It's a very nice film. The animation is very good, the actors are great. If you like these kinds of films, you will enjoy this one. The story is very good, and it has a lot of humor. The only problem is that the people of the town that are in charge of the animal's "pet," are a bit annoying and not very likable.

This film was amazing. I went to see it with my husband and 2 year old son, and the whole family loved it. It had great animation, funny characters, and an excellent message. My daughter loved the songs and even cried at one point. My husband, however, was disappointed that the good thing the film brought out was that the bad thing that the characters did. I felt that the film was good because of it's message and animation. It did have some points that you might not agree with, and I don't think that this film was meant to be taken serious, but if you watch it with a kid, I think it will be more fun and more educational than the Disney film that is out right now. I give this film a perfect 8 out of 10.

Now, I am a big Pixar fan. And while I am not a huge fan of their films, I am a big fan of their animation. I watched this film in an early showing at the cinema. I love the animation. There is no doubt about it. The CGI is absolutely breathtaking. The visuals of the forest and the animals is amazing. In the past, I have always found that Pixar has been able to stay with their animation through the animation. In this film, they did a perfect job with their animation. The only bad thing I have to say is the story. I would have preferred it to be more of a character story. In the past, it has always been a man and woman story. In this film, I have felt more sympathy for the dinosaurs because they have been animated. The story is great, but it isn't to everybody's liking. But I have to admit, I did really like it.

The Good Dinosaur is one of the biggest box office flops of all time, earning just 1.6 million dollars at the box office, and well short of 3.7 million dollars at the domestic box office. I know this movie had critics, but as the movie is almost devoid of character and story, they can not give it a lower rating than a 1.6. But when I watched it I had high expectations. The Good Dinosaur is about a big dinosaur named Sid who is looking for his parents. He is pursued by a group of scientists who think that Sid was born in a family of bad guys. When Sid gets picked on and follows one of them, the scientist decides to give him the first food ever, his parents. The scientist gets stuck on a big island, and the way he gets there makes no sense, and the movie just ended up getting worse. The Good Dinosaur has a lot of animation and good voice actors, but I have to say that the story was bland. I had to look over the story before I watched it, and I don't know if it made any sense. I also think the movie gets way to simplistic and predictable at the end, because the movie never really reaches a climax. The Good Dinosaur has a lot of beautiful animals, and a lot of scenes that are very funny, but the story is very bland and the characters are bland and the story is boring. I don't know if this movie was intended for children, but the movie had a lot of parents who left the theater early, and they were going to be the only ones in the theater when the movie ended. I guess it was the movie's fault. There is no heart and there is no soul, which makes it seem like it was made just for kids.

Movies that the kids will love. The adult will love the story. Kids will love the nostalgia. Adults will love the good, as well as the not so good, but very enjoyable, story. The movie I liked most was "Zootopia."

I enjoyed the movie for it's animation, and although the storyline is predictable and cliche, it was a nice break from the constant heavy handed political propaganda. The whole movie seemed like a dream. The ending was both a bit bizarre and a bit pathetic but it was still a pleasant surprise. My vote is 7 out of 10.

The Good Dinosaur is a charming and beautiful film with some great animation and a great story. If you like fantasy films or if you are looking for a story about dinosaurs, you should give this film a chance. There is a lot of science to the story and the animation is stunning. But the story is really weak and it is not great but it is still a good movie. I highly recommend it!

Disney has been moving away from their darker animated movies for a few years now. What the original animated films used to be is now a tad bit darker. Even though this movie is a family friendly movie, the adults will be moved by the special effects, the story and the soundtrack. I think the movie is a very touching one, which I think kids will get by the end. I hope the movie does well and I hope the fans like the movie. I think this is a great movie and I think they did a great job with it.

The Good Dinosaur is a delightful movie with a message about the wisdom of cooperation. It's based on a best-selling book by Roald Dahl and Steven Gould, and it's narrated by the film's star, Bradley Cooper. The plot is simple and easy to follow. Animals from the real world decide to settle in the fictional world of a dinosaur family, who have been fighting a war for the past 5 years. The film starts off with a distant shot of a beautiful blue-and-white picture of the Earth's interior, then the story starts. We see an 18-year-old girl (Mia Wasikowska) living in the fictional world of Willamette Falls. The girls grow up together, and they quickly form a friendship and form a family. In the final part of the movie, Willamette Falls is a rerun of its real-life counterpart. In this real world, two teenage boys (Ki'kuilas and Puff) are on a quest to become the dinosaur family's leader and have to join forces with two animals of the animal family (Rabbit and Peacock) in order to win their independence. The story is full of eye-candy and is adorable. It's a great story for the family. I loved it. It was beautifully written and had good pacing. It also has great animation, and the scenery is breathtaking. The characters are likable and also develop, so there is a lot to like about the movie. The director, Rich Moore, did a fantastic job with this film. He took the elements of the book and turned them into a entertaining, enjoyable film. He has a similar story to Aladdin, which is very similar to the book, but that's another story. I recommend this film to anyone. I gave it a 7/10.

I would have to say I'm a bit disappointed in the end of this movie. I thought it would be a very sweet ending to the movie, with the love between T-Rex and Hannah. Unfortunately the ending is not what I was hoping for, and I had to pull out my anxiety medication to help myself cope with the anger that I felt in the end. I really hope the second one will have a better ending, and I hope that they will do more in that series. I also hope that they don't do that with the sequel. I'm just really disappointed. I guess the ending to the movie was disappointing, but I guess that's what they're trying to get you to think about.

I think the best part of this film is definitely the beginning. It is a sweet film, and Disney really gets it right. The animation is gorgeous. The visuals of the film really suit the overall message and themes in the film. It is a story of faith, friendship, and the power of imagination. It is also a story of science versus religion. It is the first animated film that I have seen in which the science is not equated with the religion. The film also has a very nice message and message about the power of family. It is a perfect movie for the whole family. It has a happy ending and it is a film that a lot of people can enjoy. It also has a lot of emotional parts. It is a very charming film.

This is a visually splendid movie. And yet, you still feel the need to say, "Wait a minute, did that have to be made?" After all, this movie takes place in the world of Pixar. It is filled with many beloved characters, and I understand why some people might not like it. But, what did you expect? Disney is the best animation studio ever, right? I love the movies of Disney, I love the films of Pixar, but for some reason, I can't get into the worlds of these companies. Why? Because, all of them are infused with magic and mystery, and this movie has that. If you are a Disney fan, then you are going to love this movie, but, for some reason, the director of this movie, changed the tone of this movie in the last minute of this movie, and that is terrible. I'm still a fan of Pixar, but I do not love the movie. There are many Pixar films I enjoy, but I will never understand why so many people are crying for this movie. This is a great movie, and I highly recommend it. And yet, I still feel like this is a Disney movie. I love how the movie begins, and the way the movie ends, and how there is a little fairy tale about this movie. The first two minutes of the movie are excellent, the animation is breathtaking, and the action scenes are so well made. I love how there are so many characters and characters are used in such a great way. I love how you see the Pixar world. I also love the music. The music is amazing, and I love how there is a little Disney song. There are some great moments, and some great funny moments, but there is a lot of crying in this movie. There is not a lot of action in the movie, and there is not a lot of drama. But, the whole movie is magical, and I love it.

I really liked this movie, the voice acting was great, the animation was wonderful and the story was absolutely great. I really liked the plot and the ending is one of the best endings to be added to a movie. The funny thing about this movie is the way the story was pulled off. You feel that you are actually there in the movie, and the movie is very full of emotions and very real. The only thing that bugs me about this movie is that I'm tired of seeing Disney's movies be this way. Disney can make great movies and I hope that they are more aware of how to make movies. I hope that they will be able to make movies that are more realistic and less like Disney's. It's good to see that Disney is making movies for people over 12 because that makes it much more realistic and doesn't seem like it's just trying to make money. In all of Disney's movies I've seen that have been great the story hasn't been any better than in the first and second movie. I think that Pixar have got the best story in the whole world and I hope that Pixar continue to make movies like this and keep it up.

As a child, I always thought that the dinosaurs were just something silly. But when I watched this movie I realized that they are not only the subject of this movie, but also the origin of its writer, that he himself was inspired by them. His life's work of this movie was a tribute to these dinosaurs, and it is certainly one of the best animated films I have ever seen. The acting is quite good, especially by Billy Bob Thorton, who is quite convincing. The movie is not really a kid's movie, but definitely a movie for grown-ups. Some of the scenes are somewhat unrealistic, but what is important is the story. For the time being, the movie is a success, and it's probably the best dinosaur movie I have ever seen. It will stay a classic, and I hope it will be around for a long time. A+

I was very pleased with the movie. It was visually spectacular, and the characters were wonderful. Even though the plot of the movie wasn't perfect, I found it to be a refreshing change from the other Pixar films. It is the first Pixar movie where I actually got what was going on in the movie. I think this movie was more engaging than the previous Pixar movies. I highly recommend this movie to anyone. For anyone that has never seen a Pixar movie before, this will make you a fan. However, if you have seen any of their previous movies, this movie will disappoint you. The ending of the movie was not the best. But that's my opinion.

The Good Dinosaur tells the story of a young boy who finds a toy dinosaur named Diagonally opposed to his older brother's thought that Diagonally is a baby. Diagonally decides to stay with his brothers parents to be closer to him, Diagonally leaves the family to go to an island. The movie follows Diagonally on his journey of meeting other dinosaurs and finding his parents. The film is not as long as I expected, it is actually a very short film. The story is simple and easy to follow, The Good Dinosaur does a great job of making a 3D movie that will actually feel like it is a real dinosaur experience. The Best thing about The Good Dinosaur is the animation, it is truly a classic 3D animated film. The dinosaurs look great, the animals look great, and the movie is made very well. The Good Dinosaur is a great family movie that anyone would enjoy, it is a great film for kids, parents, or anyone who is a dinosaur fan.

A good-looking, clean Disney movie. While I enjoyed this movie, it did not break new ground or produce an emotional response. It's definitely better than the rehashed sequel, but in a similar vein, it's not as good as the first. I think the film was a bit too "cartoony", but it's still enjoyable and likable. As long as you don't expect anything out of the ordinary, this movie should be entertaining. It does stand out as a good example of what Disney can do. I would recommend this movie for everyone, but I think it's most enjoyable for younger children.

The Good Dinosaur is a film that follows a family as they try to get out of their isolated farm and live happily ever after. As the family gets closer to the land and its many natural wonders, they discover the world is much larger than they thought and that things are only as they appear. The film is completely harmless and enjoyable, if you're not looking for anything more than what it offers. The film was easy to watch, and if you want to have some fun, you're in for a treat. All the characters are likable and they're all fun to watch. I'm glad I saw the movie, but if I didn't, I would've had to give it a 0. My only real problem is that the movie doesn't offer anything particularly special. It's not completely bad, but it's not good. For all the film's praise, I feel like I wasn't entirely entertained.

Before I start this review I need to say that I was extremely surprised by how good this film was. The Disney Studio is very known for it's dark nature and I did not think it would be able to pull off a film that would be as good as this. All of the children in the film are cute and I especially liked the goat voiced by Oscar winner Matt Damon. I also thought the narration was done very well by voice actors. I have seen all of the Pixar films and this is easily the best one. The visuals were superb, the characters were very well done and the story line was very strong. This is a great movie for kids and I will be going back to see it many more times. This is a movie that I recommend and I think most kids will enjoy. Overall I would give it a 10 out of 10. If you are a Disney fan or you are a Pixar fan or even just a fan of animation or animals I would say go out and see this film.

When I went to see this film, I knew it would be an animated film with the live action kind of story. I wasn't disappointed at all. It had a good story and most of the characters were good. My favorite character was the platypus and I was totally excited to see it. I think the whole movie was good. It wasn't the best of the year, but it was better than I expected.

I can't imagine a movie being as close to perfection as this one was, if only for the fact that I really don't understand why this movie was a box office hit. This movie didn't have enough depth or character development to really make it as good as this, and it didn't have enough depth to make it as good as this. As a kid, I did love this movie, and I love Disney's other movies. But, as an adult, I couldn't really get into it. It's pretty hard to put into words what I'm saying, but I just couldn't get into this movie. I'm a huge fan of Disney, so I watched a lot of their movies growing up. They have grown as a company, but they also seem to have gotten very few out of them that are really good. Now, I know they had some really good movies in the 90's. But even though this movie is a really good movie, it doesn't have the heart or depth to make it a masterpiece like what this movie is. In my opinion, this movie was more like a Disney movie in the sense that there wasn't much focus on the characters or the story, but rather it was about dinosaurs. It was all about the dinosaurs, and I think that was the only good thing about this movie. All of the other characters were kind of underdeveloped, and there wasn't really much focus on them. There was a lot of talking, but it was just kind of dull. This movie just wasn't the same as it was in the 90's. I think that this movie could've been more better if they focused on the characters and the story more, rather than focusing on the dinosaurs. However, the heart and depth of the movie still shines through. It was just a really good movie that was kind of overshadowed by the bad aspects of it. I think this movie would be worth seeing if you are a fan of Disney, but I can't really recommend it to people who aren't fans of Disney. It has a good heart and it is a good movie, but there isn't enough depth to make it great.

