Okay. I just read the bài viết myself out of undying curiosity (click link
to read it yourself), and I have to say . . . I'm laughing my tail feathers off. This is what I would say if I had the opportunity to talk to this guy.
Ms, Inkoo Kang,
Your "review"—if bạn can call it that—on the upcoming Penguins of Madagascar
movie is laughable. This so-called review delves too much into your interpretation of everything about the movie that was wrong, give hoặc take that one statement about almost enjoying that one chase scene. If bạn wanted to give a proper review, bạn should've first được trao much thêm information on how the movie could've been improved and WHY the points bạn mentioned were wrong, rather than just stating WHAT was wrong. bạn want to talk big words and over-analyzing faults? Try this on, Ms. Inkoo Kang.
bạn have focused too much on the film's faults, giving only one side to your argument. To provide a solid and sound argument, one must point out why the other side to the argument is wrong. Allow me to demonstrate.
bạn claim the penguins are "unfunny, unmoving, and uninspired," but bạn never explained why bạn think so. I'll have bạn know many think the penguins are funny at least at times. Whether it's a one-liner ("We killed 'em and ate their livers.") hoặc it's just an action (Come on, the penguins playing at the train controls in the third film was a little funny. Just a little.), there's at least one thing the penguins have done to make someone laugh. Even if they haven't for you, doesn't mean they're necessarily "unfunny." bạn just have a different sense of humor, I presume.
As far as "unmoving," I admit the penguins haven't had many "moving" moments in the "Madagascar" trilogy. However, as far as the trailers go, bạn have to admit, Skipper bringing the young hatchling (Private) into his brotherhood was just a little moving. Of course, I wouldn't know this until I watched the movie, especially since bạn didn't explain why bạn felt it was unmoving yourself.
"Uninspired"? Do bạn know not the meaning? Inspired; adjective: aroused, animated, hoặc imbued with the spirit to do something, bởi hoặc as if bởi Supernatural hoặc divine influence (dictionary.reference.com). What makes bạn think the movie is uninspired? I'm thinking it might be inspired to, I don't know, make people laugh. There's probably some better message in the movie as well, since, from what I've seen from DreamWorks, there always is if bạn think hard enough. I have yet to figure out what it is myself, since I obviously haven't seen it, but I'm sure I can come up with something. My guess is that it'd be along the lines of brotherhood hoặc something, but I don't know yet.
Speaking of, bạn say the film has a "distinct lack of purpose." Which phim chiếu rạp do bạn think has a purpose? It would have been absolutely fantastic for bạn to have được trao us some examples for why bạn believe the movie has no purpose (you have a right to uphold your opinion, but bạn have to support it if bạn want others to agree with you). Furthermore, what would've được trao the movie purpose for you? Your thoughts on that would've been nice. bạn also mentioned that the movie "caters to an audience that doesn't exist" because of the references not many people would get. How would bạn know that? My best friend is a người hâm mộ of a hiển thị I've never even heard of until he told me he liked it. How do bạn know no one will understand those references? While many people will not, it still brings a smile to the face of those who would get that reference. Additionally, the movie may still bring a smile to the face of the unknowing "eight-year-olds" because I would imagine it still has funny moments. Even if they don't get a reference, doesn't mean they won't find it funny (I've found references funny without fully understanding them. I know I'm not the only one). I realize I'm ignorant to if these references will be funny hoặc not, but then again, not everyone has the same sense of humor as I.
bạn đã đưa ý kiến that there "isn't much to the film's story, yet it's stuffed to the gills with plot." If there's one thing I've noticed about DreamWork's films, it's that it's never just a story. The "Madagascar" trilogy relays the message that trang chủ isn't where bạn are, but who you're with. "Shrek" is a story about acceptance, correlating to the idea that everyone's different, and that's okay, and bạn have to accept yourself and others to truly be happy. "Kung Fu Panda" sends a message in that to accomplish anything, bạn have to first believe in yourself ("There is no secret ingredient"). It all starts with you. Even if this movie is an exception to this idea, it would be really awesome if bạn would've explained why bạn feel that way.
bạn mentioned that Dave's character is basically ruined because of his humor. Last time I checked, audiences tình yêu a villain with a little humorous side. A villain that's too dark wouldn't appeal to younger audiences anyway (ooh, that reminds me of your "point" made earlier. hm . . .).
First and foremost about your thoughts on North Wind, it's a SEAL, not an OTTER. If bạn don't know the facts before bạn propose an argument, then you've basically ruined any chance of gaining support because people will believe bạn have no idea what you're talking about. Second, what makes bạn think Eva's only purpose is to be sexy? How do bạn know they're not also relaying the idea that women can be intelligent as well? Not to mention that from what I've seen in the trailers, Kowalski is the only one falling for her. bạn could've at least explained why it seemed that way to you.
The following paragraph is merely just my opinion of your argument about Classified, and has nothing to do about how bạn presented it. I must say, I do partially agree with your argument about the pompous Agent Classified, but I think it's pretty awesome that Skipper has someone in his same covert classification to be compared to, causing a humorous clash between the duo. And I believe he wants a little thêm than just "taking the credit." How do bạn know he just doesn't want động vật to be safe? How do bạn know he doesn't want some credit because he feels as though he needs the support from his team? Meaning, if he doesn't seem as though he made a success conceived with his help, he won't seem as important, and North Wind will see him as a failure? You'd be surprised what insecurity can drive someone to do. Of course, that is only my opinion, and I would not know until I watched the movie to make my own interpretation.
I have no problem if bạn like the movie hoặc not. But if you're going to post a review for the whole world to see, DO IT RIGHT.
Now, did bạn see how I presented my counter-argument? I used examples from the trailers, and even other phim chiếu rạp to present my case. I also mentioned your side of the argument to help hiển thị a contrast between my and your opinion, as to allow my readers to make up their own minds, rather than present one side and BOMBARD them with my opinion, presenting it as if it were solid fact. Your very vague descriptions of your opinions don't exactly tell anyone why they shouldn't watch it. All I see is, "Don't watch it because it's bad." If bạn would've just explained why
it's bad, then bạn would've done just fine, and I wouldn't have đã đưa ý kiến a word.
Lots of love, peacebaby7
To the fanguins, the main reason I wrote this is to make those who found the "review" unsettling realize how overly-critical this bài viết was. Based on the few các bình luận on her review, I see I'm not the only one who feels that her review could've been a lot better. I was not judging the fact that she didn't like the movie, but rather that she just needs to put thêm thought into her reviews. Your thoughts on my thoughts on her thoughts?
