Pixies full movie review - Awful but young kids will enjoy it
I don't know where to begin, lets just start off by saying the movie is awful, low budget (like SUPER LOW BUDGET), but kids will enjoy it because the main character gets hurt a lot (much like looney toons style comedy).
The Dialog, was very meek and boring, characters just seems to randomly emotionlessly talk to each other and blank stare with frequent pauses between sentences that ruined the flow of any conversation.
This is a movie about vengeance, not a particularly good story to tell kids. Joe the main character is cursed by Pixies because he missed garbage day and decided to throw his garbage into a river. He literally missed the garbage truck by about 3 seconds, and the truck didn't stop to pick up garbage on any of the other dozen neighboring houses, it literally just stops at Joe's house, sees there's no garbage, and drives off and around the block randomly. Kay.
So Joe throws his garbage into a river and squashes the Pixie kings son, and the pixie king, completely emotionlessly tells a story while his son may or may not die about how pixies will curse people who do them wrong. Kay.
So a these pixes now do stuff like drop books on him or mess with his household appliances, make him slip and fall, etc. but none of it really makes any sense. Like for example, they set off a belt sander at his work. Its not plugged in or anything, you can see the cord dangle along as it races on the floor. It somehow wraps around Joe's leg and drags him all around his shop, where he crashes into things and tires somehow fall on his head, and the shop explodes, but hes okay.
There's a part in the story where he captures a pixie, and puts a glass over top of him to trap him and leaves him there for the day. No matter what this pixie does, he cant move the glass, neither can his friends, because apparently it weights a million pounds to them. Not 20 minutes prior to this scene, we witness two pixies pick up a freaking manhole cover and move it in half a second so Joe falls down it. Kay.
Its just awfully written, awfully scripted and animated, everything is just so bland and random, any parent watching it with their kids will be shaking their head at it.
The kids however, if they're like 4 or 5, will enjoy it, because they think its hilarious when Joe gets hurt, which is kind of the wrong message to be sending here.
I don't know how this movie is rated 6/10. There's nothing here but crap.
