We love a good movie, in our house, and we try to have family movie nights, with popcorn and treats, as often as we can sneak them in, to our busy schedule. We happen to be rather fond of movies with good music or ones with a musical theme, so of course the new movie SING is right up our street.
Dapper Koala Buster Moon presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. An eternal optimist, and a bit of a scoundrel, he loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he takes one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition. Five contestants emerge: a mouse, a timid elephant, a pig, a gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine.
I have to say we have LOVED watching this movie and we may now know ALL the words to the songs, and it’s really become a firm favourite. It’s the perfect movie for a family night in, or for the kids to enjoy, and combining a heartwarming story line with some fabulous songs, both cover versions, the originals and some new ones, is a real winner. The various story lines within the movie, and how things work out for each character, both the good and bad, makes it a lovely movie, and we sing along happily, and we each all have our own song we like best.
A little taster clip of some of the vocals for the movie. Tori Kelly was amazing. She’s Matthew’s favourite.
We don’t want to share any more, to spoil the movie for you if you haven’t seen it, but the good news is that Sing is being released on DVD, Blue Ray and Digital Download THIS WEEK and we really think you need to get your hands on a copy and watch it. We promise you will be singing along with it, like us, too…
Sing is available on Digital Download, Blu-ray™ and DVD from 22nd May, courtesy of Universal Pictures (UK).