I had high hopes for this movie because I love CG animation and I thought this was going to be a great movie. Boy was I wrong. It is not a bad movie, it is just too damn slow. I have seen animated movies that were so much more animated than this one. I have seen movies that are at least 30 minutes longer, I have seen animated movies that are 90 minutes longer and this was sooo much longer than I thought it would be. There was just nothing good about this movie. I don't know how they got people to watch this movie, but they did. I think this movie should be a one time watch because it is soooo slow and nothing happens. The story is not exciting, the characters are not interesting, and the story is very drawn out. I give this movie a 7 out of 10 because I would rather watch it in a fast forward and forget about it than pay money to see it in a theater.

The Good Dinosaur is a very funny film. But not a great film. If you want to watch a family film you would be better off with the movie The Good Dinosaur. This movie is filled with great humor and the dialogue is so funny you could watch the whole movie. The Good Dinosaur is a very entertaining film and if you are not too tired of watching animated films you will enjoy it very much.

I went into this movie thinking it was going to be another endless cartoon movie about the friendship of the two little dinosaurs and their adventures. But it was more. It was very engaging. I am glad it was about dinosaurs, not birds. I would have much preferred it to be a bird movie, but it was still a very enjoyable story. If you like dinosaurs, you'll like this. I've never seen a better animated movie. The best part was when the two little dinosaurs did their moves. It was extremely entertaining.

I really liked the beginning of the film and the fact that this is a really cute film. It is wonderful to watch a film where the audience gets to see a great movie. This movie is like a home movie of life, and I can really relate to how difficult life is and how hard life is and how lonely life is. However, this film wasn't exactly the most original one, which is good. It was kind of a predictable film but I don't think I ever saw the story from the beginning. In fact, the film did not really get me, I didn't really get into it and was sort of okay with it. I really liked how it was beautiful. It was very colorful and vibrant and sort of bright in a way that I really enjoy. I don't want to spoil it, but it was really beautiful. The music in this film was really nice and played on the screen, and I really liked it. I am not really sure how to get it, I am going to keep it under wraps, but it was really nice and I think that it played really nice on the screen. I liked the way that it was animated and I am not sure how to explain how the animation was done, but it was really good. I also liked the actors in this film. These were actually really cute and entertaining. None of the actors really bored me and the one I really liked was Matt Lucas, who was great in this film and did really good in the film. My favorite scene was the part where he goes to a friend's house to help them up. He finds a frog, he gets up and he says to the frog, "You've got to go!" I really liked the scene and I really like that scene. It was also really interesting, but I really don't know how to explain it. The one thing I really like about the film is the way that it tells a story. I think that there is a story there. I really liked the animation, the music, and the characters. I am not sure what I would have done with it if I had to re-make this film. I don't think that it would be as good as the original film, but it is good. It is just kind of boring. I really liked the characters, I really like the plot, but I don't really like the ending. I don't know why they have to end the film like that. It kind of annoyed me. I really liked the fact that the film is this nice, but it is also like a sad film. I think that they could have had the same ending and would have probably been a better film. Overall, I really liked the film, but it was not the most original one. I think that the film is worth seeing, but it is not the most original one, so I am giving it a 7. I would recommend that people watch it, but I would probably not recommend that it be watched again.

The Good Dinosaur tells the story of Elly (voiced by Mindy Kaling), a young girl that has never been through a change of clothes. Throughout her childhood, she is left to fend for herself by her overprotective parents. As the years pass, she is able to befriend other animals and learn about them. Elly soon decides to use her time to try and make friends with other animals. In this way, she begins to learn about life and friendship. As her friends get older, the story begins to focus more on Elly. As time goes on, she learns about the meaning of friendship, but it's always with the consequences of choice. The Good Dinosaur tells the story of Elly and tells the story of her growing up and learning about life. The film uses an unconventional way of telling the story. The animators cut off parts of the film in order to tell the story. Each time the story is cut off, a new piece of the film is added. When this is done, it creates a unique sense of discovery. The animals that are introduced in the film are full of life. They can talk, play, and act. The characters interact with each other, but they never forget to talk to Elly. In the end, the movie has an underlying message of life and friendship. Although the animation is crude, the message and the message of friendship is delivered perfectly. I am still trying to figure out the film's message. I am still trying to figure out what is the message. The voice acting was very good. All of the voices matched the characters' voices perfectly. On the negative side, the voice acting is a little clunky. The writers are trying to convey the message through the words rather than the animation. However, I feel that this was not the case in the end. The Good Dinosaur does have some issues, but the animation is worth it.

This is not really a kid's movie, but it's cute. It is quite a bit older than the average family movie, and it is a great movie for children and teens.

This film is very refreshingly different than your typical children's film. The animation, music, acting, and characters were all excellent. The story was very interesting and unique. The film was full of laughter and light hearted humour and in a good way. The characters were also incredibly endearing. I enjoyed all the characters but especially the eagle. It had such a mature and loyal personality. I am a bird lover and also a big fan of action films. This film is a great family film and I recommend it highly.

The movie starts out great, and is full of heart-warming, interesting, funny, and funny, special effects. I was very pleased with how much of the film is CGI, and it shows. The film also has some amazing voice-acting, especially from Michael Cera and Ansel Elgort. I didn't mind, as the voice acting is fine. It's the real-world scenes that are a bit corny, and maybe a bit boring sometimes. It has some funny moments, but that is because I laughed throughout the film. It's not a movie to be taken seriously. Overall, I recommend this movie, and I'd say that it is a must-see movie. It was very well done and very funny. And it's an absolute classic.

So I just came back from seeing this film, I was very impressed. I'm not sure what to say other than this is one of the most visually appealing films I have ever seen. It is so beautiful, and I felt the heart of the movie was there. And this movie is very much a baby in its storytelling, so it's very short. It has a good story that has a few strong parts that we know we will like, the end is very tragic, but it is sweet and enjoyable. This film is a family movie, because the child is almost made into a character. I don't really know what to say, but I would recommend this movie to anybody who likes Disney movies. It is beautiful and the ending is very nice.

My wife and I had been looking forward to seeing this film for quite a while, but we didn't have high hopes for it. In fact, we were pleasantly surprised. I had never heard of the film until I went to see it, and I am very happy that I found this movie enjoyable. I really liked the characters, and I thought the story was good. My wife thought it was silly, but that's not really what she is going to say about any movie, so I will just say that. I am a big fan of animation, and I thought this was a great movie. It was fun and entertaining. I hope I can see it again sometime soon.

With such an expansive scope and such a complex plot, what could possibly go wrong? When this movie released I was quite sure it would be a stinker. Well, I didn't have high hopes. I was absolutely shocked at how much I enjoyed this film. It's not perfect. Some of the humor is not fully integrated. It has a few moments of cliche, but most of it is still very funny. In my mind the main character, named Nick (voiced by Owen Wilson) has been fairly written, and it's hard to imagine a more appealing lead character. He's fun, silly, and occasionally desperate. However, the film is not without its problems. I have to be honest and say that I felt like this movie was an adaptation of the infamous Pixar cartoon and it had many of the same elements. It takes places in modern day Wyoming. The landscape is very colorful and full of wildlife. A man named Nick Crane (voiced by Chris Pratt) is trying to find his son Robbie (voiced by Michael Cera) and trying to stay healthy. He eventually encounters some prehistoric animals that he believes to be his children. The most common animal in the film is the coyote, but there are also dogs, wolves, bears, and a variety of other creatures. Nick goes to the waterfalls where his son is supposed to be and discovers that he is missing. There is another, older, dinosaur that is very similar to the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the film's antagonist is an unnamed giant dinosaur. Throughout the film I kept thinking to myself that they didn't actually have dinosaurs for the most part. I was very disappointed in the fact that I did not find one dinosaur in the film. The best part of this film is the humor. Owen Wilson's voice-over acting is spot on. Some of the humor is written well and the characters are generally likable. Some of the jokes were funny, others were not. This is one of those films where you have to be a Pixar fan. Some of the jokes are extremely cliche, but most of them are still hilarious. Another thing I liked was how the film takes place during the Jurassic Park era. This film is not nearly as cliche as the previous one. It was definitely darker and even had some surprising plot twists that were quite intriguing. The dinosaurs in this film were as amazing and as beautiful as they were in the previous films. Even the CGI wasn't as good as the previous ones. The dinosaurs in this film look more realistic, but I would not call it visually stunning. The dinosaurs here have a more realistic look to them. There are also many scenes where the dinosaurs looked nothing like the previous films. It definitely isn't a film for kids. I think some parents may not appreciate the tone this film takes. It has very serious themes throughout the film. This film does have some serious themes and although I am not a big fan of the subject matter, it's still a good film to watch with your kids. Overall, I think this film is a very likable film. If you have not seen it and you enjoy the animation, animation style, or just think that you might be a Pixar fan, go see this film. You will be pleased. I give this film a B-.

