Okay, to start, that is a SCREENSHOT up there ^^. As if it wasn't already obvious enough that I didn't draw the picture, I don't need anybody chasing after me screaming "ART THEEEEF!!1!1"
Before you enter this area, please make sure you respect my opinions. If you do, in turn, I'll respect your's. However, if you swear me out, call me a bitch, and encrypt your entire comment in capslock just for not having the exact same opinion as "ALL POWERFUL, BEAUTIFUL YOUUU," then you're going to get ignored by me. Enough said.
So yeah, Alpha and Omega.
Where do we begin? First, let's talk about the wolf "facts" in the movie.
This movie has a few educational facts, like how wolves will often times fight for territory when food is scarce. However, there are way too many things WRONG too. Let's put this into a list.
1. The wolf pack ranking systems made me gag.
It seems like most of the wolves in the pack who are supposed to be subordinates are omegas. It appears as if the only wolves that hunt are the alphas and beta(s), and there are like 12 alphas in a pack. WHAT IS THIS? Sure, I get it. It's supposed to be a movie for kids who don't overanalyze the whole thing. But I think almost EVERYBODY knows there are not 15 alphas in a pack! Maybe not your average businessman who has never took interest in wolves, but you'd think a company who made a movie about all wolves should know that simple fact. And, oh boy, don't even get me started on all the omegas. There is usually only ONE omega in a pack of real wolves. They are the lowest ranking of all of the members of the group, and is the last to eat a kill. And, not only that, but it appears that the omegas in Alpha and Omega (which a vast majority of the pack seems to be) don't hunt, track, etc. AHjdhjfghjwewfgjewfgfjklsah
2. The anatomy. Ugh.
Why are these things skinny skinny skinny? It looks like they're starving. A bet with this style, it would take a PREGNANT wolf just to look like the normal weight and size of a natural wolf. And I don't really wanna go too in-depth of anatomy at the moment, so just take a look at a picture of a real wolf and one of Humphery, and just see how different the anatomy is on the legs, head, etc.
3. Eye color and hair.
Eye color is one that I can let go more easily than the horrid ranking system. The eye colors are way unrealistic. First of all, real wolves are born with blue eyes, and all wolves' eyes eventually will fade to this dull yellowish brownish greyish thing. It's not too bad if you just give them some natural looking eye colors that aren't naturally found on wolves (green, blue, brown, etc.), but just wtf is with lavender purple eyes? Another thing, hair. Okay. Anime hair on wolves. Nonononono. Sure, it gives them personality, but nonono. I think I liked more of the hairstyles that had to do with more of the scruff (Hutch's hair, for example), than the styles that had to do with more of the head (Eve's hair, for example). I guess it's more up to you about the whole hair deal, because some of you can live with the fact that the hair was there was the sake of giving the wolves personality.
Okay, now let's move onto plotline.
The plotline was cliche and not too original. You already knew from the beginning that they were going to make it back to Jasper Park in the end and resolve the whole thing. You also knew that Kate and Humphrey were going to fall in love ever since they were put in Idaho. Heck, you could probably already tell from the preview art. Gee, a male and a female wolf looking at each other dreamily and sitting right next to each other. That sure doesn't look like they're going to become mates! What did surprise me, however, was when Garth and Lilly fell in love. (Not in the end, though. As soon as they took that walk together and played charades or whatever you knew they were slowly bonding. I just didn't expect them to really marry).
Then, moving onto animation...
Eh, doesn't bother me as much as it does some people. But some of the animations look real "stiff" or something. I don't know. At this point it probably looks like I'm just TRYING to find more reasons to make the movie look bad, so go ahead and call BS on this paragraph I guess.
Although, you guys probably think I hate this movie with all my guts if I'm going to make a rant on it. Actually, I do like the movie, even though it sucks in almost every way possible. I don't know, it just has this effect on me that makes me like it or something. In fact, I'm in the middle of creating an OC. No matter what your opinion is on it, just stick to YOUR opinion, no matter what other people tell you. Don't even listen to grumpy ol' me if you don't want to. Everybody is entitled to their own feelings.
