Hello everybody, for today’s somewhat new show, we have the animated comedy Home.
DIRECTED: Tim Johnson
STARRING: Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin
GENRE: Family, Animation
COUNTRY: United States
When Oh, a loveable misfit from another planet, lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own people, he forms an unlikely friendship with an adventurous girl named Tip who is on a quest of her own. Through a series of comic adventures with Tip, Oh comes to understand that being different and making mistakes is all part of being human. And while he changes her planet and she changes his world, they discover the true meaning of the word HOME.
I don’t normally watch family movies, as they are definitely not in my wheel house, but I had to at least give Home a try for its ridiculous voice acting cast. I mean come on, Jim Parsons, Rihanna, and Steve Martin? I do also want to point out some absolutely decent direction from Tim Johnson and the writing team as they try their best to keep the pacing fluid and on track. They just weren’t able to nail it completely, as that feeling of deja vu was always there.
It is obvious that there are plenty of other films just like Home, but what can you do? There are only a handful of types of movies you can make under the sun. That feeling of deja vu I mentioned above is the main drawback for Home, as it just didn’t stand out to me like it should have. Let’s just say, there my be no place like home but there are plenty of places like Home.
- Voice acting variety.
- Solid directing attempt.
- Deja vu.
- Lacks unique elements.
SCORE: 6.0 / 10