I saw the Good Dinosaur last night and I was pleasantly surprised. The story and plot were absolutely fantastic. It seemed like it had the plot and characters to be an amazing film, but unfortunately it was not. I think the biggest problem with the film is that it seems to not know what it wants to be. It is obviously going for the kids, but when it is not in the movies, it tries to be something else. There were parts of the film that I really enjoyed and there were parts of it that I didn't. I really thought the dinosaurs and humans would become friends, and at the end they do, but the kids are still rivals. I also thought the jokes were poorly executed and the jokes were good, but not great. I think the jokes were maybe good for kids, but not as good as they are when adults see it. In addition, there are some parts of the film that were just downright awful. For example, when Ben is looking for his car, he finds it. There is a scene where it is a certain size, but when he finds it, he realizes it is so big, and he gets a big happy look. In fact, when he is trying to use his phone at the restaurant and his hand is cut, and he thinks it is just another phone, he says to the waitress, "I think my hand is gone!" And in the same scene, when the waitress is trying to read the paper, her hand is cut. In the same scene, the other waiter looks at Ben, and Ben says, "Where's my hand?" and says, "It's gone!" I think those are some of the biggest examples. Another thing that was bad was when the two dogs are getting a snack, and the dog says, "Go ahead. Take it." When the dog is eating it, the dog actually tells him "Take it." And it was done with such a stupid way. Like he was saying, "Take it" as if he had just eaten it. I thought it was a horrible, terrible thing to do. I do not want my dog to be treated like that. Even though the dogs were showing affection towards the dog, I thought that was completely unnecessary. I also felt like the movie took a bad turn after the second act. It was ending and the narrator said, "And that was the last day of the dinosaur world." There was a lot of things that seemed confusing, like when they get to the park and the children said, "The dinosaur world is closed, it's closed!" and Ben said, "Wait. There's no dinosaur world?" and the narrator said, "Wait. There is." The narrator went on to say, "We all had an adventure." Well, that is something the children would say. And then later, when the narrator said, "And that's the last day of the dinosaur world." I just thought that was completely confusing. I also felt like the ending was very rushed and cheap. If they had just done the second act and told the kids what had happened, I think that would have been better. Also, it was hard to follow the plot. I'm not sure if that was intentional, but it just seemed like the entire plot was rushed. Overall, I did not like the film, but I don't think that was the main reason why I did not like it. I think if I had seen the film in theaters, I probably would have enjoyed it more. The movie is not perfect, but I think it is certainly worth watching. If you see it in theaters, I think it would be worth watching.

What a delightful surprise to find myself actually watching the story again after all these years! Absolutely gorgeous to look at and an utterly delightful story, I enjoyed it very much. I'm sure the makers of this film are incredibly proud of it, and I look forward to more of their work. Even though this story is set in South Dakota, it could just as easily be anywhere. The actors and actresses in the film were all great in their roles, and the story was very moving, and the voice talent were very well chosen. The children were great, and I loved their personalities and personalities, which I can't say for many kids animated films nowadays. For example, the main character was a little child, but was a lot of fun to watch. The wise baby who helps the characters when they're trying to escape the building. The tiger who was tough and took a beating. The big lizard who's good at everything. All were very believable and very well played. I thought the overall story was great, and I hope they keep making more films like this. They're all excellent, but this was very, very good.

From The Land of Oz, where an inexperienced middle-aged human asks the big and wise Tin Man, who is a hired hand, to teach him the ways of the forest, to navigate life and death, comes the Good Dinosaur. In a world of corny little green creatures, the Good Dinosaur is our hope of a way out of all this. In an unfamiliar land, the newcomer must adapt to society and find his way. In the Good Dinosaur, Glee's Neil Patrick Harris brings life to the title character with ease. He makes it clear that we're not just seeing Glee characters, we're seeing a young boy trying to grow up and fitting in. That the American Girl Girlie Cult was made for him was not an overstatement. He makes his characters strong, but the real stars of the movie are the dinosaur and the human. There is a wonderful dynamic between these two creatures, as we see how the human can be captured by nature and how the dinosaur can be captured by the knowledge of nature. The human can tell when a dinosaur has "gone crazy", as he tries to get away. The human can understand and feel the love of the dinosaur, and the two become closer than ever. The movie is a wonderful journey of discovery for the human, and a great allegory for growing up. The relationship between the two is perfectly balanced and the movie ends with a beautiful ending. It's a film that's both great and poignant, and is a must see for all ages.

I had the pleasure of viewing this movie on the big screen. I enjoyed it immensely, it was the first time I felt like I was in the park and not in my hometown of the near future. It was also the first time I really understood what the Jurassic Park franchise is all about. I do feel that the plot is a little weak, but it is nice to see that most of the movie is pretty original. The movie is definitely geared towards a younger audience, which is a good thing as it does it's job very well. The kids will love it and the adults will enjoy it. I think that they did a great job of making a movie that is engaging, not only for the adults, but for the kids. The animation is incredible, it truly is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. The voice acting is great as well. The film is still short, which is nice to have, and the last 30 minutes are my favorite parts in the movie. It was so moving to see a little more about how the dinosaurs ended up in the park. It is a shame that this movie will not be in theaters, it would have been perfect as a short film. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who is not already familiar with the Jurassic Park franchise.

