formula.  And really, what are you going to say about a most of these movies? They are a built in love fest before they hit theaters.

Enter Mr. Peabody And Sherman.  For most who see this, they will have no idea this was a cartoon in the 1960's that was part of the Rocky and Bullwinkle franchise.  (Who?) Anyway, 50 years later with incredible animation techniques and an unending and salacious appetite from the the public for animated movies, this has made it to the theaters.

Mr. Peabody is a dog that is a genius.   He is blessed with immense intelligence and lives with his "son" Sherman, who is a young human boy.  Peabody is world famous and has invented all kinds of amazing things in his incredible house, including the "Way Back."  The Way Back, is a time machine that is kept as a secret with Sherman, and together they take amazing journeys to important times past in history.  And that's what they do here.

This has been updated for today's world, in both story lines, sociatal relevance, and in movie making.  This is a fast paced, action based and for the most part pretty fun.  They spend a few minutes up front explaining to the novices who Peabody is, and how he and Sherman came to be "family."  They create a fun Peabody that is intelligent, and barks out incredibly difficult dialogue for most of this movie.  This is not some Disney, 4th grade singing and dancing flick.  This is actually kind of a thinking man's animated movie, and that should be applauded.  Oh yeah, don't panic!  There of course is some silly "poop" humor here. Whew!  (Gotta have that.) But overall this has a brain.  This is made by the same studio that made How To Train Your Dragon, which I think is one of the best animated movies n a long time.  (BTW, Dragon 2 is on the way.)

These two and others fly off to actually important historical times, and through fun, slick animation, and a terrific musical soundtrack, slightly expose us to things that most animated movies do not.  Overall this is pretty fun and imaginative.  A strong list of celebrity voices gives this a nice lift.  Is this perfect?  Well, no. But it is pretty fun.  A bit chaotic at times, but enjoyable for young and old alike.

Mr. Peabody And Sherman.  No matter if you remember him or not, fun.
