IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Hey, our parents put up with the strange-as-hell animated shows when we were kids (Pokemon, Dragonball Z, remember those?); perhaps it’s time we carried the flame and let our kids – if any – enjoy their own strange-as-hell cartoons such as this new film version of Moshi Monsters, which should entertain its young fans and serve as a nice distraction for worn-out Mums and Dads.

WHEN’S IT OUT?