I think my main problem with this film is that the script is as perfect as a "Love at First Bite" sort of movie. It's a wonderful movie with an incredible story that the writers just took and ran with. I really wanted to like this movie more. But I don't want to give it a bad review because I know it's great. I think Disney has the capability to make some really great films with the right script and a great director. It's like they need to learn from their mistakes a bit more, and maybe use some real A-List talent. At least this film has a few actors who I think can do some big things. I'm also looking forward to seeing some truly great films like Moana or Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I think this film is a shining example of why Disney is a very, very important company. The movie was great, and I'm very proud to be one of the few people who thinks it's great.

After seeing this film I was blown away, not only is the animated movie brilliant, it was honestly one of the best Pixar movies I've ever seen. The story and tone of the film is engaging, and unlike other animated films the story never feels too dull or rushed. The characters were unique, some of them I was already very familiar with and I would definitely see them in other Pixar films, such as Ratatouille and Up, but they are perfect for their roles in this film. The voice actors also did a great job in their roles. Jack Black was awesome, I'm not a big fan of his voice but I loved how he portrayed the 'deer dude'. Zoe Bell was great as usual, she was like the perfect voice for Ellie. The voice actors also added a lot of emotion into their characters, especially Jack Black's, and this was awesome because the movie isn't just about the animals, it's about Ellie, and in the scene with the speechless fish, there is a lot of emotion put into this scene that is perfect for Ellie's personality. The animation was outstanding, it's even more amazing when you compare it to the animation from other Pixar films, in the beginning of the film it is just incredible, but as the film progresses, it becomes more and more detailed and realistic. This film is one of the most thought provoking animated films I've ever seen, and is one of the best animated movies I've ever seen, and the overall animation is top notch, from the birds to the plants and the sky, it is incredible. The characters are fantastic, and Jack Black's character is perfect, he is very lovable and I'm glad I bought this on DVD because I am going to watch it again and again, and I don't think I will ever get tired of it, just like the rest of the film. The only bad part about the film is that some parts of the film just don't work and it seems a bit slow, but if you are like me and you like fastpaced movies, and don't mind slow films, this is one of the best films I've seen in years.

A fantastic film from Pixar. Don't let the box office figures fool you, this is one of the most underrated movies of 2014. Not only does the story unfold in a manner reminiscent of a movie that uses a musical score, but it also has an unbalanced heart. Pity the Pixar crew didn't take the film to a wider audience, who would've taken a great shot at a higher rating. 7.7/10

While not all 3D films are necessarily on par with the other 2D films, with a few exceptions, they tend to be a little bit better, but still fall short of the greatness of the previous two films. This time around, Pixar has followed up with their follow up to WALL-E, and the original animation in that film was flawless. In the film, we see the creation of Dory, a girl named after the giant fish that all of his family members want to get out of the ocean. While the 3D animation on this film is simply beautiful, it is lacking in some areas. One area is the environment, which you would expect to be very captivating. Unfortunately, there was not nearly enough for me to get excited about. The biggest flaw in this movie is the script, which is very cliched, especially in the beginning. In this film, it is mentioned that Dory was unhappy with her family, and a lot of things that happen in the beginning are just straight out of the same old plot from Pixar movies. Even the characters, which are quite likable, feel a little flat. The voice acting in this film was brilliant, and it helped get the most out of the visuals. But as with the 3D animation, the voice acting could not capture the emotions and depth of the characters. There is a lot to like about the acting, but it just could not really match up to the visuals. In the end, this film has many of the things that make Pixar movies what they are, and some of the things that they do not. But as I said before, there were some things that were brilliant and others that were mediocre. I'm not going to give it a perfect score because, like I said, I would have liked to have seen more depth in the characters, more excitement in the story, and better voice acting. Overall, a fine movie, but lacking in some areas.

