I rate movies on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the worst, ten being the best, 5 being average. A great movie will usually garner an 8, having to be incredible to rate higher than that. A movie receiving at least a 6 is good. Anything under 5 means it's pretty bad.
“The True Story of Puss N’ Boots” 1/10
This is not the upcoming Shrek spinoff, but quite possibly the worst animated film I have ever seen. It was conveniently added to Redbox just in time to cash in on the popularity of the Antonio Banderas voiced character.
The film is very awkward, and hard to watch. The animation is horrible. The characters move like marionettes, and they all look very ugly. The movement of their mouths doesn’t even come close to matching the audio. Any secondary characters with multiples look exactly alike.
The voice actors are pathetic. The queen sounds drunk. The Ogre sounds constipated. The cat is voiced by William Shatner, creating the most annoying voice I’ve ever heard, and intermixing it with nonsensical sounds and stuttering. All of the voices are annoying, and the dialogue is terrible, absurd, and forced.
The singing if pathetic. The story is clichéd and forced. The action scenes are slow paced and stiff.
I’m shocked that someone purposely made a movie this poorly. Don’t ever waste your time watching this film.
Win Win 8/10: Touching, entertaining, and very well acted. Shows that imperfect people can be heroes in the lives they touch.
Thor 5/10: Better than I thought it would be, and more family friendly than most recent superhero films, but not overly interesting. Thor’s not really a strong enough character to carry a film.
Everything Must Go 7/10: Touching at times, humorous at times, and enjoyable always. Will Ferrell’s few forays into serious yet quirky films such as this, "Winter Passing", and "Stranger Than Fiction" actually outshine his brilliance in slapstick comedy.
Your Highness 5/10: Could have stood on it’s own as an interesting and enjoyable fantasy genre film, but is drug down by it’s attempt at low-brow humor. They accidentally made a good fantasy film, rather than a comedic spoof.
