Smurfs Take> Besides the fact that Bob Gale gets to continue his story from the movies it’s how perfect and seamless he has done it. I could honestly see a lot of this happening on the big screen, the characters are just what I would expect moving forward from the final moments of the third movie. It’s right in the soft spot of the heart for one of the most beloved movies of all time.

Video of the week
Sausage Party> When a sausage falls out of a grocery cart in the middle of the market, everything he knows about his life is called into question. He just wants to know where he’s from, and he’ll go on one of the raunchiest journeys with his group of new friends to find out. Of course, they all have to make their way back to the store shelves before the big Independence Day sale, so he doesn’t have much time.
Smurfs Take> This movie is wrong on so many levels and filled with jokes you don’t know if you should laugh or just turn away. It’s absolutely brilliant!
