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.

I find it quite unlikely that Angry Bird's current popularity will last into 2016.

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?

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.
