I really liked the animation, for both the good guys, and the bad. In fact, one of my favorite scenes, visually, was when we are first introduced to the bad guy. There is a very clever camouflage section (using a rat's hide) that just really struck me.

Be careful of your thoughts; guard your mind, for your thoughts become words. Be guarded when you speak, for your words turn into action. Watch what you do, for your actions will become habits. Be wary of your habits, for they become your character. Pray over your character; strive to mold it to the image of Christ, because your character will shape your destiny.

Ideas can germinate from the smallest seeds. Collect those seeds, and let them grow in the back of your mind. You may be surprised by what finally blooms.

When God takes something from your grasp, he's not punishing you. Instead, He’s opening your hands to receive something better. The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

Who has seen the new animated film, Epic?

It's a great family film about a young teenaged girl, M.K, who goes to live with her Dad after her Mother dies. Her Dad is something of an eccentric, who believes in a tiny civilization of people living in the forest and has spent a lot of his life trying to find them.

The animation and design are amazing!

I had no idea M.K was voiced by Amanda Seyfried - it sounds nothing like her!

I was slightly hesitant when I heard that Beyonce was in it, but I ended up loving her character, and she played it well.

My favourite character had to be Ronin though, played by Colin Farrel. He is so serious, has a great sense of duty and comes across as quite authoritative but you see a caring side to him as well. (Oh and I love his accent!!) :cool:

Have you seen it, and did you like it? What were your thoughts?

I just saw Epic with my family. I must say that yes, I loved Ronin. (With that voice, who wouldn't?)

I was pleasantly surprised how little of the 'trees are good and people are bad' theme was present in it, and how the humans come out as the heroes in the end. Always a plus when dealing with 'fairy' type movies, especially as this one started out extremely similar to the old Fern Gully film.

Was I the only one who totally missed that the caterpillar was played by Steven Tyler until I saw the credits? :0

Loved the animation.

And it was scored by Elfman, so what's not to like?

Epic was adorable. I thoroughly liked it, especially the slugs. I usually end up not liking the comedic sidekick type, but the slugs were my favorites.

One of my other favorite parts was that her father turned out to be right, and she apologized to him. So different from many of the teen/preteen movies being made now.

Was I the only one who didn't like the way Ronan came back to life so easily? I mean, after being swarmed by a huge crowd of whatever-they-were? It just seemed too easy. Not that I wasn't glad to see him back.

I loved Epic! Josh Hutcherson did the MC's voice too (I forget his name).

And Elfman did the score, like you said Caeli. What more do you need? ;)

I agree about Ronin, E, but as he was my favourite character, I didn't complain too much about it. ;)


I can't work out who Stephen Tyler is right now. Hmm, I'll have to look his name up.

I didnt realise Pitbull was in it. Not that I listen to his music, *laughs* I just wasn't expecting to see his name in the credits.

It's definitely enjoyable, Heather. :D
