Okay. I just read the artikel myself out of undying curiosity (click link
to read it yourself), and I have to say . . . I'm laughing my tail feathers off. This is what I would say if I had the opportunity to talk to this guy.
Ms, Inkoo Kang,
Your "review"—if anda can call it that—on the upcoming Penguins of Madagascar
movie is laughable. This so-called review delves too much into your interpretation of everything about the movie that was wrong, give atau take that one statement about almost enjoying that one chase scene. If anda wanted to give a proper review, anda should've first diberikan much lebih information on how the movie could've been improved and WHY the points anda mentioned were wrong, rather than just stating WHAT was wrong. anda want to talk big words and over-analyzing faults? Try this on, Ms. Inkoo Kang.
anda have focused too much on the film's faults, giving only one side to your argument. To provide a solid and sound argument, one must point out why the other side to the argument is wrong. Allow me to demonstrate.
anda claim the penguins are "unfunny, unmoving, and uninspired," but anda never explained why anda think so. I'll have anda know many think the penguins are funny at least at times. Whether it's a one-liner ("We killed 'em and ate their livers.") atau it's just an action (Come on, the penguins playing at the train controls in the third film was a little funny. Just a little.), there's at least one thing the penguins have done to make someone laugh. Even if they haven't for you, doesn't mean they're necessarily "unfunny." anda just have a different sense of humor, I presume.
As far as "unmoving," I admit the penguins haven't had many "moving" moments in the "Madagascar" trilogy. However, as far as the trailers go, anda have to admit, Skipper bringing the young hatchling (Private) into his brotherhood was just a little moving. Of course, I wouldn't know this until I watched the movie, especially since anda didn't explain why anda felt it was unmoving yourself.
"Uninspired"? Do anda know not the meaning? Inspired; adjective: aroused, animated, atau imbued with the spirit to do something, oleh atau as if oleh supernatural atau divine influence (dictionary.reference.com). What makes anda think the movie is uninspired? I'm thinking it might be inspired to, I don't know, make people laugh. There's probably some better message in the movie as well, since, from what I've seen from DreamWorks, there always is if anda think hard enough. I have yet to figure out what it is myself, since I obviously haven't seen it, but I'm sure I can come up with something. My guess is that it'd be along the lines of brotherhood atau something, but I don't know yet.
Speaking of, anda say the film has a "distinct lack of purpose." Which film do anda think has a purpose? It would have been absolutely fantastic for anda to have diberikan us some examples for why anda believe the movie has no purpose (you have a right to uphold your opinion, but anda have to support it if anda want others to agree with you). Furthermore, what would've diberikan the movie purpose for you? Your thoughts on that would've been nice. anda also mentioned that the movie "caters to an audience that doesn't exist" because of the references not many people would get. How would anda know that? My best friend is a fan of a tampil I've never even heard of until he told me he liked it. How do anda know no one will understand those references? While many people will not, it still brings a smile to the face of those who would get that reference. Additionally, the movie may still bring a smile to the face of the unknowing "eight-year-olds" because I would imagine it still has funny moments. Even if they don't get a reference, doesn't mean they won't find it funny (I've found references funny without fully understanding them. I know I'm not the only one). I realize I'm ignorant to if these references will be funny atau not, but then again, not everyone has the same sense of humor as I.
anda berkata that there "isn't much to the film's story, yet it's stuffed to the gills with plot." If there's one thing I've noticed about DreamWork's films, it's that it's never just a story. The "Madagascar" trilogy relays the message that halaman awal isn't where anda are, but who you're with. "Shrek" is a story about acceptance, correlating to the idea that everyone's different, and that's okay, and anda have to accept yourself and others to truly be happy. "Kung Fu Panda" sends a message in that to accomplish anything, anda have to first believe in yourself ("There is no secret ingredient"). It all starts with you. Even if this movie is an exception to this idea, it would be really awesome if anda would've explained why anda feel that way.
anda mentioned that Dave's character is basically ruined because of his humor. Last time I checked, audiences cinta a villain with a little humorous side. A villain that's too dark wouldn't appeal to younger audiences anyway (ooh, that reminds me of your "point" made earlier. hm . . .).
First and foremost about your thoughts on North Wind, it's a SEAL, not an OTTER. If anda don't know the facts before anda propose an argument, then you've basically ruined any chance of gaining support because people will believe anda have no idea what you're talking about. Second, what makes anda think Eva's only purpose is to be sexy? How do anda know they're not also relaying the idea that women can be intelligent as well? Not to mention that from what I've seen in the trailers, Kowalski is the only one falling for her. anda could've at least explained why it seemed that way to you.
The following paragraph is merely just my opinion of your argument about Classified, and has nothing to do about how anda presented it. I must say, I do partially agree with your argument about the pompous Agent Classified, but I think it's pretty awesome that Skipper has someone in his same covert classification to be compared to, causing a humorous clash between the duo. And I believe he wants a little lebih than just "taking the credit." How do anda know he just doesn't want binatang to be safe? How do anda know he doesn't want some credit because he feels as though he needs the support from his team? Meaning, if he doesn't seem as though he made a success conceived with his help, he won't seem as important, and North Wind will see him as a failure? You'd be surprised what insecurity can drive someone to do. Of course, that is only my opinion, and I would not know until I watched the movie to make my own interpretation.
I have no problem if anda like the movie atau not. But if you're going to post a review for the whole world to see, DO IT RIGHT.
Now, did anda see how I presented my counter-argument? I used examples from the trailers, and even other film to present my case. I also mentioned your side of the argument to help tampil a contrast between my and your opinion, as to allow my readers to make up their own minds, rather than present one side and BOMBARD them with my opinion, presenting it as if it were solid fact. Your very vague descriptions of your opinions don't exactly tell anyone why they shouldn't watch it. All I see is, "Don't watch it because it's bad." If anda would've just explained why
it's bad, then anda would've done just fine, and I wouldn't have berkata a word.
Lots of love, peacebaby7
To the fanguins, the main reason I wrote this is to make those who found the "review" unsettling realize how overly-critical this artikel was. Based on the few komentar on her review, I see I'm not the only one who feels that her review could've been a lot better. I was not judging the fact that she didn't like the movie, but rather that she just needs to put lebih thought into her reviews. Your thoughts on my thoughts on her thoughts?
