The Madagascar Penguins Preview

Everyone’s favorite Madagascar penguins are sliding onto the small screen in their very own TV show! King Julien and his wacky lemur friends, Maurice and Mort along for the ride, and they make life for the Penguins a total zoo! Check out the premier on Saturday March 28th at 9:30 PM (ET/PT), right after the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.


From Big Screen to Small

The original gang from Madagascar is staying in Africa a little longer, so it’s up to the Penguins to rule the roast at the Central Park zoo. Sacha Baron Cohen voiced King Julien in the two Madagascar movies, but he’s not back for the show. Lucky for us, Nickelodeon did a great job finding another voice actor who sounds just like SBC—and his jokes are just as kooky!


Full Force Flippers

Skipper is the fearless leader of the militaristic pack of penguins, but his bravado sometimes leads Kawasaki, Rico and Private into some obnoxious adventures outside the zoo—like in one of the first episodes, Launchtime, when Skipper decides the only way to get away from some unwanted houseguests is to make a rocket ship and fly to the moon! Once there, the penguins meet a moon cat who teaches Skipper an important lesson.


Meet Marlene

The Haunted Habitat episode introduces a new, sassy character into the mix—Marlene is a chatty otter who was raised in Northern California’s Monterey Bay Aquarium. The California girl makes a sunny addition to the New York zoo crew, but she flits between alliances—sometimes she pals around with the Penguins and sometimes she monkeys around with King Julien and co.


Talented Team

The executive producers, Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, also created the hit animated series Kim Possible—so you know you’re in store for some great visuals, solid storytelling and action-packed adventures mixed with biting, sarcastic humor. The duo also worked on the heartwarming live action movie, Hotel for Dogs, which stars Emma Roberts.

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
