Movie: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009)

It has been a great & rewarding Sunday.

* Attended church service at SIBKL, feels at home. Thanks for prayers. Next challenge, attend oncoming Sunday services, let's see how it goes. Also, it'd be good to attend cell group meetings to bond with the church members. Without bonding, it's seriously hard to stay and I'll either be dormant or church-hopping again...

* Lunch tweet-up at FullHouse, NZX with @redsheep @geminianeyes @MrG82 @spinzer, it's great to make friends with great new people. Twitter did and is doing a good job in bringing strangers together and the next thing you know, they're friends!

* 20-minute arcade "tour". I played an arcade game for 15-20 minutes! It's something like hitting a drum by following some Japanese music rhythm. My first time! OMG! :P

* Movie tweet-up at GSC, One Utama - Cloudy with a Chance of Meatball with the lunch gang, except @geminianeyes.


Honestly speaking and totally unexpected, I'm bewildered and convinced to give a 5/5 stars to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatball, a 2009 animated comedy, fantasy movie, written and produced by Phil Lord & Chris Miller, based on the book written by Judi & Ron Barrett.

What's the verdict?

1. Impressively colorful visuals with rich, smooth texture. I thought I'm watching it in 3D. 2D is good enough to get me smitten, wide-eyed, and glued to my seat throughout the whole 90 minutes. The animation and every single detail of the characters, including the different food items are so vivid and lively.

2.
This is a great, lighthearted comedy for both kids and adults with jokes and funny liners so good in taste and shape and are genuinely funny. A perfectly chosen cast helps to bring the movie into momentum. There are kiddie moments but for the young-at-hearts, believe me, you'll get cracked up and laugh for a whole 60 minutes or so.

3. Very educational and it boils down to this: How far would you believe in or sacrifice for your loved ones in order to stick to and realize your dreams and passions? Think about it. This is a very good movie to instill the importance of family values in the young ones.

4. There's so much food! Pizzas, burgers, pancakes, steaks, hot dogs, gummy bears, Jell-O (my favorite heartwarming scene. Awww...)

This is a very fun, lighthearted, valuable, and rewarding movie. Never have I felt so satisfied walking out of the cinema after watching an animated movie (apart from UP). Great family movie, great movie for movie-get-together, great movie for those who don't trust in what they can get from animated movies. Highly recommended.

I'd still say, go watch. You won't regret it. I promise this. I'll watch it again.
