Pixies online movie review - So bad
I don't have a problem with low-budget movies, per-se. I have watched a lot of low budget stuff in my lifetime that has been passably entertaining.
But this movie is so poorly done that I'm surprised they actually got real celebrities (Paxton and Plummer) to sign on. We only rented this because the movie we really wanted was unavailable.
Plot: This is about a vindictive pixie who enlists his followers to completely destroy the life of a human for the completely egregious and unforgivable crime of...throwing a bag of trash in the river. I get the environmental subtext, but it's pretty flimsy when the pixies bully someone relentlessly. At the end, there's some reconciliation where the pixies realize they've been awful and the human is kind of like "sorry about that thing I did." But the bulk of the film is cheap physical humor. "He gets hit between the legs. hahaha." ugh.
Execution: The low- quality animation is rivaled only by the poor sound quality and stale voice-acting. The sound doesn't sync up right most of the time. The actors sound the way I do when I'm tired and my kid asks me to read one more book and I say okay, but I'm just trying to get through it.
I know some people said they loved this, so you know. It's subjective I guess. But if you read all of the reviews and still decide to watch this, remember that some of us tried.
