I'm so happy that I got to see The Secret Life Of Pets today! I always wonder what my dog goes when I'm not around. So, without further ado, the review!
But first, I always list the coming attractions! New to the series, at the end of the list I will tell you guys if you should come early for the trailers or not.
1- Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life- The movie looked like a crazy rip-off of my movie Different, but the main character has no problems and the principal is worse. I'll pass.
2- Monster Trucks- It was the same trailer that was shown at Finding Dory (link to the review here). I still think it will get a 2% on Rotten Tomatoes. Bye!
3- Storks- Again, a repeat from Finding Dory. The movie looks good, but it's made by the same guys who made the Lego movie (worst movie ever!), so I'll watch it on KissCartoon if the next trailer's awesome. If the next trailer is just eh, then I'll just wait for it to come out on Netflix.
4- Kubo And The Two Strings- Yet another Finding Dory repeat. It still looks boring. (Prays that the trailer won't be shown in front of Ice Age 5)
5- Trolls- YAY NOT A REPEAT YAY! And it's awesome! From the moment I heard the movie's theme song, "Can't Stop The Feeling!", I knew this was going to be good.
6- Sing- WAHOO! YAY! YAY! YAY! HYPE TRAIN COMING THROUGH! TOOT-TOOT! LEAK IT KISSCARTOON!
Short- Mower Minions- I loved the short! It was awesome!
And that, my friends, is the end of the previews.
Should you come early for the previews: No! Well, you will end up seeing the last two previews and the short if you don't come early, which were good ones. Unless you haven't seen Finding Dory yet. Then come early.
Now, the actual movie!
What I loved: I loved all of the animals because all of them reminded me of my Snickerdoodle. I also loved the beginning with all of the dogs doing random stuff.
What I liked: I liked the scenery. Most of you guys might overlook that stuff, but I know it would take forever to put all of that detail into it.
What was so-so: The fact that it was easy to guess the ending. Also, this is a repeat from my Zootopia review (link right here), but there is one aspect that wasn't in the actual movie that I didn't like. The disinformed parents who decided to take a 2 year old to a PG-rated movie! I noticed at least 2 toddlers leave the theater early and a 5 year old boy behind me crying tears of fear.
What I disliked: Nothing
What I strongly disliked: Nothing
Rating- 8 stars out of 10 (Really good)
Should you see it in theaters or wait?: See it in theaters
Should you buy or rent it?: Rent it. I enjoyed the movie, but it's one of those movies where you only watch it once or twice.
Conclusion: If I named the film, I would name it Dog Story. Yes, like Toy Story.
AMERICAN GIRL TRIVIA: The majority of the American Girl movies have been filmed in Canada. The only movie to be filmed fully in America was Chrissa Stands Strong.
COMMENT DISCUSSION QUESTION: Be a dog for a day or be a doll for a day?
MY ANSWER: Dog all the way.
WHAT'S TO COME ON AGDN: Leaks, leaks and more leaks! Plus, the reveal of Sydney's Drastic Measure to leak GOTY 2017!
