Spies in Disguise: Best 2019 Christmas Movies

This Christmas, Fox and Blue Sky Studio released Spies in Disguise, directed by Nick Bruno. A fun, adorable, entertaining and action-packed movie, this deserves a warm gift for children and families in this December.
The subject of spies was not new from the James Bond series, Jason Bourne to Kingsman. Even cartoons, the audience is familiar with Totally Spies! or Kim Possible. Spies in Disguise is like a mixture of two elements: cartoon and protagonist who is the elegant spy guy. At first, the audience will think this is just an animated version of James Bond. However, Spies in Disguise does not follow the familiar motif we often see. Instead, the film goes towards pure entertainment, fun and hit the audience is children. And thanks to the understanding of the direction and audience itself, the film has brought extremely refreshing moments for the audience.


The content of Spies in Disguise is inspired by the short animated film Pigeon: Impossible by screenwriter – animator Lucas Martell. Pigeon: Impossible, although only 5 minutes, took 5 years to implement. The film is about a pigeon holding the “nuclear suitcase” of the US President. Coming to Spies in Disguise, the script writers Cindy David, Lloyd Copeland and Lloyd Taylor created a richer and more spy story. With the main character is the super cool guy, who is admired by many people Lance Sterling (Will Smith). However, Lance was harmed by bad guys and in the process of troubleshooting, he was accidentally turned into a pigeon in a bold experiment by assistant Walter Beckett (Tom Holland). Pigeons are the perfect cover for Lance to act. However, under the guise of the dove, Lance cannot perform action scenes and use high-tech items normally. And many funny things happened from there.
Because of the purpose of entertainment, in general, the plot of Spies in Disguise is nothing too sublime. There are even moments when an adult audience will find it quite silly. However, the extremely cute and silly pieces can make the audience forgive it all. Especially when Lance Sterling was turned into a dove. The lovely shape and the series of humorous lines of this character make viewers laugh. In addition, there are other pigeons that are a strong supporter for Sterling, while contributing the most amusing to the film.

‘Cats: The film was criticized but the music is doing well

Director Tom Hooper must have had dozens of bricks to bring back as a Christmas gift, when the adaptation of the Broadway musical called Cats: Cats, really failed miserably. The film is receiving a lot of criticism from both professionals and moviegoers. The most obvious evidence for the tragic end of Cats is the 17% score on the movie review site Rotten Tomatoes.

Negative comments and comments about the film have been appearing ever since the first trailer of the film was released. The first day of the Cats release also grossed … “terrible” with only 6.2 million. Actually this is a very painful result after the efforts of the whole crew.

But this review is not to be deceived, but to advocate for this adaptation. Ignoring haters, ignoring disgusting comments, ignoring the flat score and also disappointing sales. If you love music, you will love the movie. If you like the choreography and the inability to act, you’ll love the movie. So treat this as a work to enjoy in the Christmas season, not too scrutinizing.

The story of Cats: Cats are very simple. Almost all the details in the book Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S Elliot, published in 1939, are completely preserved. Victoria kitten, played by bale actress Francesca Hayward, was thrown away in an alley in London. Soon after, the cat was surrounded by wild cats named Jellicles, and they introduced themselves with the song Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats. The members of this “gang” include Skimbleshanks, Jennyanydots, two thieves Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer, fat cat Bustopher Jones and finally Mr. Mistoffelees with a warm heart.

Victoria seems to have joined the ranks of Jellicles cats on a pretty day. Deuteronomy, the goddess of cats, is hosting the annual party called Jellicle Ball. Each cat will have to impress her to enter the Heaviside Layer, where the chosen cat will have the opportunity to reincarnate. However, all conflicts occur when the Jellicles group is attacked by Macavity, a crafty, cunning cat. His accomplices Growltiger and Bombalurina want to take control of their leader Macavity.

The production, design and costumes of the movie are very … weird. This I also agree. However, the more you watch, the more familiar the audience becomes familiar with the images. To do this, audiences must at least have faith in the adaptations, or in this case Cats. The costumes and makeup of the actors are greatly supported thanks to CGI technology. The cats in the movie are modified with mischievous ears and the tail is always fluttering. Another thing that audiences need to keep in mind is that the characters in the movie are full-sized, like cats. So the set must be really huge. For most of the film, cats will dance together, sing under tables, or even on a dirty street with dozens of trash bins around.
