Mars Needs Moms in Disney Digital 3D Movie Reviews
User reviews on Mars Needs Moms in Disney Digital 3D
I read many discouraging reviews before I saw the
movie--yet it exceeded my expectations some. I get male
reviewers complaints--it is not usual action-only with impossible bind or conflict fare meant get get their main (male) demographic in. But I took three boys and they really liked it. (I got some extra hugs and kisses at bedtime after--that alone was worth the ticket prices. I think this is a good movie for family members who already value each other and so, we understand THAT LOVE THING the characters learn
about together. It is a relief to have a movie GET IT too.
More, everyone in my theater cheered and
clapped at the end. This will be a keeper on DVD. PS If we want them to flourish we must give new technologies a chance to get the
the kinks worked out before we pile on the pioneers
willing to be the ones to do that risky ground
breaking work. Even talky and color filming took a while
to reach its peak performance and for audiences to adjust.
I think the creepy feeling in the movie was intentional
and smoothed out to a warmer feel--as did the characters.
Creepy. That's the word that keeps going through my mind when I think of Mars Needs Moms. I am not a fan of the motion-capture technology that this movie employs, and it clouds everything I think about this movie. Not that I would have liked it anyway.
On Mars, kids are raised by robots. One Earth mom is brought to Mars so that her motherly instincts can be put into the bots. 9-year old Milo's mom is the one taken, and he goes to Mars to get her back. Wait, did I say 9-year old? Did I mention the 9-year old was played by Seth Green, who is a month older than I am, and I'm nowhere near 9.
And that's the main problem. This movie is all about approximations. The script takes concepts, jokes and characters that worked in other movies and plops them down here in a jumble that doesn't work at all. And then there's the animation. It makes me shudder every time I think about it. It's just creepy. Film is a visual medium, and if you can't get paste what the film looks like, what's the point of seeing it in the first place?
I’m always a fan of animated films. They always look so cool and usually have a good message associated with them. This movie is no different and I very much enjoyed it. Mars Needs Moms is directed by Simon Wells and animated by some of the same animators that helped make Polar Express as visually awesome as it was. This film was also made in 3D, which added that much more coolness to the visuals. Mars Needs Moms was heart warming and uplifting. It was fun to watch and I can imagine entire families enjoying it. It was a light-hearted movie since there were no underlying meaning behind the film, basically Mars needed moms. The dead simple premise makes it easy for kids any age to watch. The movie was also good for grownups because there are several references the movie makes to other older films. Overall I enjoyed this movie and would suggest it to others.
Mars Needs Moms is an animated film about, well, the planet Mars that needs moms. Directed by Simon Wells and based off of a cartoonist’s kids morality tale, the movie is made for kids. The problem with the film is that it really had no soul. Even with the spectacular 3D graphics and colors the movie just felt like it was lacking. As I said, the movie really did have great graphics with some of the same people who made Polar Express, which was amazing visually. The movie had some cute moments and some funny moments as well. The characters were likable and I can see kids relating to them. The story also had many good morals that it taught, which was a nice thing to see nowadays. After seeing Rango recently and PIxar films in the past, it’s hard to fully enjoy animated films that aren’t on the same level. This is a great movie for a family to go see to spend an evening but I don’t think it will be winning any awards.
