THE CHIPMUNKS ARE COMING BACK!
In recent news, it was announced that "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel" was so much of a hit that 20th Century Fox has decided to make another film. This time it's going to be in 3-D. Oh boy. Now before I go on, I will say this. What the heck is wrong with society? I mean seriously. "Astroboy" didn't exactly have the best story out there, but it was a heck of a lot better than "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel", yet it didn't even make half the money this over hyped kiddie flick made. Seriously, I sometimes wonder if I'm watching the exact same films as the rest of the world. To be quite honest, the whole situation sickens me. For if "Alvin and the Chipmunks" and "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel" made over seven hundred and ninety million dollars combined, then I have to ask you folks that liked it......why? Why did you like this movie? Was it really that good to warrant another sequel?
Seriously, parents had the option of taking their kids to see films like "Ponyo", "Astroboy", "Fantastic Mr. Fox", "Up", "Princess and the Frog", and many others last year. Yet this movie, "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel" is the film they chose to take their kids to? Seriously, the previous other films I just mentioned are way better than that movie, but sadly they didn't get the recognition they deserved. Like I said, the whole thing just sickens me to be honest. However, I will digress.
As of right now, there's very little information confirmed about the movie, at this time. Other than the fact, it's scheduled to be released December 16, 2011, in 3-D style format.
Normally, I'd go over how well this film will do both economically and critically, but let's face it. If the last film proved anything, you don't need to make a good movie to be successful. Just make the chipmunks cute as heck, and the kiddies will surely drag their parents yet again to see the Chipmunks.
