Happy Feet

Just came back from watching Happy Feet. It's ADORABLE!

First of all, the animations are amazing, really....sometimes, you even forget it's animated. That's how good the animations are!

The music is great, and makes you want to get up in the middle of the theater and start dancing.

And the actors do a great job with the voices...Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman and Brittany Murphy all sing their own songs in the movie. Elijah Wood does a really good job with the voice for the main penguin role.

Here's a bit of music trivia from the movie for you:

Initially, Prince refused to allow the use of his song, "Kiss", for the film. However, after seeing footage of the film, he not only changed his mind and allowed the song to be used, but also wrote an additional original song for the film to use in the closing credits.

So, if you have nothing to do this New Year/Eid holiday, go watch Happy for the whole family!

Happy Feet and Happy New Year, DS!

We've just come back from Night at the Museum. We really enjoyed it.

Hi T - Thanks for the Bday wishes!

To comment on HAppy Feet... I saw it at the theatre (with niece) and was really really disappointed! Some parts were really fun but overall, i found it to be very moyen (mediocre)and way too long. BTW, i like animation and children's movies, usually. Have you seen Monster's Inc. and The Incredibles? I loved those.

Anyway - I recommended my sister not pay to see Happy Feet at the Theatre but wait to see it on DVD if she really wanted to see it.
