Fantastic Animated Film! Possible Spoilers (by madmanmike1980)
While Free Birds may not be an epic masterpiece, it's totally enjoyable and very family-friendly except for one gag involving a Native American's private area, but it's a minor gag and doesn't deter from the rest of the film . It has a ton of very funny moments, pretty good character development, and a couple of tear-jerking moments as well. As far as any slams against religion or perceived liberal propaganda, people are taking this movie way too seriously and things are being taken out of context in my opinion. It has a lot of moral lessons such as appreciating your friends <more>
and family, giving up selfish desires, and sacrificing yourself for others. Free Birds is definitely on par with other CGI animated features, and for the first full movie being released by Reel FX until now the studio has only done client work for other studios like 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., etc. , they've hit a home run right out of the gate! It may have a few flaws but what animated film doesn't , but it's a definite must-see! Hopefully there'll be a sequel and/or a T.V. series!
The greatest Turkey movie of all time! (by faizan_afzal2006)
In Free Birds, a duo of turkeys time travel back to Plymouth Colony's first Thanksgiving in hopes of swaying them away from consuming what would become the traditional bird of choice. The movie operates with the same logic, heart, and passable animation quality as a standard Saturday morning cartoon -- which is slightly less tolerable when extended to 90 minutes. Will the wee ones laugh? Yes. Will they be aching to get the hell out of there when adorable baby turkeys run scarce and the final act runs completely dry of humor? Probably. Like animated specials of yesteryear Free Birds feels <more>
like three episodes of a TV show stitched together. In the first, Jake makes his way to the White House. In part two, Jake and Reggie infiltrate a government base where they hijack S.T.E.V.E. George Takei , a talking time travel device who whisks them back to the days of the Pilgrims. And in chapter three, the duo encounters their turkey ancestors, including Reggie's new object of desire, Jenny Amy Poehler . The movie's silliness isn't an issue. It's that Free Birds suffers from the shotgun approach where every idea sticks. It's chaotic and rarely interesting. We meet Jenny and the other turkeys dressed in Native American garb because... they were here first and are being hunted by white men, maybe? halfway through the movie, the Chicken Run-Esq intro is thrown completely out the window, along with hints of a Bill & Ted radix. Free Birds can't figure out which successful movie of the past it wants to rip off without mercy, so it just goes for all of them.
Free Birds is one of the most intelligent movies to date. (by arie_glavi)
Warning: Contains Spoilers.If you are looking to teach your children about vegetarianism, animal rights, atheism, feminism, not blindingly following someone whether it be the "Great Turkey" or the government while also being entertained by satire or a critique on bro culture- then this movie is for you.I've seen a lot of children's movies and have come to realize that the scriptwriters, directors, and producers good ones at least know that they are really making movies that should also entertain adults- since they are the ones paying for their children to watch them. That <more>
being said, there some major differences for movies that are more intellectual than cartoons purely for children. Movies made for children yet have enough adult humor and a complex enough story-line for adults is hard to find.Ergo, anyone who doesn't understand the complexities of the movie 'Free Birds' might be lacking a little bit in the department upstairs.Free Birds is a movie I would show my children- it is a extremely good moral film and ethics take center stage.Reggie, the intelligent turkey ostracized by his witless peers for trying to warn them that they will get eaten and won't go to "Turkey Paradise" when they reach the little shack on their farm, or that the corn fire in the sky told to the masses by the turkey on the rock HINT: this turkey symbolizes a preacher and religion is actually a sun, is a great role model for young children who are gifted and find it hard to fit in with their peer groups. He is the true hero in the movie, even though as he says to Jenny, his female turkey love interest, that he doesn't have any muscles. He is the epitome of the quote "Those who are best suited to power, are those who do not seek it."Jake, who is Reggie's comrade in the film, is a more brawn than brains type of character that while with good intentions at heart, blindly follows "The Great Turkey" in realizing his destiny in saving turkeys from being eaten at Thanksgiving. The "Great Turkey" appears to Jake after he escapes from a terrible factory for mass producing poultry, and the "Great Turkey" appears before him in halo of white light giving him his mission, a magical doorknob and also to "Never ever give up."Jake also blindly follows authority The Great Turkey , and asks the turkeys to blindly follow him into war as well- they respond by asking important questions. Both are great