      My personal (unremarkable) review of Food from the Sky, Food from the Sky is a movie worth seeing

      I especially like this film where food falls from the sky, I especially like 3D animation, this film writes everyone's childhood dreams, and the food inside is also very strange O(∩_∩)O haha~
         There are incredible hamburgers under the sky rain! Ice Cream Snow! (The name is also very funny and the food is shocking / cloudy, and sometimes there is meatball rain / small meatballs falling from the sky / pie falling from the sky)
         fulfilled the words of my mother that no pie will fall...

      Oversize me!

      supersize me! I just watched a documentary about McDonald's culture in the United States in the past two days. Even thinking of the reason for the last climax, to sum up, oversize culture, everything must be big! More than anything! . . . The movie is average. At the beginning, I even thought the laugh was far-fetched, but after seeing it, I felt more and more talented. I like the part of jelly-o castel and gummy bear the most, reminds me of katty perry, that california girls delicious MV. This...

      burger rain, good. spaghetti storm, nooo

      great animation combined with humor and sarcasm. the plot's lame, the effect it brings however, is revealing. i meant to throw up when i saw the dancing headless chickens. there's a lot there in the movie--hidden actually--junk food, obesity, gene mutation, gluttony, trash dumping, being laughed at by wanting to be a's always a delight to see americans making jokes on their own people esp their politicians. this time, even China's been put on their joke list . haha. this...

      Fulfill your childhood dreams

      I think everyone may have had a similar dream in this film when they were young, the heroine who had to follow the crowd in order to survive in society, the warm father-son relationship in the film, the child star who lost herself, and had to admire American creativity and films It's a pity that I haven't seen the 3D version, I believe it must be more shocking, and the soundtrack and colors are really good, the whole film is very warm, I didn't expect that the food I eat every day can also be...

      The Value of Life and Father's Love

      A lot of the scenes in the value of life
      movie are things I've fantasized about and longed for
      A big private lab that can make a lot of weird stuff
      and that stuff makes me happy
      A house of cream ice bullying
      playground everything Good things are within our reach,
      so when I see those scenes that have popped up in my mind many times,
      my heart is not only excited and joyful, but also a touch of relief
      . There are so many things in life that lead us to pursue...

    The film is adapted from the children's book of the same name first published in 1978 in the United States. The book was co-authored by the authors Judy Barrett and Ron Barrett, and it is accompanied by illustrations. It is full of wild and weird ideas and is deeply loved by children at that time. A satellite that can make food, keep dropping food for everyone to enjoy.
