Why are all of illuminations movies so unfunny and cringeworthy?
>tfw this movie concept actually sounds fun
I wish LITERALLY ANY OTHER STUDIO had thought of it
After Horton, I was excited for the Lorax and another charming animated Seuss movie. But Illumination just somehow has this way of just falling flat on their face and trying, and trying, and trying to nail in this forced humor that feels unnatural, unhumorously raunchy, and insincere. Plus the weird way their characters just seem to move around the screen all haphazardly without charm. Maybe they'd be good at shorts, but full length movies are just awful.
remember when we saw the trailer for Despicable Me a year before release
remember when it turned out to just be the first 3 minutes of the movie
remember when the exciting thing that happened had nothing to do with Gru
remember when the most villainous character in the movie was the woman running the orphanage
remember when DM2 was unfunnier
remember when minions made everyone on facebook into an even bigger shithead than usual
Assuming you're talking about Secret Life of Pets.
It's because the concept is fucking boring and trite, and there's nothing that could be done story or character wise to make it work. It could be handled better if it had unique animation, but this is bland CGI.
And remember when the 'moral' of DM2 was completely at odds with the beginning of the movie and the latter half of the first?
Gru was doing a fine job as a single parent. Either don't shoehorn in a wife or make him not fully capable of handling children by himself.
Oh god. I actually like the DM movies and I'm reasonably hopeful about SLOP but god damn does this look like garbage.
I had some sort of faith in Illumination, but this looks all sorts of ass.
>to a song about fucking
>Matthew McConaughey as a koala
>Lorax and Minions made me retroactively despise their gorgeous animation style
So that confirms it, Ghost World is still the only good /co/ related film ScarJo's ever been in.
>A mouse (Seth MacFarlane) who croons as smoothly as he cons, a timid teenage elephant (Tori Kelly) with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother (Reese Witherspoon) run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla (Taron Egerton) looking to break free of his family’s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson) struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo. Each animal arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.
So is Illumination just gonna use their Minions shekles to be the Asylum of animation?
>Why are all of illuminations movies so unfunny and cringeworthy?
The guy who runs Illumination used to work at 20th Century Fox Animation, where he was responsible for Ice Age and Alvin and the Chipmunks movies.
That sums it up.
No fucking way
There's literally nothing more to this movie than animals singing and dancing and raising and lowering their eyebrows.
Usually it's the very first teaser that shows all the characters dancing and singing, like the recent Trolls trailer, but literally all the substance of this movie is going to be is just singing, dancing, smug cartoon animals.
