Pleasant Family Fare

Cats and dogs instinctively do not like each other, and Bodi, the Mastiff, and a cat named Angus Scattergood, an aging rock star, were no exception at the beginning of their time together. Bodi left his home on the mountain to pursue a career in rock 'n roll, and Angus, with an inflated ego and an emancipated underweight physique, dreaded writing a new song which was so desperately needed to revive his flailing career. The animated film "Rock Dog" was not a Disney movie, nor a DreamWorks, nor any other big movie studio movie, but it worked like a dream in my eyes. Lying in our reclining seats two rows from the front, my beautiful 10-year old granddaughter (Hannah) and I laid our eyes for the next 80 minutes on the screen that projected before us. At times I cried, at times I sang (quietly) and almost all the time I was dancing with my shoulders, my feet, my hands. I LOVED this movie more than she did. Bodi's father was one that is characteristic... he wanted Bodi to follow in his footsteps, and his particular footsteps were walking back and forth guarding their mountain home from wolves. He tried and tried to train him, but Bodi wanted to be a rock 'n roll guitarist in a band. Finally, he gave in and told Bodi to go to the big city and follow his dreams. His dreams eventually became reality and his adventures that preceded involved sharply dressed wolves, a low rider black Cadillac, a bunch of colorful characters and so much more. The message of the movie was clear. Do what you need to do to make YOUR life what YOU want it to be. Don't just go with the flow or the status quo. Be yourself. Everyone exceeds at something. No two people are the same. Use your uniqueness and follow your dreams!!

Enjoyable movie for all ages

I saw "Rock Dog", starring the voices of Luke Wilson-The Ridiculous 6, Blades of Glory; J.K. Simmons-The Accountant, The Closer_tv; Eddie Izzard-Hannibal_tv, Valkyrie and Lewis Black-The Daily Show_tv, Man of the Year. This is an animated movie that is based on a Chinese graphic novel about Tibetan sheep dogs that keep a village of sheep-that live on a mountain top-safe from wolves. J.K. is the top dog in charge that is training his son, Luke, to take over when he retires. Only problem is that Luke has no interest in taking the job. He would rather play his guitar all day and after he finds a radio, he wants to become a rock star. The first chance Luke gets to follow his dream, he takes off for the big city to learn from legendary rock star, Eddie. Since the number of dogs for security purposes is kind of low, J.K. resorts to dressing some of the sheep up in dog costumes, just to fool the wolves. Lewis plays the leader of the wolves. There is a cameo that is kind of like a narrator to the movie. He is a yak named Fleetwood Yak-Ha Ha!!-and he is voiced by Sam Elliot. It's a pleasant family movie. Not the best I've ever seen but not the worst, either. It's rated "PG" for action and language and has a running time of 1 hour & 20 minutes. I don't know if I would buy it on DVD but it would be a good rental.

Better then I thought.

So this movie was a little more than what I expected (Or just better than I expected). It starts out with this cool 2D animation that tells the story of a sheep town being guarded by a kung fu dog being attacked by wolves. In order to keep the wolves from coming back he outlaws music, and of course his son Brody grows up wanting to be a musician so he goes to the big city to become a Rock Dog. One of my favorite parts of the film is their concept of the rock park, a place in the city were musicians meet and perform. It's like a cross between Venice Beach and CBGBs. Really cool. The animation was not that good nothing too great or unique, but I did love the story. The typical animation type of a animal that was met for one thing and is known for one thing, wanting to do something out of the norm, but that rock setting in which is goes over the clichés of Rock and Roll specifically that late 80s early 90s version in which the movie seems to be happening. Plus a lot of real cool characters in the movie. My favorite being Angus Shattergood a cool cat voiced by Eddie Izzard who is the living persona of Rock and Roll. My biggest pet peeve of the film is actually that the movie is really short. I mean really short. It was barely over an hour. Usually, when animated movies are that short they give us a animated short at the beginning of the film to make up for it. that did not happen this time. You can see the story coming to an end, and you think to yourself more is coming, but it does not. So bland animation tells a great story so simple that it makes the movie seem short. For that I would wait for the DVD to come out to see it.

Fun and Inspiring

Some friends and I watched this movie with our kids on the opening night. Although visual might not be the strongest among the animations we have watched, we all enjoyed it. Plus, it delivered a strong message of courage and persistence when chasing one's dream, great for the kids to learn.

A low budget animation with simple story and bugs

I went to go see rock dog, having very little knowledge and expectations of the movie. After sitting in my chair for 90 min I thought "Despite some clichés, it was better then I hoped for it to be." I saw the movie to be more fun and heartfelt then funny but it does have humor the whole family can enjoy. is a cinema website serving you dear visitors 7/24 to give information about all movies, now playing movies, show location of nearest theaters and sessions, trailers of upcoming movies and information about actors and actresses, their biographies, videos and photographs. is the only interactive website where visitors can interact with each other using Facebook, Twitter and Google. is a global website using highly advanced web technologies and is served in 7 different languages apart from English and can give the visitors same service from the countries where these languages are spoken.
