Review: Rio

When Blu, a domesticated macaw from small-town Minnesota, meets the fiercely independent Jewel, he takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with this bird of his dreams.

Pixar really never disappoints, after seeing the trailer for this movie I really wanted to see a bunch of funny colorful birds. Pixar really did an amazing job with the actor line up in this movie, the music was amazing and as it turns out Will.I.Am is one of the characters and you can’t help but love the music. Its a simple story yet very funny, and George Lopez is also one of the birds, a great ensemble of performers in this animation. I thought that the MoC wouldn’t cut a cartoon, or they would leave this alone, its birds, but I was wrong and it got cut at the most annoying moments but its still a movie to enjoy.

The London Zoo

For a while I have been wanting to go to the Zoo in London, even in San Diego if I had a chance. I want to see a bunch of funny animals roaming about and taking a look at these amazing creatures. And I have recently had the urge to see Penguins, and I know they have at the London Zoo.


I haven’t been to London Zoo for at least 5 to 8 years, I honestly can’t remember the last time I was there but I was really excited to go. Being winter I didn’t have high expectations but I had a lot of fun walking around seeing all these funny animals that couldn’t give a damn that I was staring at them, and some would stare back and walk up to me like those pink birds that I don’t even know what they were but they seemed friendly and walked funny. The owls were sound asleep when I got over to their section but one opened his eyes when I snapping pictures and looked really annoyed, owls really look like they are full of wisdom and have something smart to say, but I left them alone to continue with their sleep.

The penguins seemed to be having a lot of fun together and seagulls were annoying them and keep diving into the water. Some would swim closer to me because I was the only person there. The funniest bird I have seen yet is this furry looking chicken, I walked over to the kids section and some animals roam about like lamas, and I saw this chicken running around between peoples legs and he is big and very furry, strange chicken.

I kept on walking around to the different sections but not everything was open because it was winter but I loved it, London Zoo was a fun visit with all these animals. I especially enjoyed the parakeet that was annoyed at me and squawked a few times, makes me want a pet parakeet, he just looked so colorful and I bet would be an entertaining companion.