characters and the differences among them are worth noting when it comes to their mistakes in the film: Jake makes the mistake of wanting glory and mistakenly leads the hunters directly to the turkey 'village' in the tree by a trail of powder from the horn he brings back to prove his feat. Reggie, on the other hand, is intelligent but gives up too quickly when he could have stayed. Both are real life mistakes that people make, and are a great teaching moment for children.Another teaching moment for children is that when Reggie undoes the traps set by the hunters, he does it by luck. A good moral lesson because only an idealist thinks anyone can do anything by only pure hard work- many successful people also had a little bit of luck.I especially liked how at the moment a new chief is decided, it is the female turkey, Jenny, who is chosen- and not her brawny brother, who was expected to become chief. Once again, another teaching moment for children about sexism and feminism and that women can be leaders, great leaders, as well. Jenny also does not get distracted by Reggie when he flirts with her, even though eventually she and him are a happy couple.When Reggie finds out that it was actually him that was "The Great Turkey" due to time travel, it was a great moment for teaching children about atheism- for those who do not believe in a God or God s . Theists or Agnostics can still use this opportunity to teach children about different ways of viewing the world, so that their child can make informed decisions.There is much to be loved about the simple humor in the film; I found the characters that were people The stoner pizza delivery boy, the general who 'has issues' and the President's daughter were spot on in terms of reality were well versed in adult satire. The television blaring, the pizza replacing the turkey any one who is a foodie must know how gross American fast-food pizza can be, and wonder how it can be so ubiquitous in American culture ... I could continue but I'd spoil all the fun for those who haven't watched it. It is also a great teaching tool for those who want to make their children aware of animal ethics, treatment and consumption of animals and animal products- vegetarians should delight at this movie. I rarely give movies 10/10. But there are so many moral lessons in this movie that are not easily apparent to the average American viewer IQ's in the U.S.A. averages at about 98, chew on that while munching your pizza and guzzling your soft drink or their children. But for those with IQ's a little higher, this movie is great film for both adults and children.It is a great Thanksgiving film, and hopefully, instead of meat, pizza or tofu could be served on the Thanksgiving menu.For those with IQs on the more average side, I am sure the visual effects will satisfy, although it is not a Micheal Bay film. Perhaps the turkeys catapulting flaming pumpkins or the squirrels applauding will be enough.
You should think twice before you eat that Thanksgiving turkey this year! Especially after you watch the movie, "Free Birds"! This is a wonderful animated comedy, packed with lots of action and adventure. Two turkeys team up to travel back in time to try to take turkey off the Thanksgiving menu for good. If this doesn't sound funny enough, these two turkeys have nothing in common with each other, argue constantly, and run into some hilarious situations when they travel back to pilgrim days. In order to change the course of history, the turkeys, Reggie Owen Wilson and Jake <more>
Woody Harrelson , must first learn to get along and put aside their differences. Reggie is a smart, although a rather lazy and weak turkey, while Jake is a strong and brave turkey, but very dumb. This duo makes for some great comedy! Then a female turkey that Reggie has a crush on makes it even funnier! This role of Jenny is voiced by the very funny Amy Poehler, which could not have been cast any better. The director, Jimmy Hayward, also directed "Horton Hears a Who!" He is also known for his work on "Finding Nemo," "Toy Story," "Monsters Inc.," and many more great animated hits. The soundtrack for "Free Birds" is also great.My favorite scene in this movie is when Jake rescues a bunch of baby turkeys, chicks, from a blazing fire. These adorable, tiny puffballs are clinging to his feathers, and looking up at this massive hero with huge eyes. It is just too cute! "Free Birds" is a family movie that is great for all ages. I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars. So don't miss out!
I laughed my butt off watching this movie at the theater last year with my daughters. They kept asking me why I was the only one laughing. And the reviews....What the hell? Does nobody else have a sense of humor?! This movie is awesome and silly, and I kind of felt stoned while watching it. But I wasn't. Owen Wilson And Woody Harroldson were so great as turkeys...hahahahahahahahaha.....I'm laughing again! Watch this with an open mind. Hilarious!!!!.......okay they told me I have to have ten lines of text without padded words. Huh. I thought usually they would want you to get to the <more>
point. Oh well. No matter. I can do it. Only one more line...This is stupid. I like Free Birds. Watch it. It is funny...TEN LINES! Yay!
