Madagaskar is one of my favourite animated movies,  the laughs and drama were both at it’s peak. When the second one came out I was too afraid to watch it because it is one of those movies that reveal all of the funny parts in the commercial. I have the video game(game for family), so I  already know the storyline, and I also have the movie. I don’t know why I bought it when I never thought on watching it, but to this day I have never seen the entire movie, only bits and pieces. Also I heard from one of my best friends who I shared the love for the movie with, that it was not very funny. I do not want to watch the second movie because I am afraid that it will spoil the masterpiece of Madagaskar.

When I watched the commercial for Madagaskar 3: Europe‘s Most Wanted I was really exited to see it. Then again, I was exited when Madagaskar 2 Escape From Africa came out as well.

At least the animation is still at it’s best. Actually the animation quality in Madagaskar 3 looks better than the first one. When I talk about the animations in movie sequals, I am talking about the colours and shades that were used. Usually sequals to good movies that could be enjoyed for a lifetime, are reanimated so much that they look like they were done by completely different animators. Character’s clothing is made of different textures and brightness levels.  

This movie just might be better than the previous one because their t.v show was very entertaining and funny, when usually movies that get turned into t.v shows are almost pointless to even preview. The funny thing is, the television show for Madagaskar was created using the exact type of animation I described above. The characters were way brighter and the characters were more child -looking. Probobly to attract young viewers. Their t.v show probably helped them with the production of Madagaskar 3 a lot.

Also my hopes on this movie not being terrible, was the fact that the same 4 hilarious actors were staring in it. There is; Ben Stiller as Alex, Chris Rock as Marty, David Schwimmer as Melman (my favourite character), and Jada Pinkett Smith as Gloria.

This movie looks like it will be worth watching and I am not scared a bit to watch it.

Madagaskar 3 be ready.

Technology has been advancing at an alarming level the past few years, slowing down many companies income. Recently the Nintendo market has fallen drasticlly. Out of all the consoles available today, Nintendo is becoming the least popular. The rapidly increasing speed of mobile technology has caused Nintendo to fall behind in sales and popularity. Even the new 3DS was unable to compare against the rising amount of mobile sales. Nintendo needs to widen their hardware to mobile phones like super mario 64 on android phones, or a new warioware for tablets. This really disapoints me. I remember the days when Nintendo was the first game console to ever be released, and Mario, the Italian, mushroom eating, plumber was released onto television sets everywhere. It literally gave birth to all those video games that we see in stores today. When systems such as these are becoming more and more popular in dumps and dirty closets, it sorta disrespects Nintendo. In a wierd nerdy sorta way. I hope that Nintendo realizes their issues, and figures out a way to solve it. Also maybe the WiU will boost Nintendo’s sales up a notch, so that they don’t have to abandon their fans and leave their buissiness in dumpsters.
