"You don't have to run anymore, Pete. You can stay with us."2016's Pete's Dragon is a Disney movie through and through. It's a formulaic endeavour from a narrative perspective, and the characters are predominantly standard-order, including some antagonistic archetypes. In addition, it's a remake of a motion picture from 1977, and remakes are rarely necessary. But hell, I'll be damned if it doesn't... read more

I have been wanting to watch this for awhile. I remember seeing the original as a kid and loving it. I told myself I would wait to watch it with my wife though. So when it popped up on Netflix I told her that's what we would watch. It had been awhile since I had seen the trailer so I forgot all the big names that were in it. This was written and directed by David Lowery who did the very serious Ai... read more

You know......for kids! (147 movies items)

"It's considerably somber, the bad guys motives are less than subtle, and child abandonment takes center place in the film. But at least, the dragon is cute."

"First viewing - July 20th I know at some point in my childhood I watched the original Pete's Dragon, but I haven't seen it since the '80s & therefore couldn't tell you anything about the plot points anymore. I know there was a boy & a dragon who was a cartoon, but that's about it. I'd heard good things about this version, so I was willing to give it a chance. I thought maybe the kiddo would watch it with me, but she's not interested and honestly after watching it I don't think she's missing muc"

“I have been wanting to watch this for awhile. I remember seeing the original as a kid and loving it. I told myself I would wait to watch it with my wife though. So when it popped up on Netflix I told her that's what we would watch. It had been awhile since I had seen the trailer so I forgot all the big names that were in it. This was written and directed by David Lowery who did the very serious Ain't Them Bodies Saints. So for him to do a movie for children is a major difference. As for writer Toby Halbrooks I haven't heard of him or seen his other film. So I'm really hoping this will be as good as the original or somewhere close.

Well this was a very good movie. Of course it's Disney so they had to have a few details that'll make you sad. I was kind of pissed to be honest that E” read more

“"You don't have to run anymore, Pete. You can stay with us."

2016's Pete's Dragon is a Disney movie through and through. It's a formulaic endeavour from a narrative perspective, and the characters are predominantly standard-order, including some antagonistic archetypes. In addition, it's a remake of a motion picture from 1977, and remakes are rarely necessary. But hell, I'll be damned if it doesn't work. Another step in Disney's grand plan to transform their animated catalogue into live-action movies (the original Pete's Dragon was only partially animated, mind you), this reimagining does away with all the singing, dancing and mugging in favour of a more dramatic, heartfelt feature. Pete's Dragon is simply enchanting; an incredibly poignant and engrossing family film with shades ” read more
