How cool it is to have dad like Mr. Peabody, not only smart but he is super awesome dad. He brings you to travel beyond space and time. He introduces you the history of the world in real time, meeting those who left history to human civilization like Leonardo Da Vinci, Marie Antoinette, George Washington and many many more. Oh! And he has a good taste of arts, music, he plays almost all type of musical instruments you name it. He is an amazing chef too ... The only thing is, he is a dog.
As usual, I am not going to tell you the story about this movie, you can click here to read about it and this is the trailer video for this movie.
We enjoy the movie so much. Me and my daughter love animation, especially cute animation like this one. The story is just fun to follow with. We love how the artist draw Florence with the beautiful Tuscany in the background too. We visited Leonardo's house and met Monalisa as well. We also learnt why people love to say "Let them eat the cake", through a short peek of French Revolution.
Basically this story to us tell how special the love relationship between dad and a son. It does not have to be a real son, but he can be your adopted son too, however the bonding is there. It is a mutual benefit, trust and respect. Sherman always says, "I love you Mr. Peabody", and Mr. Peabody always reserves his feeling toward Sherman and replied it as " I have a high regard of you as well". Man being man, they are holding their emotion always. At the end, the world is reversed, Sherman had grown up and proved that he could be in charge for himself, when Mr. Peabody said he loved Sherman, Sherman replied exactly the same. It is interesting to understand father and son relationship, indeed.
The second movie we watched is Tarzan.
It's a beautiful movie and drawing. The story line is very touching, if you are familiar with the story of Tarzan, there is nothing really new about it. Click here to read the synopsis and watch the trailer below. The only thing, the movement for the animation is not as smooth as the usual 3D animation movie, but the drawing is amazing. We love how the artist draw the forest, the waterfall and every detail of the trees in the forest as well as the animals.
What is so special about this movie is the adventure Tarzan took with Jane inside the hidden cave where the special element left over by the comet kept deep inside the jungle. The imagination of the flora and fauna are very imaginative. It is somehow primitive and yet fantasy like. You will enjoy this part so much.
So yeah those are our movie marathon today. We love to spend our fridate for movie. We are looking forward for Divergent and Saving Mr. Bang. The cinemas in Singapore will also play Hayao Miyazaki during this school holiday. So yeap, it seems a busy week ahead. Cheers all from Singapore.
