The story is about two realms that boarded each other but are completely different and how strange love can be. If you haven't heard of the movie here is a trailer:
It is more of a "family" movie; we went to the late show and were the only two in the theater. It was a bit odd but it meant I could dance in my seat without worrying about distracting those around me (Aurora kindly puts up with me).
I was very happy with Strange Magic. It felt me feeling happy and bubbly. It was the perfect way to end a great week. I was surprised with how much singing there was but the music fit and the songs were mostly familiar pop and rock songs which added a neat quirky twist. It was like Glee meets Disney.
Now for the review. Be warned, there may be SPOILERS ahead. Read on at your own risk. You have been warned.
Aurora Lee -The Imp was great and so was the songs. The best was animation. It was awesome. The graphics were amazing and looked beautiful. I haven't been amazed by CGI animation like that since I saw Final Fantasy.
Me -I completely agree about the animation. It was gorgeous. I had the same thought about the art quality and being as impressed with the CGI as I was watching Final Fantasy. It was so pretty.
I found the whole story to be enjoyable. There were neat storylines, enjoyable characters, and fun sing-and-dance-along music.
Less Than Good:
Aurora Lee -Mary-Ann and the Bog King fell in love after a very short sword fight.
Me -I also found the sudden romance a bit too quick, it fit the movie time line but still somewhat annoying. I didn't know all the songs, not being able to dance and sing along was a little sad in those moments (Aurora was very thankful we were the only two in the theater because I was dancing in my seat).
