Heya guys, Karlamon here. I wanted to tell you about this movie that practically amazed me the minute I started, and provided me with the most heartwarming moments I've ever experienced in film. I am of course talking about the family classic The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure
This is an adventure unlike any other where the three Oogieloves (think of Teletubbies mixed with Tweenies) have to rescue five balloons lost by J. Edgar the vacuum cleaner, and bring them back in time for their pillow friend's birthday party. For something fairly vague on premise, the terrific execution makes this journey incredibly intense, funny, and tearjerking with thought-provoking themes that grown-ups like me can admire, as well as being an professional interoperation of the story of The Three Kings.
And then there are the characters, especially the Oogieloves which consist of Goobie the green smart one, Zoozie the animal-loving girl, and Toofie the adventure-seeker. Not only are their costumes admirable at Jim Henson-quality, but they are so full of personality, spouting out witty lines, have great interactions with themselves and the people they meet, and would go through a lot of development in the process. Also, Expect some awesome appearances from big actors like Cloris Leachman, Chazz Palminteri, and Mr. Clipboard himself Christopher Lloyd, where they participate with the Oogieloves in fun musical numbers like "Polkadotty Shake your Body", "March and Moo", and "Jump, Step, Clap". Theses are songs that even Disney would be proud of, and I have no idea how Frozen 2 will top those.
Many movies have touched me deeply, but this creation of genius is among the greatest things I have ever experienced, and has made me reconsider how I view cinema. This is an interactive masterpiece that I recommend for everyone to go and experience. And similar to classics like Balto and The Iron Giant, The Oogieloves was a box-office failure, but is bound to develop a strong cult following that will remember this movie for decades, and I'm proud to be part of this great fan base. Check it out, and even witness the generation-defining quote of "Goofy Toofie pick up your pants!" Rating:
