Uplifting and emotionally powerful

"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

Pete's Dragon

1 year, 8 months ago at Sep 26 18:32
Disney’s love for orphans-in-the-wild was prominent in 2016 between this remake, their second live-action Jungle Book, and a journey into Roald Dahl’s macabre world in The BFG. All of them are best when detailing the quietest moments of the wild, imaginative lives of their urchins, especially Pete’s Dragon, and at their worst when kowtowing to the demands of special-effects heavy cinema.

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. First of all, I have to admit that I haven’t seen the original version but since it is also available on Disney+, I should eventually watch it at some point in the future. Anyway, to be honest, it took me a while to get into this story, above all, because it is a rather simple even generic tale. Indeed, by now, I have seen my share of tales about a kid bonding with a nice alien/monster/mythical creature. However, I have to admit that the gentle approach chosen by David Lowery slowly won me over though. There was also a rare sense of wonder, especially during the scenes involving a pitch-perfect Robert Redford and it is rather impressive that, from such a generic story, Lowery still managed t” read more

Pete's Dragon

“Disney’s love for orphans-in-the-wild was prominent in 2016 between this remake, their second live-action Jungle Book, and a journey into Roald Dahl’s macabre world in The BFG. All of them are best when detailing the quietest moments of the wild, imaginative lives of their urchins, especially Pete’s Dragon, and at their worst when kowtowing to the demands of special-effects heavy cinema. If I told you that Pete’s Dragon ended in the destruction of a bridge, lots of fire, and children in danger, would you say I was bullshitting? I’m not, but I wish I were.   Pete’s Dragon simply cannot hold the weight of thrills and spectacles of that nature. This is essentially a boy-and-his-critter story, one comprised of silence and connection, of exploring and acute observations. Personal” 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."

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: July (33 movies items)

"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"
