Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, as some of you may have seen, back in April I started a film podcast entitled Film Focus and on this podcast I talk about various topics in film and reviews as well. after another week off because of a bust time with work and a wedding I’m back with my first review since Suicide Squad in the form of Sausage Party.

Anyway here’s the 16th episode:

So you have the option of reading my smaller review I did earlier on today or you could listen to the better and extended cut of my thoughts on the film where I go a little more in-depth with the story and characters.

As I said before in each episode I’ll cover a different topic and since I don’t have much in the way of listeners or promotion, I’m here to spread the word about my podcast. 🙂

ONE PARAGRAPH REVIEW: Sausage Party

Howdy ladies and gents people, time for another single paragraph review and today I’ll be briefly talking about Sausage Party. Now I was always curious about the film from the time of its announcement to the start of the marketing, and while the trailers didn’t blow me away, as a fan of animation I had to give it a watch.

The plot for the film can be summed up as the following: “The film is about one sausage leading a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store.” The interesting thing about the story was that there was much more to it than the trailers let on (well done marketing team), there’s was a lot of inventive, smart and layered elements that went into the story and it was fairly captivating for the most part. Though I will admit the humour was a bit hit and miss for me and the overly sexual nature of the film was a bit much times, and there’s one moment towards the end that kind of ruined the immersion of the film (Those of you who have seen the latter half of the The Lego Movie should pick up on what I’m on about). But for all the stuff that I didn’t love, there was a lot of stuff to appreciate like the film references, and visual presentation which was incredible with the impressive and varied character design, animation and cinematography. Oh and the use of music and overall film score was good too. And finally the voice cast was pretty solid too with Seth Rogen and a lot of his familiar acting people surrounding him once again. Everyone did a good job in their roles but I’ll just highlight certain people: Seth Rogen as Frank was pretty cool, he was interesting and well-rounded character and I appreciated how Rogen was more of a character than his usual self. I also really liked Kristen Wiig as Brenda Bunson, she was sassy, direct and had some good lines too. Michael Cera surprised as Barry (because oft he voice), he was a character I didn’t think I’d like and ended up being one of my favourites.Jonah Hill who I recognised straight away was great as Carl, while Nick Kroll was also good as Douche, and Salma Hayek was another instantly recognisable voice as Teresa del Taco who was another memorable character with a lot of passion charisma. I also loved Edward Norton as the Woody Allen-esque bagel Sammy Bagel Jr., Norton really surprised with his voice work and Sammy was a really likeable dude. And David Krumholtz was also funny too as Kareem Abdul Lavash with his beef with Sammy Bagel. Other actors worth noting were Bill Hader, James Franco, Craig Robinson and Paul Rudd.The strange thing about Sausage Party is that it turned out being the exact film I thought it’d be with the over-the-top and crude humour full of your standard set of sex, drugs and violent-related humour that comes with a R/15 rated US comedy, but at the same time it was incredibly creative, fun, silly, stupid, well-thought out and entertaining. At the end of the day this is one of those films you’ll either love or hate, but I enjoyed it more than I expected and I’d say its worth a watch. 🙂

So that was my review, have you seen Sausage Party and if so what did you think of it? Please leave your comments below and I’ll see ya on the next review, laters! 😀
