Why You Should Care About Home

Prime directive: get your kids hooked on sci-fi
Home is certainly silly stuff, but movies like this serve a very important purpose: to get younger children interested in exploring greater sci-fi offerings. And make a lot of money doing it.

Dreamworks Animation is the next best thing to Pixar
Pixar may be the best animation studio in business today, but Dreamworks Animation is a (somewhat) close second. They’ve released a lot of good stuff–Shrek, Shrek 2, How to Train Your Dragon, Megamind, Monsters Vs. Aliens, and Madagascar, to name only a few. Yeah, they’ve given us garbage in the past (Shrek 3 and 4, Shark Tale), but even Pixar made Cars 2. Nobody’s perfect.

Did I mention they’re the studio behind Monsters Vs. Aliens?
I did, yeah. And they are. It’s one of the most underrated B-movie parodies of all time. If Home is half as funny, then it’ll probably worth the price of admission (multiplied by how many kids you have).

Tim Johnson is the guy who brought us Antz
Remember Antz, the crazy Woody Allen film from 1998 about, well, ants? Yeah, Johnson directed that. He also made Over The Hedge, a completely nutty take on the famous comic strip. This guy clearly knows his funnies.
