Surprisingly, Animated films arent really discussed as much for whatever reason, Especially the Tweeny girly Disney blu-rays

I enjoyed Madagascar and I am looking forward to its sequel as well as Open Season 2. Having kids and them watching these multiple times you learn to enjoy them. Only thing I will never grow to love is The Wiggles

I'm not complaining

Seems to be that way with Dreamworks releases. Tropic Thunder came out only a few months after the movie and now Madagascar.

I actually liked Open Season because I thoughT Ahston Kutcher did a very good job as Elliot but not having him on the second one which is direct to video, I'm a little skeptical on how good it will be. As for Martin Lawrence, I didn't care for him playing Boo so I don't care that he's not in the second one.

Madagascar is better than Open Season. I love it mostly for the penguins and monkeys. They grew on me. Glad to see they have more face time in the second film.

Picking up Open Season 2. Mostly because... well.... because. The best parts of the movie was with the hunter guy.

The penguins steal the movie, but few clips with the monkeys were darn good.

I preordered it this morning when the link was posted. I hope the BD is reference like Kung Fu Panda. I enjoyed the first Madagascar but somehow did not take the time to watch the second one. I am looking forward to it.

One of the few I saw in the theatres last year. I love the 1st one and this sequel wasn't too bad. I'll likely buy it on Blu.

It was way better. Faster, funnier, more penguin time, nuttier....cant wait...but I will becaues $28 smackers is a wee bit steep considering Pixar releases can be had for $20. But yea, its a must own for me.
Because Calamari Marionette Ph.D sounded pompous, that's why.

i'll be passing for that price.....didn't think it was near as good as the original. IF it gets down to 19.99-24.99 I'll think about it for my kiddos anyway.

Default Madagascar 2 Are You Kidding Me

What in the hell is Amazon thinking? This movie is not worth $35.99. I would not pay that for any movie, let alone this one. Is the damn thing made of gold or something?

It doesn't come out for a bit. Give it some time, the price will come down.
