Movie Decision

Disney's The Jungle Book

We'll be watching the 2016 remake of The Jungle Book on October 29 at 11:00 PM UTC-0 in the Bridge Movie Theatre. I'll do an announcement in The Bridge chatroom a few minutes or so ahead of time as well as keep you up-to-date if anything comes up.

But "wait a minute, Yuuki," you say, "aren't the top two movie suggestions tied? And you'd be correct! Which is why I'm happy to announce...

"But Yuuki," you say, "I don't have enough time in the day to watch two movies. I have a life!" Well, I've got you covered there. Similar to what we did with Guardians of the Galaxy and Big Hero 6 for our second Movie Night, there will be a showing for The Incredibles next month! A scheduling poll is already up and results will be tallied when we start Movie Night later this month.

Movie Suggestion: The Incredibles

1]

I'm sure everyone is familiar with this movie, but if you're not then it's a film by Pixar about retired super heroes. Considering it's made by Pixar means saying "it's great" is kind of redundant, but it's often considered one of Pixars best movies, which is high praise. Summary from Rotten Tomatoes:

Once one of the world's top masked crime fighters, Bob Parr--known to all as "Mr. Incredible"--fought evil and saved lives on a daily basis. But now fifteen years later, Bob and his wife--a famous superhero in her own right--have adopted civilian identities and retreated to the suburbs to live normal lives with their three kids. Now he's a clock-punching insurance claims adjuster fighting boredom and a bulging waistline. Itching to get back into action, Bob gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top-secret assignment.

Movie Suggestion: Captain America: Civil War

1]

It's been a year since the Avengers defeated Ultron and the superheroes of the world are starting to lose that rosy-eyed appeal. After an intervention gone wrong in Nigeria, the stage is set for a confrontation.

Steve believes that after the SHIELD debacle in Captain America: Winter Soldier, governments and huge shadowy agencies can't be trusted with the protection of the common man. Tony, on the other hand, fresh from his failure with the Ultron Intiative, believes that individuals including himself need to be put in check before their arrogance does more harm than good.

And as the superheroes of the world pick their sides, the infamous assassin, the Winter Soldier, is still at large...

    I've not seen it, and I doubt I'd make the movie night, but c'mon. It's October. It should be a scary movie. – Niro Sep 10 '16 at 18:04
  • This is a pretty good movie. – Invader Skoodge Sep 10 '16 at 20:56
  • I disagree, this movie was pretty weak, especially the ending. I don't know how it has such high marks on rotten tomatoes. – GodEmperorDune Sep 11 '16 at 18:32

Movie Suggestion: The Angry Birds Movie

1]

This is a dark horse pick, but it's personally one of my favorite movies of the year. Good animation, a strange plot, and undertones of issues such as immigration and western power dynamics will keep your interest throughout.

An island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red, a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck, and the volatile Bomb have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.
