We all know how Star Wars will be dominating media and most conversations for a long while to come. And yet, there are those that simply don’t feel the appeal for the franchise.
It’s ok, and thinking about you, we gathered together a few movie alternatives for a while. And trust me: you’ll be quite alone and peaceful in the movies, when massive hordes of fans gather in Star Wars rooms. These are alternatives for those who either can’t or don’t want Star Wars.
The new Poehler/Fey adventure actually seems very interesting. We got used to watching Fey as a strict woman (Lemon) in 30 Rock and Poehler as the goofy/awesome Leslie Knope (remember #Knope2012?!) and we watched the duo sort of follow in this structure of characters in many works. But this time, the dynamic duo comes in the opposite position! Smells like another #Hollywood twist just to get attention, right? But when you think about it… doesn’t it also sort of draw you in?
The movie is about the Ellis sisters. Katie (Fey) and Maura (Poehler) are each going through a tough patch and decide to throw a last party in their childhood house before their parents sell the house. Simple plot but with a great cast, including Maya Rudolph, Dianne Wiest, Ike Barinholtz, John Leguizamo, John Cena, James Brolin; directed by Jason Moore and written by Paula Pell. So, what’s not to like?
"Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip"
Alvin and his friends are back to the big screen. Directed by Walt Becker and written by Adam Sztykiel with Randi Mayem Singer, this movie is a solid bet for comedy movie goers, as well as many families who decide on a movie trip.
The plot is about the chipmunks “finding out” that Dave plans to propose to his girlfriend and cast the chipmunks out of his life as soon as possible. So, they go on a road trip to stop this from happening in just three days, getting over a long road trip.
The cast is almost the same, with the exception that Amy Poehler is not voicing Eleanor Miller this time, being replaced by Kaley Cuoco – which can be very cool!
Competition against The Force Awakens?
Actually not! These movies are meant for different targeted audiences, even if a person can enjoy all of them.
Final advice is: if you did not get to go on The Force Awakens just in the first week, or just don’t want to go, you’ll do great with both these options! #News
