Overview

Migration, directed by Benjamin Renner and Guylo Homsy, is an adventure comedy movie that anyone can enjoy. This movie was released in 12/22/2023, and from the production company, Illumination Entertainment. Voice actors include: Kumail Nanjiani, Tresi Gazal, Elizabeth Banks, Isabela Merced, Carol Kane, Danny DeVito, etc. Illumination makes hilarious movies such as The Minions, Sing, The Grinch, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, The Lorax, and more; so, it’s no surprise that Migration is just as funny.

Summary 

Migration is a movie about a family of ducks. Mack Mallard, voiced by Kumail Nanjiani, is the dad of the family. He is an overprotective father and is extremely anxious. Mack gets convinced by his wife, voiced by Elizabeth Banks, to migrate. This is because she feels that they have been stuck in the same place for a long time. Her and her kids want to go to Jamaica, where they were told that the water glows and the land is tropical. He puts his anxiety aside for his family, so that they could go on this adventure. He puts on a big smile for them and heads towards Jamaica and throughout their expedition they face many troubles, but stay together, nonetheless.

Review  

I thought the plot was basic and predictable, but still entertaining. It was animated beautifully, the landscape, facial expressions, and vibrant colors help the film become very amusing to watch. Even if it’s a movie directed towards children, it still has those hidden adult jokes, which added more humor to it. I would rate this movie 8/10, it’s a cute and you could watch it if you don’t have anything else to do. The dialog and music track were also something that made this movie unique. I loved the character development they did with the father duck because he was first filled with fear, and then became super adventurous at the end.

Nathan Gomez, Contributor
Hello, my name is Nathan Gomez, and I am a senior this year. I am 17, and this is my first-time doing Journalism. I am excited and hopeful that my last year here at SMHS will be the best! Some things you should know about me is that I like to watch movies. My all-time favorite movie is Avengers: Age of Ultron. I can paint, although I mainly do landscapes; I am learning to do human portraits. I also love to read comic books. Some smaller facts about me: I never had a pet, I can roller skate, my favorite color is gold, I like to collect Funko Pops, I learned how to sculpt two years ago, I like the Dragon fruit drink from Starbucks, I listen to all music genres, I have a watch collection, and my favorite animal is a horse. I am looking forward to working with the Breeze staff, and as my role of contributor, I aim to help my colleagues in accomplishing this year's goals. We at Breeze strive to inform our fellow classmates and staff about current issues, changes, or just some interesting news that is happening around school.
