No Place Like “Home” Except “Apartment”

Home looks like it could be heartwarming but won’t be. The character dynamic is there but the plot isn’t. Jim Parson as the alien is the perfect choice for the character description but the animation doesn’t match Minion status- which it needs to. He’s not adorable yet. Rihanna has character in her voice but at times seems one noted as Tip. But they play well together. It seems like a fun movie and maybe even touching but not to the same status of Pixar. You see, if Pixar had this movie we’d be sobbing by the end. Because Dreamworks has this movie, we’re going to be indifferent.  And that’s a shame because this movie is so close to being moving- it’s so close to being incredible.
