Rock Dog Opens in Theaters 02/24/17
It is not secret our family loves going to the movies, we enjoy all type of films, but we have a soft spot for movies about dogs. It might be because we are dog lovers, but we always fall for animated movies with dogs on it.
Specially on a day like today. Did you know that February 20th is “Love Your Pet Day”? It should be an everyday celebration, but today is the day that we can actually celebrate with millions of people having a pet. We have openly talked before about rescuing dogs. But regardless if you rescue, adopt or buy a pet, you should make sure you treat your pet with respect and love. Your pet will love you back, that is a given.
About the movie
For the Tibetan Mastiffs living on Snow Mountain, a dog’s life has a simple riff: Guard a peaceful village of woolmaking sheep from the thuggish wolf Linnux (Lewis Black) and his rabid pack. To avoid distractions, Mastiff leader Khampa (J.K. Simmons) forbids all music from the mountain. But when Khampa’s son Bodi (Luke Wilson) discovers a radio dropped by a passing airplane, it takes just a few guitar licks for his fate to be sealed: Bodi wants to be a rock ‘n’ roll star. Yet that means defying his father’s wishes, heading to the city, and locating the legendary – and reclusive – musician Angus Scattergood (Eddie Izzard), who needs to write a new song and fast. If Bodi can put a band together, help Angus with his song, and defeat the wolves’ plot to take Snow Mountain, his life will be in tune. Bodi will become what he’s always dreamed of being: More than a dog … more than a Rock God… he’ll be a ROCK DOG!
