Movie night! And it is my weekly trip to the local cinema with tonight’s offering the animated flick Rango. I had seen the promos for some time and found they gave no real indication of this movie at all. They are somewhat misleading, but in an unusual way in that Rango is far from just another animated film.
The feeling you get from the promos is that this is animation primarily aimed a younger audience but which adults would enjoy to. It is the norm with animated films today. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. Rango is animation for adults and if adults take kiddies along so be it. Bums on seats equates to more bucks so a film makers aren’t going to cut out a potential market by pushing it as solely adult orientated. I have consistently stated throughout my movie watching life that animation isn’t solely the domain of children and have tried hard in breaking down this barrier of ignorance within adults. If Rango doesn’t finally get through to adults then I sadly fail to wonder what ever will.
