Nothing, and I mean nothing, is as addictive as Angry Birds. It’s virtually the perfect blend of mental strain, competitiveness, addictiveness and frustration all in one gloriously packaged melting pot. It’s so addictive I once observed my friend Matty (my Girlfriend’s brother-in-law to be) play just one level for about 4 hours solid. It was quite remarkable. For the full pleasure of Angry Birds to be enjoyed though it needs to be bought on the iPad, which is so beautiful it brings a tear to my eye every day on the train.
On a side note, I think this movie has me obsessing about it because it features Jermaine Clement as the all singing and dancing, Nigel. For a long time now I have maintained a strong man-crush on the gentle Kiwi giant. The movie has only exacerbated this.
In case you missed my original post about Rio in the UK… Here is the synopsis of the movie:
From the makers of the hit Ice Age series, RIO is a comedy-adventure about taking a walk on the wild side. Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. Blu and Linda think he’s the last of his kind, but when they learn about another Macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu’s female counterpart.
Thanks for reading (Mum).
