Almost a year ago I did see the remake by David Lowery and since I did like it, I thought I should watch this original version at some point, especially since it was available on Disney+. The interesting thing about this movie was that it was one of the few early attempts from Disney to mix live-action with some animated characters, something which has become pretty common nowadays thanks to the r... read more

"Kidnapping plays a really huge part in the film, and does the idea of said kidnappers are his abusive adopted parents. Also, the teacher in the film, is pretty mean as well. But, aren't they always?"

“Almost a year ago I did see the remake by David Lowery and since I did like it, I thought I should watch this original version at some point, especially since it was available on Disney+. The interesting thing about this movie was that it was one of the few early attempts from Disney to mix live-action with some animated characters, something which has become pretty common nowadays thanks to the rise of the CGI technology. Well, apparently, it wasn't really a success when it was released but, since then, it has become more or less a cult-classic but, to be honest, I really struggled to care about the damned thing. Eventually, I don’t know what bothered me the most, the fact that the tone was just so sweet, it was borderline syrupy, or the fact that the story was actually pretty weak. I m” read more

"Disney musical which mixes live action with animation, as a young boy moves into a coastal town with his pet dragon, Elliott. Causing all kinds of trouble, the dragon becomes the interest of an unsavoury conman. While the cast gives it plenty of welly, the songs are unmemorable and the animation isn't as exciting as Mary Poppins or Bedknobs and Broomsticks. The recent remake was much more of a touching tale."

""Brazzle Dazzle Brilliance!" "His name is Elliott. He's 20 feet high, 40 feet long. He can become invisible at the drop of a hat, or spew red hot flames. In fact, there's only one way to bring this awesome beast under control... rub his tummy.""
