I did this very thing the other day to reverse engineer the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls API (super fun), but also launched a bunch of other apps to see what sorts of services they were talking to, and what kind of data they were sending. Yikes.

Movie Review: Sing

3 out of 5 stars

It was movie night in the LaCour home theater, and the family hunkered down to watch Sing, a 2016 animated feature from Illumination Entertainment.

Sing tells the tale of a struggling theater owner Buster Moon, voiced by Matthew McConaughey, as he tries to save his theater from financial ruin by hosting a signing competition. After a mishap by his assistant, Moon ends up advertising that the show will feature a $100,000 prize, rather than a $1,000 prize, and chaos ensues.

The movie features average animation and some decent voice work from McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, and Seth McFarlane. It drags a bit in the middle, and could lose about 15-20 minutes of run time to make it tighter. That said, great music and some decent laughs make it a worthwhile rental for the family.

 
 

Its the apocalypse outside, & I just tossed on a poncho, & stood in the downpour so I could start my smoker for 20 lbs of pork.
