  • After disagreeing with 2 of your reviews I was really curious to see if you would say this movie was good even though it wasn't, luckily you came through and was honest ...F is a little harsh but at the same time ....yea lmao can't disagree with anything that was said however I give the animators an A+ like someone said they did the most work and got paid the less and shouldnt be grouped together with this failure it wasn't there fault or job to make the script

  • 'These birds routinely remind us of what is going on with the plot--I'm not exaggerating.' - Chris was exaggerating. The birds only show up twice and both are shown in the review above. Once at the beginning to set the plot and once in the middle when there is a transition to explain why suddenly we are at a wedding.

  • All they had to do was get them to beat the shit out of each other for 90 minutes in fun and creative ways that would make you laugh, or at least that's why I watched it.

  • The fact that they tried to give this movie an adult plot is fucking enraging, the whole point of Tom and jerry is the simplicity in the havoc they make, no fucking need for a “real plot”

  • your channel was recommended on a website. so this is the first review i watched on your channel. totally disagree with almost everything you said in your review. i loved this movie and you gave it an F!? i dont want criticism of what goes on behind the scenes, i only want good front-end. i certainly dont care about philosophical ramblings about "kids' well-being". i dont care if other movies follow a similar formula. the problem with most critics is that they are too concerned with HOW the film was made rather than the end product and thats understandable because they know the work done behind-the-scenes. guess i wont be following your channel.

    Eddy coOl- samaEddy coOl- sama14 days ago
    • @Eddy coOl- sama but that's the entire point of being a movie critics, they watch a movie and they form their own thoughts on it, it isn't about what you think about the movie because critics can hardly give two shits on what your opinion is on the because it's what you think about the movie, and not everyone is going to share the same thoughts as yours. And what the hell are you even on about, last time I checked this hardly ever said anything about the behind the scenes crap just the actual quality of the movie and how it questions audiences intelligence

      Blue MantaBlue Manta10 days ago
    • @Blue Manta I already know that! that's why i rarely take critics' advice. but there lies the problem, they shouldn't be recommending movies if they are unwilling to put themselves in the average movie-goer's shoes who is only concerned with the front-end product. behind-the-scene and technical analysis is the realm of award shows like oscars etc. and it should remain their realm only. this thing is the reason that we often see movies bashed by critics, only gain a huge cult-following later. there's really no human recommendations out there that solely give advice based on front-end product.

  • My 7 year old LOVES theTom And Jerry movie, he’s seen it several times. So the movie is brilliant. My son is the target audience. I saw it with him, and wife and older kids and we loved it. We had a good time. THAT is a successful movie. What a USworldsr says, good or bad, it doesn’t matter.

  • I appreciate they tried to go old school with the animation. But it REALLY doesn’t fit. Now if they had an excuse like Rodger Rabbit with Toons living with Humans. That’d explain it. But nah, they’re just in that animated style for nostalgia.

    • @Blue Manta I'm saying for a full length movie at least the Smurfs could actually interact and you can make a movie about them that's 2 hours long but Tom and Jerry's was made for TV and was about the physical comedy and not really enough substance to hold on for 2 hours because it was perfect where it was not trying to make films of it unless you change the characters

      Making something from nothingMaking something from nothing10 days ago
    • Tom and Jerry talking isn't really the point of Tom and Jerry, it was all just about physical comedy rather than verbal comedy, which this movie completely missed

  • Dude I couldn’t finish this movie in one seating. My fiancé and I said we would watch Snyder cut in two days. We flew through most of the Snyder cut in 1 night and had to pull ourselves away from the tv to get some sleep. Our daughter and I watched this crap and barely could get past the first 20mins and had to turn it off watch Static Shock and went to sleep. Finished it Sunday again I had to watch it because we started it Saturday. It was a chori to watch

  • Mann in my opinion I think this was a solid movie. Fun overall to watch, sure it’s not a great movie but it was a nostalgia trip. There were subtle references to past Tom an jerry bits from iconic episodes and movies. Good handful of cast that didn’t over do the acting. Animation was smooth and effects that went along with the chaos scenes helped with the tone. Plus the Editing was awesome with the pacing going on just enough so you wouldn’t feel tired of watching. Only negative I would say was some characters not having an arch in the movie. You can cut a few out and the short storyline would still go on. The movie really isn’t about a story just for pure spirited kids to enjoy.

  • The problem is nobody can hand animate the shit like they use to and when you spend that much time drawing you spend an equal amount of time making sure it’s actually good beforehand.

  • Given their Tom and Jerry's thing. I think they did an alright job. And I didn't like the smurfs at either. What can we even expect from them a heart warming story ?. Slap stick comedy? I don't think what ever they do with this IP is going to fail in the general public's eyes. I just accept it as it comes didn't have high expectations had a few giggles and recommend it to a family or two that's it. Sure there was tons to improve on it but, we got a start let's hope it's only up from here.

  • This movie made me want to punch faces... like everyone. Men, women, children, old folks, their dog etc... It was so punishingly bad. From the constant need to remind us that it's soooooo hip and happenin and so very 2021 with product placements, fads of the week, and social media garbage, to the reason why Tom and Jerry were chasing each other ON TOP of everything you said... like, when you find out that Jerry is a gigantic dickhead antagonist, it stops being funny. Did we really need a reason? Cat vs. Mouse, it's nature, nuff said. I gave up the moment Tom started singing in auto-tune at a piano like some John Legend reject. The music in it was cringe, somehow they thought Tom and Jerry needed hip hop, pop, radio fluff to be all swagilicious for the tik tok generation. Like, congrats you dated your film that will become out of style and irrelevant in like a year. If it was any more dated, they woulda added fidget spinners to the mix.... They had Tom do the floss dance.... THE FUCKING FLOSS!! The movie is top to bottom ASS.

  • When I heard people say they are glad this movie is doing successful while Raya and the Last Dragon is failing at the box office, it makes me sick to my stomach as it shows they are far too biased against Disney to see real art created by talented animators, writers and directors. Raya and the Last Dragon is a masterpiece and deserves to succeed in such a way as it has a unique look you cannot replicate in any film. Tom and Jerry 2021 is a cynically lazy cash grab from money hungry suits that it makes the 1993 film look like The Iron Giant and Soul combined, I knew this film was going to be bad from the first trailer alone. I have a major grudge towards society for not recognising art when it's so very well made and had so many months worth of effort put in the work films like Kubo and the Two Strings, Zootopia, Raya and the Last Dragon, The Iron Giant, The Secret of NIMH, Inside Out, In This Corner of the World and Klaus has amongst so many amazing movies that just happened to be animated then lumping all animation as a 'genre' that ticks me off to my very core. And this is coming from a huge fan of the classic Hannah Barbara cartoon shorts of the iconic cat and mouse duo, because their comedy was spot on with focus, pacing, editing, comedic animation, timing and characterisation. It was purely solid gold. I kindly of hate how we are still living in a society where cashgrab nostalgia makes money far more than beautiful works of filmmaking art, whether animation or love action.

  • I don't know why Hollywood makes these live-action/animation hybrid movies. They never work. They should have made an animated film instead. You can totally make serviceable Tom and Jerry movie. Tom and Jerry: Blast Off to Mars and Tom and Jerry: The Fast and the Furry are direct-to-video, low budget films, yet they are extremely entertaining.
