Turbo My Son's Choice for a New Movie

Updated on May 4, 2015

That snail is fast but you don't have to be. Take your time while reading over the content and then feel free to leave a comment at the end.

For Christmas my son received the same present from mom and dad and the grandparents. Bummer on one side but sort of fun on another. You see the grandparents brought receipts for everything. So a few days later we went in and returned the one from the grandparents. In the good news the return line was empty. (By the time we left the store it was long.) Any ways we had cash in hand just waiting to spend as fast as possible. To make things even faster my son knew one thing he wanted with that cash. The new movie, Turbo! In fact he knew right were it was on the shelves. As you can tell by the picture he wanted the one that comes with the Pullback Racer. I know he has played with that more than watching the move. And that is saying something.

At this point he tends to watch the movie at least three to four times per week. Sometimes more than once in the same day. In fact if you were to just put the movie in and get past the previews my son will just let the music play and not start the movie. Its amazing how music can catch your attention. Its not so much the visuals as I will see him doing other things and just listening to the music play.


My Son's favorite scenes:

My son and I just watched the movie, again. This time I asked him to let me know what his favorite parts were. I knew one was “The Snail is Fast” for which there is a clip below. This one I knew from the first time we watched the movie together. The second scene is when Turbo gets his speed. Not to give away too much but this was during a racing scene where Turbo was in the engine of a street racing car. Sorry no clip to share on this one.

That Snail is Fast

Here we go with some videos related to the movie Turbo.

1) A trailer from the movie

2) The first snail race

Just in case the move is not enough for you here are a few things that are on my wish list that I thought you might also enjoy.

1) The soundtrack from the movie Turbo

2) A Turbo mouse pad

Have you ever put in a move and turned the sound off? Sure you can turn on the subtitles. But its just not the same. And the music to Turbo is a big part of what my son enjoys with this movie.

      We just stumbled upon this movie, and my son loves it. I like it, too. It has a good message. His favorite scene is the big wheel, but my favorite, is any scene where samuel L. jackson says anything. His dialog is awesome!

      I think this might be one of the first mainstream animated videos with music that serious bass heads can enjoy. Good job on your 150th lens! Congrats!
