Movie Review: RIO!

Hello Everyone!
I had to do a post today because I have been blogging for a month! So also in the spirit of the 2016 Olympics, I present to you:

This is a really fun movie! I know, I say that every time but I'm not sure what else to say. Anyway, This movie really wows you when it begins because it is a lovely scene that makes you smile and want to dance! It is the story of the last two blue macaws, (one CAN'T FLY), on earth chained together in (guess where), Rio De Janeiro! There are somethings that aren't really realistic (example [SPOILERS] when all the lights go out, how skinny the geese are, and how in the world can Pedro fly?) but it is want makes it funny. In animated/cartoon movies like this, always watch every ones EYES. They are quite "matching" in this movie.
Costumes: 5, let's just say that Rio is known for several things and scanty costumes are one of them. But most of the costumes are okay.
Script: 7 There are some weird jokes in here, but overall VERY funny! 
"Wow! You're actually communicating!"
"I did not get that at all."
Crew: 9, I don't know what they are like but, they did a great job!

Story: 10, this deserves a 10, one of my reasons was that after all that time Linda could let go. And... It is a great movie!
Overall Score: 8!
Thank you so much for reading! Let me know what YOU think! 



  1. Well it definitely looks interesting and it has Anne Hathaway, so..... I'm a big fan of Anne.

    1. Yeah, when I learned that she is in this movie, I said, "No way!"

  2. You didn't say much about music, it would be interesting to see what you think about it. I like the quotes you found, I would not have thought of them!

    1. Silly me! I always mean to put in what I think about the music but I forget! I'll put it in right away! Thank you for your feedback!
