Mars Movie Reviews – The Good Dinosaur


Move Info: “The Good Dinosaur” asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?  Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend.  While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.

Mars Review:  In 2015, for the first time in the company’s history, Pixar released two films.  One of them was wonderfully delightful.  The other was The Good Dinosaur.  Stories and characters have always been the backbone of the best Pixar films. The digital landscapes are breathtakingly beautiful, while I can certainly marvel at the realistic computerised water and mountains in the movie, I don’t go to the movies to marvel at computerised water and mountains.  The Good Dinosaur never comes together as a coherent whole as a story, a crucial flaw for a film by Pixar, which has always put story first.

Stars: 2 out of 5
