No, I haven't watched it again, but lots of things on my mind have been going through this movie especially over why I don't think this movie is anywhere near as good as the first movie. Warning for those who haven't watched it: There will be spoilers here.
Now firstly, my main issues: Now posters never show the main problem the characters face in this movie, which is the deforestation aspect of this which by the way, I think that part of the message was really blatant. Some of the posters show these Red Spix Macaws, but they aren't the main villians as I thought. Nigel and Gabi are even shown of the opposite side of the poster. So I thought Nigel sided with like these Red Birds, but... no. They never meet. When I went into the movie, I was surprised that these people causing the deforestation even existed since I never heard about them.
The last main issue is that the concept of the Blue Macaws still technically existing is a bit... annoying to me. Quite frankly, to me it makes the concept of the first film a bit... well... pointless. By itself, it's a good concept. Don't forget that I never watched the trailers prior. Not sure why though...
Another things that really bothers me here is how infrequently the birds see these humans causing the destruction. Most of the encountering is through Linda and Tulio. Maybe once or twice, but that's still more than the birds, and I thought this was a movie about the birds. This to me makes the humans aspect pointless. They should've scrapped the idea of these humans and focused on characters that were more apparent in the posters.
I've stated before that I don't like Roberto or Eduardo... and that hasn't changed. I don't like Eduardo because he has this deep hate for humans for good reason mind you, but my biggest problem is how he changes his mind so quickly after finding out that not ALL humans are bad. Roberto... is a dick... There's not really any other way I can say it. He annoys me. He has the same issue as Eduardo along with the problem that... he starts freaking out once he sees the humans attacking. It did make a funny scene admittedly when other Blue Macaws nonchalantly say that he's been acting like that since they first found him, but that's about it.
Jewel knows that the humans aren't all bad. Why not have her tell Eduardo or anyone else for that matter that Blu (and Jewel) know much more about humans than these humans? Speaking of which, I swear this movie hated Blu. Some funny moments, I'll say, but most are just giving Blu hard times even to the point of him leaving... uh, kinda.
If you take out certain aspects of this movie such as the Red Macaws or Nigel and Gabi, I don't think much of the movie would've changed, but I really think it should've been a Blue Macaws vs. Nigel and Gab iwith a Red Macaw army by their side. That's what I think.
I know I'm being very negative for the most part, but this is what I think. I don't think the movie's horrible by any means. I did find it memorable... but only on the humor side because I did think it was pretty funny; it did certainly make me laugh quite a few times. The story does work, but removing lots of the pointlessness would make this movie really short. So I guess they added this stuff to extend the movie. And I do think its score is pretty good. Unfortunately, that's all I can say about it. Regardless though, I do plan on getting the DVD when it comes out just because I'm a Rio fan, and I want to collect at least their movies. Speaking of which, I should do fan art of which, but I'm bad at drawing birds. Especially the wings.
Anyway. My score remains the same; 3/5. I'd say this film's better for kids and if you're an adult going to watch this, approach with caution then. By the way, did I mention that I was the only not-kid in that cinema that day? Excluding parents supervising their kids of course...
And that's it. I'll be back soon from Hong Kong with tons of art AND a new Sona.

Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen. I'm GamefreakDX. Not a very imaginative name, but anyway, I'm just here to draw... Mainly pony stuff because I'm a brony, even though I don't actually talk about it much. Feel free to traverse though my gallery of art.

A little notice too:
I do RP, but very rarely, and also, can no one please act as my characters. They're mine and only I'll act as them. This applies to my Sonas too.
Speaking of which, all of my Sonas are different from one another, but they all have the same personality (me), but not all get to experience the other's experience. So kinda of like 3 different cameras.

Random Time!

Why did I get a YouTube account?
Inniatially, I wanted to be a person on YouTube that uploads trailer videos- games and stuff. But then I ended up making all sorts of other game videos like Lets Plays and Reviews. As of recently, it's been the place where I upload my music, which is mostly game related.

Why did I join DeviantART?
I can't remember on the top of my head. I'll just say word-of-mouth, I saw Brony art and wanted to join in. Started off... quite badly honestly, but I persevered and now I'm also drawing more humanoid things which I'm getting better at. I didn't actually chose art for my GCSEs because according to a few people... it doesn't teach you that much art. I chose Graphics though which I liked. Now I'm doing an Art course in college...

Why did I join Soundcloud?
I joined Soundcloud because I wanted a better way to upload my music. I never chose music in GCSE. In fact, I never really showed much interest in music, but then I listened to some music from the Brony community and that... somehow, lead me to like more game music. Most of the musical work I do is chiptune and soundfonts. I'm not exactly good at it though, so don't expect epic stuff out of me.

When did I start animating?
Not long ago honestly. I just loved animations of like game characters or TV shows animations. Noticeably My Little Pony Friendship is Magic and Super Mario Bros. Z. Love them. Absolutely love them. I'm learning Flash now. Not easy, but I'm enjoying it so far. Plan to make primarily Sprite Animations.

How did I become a Brony?
I became a brony by watching an April Fools Sonic F. It was Camaraderie is Supernatural. I ended up liking the video and parody. So I decided to watch the original episode... and I really liked it. Well written, well animated and... great almost everything. I do think though, since Season 2 (when Lauren Faust left), the writing in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has gone down a bit and since Season 3... I haven't focused much on this show at all actually. I've moved on to other series in video games and on YouTube. I still draw ponies... and giant ones, yes, but it's not like I draw the canon ponies often.

It's quite simple. You note me the details of something you want me to draw. Unfortunately, requests are closed right now.

Rarely now. I only took these next few ones because I was originally going to open requests, but then I cancelled that, but I'm still doing these, but then not taking requests for (hopefully) a while.
Thanks for the watch though.
