'Penguins of Madagascar': Meet the Penguins!

I have to admit I was always kind of curious about the Madagascar movies, but never quite interested enough to check them out. For some reason, though, the Penguins of Madagascar spin-off that is now coming out in theaters (November 26) is really making me want to buy some popcorn and put my family's bottoms in some theater seats! I mean, some of the characters are voiced by the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich. What could go wrong? I did some recon first, and read a Boston Globe review pointing out that the penguins have been a little hard to keep track of. Apparently some of that will be rectified in the movie's opening, which they flatteringly describe: "The film’s cleverest element by far is its prologue, which flashes back to these unlikely adventurers’ pint-size origins down in Antarctica, complete with Werner Herzog (!) popping up as a ’toon documentarian." SO... I decided to make myself a little penguin dossier and get to know these crazy characters before I delve in. Okay, by recon I also meant going to Wikipedia. Regardless, here they are: + Skipper (voiced by Tom McGrath) - This guy is the penguin leader. Skipper is the penguin with a plan who gets them in line and hands out the orders. "Calculating and nearly unflappable, Skipper's raving paranoia and tendency to view even the most ordinary activities as a military operation, combined with his experience in covert ops, has driven him to prepare for nearly any situation, no matter how bizarre or unlikely." Apparently he's also afraid of needles. Every leader needs a flaw. + Rico (voiced by John DiMaggio) - Rico is the penguin who specializes in weapons and explosives. Flippers, explosives, what could go wrong? He sometimes speaks normally, but mainly communicates through grunts and squeals. "Slightly unhinged, Rico swallows useful tools, such as dynamite, and regurgitates them when needed, to the point of regularly regurgitating objects that appear to be too large for him to have swallowed in the first place. He has been referred to as a psychopath in several episodes. He is shown in some episodes to be in a relationship with a beautiful, female doll called Mrs. Perky." I love this guy already. + Kowalski (voiced by Jeff Bennett) - Kowalski is the strategist and gadgeteer of the crew. "Kowalski is a brilliant inventor, but he cannot read (although he does carry around a clipboard upon which he records drawings of their plans). He also tends to over-analyze situations and has created many amazing devices which have put the team in danger." Like Skipper, this penguin also has a weakness - he is afraid of going to the dentist. + Private (voiced by James Patrick Stuart) - Private is the younger, less experienced and more emotionally sensitive rookie of the penguins. However, he is also the most down to earth (doesn't seem that hard, considering the others). "Private tends to offer simpler, more commonsense solutions in response to Skipper and Kowalski's complex strategies (although he also shows an unusual interest in unicorns on occasion)." Fun fact: "Private speaks with a middle-class British accent (as opposed to American voices for Skipper and Kowalski), much in the spirit of English-soldier characters in popular World War II films." I didn't miss any penguins, did I? Who is your favorite?

코로나 19 사태를 예견한 영화 <감기> 재조명
영화 속 현실이 코앞으로? 정부가 오늘 코로나19 대응 위기경보를 최고 단계인 심각 단계로 격상했다. 심각 단계를 발령한 것은 2009년 신종인플루엔자 사태 이후 11년 만이다. 한편, 몇일새 확진자가 폭증하면서 국민들의 우려가 갈수록 높아지고 있는 가운데, ‘감염’을 소재로 만들어진 과거 영화들이 역주행 하고있다. 바이러스 확산 우려로 외출을 꺼리면서 영화관 대신 온라인 동영상 스트리밍 서비스로 집에서 시간을 보내는 시청자가 급격하게 늘고 있기 때문이다. 국내 영화에서는 한국 영화 최초로 바이러스의 감염 공포를 다룬 영화 <감기>가 재조명되고 있다. 영화는 평소 가볍게 받아들였던 감기라는 질병이 인류의 생존을 위협하는 치명적인 바이러스가 될 수도 있다는 점을 모티브로 제작됐다. 놀랍게도 현재 중국 우한에서 벌어지고 있는 상황들이 영화 속 대한민국의 현실과 맞닿은 점이 아주 인상적이다. 또한, 극한의 상황에 치달으며 식료품을 확보하기 위한 갈취 또는 폭동을 일으키는 인간의 이기심이 그려지면서 이번 코로나19 양상에서 드러난 현시점의 모습들을 연상시키고 있다. 영화 <감기>속 이야기를 따라가 보며 더 큰 재난사태에 미리 대비해 보는 건 어떨까. 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
