POULTRY WORLD’S TOP 5 CHICKEN MOVIES
SUFFOLK, UK – By day Poultry World is the leading magazine for all things poultry, but by night they are cinema fanatics hunting out the best in poultry related cinema, armed only with puns.
And EXCLUSIVELY in collaboration with Studio Exec they have laid their top five feathery films.
1. Chicken Run: I know it’s obvious and it came under criticism from the industrial side of the poultry business with its gross mis-characterization of the factory vs. free range debate, but you have to love this Aardman classic with some wonderful voice work from plucky Mel Gibson.
2. Chicken Little: Talk about plucky!? Ha ha. That’s a … yeah. This re-imagining of the old fairy tale is a zippy fun animation with loads of jokes for the adults as well as fun for the kids. And everyone’s favorite Kickstarter Zach Braff does the voice honors.
3. Poulet Aux Prunes: Following her wonderful Persepolis, Iranian filmmaker Marjane Satrapi came up with this live action feature starring Mathieu Amalric as a suicidal musician. Hilarious.
4. Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead: The Troma studio produced this wonderful comedy-horror (available to view on the internet I think). Some of us however didn’t like gore, which ruffled a few feathers.
5. Angel Heart: Okay, it isn’t on a level with Indiana Jones’ ‘Snakes! Why did it have to be snakes?’ but Mickey Rourke’s alektorophobia is a running joke through Alan Parker’s otherwise tense sulfuric thriller.
