Discuss the franchise here. the movies, Penguins of, or whatever.

And no Circus Afro talk, y'all.

The Penguins show is the only good thing to come out of this franchise.

If it weren't for Dreamworks, this would be the kind of movie they'd sell for a couple dollars at shady DVD stores next to Ratatoing and Kiara the Brave.

Only saw the first movie and a couple episodes of the Penguins show. Thought both were absolutely rancid.

Really though, I have seen none of the movies and one episode of the show. I have no real opinion on this franchise, but if it does well with the kids, why argue with its success?

I'm still of the opinion that I want to get my future kids actually good movies to watch instead of sit them down to see Chris Rock play a zebra.

I don't argue it's success, I just question what is enjoyable about it.

I've seen the first two movies, and a few episodes of the show.

First movie was nothing spectacular, VERY obnoxious, but overall not very memorable at all. Second movie was downright awful. Haven't seen the third (and have no intention of doing so). The series is actually okay, but I don't love it. It's kinda funny, and the Penguins always were the best parts of the movies, so it's nice that they have their own series... but it's not great. Still too obnoxious, as is the general theme of the series it would seem, and the CGI still looks ugly and cheap.

So yeah, that's that.

Well my plan is to read Lovecraft to my children as their bedtime stories and introduce them to the world of classic cinema and literature at a young age.

If my future daughter cannot name every single one of the Doctor's companions by the time she turns 10, I will be a sad future dad.

You might as well just read them Dante for a bedtime story.  :D
