FREE BIRDS Blu-ray Review

FREE BIRDS Blu-ray Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Feb 07, 2014
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Jake, Reggie and the gang are coming home on Blu-ray + DVD! Read Kidzworld's review of FREE BIRDS of the hilarious Blu-ray adventure!!

From the Academy Award®-Winning producer of Shrek comes a hilarious animated adventure FREE BIRDS about two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks who travel back in time in order to keep their species off the Thanksgiving menu. Featuring an all-star voice cast, including Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson and Amy Poehler, Free Birds is loaded with laughs and stuffed with fun for the whole family!

The Bottom Line

Free Birds didn't exactly make a killing at the box office and it wasn't a hit with most major critics, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth a watch at home - who doesn't want to experience Thanksgiving a little early (or a lot early, in this case.) One great reason to appreciate this film is the fantastic animation, and another reason is the great voice cast (Amy Poehler and Owen Wilson as BFF turkeys, and Woody Harrelson.) In fact, we would love to see a live-action film featuring Amy and Owen bantering with each other. There are a lot of different things happening in the plot of Free Birds, so watching it at home actually guarantees that you'll be able to catch everything that's going on.

The animation is visually pleasing and precise, and Free Birds is a great effort as the first feature length animated film by Reel FX, an we hope to see more from them in the future - Pixar and Disney could use the competition! The DVD + Blu-Ray comes packed with fun extras that take you behind the scenes and show you just how the animation came to life.

Free Birds is a fun buddy adventure caper that's great for a family movie night, especially if you have younger siblings involved.

Hi there! I am Rose, (If you have somehow not seen me around so far) an avid writer and roleplayer here on KW. I've recently realized that I love critique. It's one of my favorite things to do and receive. And not so recently, I realized there's a lot of OCs that need improvement out there.  Like a lot. It's kind of scary. So I've decided to start reviewing these OCs, both the good and the bad. But as always, I have some standards.  I will review OCS from these fandoms: Dr. Who Undertale Danganronpa RWBY  Soul Eater Warrior Cats Hunger Games Divergent Harry Potter Vocaloid Black Butler MLP (Yes I am a bit of a closet brony shh don't tell anyone) Ava's Demon (Although I doubt anyone knows what this is) Percy Jackson Adventure Time Steven Universe Gravity Falls 99% of Disney Attack On Titan Touhou Avatar (The four elements and stuff not the weird blue people.) Pokemans Original Works Ask me if I review anything that isnt on this list. But before people start freaking out, I do not review LOTR, Supernatural, Narnia, or Sherlock.  Please put your character in an RP style form including name, personality, backstory, and any fandom specific info. If your character is in one of the fandoms listed go ahead and post right away. I will respond ASAP with how you can improve your OC and a general rating. Be prepared for criticism. Well, go ahead and start posting your OCs!

Disney is good in my opinion but I feel like each time I watch a disney movie that it just don't want to make me watch it again. Like when I was younger I would watch my favorite disney movie a billion times but now I can barely make it through watching the same movie/episode twice.
