Angry Birds movie

I’m still wondering how they’re going to extend the “plot” of the games into an hour and a half or more.

Angry Birds is overated, and I believe this news pushes that further to being a fact.

I really hope that the movie doesn’t include the characters kamikaze-catapulting themselves against castles filled with swine at any part of it. I do not see that kind of suspension of disbelief working for a movie.

Does this shitty, repetitive, overrated, piece a’ shit casual game really need a movie ?

And the “Why do they support the apocalypse? End of the world harr harr!” reactions are already flooding in. Doesn’t suprise me really, it is always to be expected with this stuff, you should’ve seen Tumblr.

I’m giving this a wait and see. It’s still in production and we can’t give a clear opinion yet. And overrated or not, the games are still a fun timekiller at random occasions. Can’t personally figure out how something like that can work out in a movie though, but we had vaguer subjects which gave better results. I’m guessing it will follow the standard birds needing to get their eggs from the pigs, but how it’ll work out is a mystery.

This…
Instead of getting all worked up about it, wait. Even If it’s the worst movie ever, no one is making you see it.

Oh boy they are remaking Birdemic, the greatest film of all time.

Anyways, Angry Birds will most likely become irrelevant by 2016, I highly doubt that they can innovate angry birds to make it enjoyable for that long. The best versions in my opinion were space and the original because they had interesting mechanics, now they have scaled back the difficulty to the point where the puzzles solve themselves (I have not played the game since the original but it does not take long to hear about these things). This movie will be a major flop by the time it come out unless Angry Birds is deeply entrenched in the youth, that it will be able to overcome the production costs.

Sorry for double posting but I just thought that the only thing that could redeem this movie is if Nicolas Cage stared in this movie.

“Killing me will not bring back your damn eggs!”

I’m more curious than anything else.

I want to know how you write an entire movie plot from: “Birds commit suicide by colliding selves against solid structures and pigs”

Oh look, I found a copy of the screenplay!

“Birds are angry! Birds smash stuff! Get revenge on piggies!”

Deep.

…While I don’t have a problem with the Angry Birds games (maybe because I haven’t even played them to give a good opinion), I’m really getting tired of all this commercialism.

While I’m glad that there’s a finnish product that has become wildly popular around the world since Nokia, I still cannot help but to cringe every time every time I see and/or hear of new they try to sell with the title.

And if you think all the merchandise with the Angry Birds title is bad wherever you live, you should be happy that you don’t live here in Finland. All the stores have tons of stuff with the title slapped into them, from candies, through skin products, to plushies and electronics.

I think Rovio has been taking one too many lessons from KISS.

I dunno…it’s gonna be family-friendly and animated. These types of movies can really do well at the box office.

There is no shittier, more cancerous idea than that of an Angry Birds movie. Congratulations, you fucks at Rovio, you’ve crushed what was left of my soul.

You bet it is!
Get it? Because it’s a bomb? Yeah…
I would be thoroughly impressed if they managed to get a full plot out of a 15 minute mini-game, regardless of how good it is.

I think that spending money on making a movie out of this game is a laughably bad idea, but at the same time I’m a bit intrigued about where they’re going to go with it.

There once was a time, pigs and birds were in peace. Until the green dictator with a hunger more for more than vegetables. He wanted eggs. Now a war has started. The Birds have been slaughter, they are left with only one thing: A Catapult.
Follow the adventures of the Angriest Birds around.
Now they are to angry to be held on your phone.
Angry Birds, THE MOVIE 3D.