Let's get one thing straight here. I am not a fan of animation, but I really enjoyed this movie. I laughed, I cried, and I even held my breath for a few minutes. All in all, this was a very heartwarming story, and a solid family film. Of course it was not perfect, but then again, it was intended to be a "children's" film. It's not supposed to be as great as Pixar's movies, or even DreamWorks'. The story is as simple as it can be. A boy named Homer goes to a dinosaur theme park to find his dad. He makes his way to an enclosure, where he discovers that dinosaurs have disappeared. He follows the tracks of the dinosaurs, to find out where his dad is. And after a long journey through the park, Homer meets his dad again. The parents try to hide the truth about their missing son from their little boy. Eventually, the parents discover that their son is gone, and want to hide him, in order to keep his secret from him. So, how did this movie turn out? Well, it was a great movie, and I can't wait for the sequels to come out. To be honest, I didn't think the story was that original, but it was pretty well written, and the storyline was fun to watch. A few people have already criticized the film because of its over-the-top animation. While it was certainly very funny, I don't really think it was that great. But I do appreciate the idea behind it, and it was pretty creative. All in all, a fun family film. Go see it, and I think you will enjoy it. The characters are funny, and the voice acting was amazing. Now, for the negatives: There are just some things about the film that I found to be kind of cheesy. I found myself laughing at the jokes, but I was able to overlook that, because I did enjoy the film as a whole. Now, I have to say that I think that the characters are all great. My favorite characters are Ricky and Homer, but they do give some great performances. The kids in the film also did a great job. The ones that aren't funny are really the ones that are just bad, because they say some bad stuff. All in all, I think that this is a great movie. It's not going to be for everyone, and it's not a perfect film, but I think that you can see what it's meant to be. If you can't understand that, then you probably can't like this movie. It's not going to be for everyone. But it's still a very good movie, and I hope you give it a chance. And of course, if you like Dinosaur movies, then you'll probably enjoy this as well.

One of the better Pixar films that I have seen. However, I would be lying if I said it was a masterpiece, as it has many flaws. My biggest complaint is the animation. I do not know if that was intentional or not, but the main character's body language was not the most animated in the world. The character of the dog did not look that much different than the one in the Aladdin movies. The rest of the animation in this film was very well done. The characters were colorful and dynamic, but the character of Piggly Wiggly was extremely flat. However, the best thing about this film was the voice acting. All the actors were good in their respective roles. The voice of Jake was great, and it is very easy to relate to the character. Ellie was voiced by the adorable Alyson Hannigan, who I also thought was good in her role. Gipsy was voiced by the hilarious Sally Kellerman. Wilem the eagle was voiced by the wonderfully funny Rosie O'Donnell. The four dogs were excellent as well, especially when they ran away. I think the story is engaging, and the animation is very good. This film was directed very well by Pete Docter. The story was well done, and the script was very well written. However, the ending felt incomplete, and it left me wanting to know more about the characters. I also thought it could have been a little bit longer to be more interesting. I have to say that I enjoyed this film, and I think it is the best Pixar film to date.

I must admit that I am a sucker for animated movies. Whether it be Disney's "Aladdin" (2003), Pixar's "Up" (2010) or Dreamworks' "Big Hero 6" (2014) or even the equally cute "The Incredibles" (2008) this movie has just never failed to impress me. With a great cast and talented directors they've produced a lot of films that have moved me. This is another film that has moved me and that's because I've seen it several times and I still can't get enough of it. That's not to say that I liked it as much as the previous movies I've seen but I do believe that I've seen it as a lot of different people. This is the first time that I've seen the cast and the direction of the film so many years ago and I'm still pretty impressed. The story is a children's book that the voice actors and the director come up with. The idea is that a bird who grew up in the family's garage and the next door neighbor's home are talking to each other and talking about stories and situations. It is now the bird's idea to have a very special friendship. With the help of the dog and the neighbor's dog the bird gives them the power to talk with other birds in the area and fly to other bird's nests to be a part of the bird's friendship. Now it's up to the bird to come up with the money for the plane to get to new locations. While the movie does have some cute and funny moments it is also pretty scary and some parts are very disturbing especially when the birds are talking about them. But, I must admit that I was very impressed with the animation and the story. I don't think it's as good as the previous films but it's definitely still worth seeing. The voice actors really do do a great job and I think it's a safe bet that I'll be seeing them again in the future. Overall, I think it's one of the best animated movies of this year and I can't wait for the next film to come out in 2018. It was recommended to me by several people and I really hope that it will be up to par with the rest of the year.

Although not as good as the previous film, the story still has enough to keep viewers engaged. The film has a visual style that compliments the story well. The Pixar film has several stunning scenes, that are difficult to watch with the emotions of your brain. It was a shame that it was such a big success, it could have made so much more.

This is a beautiful film that is loved by all. Beautiful and creative, the animation is breathtaking and unforgettable. The book I read and loved was the 2nd volume of the Pixar book. The animation is fantastic. The voices of the main characters are wonderful. The animation is beautiful and the characters, emotions and voice performances are adorable. This is a great family film that is fun, exciting, and filled with a wonderful message. It is such a great family film. It is about following your dreams and sticking to them no matter what. This film will definitely touch your heart and please you with its message.
