“Earth to Echo” or “Earth to Goonies, Explorers, E.T. and other 80’s Kids Movies” My fuckin review

My review for “Earth to Echo“. This story is about 3 best friends on their last night together right before they move away from each other. Alex (Teo Halm) the foster kid who hates being left behind. Tuck (Astro) is the boy filming (found footage film) it all and does the narration for the film. The last is Munch (Reese Hartwig) who is tech smart and the weird one. They all head out to follow some map that has shown up on their iPhones. There they find a little robot alien named Echo and they have to help him get pieces back to his ship, so he can get the fuck up off this backwards ass planet. Along the way they meet a girl and the government is after them also. They even steal some cars and say “Balls”. In the end we learn that friendship is universal. Okay so I liked this movie. Yes, its PG but it’s magical as fuck and the kids seem like real life kids. They are smart ass and just smart about things too. It reminds me of the kids movies in the 1980’s. The kids in those movies were smart and funny and you wanted to be their best friends when you were little. It really is like a bunch of 1980’s movies smashed together. Which is a good thing.There is even a little bit of a horror element in that shit too. You should take yourself or your kids to see this shit. So if you love aliens, robots, kids stealing cars, 80’s movies, and an honest ending then go see this movie. It was a lot of fun to watch and the kids in the theatre were clapping and shit. You will not love it, but you will have fun watching it. It will make you miss all those kid adventure movies you loved as a kid and as an adult.

The Facts:

G. I’m glad the main kid that was filming and doing the narration was the character Tuck. There should be more African-American actors playing the main characters in kids movies and adult movies too. Not just some sidekick role. Let that whitey be the sidekick for a change.

H. Echo the Dolphin is not in this movie. Sorry. 😦

I. Cute
