Sponge Out Of Water: Into Our Top Flicks List


The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water. I love this movie for three reasons.
1. No
2. David
3. Hasslehoff

Ok, that was harsh. Other than that, the storyline for this particular movie was also gold. Compared to the first Spongebob offering in the big screen, this flick has better pacing. Better dialogue. It's in 3D. And, dude, there's a nod to The Avengers so how can you possibly go wrong?

For a while, I did want to complain about the 3D hype though. Mainly because half the movie was still in its usual TV series cartoon form. So I felt a little shortchanged. But when the 3D action went on, the level of action that came with it made the wait so worth it.

I love how the storyline revolved around what the TV series has always hammered down on us as truly important: The Krabby Patty Formula. I love the plot twists --that the pirate who stole the formula actually stole it to boost his food truck sales. And that THAT pirate was actually the pirate in the TV series' intro credits music. I love the fact that THAT pirate just had to be Antonio Banderas!

And the kids, of course, appreciated that their favourite cartoon characters needed to have super powers to save the day. Mr. Krabbs, YOU ROCK!


Ah, Sandy… if I were you, I would so sue. :P

As a mother, naturally, I would have to say that the concept of TEAMWORK was the main backbone of this film is very good. Even Plankton became one of the good guys. Well… temporarily, that is.

Overall, good watch for the family.
The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water hits cinemas on April 4. You'd be missing a lot if you didn't take a dip in this one.

The Sponge Out Of Water Premiere Post

I am pretty sure my boys have caught my Contest-Crazy Virus because as soon as Nickelodeon announced Free Tickets to the Sponge Out Of Water Premiere, they were all over the place with ideas on how to win.

The mechanics was pretty simple: Take a Selfie With Spongebob. My boys did like a dozen hilarious poses each, but we finally settled on these two. And as you would have it --WE WON! 4 tickets for the whole family in the bag!

So, flashforward to March 28, 2015 at SM Megamall's Cinema One.

The long wait at the gate was made worthwhile with the ton of freebies being given away. There were these ultra snazzy Spongebob Cola Tumblers, these handy Spongebob Cheese Popcorn Tubs, Choco Knotts, ever-flowing Milkita candies, Propan TLC colouring pens and vitamins. Uh-huh. Talk about packing it packed!

There were games during the event itself. And raffles --which, given our luck in that arena, we didn't win.

But Invincibubble (aka Spongebob on steroids) was there --and that's like a huge win in itself. he high-rived Kenji! And, yes, I failed to take a shot of that. *whimpers hopelessly*

And then, the movie went on in its 3D glory --which I shall talk about in another post.
But for now, let me end this entry by saying thanks again, Nickelodeon! We've been joining your contests for years and we've been lucky enough to have always won. All our Nickelodeon Halloween Parties, we've attended for free, thanks to you.

Oh, last note: Get your kids into joining contests. There is just no better feeling of accomplishment for these little ones when they've won an event for the whole family.
