Movie Review: Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole

This month’s movie was Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole.

This movie is about a young barn owl named Soren who is kidnapped by the “Pure Ones” (evil owls). Soren and his new-found friends band together with the legendary Guardians (good guy owls) to save all of owlkind.

Cooper enjoyed the flight scenes in the movie, but thought that the baby owl coughing up a mouse pellet was disgusting. Even though Cooper isn’t evenĀ  a year old, he is amazed at what CGI can accomplish these days. The detail in the feathers, background and special effects was outstanding. And now he wants a cool metal warrior helmet like the owls wore in battle.

    • I remember Craig talking about it too. It was okay – it was a mishmash of Lord of the Rings/The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe/Star Wars – that kind of thing. But with owls. Instead of “Use the force, Luke”, it was “Use your gizzard, Soren”. The effects really were outstanding, though.

    • Thanks! He eats Kaytee Supreme Fortified Daily Blend seed. And millet on occasion. We also give him Lafeber’s Parakeet Pellets (comes in a tub) which is always in his cage (seed is in a different dish). On occasion he will eat one or two pellets.
      Cooper also gets fresh arrowhead water daily. I need to get him to start eating fruits and vegetables!

      • I have the same problem with the fruits and veggies. I am going to look at some of these brands. My cockatiel will eat some Lafeber’s treats and a little Zupreem & lots of veggies but not my budgies.

  1. I wanted to like it, but I have to say, I didn’t. It was a beautiful film, but it just didn’t care for it. And I am a sucker for owls.
