Beautiful and emotional tale

2 years, 6 months ago at Aug 5 5:24
I remember seeing this movie as a kid, and I loved it even then. I was a fan to the Casper cartoons, and to me, this was a great movie. As a kid, it was just entertaining. Looking at it again as I am older, I now love this movie more than just because it's about my favorite friendly ghost. This movie does a good job clenching the issue of death and either letting it go and hang onto it as a ghost ... read more

Relies too much on visual style rather than plot

'Casper' is a children's movie based off the Casper the Friendly Ghost comic books and cartoons. This movie is not a bad adaptation but it puts too much work into visual style and not enough into plotting!

200 & 99 Of My Favorite Films From The 1990's (299 movies items)

"The supernatural world collides with the natural world when live action meets animation in this tale about a kid who can see dead people. But in a cute, heartwarming way, considering that this is a film for all ages and is centered on the friendliest ghost you know. "

Relies too much on visual style rather than plot

“'Casper' is a children's movie based off the Casper the Friendly Ghost comic books and cartoons. This movie is not a bad adaptation but it puts too much work into visual style and not enough into plotting!

'Casper' features cutting edge visual effects and a great visual style. It features some decent acting from the lead roles (Christianna Ricci and Bill Pullman) but unfortunately it's not enough to save the boring plot and dull script. It has some funny moments but why does Dr. James Harvey (Bill Pullman) have to express being gay in front of children. I'm not being homophobic but as a kid's movie, James should kiss the ghosts in his own time! I do love the appearence of Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) from 'Ghostbusters' though as he says "Who ya gonna call? Someone else!". However t” read more

Beautiful and emotional tale

“I remember seeing this movie as a kid, and I loved it even then. I was a fan to the Casper cartoons, and to me, this was a great movie. As a kid, it was just entertaining. Looking at it again as I am older, I now love this movie more than just because it's about my favorite friendly ghost. This movie does a good job clenching the issue of death and either letting it go and hang onto it as a ghost with unfinished business. The atmosphere, although often times comical (which is how it is with the cartoons too XD), has a really deep and emotional air to it, as we look at Dr. Harvey and Kat's loss at the wife/mother's death, as well as Casper's mourning for his life and loneliness as a ghost. The music itself is very beautiful, and the set gives a perfect background for both spooky and sentime” read more

Don't Make Me Watch This! (43 movies items)

"Never was a fan of the cartoon, Judging from the swearing, the dullness and the unfaithful cameos, I say only watch the Nostalgia Critic's classic review."
