Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse.
"The Good Dinosaur" asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? In this epic journey into the world of dinosaurs, an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While travelling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.Written by
Arlo and his family are Apatosaurs. This is according to promotional materials; this name is never spoken in the film. Butch recalls an encounter with a Stegosaur, which he describes correctly. Both Apatosaurs and Stegosaurs went extinct before the point of divergence of this alternate history. (The Apatosaur goof could be mitigated by saying that Apatosaur is being used as a generic term for Sauropods, but the same cannot be said of Stegosaurs.) See more »
This sentence appears towards the end and is then encircled in a ring, like the human family towards the end of the movie: "We are grateful to the family and friends of The Good Dinosaur crew your love and support made this film possible." See more »
Don't listen to the bad reviews, it is a beautiful, heartwarming picture! Watch it!
I have never wrote a review for a movie before now, and I have written this because I am so annoyed with people's ignorance towards a good animated movie.
I watched 'the good dinosaur' yesterday at the cinema, not knowing what to expect as I had not looked at any reviews and I had only watched a 30 second trailer...
I entered the cinema with my mum and we were the only adults without children with us! So, before it started I was slightly sceptical, thinking that it was going to be very kiddish! Then the film started.. through most of the film, my mum and I were in tears! It is one of the most heartwarming, emotional, animated film I have watched and it really touched my heart, some of the scenes in the film were so brilliantly thought out to show real messages! There was one scene where I was in floods of tears, the scene dealt with a serious theme, but did it so brilliantly! (you'll know what I mean if you watch it!) I even came out of the cinema with my eyes still watering!
All I am saying is do not listen to the bad reviews. Most of them will be expecting something complex but, this film is really not about that! This film is inspiring! Especially for children! It is a simple film, but the subtle messages, such as overcoming your fears, the importance of family, and making your mark were heartwarming, and make you think, a lot!
And for those reviews that said the film scared their child? Well, I was in a cinema full of children ageing from 2-10, and throughout the film they were asking questions, laughing, and full of excitement! This film was very funny, but emotional at the right times, with a great plot that really makes you think! I believe this film was maybe not as good as, but came close to other Pixar films such as up and toy story. Yes, I know that these films have imaginative, classic plots, but this film teaches you a lot, and also makes you feel for the characters! So go ahead and watch! But don't listen to the bad reviews! Make up your own mind!
