Home - out in theaters in March. "When Earth is taken over by the overly confident Boov, an alien race in search of a new place to call home, all humans are promptly relocated while all Boov get busy reorganizing the planet. But when one resourceful girl, Tip, manages to avoid capture, she finds herself the accidental accomplice of a banished Boov named Oh. The two fugitives realize there's a lot more at stake than intergalactic relations as they embark on the road trip of a lifetime."
It looks cute and I'm sure that the kids will have fun with it. They seemed to like the trailer.
Strange Magic - out tomorrow. "'Strange Magic,' a new animated film, is a madcap fairy tale musical inspired by "A Midsummer Night's Dream." Popular songs from the past six decades help tell the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion."
It's a story by George Lucas, which could go either way. Of course, I also have heard nothing about this film and it opens tomorrow. Not an auspicious sign. The director says that he was inspired by Midsummer Night's Dream and Labyrinth. The girlchild will love the kick-butt fairy. It's worth at least a rental, I think.
Alien Outpost - out January 30. "A documentary crew follows an elite unit of soldiers in the wake of an alien invasion."
I will have to watch this, my inner action-junkie commands it, and with luck Netflix will have it by summer.