Now I have seen a lot of movies, and currently we have two comedies running neck to neck, the wedding ringer as well as Paddington? is this film Better than Both? I have to say Yes. I think that this film has a pace that is great, kids wont know whats going on, but the people that are over thirty will definitely see whats happening. the faces of the birds, the interaction and brawn of some of the other birds, the gentle sweet little baby hatchlings and the circumstances revolving around a film that finds a story to loop into different definitive moments from which turkey is which onto the <more>
importance of possibilities and lack of intimacy becoming all too understandable as far as BEING within distance of the most adoprable and admirable other gendered noun as seen in this movie. He could leave, shes not gonna go. That's just how it is and how it will always be, who knows whats going on with her level of sexual dominance in the aging situation of gaining attention and identity amongst the others.
I don't understand the hate for this movie: is was just plain fun. I don't know how this movie is offensive, probably because I'm not American, so I can't comment on that. First off all: don't look for a message in this movie. I keep reading, people saying there is a message. There is NO MESSAGE here. It's just fun. It's so bad it's good. The plot didn't make any sense and that's what was funny about it.I'm very relieved to finally see an animated movie made just for fun and without feeling the need to add an unnecessary message or plot or emotional <more>
attachment. There was only one instance where they tried to get you emotionally involved, it didn't work but it didn't disturb me either.Very refreshing and highly recommended during the holiday season!
Sorry this is a film that doesn't deserve the bad reviews it got because if you cant find this film funny you are miserable as hell with no sense of humor because this is a extremely funny with slap stick humor, compared to most animated film this is so worth watching.The writing in this comedic tale is spot on with the humor -- while the voice performances and animation are brilliantly done. The only downside to the movie, is the lack of inclusion of the song's that normal come in to animated film's but seriously this was a laugh-out-loud movie that really only slows down during <more>
an attempt to throw in some romance. There is some amazing and hilarious animation done between Woody's voice acting for the character Jakeand the leader of the pack Chief Broadbeak voiced by Keith David in the old world when they try to out do each other in a macho contest, with some hilarious outrageous laugh out loud moments.Owen Wilson voices of Reggie, the only sain turkey among a dumb pack of turkeys was brilliant to show a unsung hero of the bird world, i like that they gave his character that romance element as well which was funny with Jenny voiced by Amy Poehler, who his character just acts like a love sick puppy but it just brilliant done. Through this whole film you just find yourself laugh because the level of the slap stick humor you just cant help but laugh your head off, i really don't know why some people can find this film funny, because I've never laugh so hard in my life at an animated film, special even more so with the angry birds reference, it just a classic animated film that all the family will love, you just cant go wrong with this animated film chicken run was good, just turkeys do it better.
1st watched 11/23/2013 – 8 out of 10 Dir-Jimmy Hayward : Hilarious & inventive animated movie about two turkeys who go back in time to try to change the fate of future turkey's ending up on the dinner table during this festive time of year. The writing in this comedic tale is spot on -- while the voice performances and animation are very well done. The only downside to the movie, in my opinion, is the lack of inclusion of the song Free Bird but seriously this was a laugh-out-loud movie that really only slows down during an attempt to throw in some romance. Owen Wilson is the voice <more>
of the one-of-the-kind turkey in a stupid current flock as the only one who knows they are getting fattened up to enter their death. The president pardons him from being the main course on Thanksgiving and he is living the good life until he runs into a wild turkey searching out a time machine to turn things around for his kind. Woody Harrelson is the voice of the wild one and the time machine, "Steve", leads them back to before the first Thanksgiving. There is some amazing and hilarious animation done between Woody's character and the leader of the pack in the old world when they try to outdo each other in a macho contest. I was wildly surprised with this movie with it's lame idea but the humor and pacing was great --- the turkey love part was a little much – but other than that this animated movie was excellent. If you are looking for a satisfying and fun time at the movies where you and the kids can enjoy it at the same time see this movie!!
