Angry Birds movies? Wow. Too far... keep it to Apps... and toys.... and whatever they are selling now.

I wonder when the craze will die? It's lasted longer than I thought it would.

Honestly, I feel like the toys and other merchandise are too much. It's an app, for a phone. Do we really need plush toys in the checkout line at Target?

Kevin Bacon. The guys in everything!

I just can't imagine a movie about Angry Birds though. I mean, they don't really talk, and there's no real plot other then get the eggs back from the pigs.

Games with equal or less plots have been made into movies. They were all complete crap, as most video game adaptations in general are, but still... :rolleyes:

You know what, one of the things that always frustrated me about the game was the plot and story of it.
Why are the Birds actually Angry? Why do they feel the need to preform self-acts of destruction upon the green pigs and their flimsy structures?

Maybe others are like me, and just can't get past the opening levels because of this: This movie could be a service to us who simply just don't understand.

But someone still pays the bills; so why not. Good for them. If would be them I would not waste money in a movie; that will be trash. Not many movies out if games are blockbuster.

Actually, they show that when you start the game for the first time.

They are angry at the pigs cause the pigs ate their..children (eggs).
They show an empty nest with footprints leading up to the pigs. And soooo..they are angry.

That's the plot..

I wish people would stop talking about apps 'not supporting' or 'being incompatible with' iPhone 5 when all they really mean is whether it uses the extra screen space or not. To read many outraged one star reviews and change logs you'd think the apps didn't actually work on the iPhone 5 at all

Exactly. Just an example of how real devs update their apps fast, and these clowns take months. Not a lot of time between rehashes I guess.

Wow angry birds isn't even that great of a game just a great time waster you can pick up for free or $1. Could you imagine if it was a $50 console game?

Jayomat

*wow* at all the people who are hating on the game! "It's not even a good game". Is this because you suck at it or what? I mean I just played the first two worlds or something along those lines, but the game concept itself is nothing new, there were maaany games like AB before, the "latest" being the "Worms" series. Yeh it had weapons and movement, but Rovio took the same basic mechanics (point and shoot) but abstracted them to a point so that they work great on an iPhone sized device (different birds = weapons, adjust angle an speed = same as in worms, no movement because you would have to tilt/digital button-it up to make that work). They did a great game for mobile devices and their success proofs it. Stop the blind hate and grow up

Hard to understand it. Just another sign of how dumbed down the culture has become imho.

Nobody said the game was bad its good for $1 but its no Super Mario Bros or Halo. It's no better than Fruit Ninja or Temple Run but you don't see them being turned into movies.

I don't see this franchise moving forward with silly licensing agreements like Star Wars Angry Birds.

Though little kids seem to love the games so what do I know. Shoot they love Skylanders which is a great idea but a bad game.

It is - Angry Birds Trilogy on Xbox/PS. OK, maybe not $50 but you could easily pay $40+ for it.

Where's My Water is already a TV show.

Bad Piggies is so much better than Angry Birds. To bad it doesn't get nearly as much press as Angry Birds.

Oh, I'm not saying they're bad games. I have played several games that are based on similar principles. So, I know that the style of game can be entertaining. What I was saying is that the franchise has so thoroughly disgusted me that any interest I might have once had in trying any of their games has long since been burned out of me...
