Hi guys! I know months have already passed since 2015 ended, but I still haven’t posted my last entry for my 2015 Disney Movie Challenge. The challenge basically involves watching 10 movies released by Disney last year and writing a review for each. I only watched the last on my list, The Good Dinosaur, yesterday. So here’s the review to conclude my challenge! (Better late than never right?)
The Good Dinosaur is a Pixar film released last November and it is about Arlo, the youngest dinosaur in a family of five. He struggles to accomplish his tasks unlike his siblings which leads him to still not making a mark to his family. ( Which is symbolized by marking a mud-print on the family’s corn silo) This is because Arlo is really shy and a coward which even makes the simplest tasks harder for him. When tragedy strikes his father and he ends up away from his family, Arlo tries conquers his fears and finds his way back home. Along the way, he makes friends with a critter named Spot who didn’t have his family anymore. As the movie ended, the two parted ways because Spot found a new family where he belonged. Despite Spot not wanting to leave Arlo, Arlo insisted that Spot needed someone who understands him, a family where he belongs. Finally, Arlo was back home and he proved that he does indeed deserve a “mark”.
First things first, I thought that the graphics of the movie were really cute. Although there were some scenes that were a little cringe-worthy for kids, the movie was still good. My favorite scene would have to be the final hug between Arlo and Spot (the pic above!!) and it shows that there are times when we have to sacrifice for the people we care about. What I really loved the most was the message and theme of the film because it’s really inspiring. The movie teaches us that the only way to overcome our fears is to face it, and that is a sign of true bravery. A family friendly film that teaches good virtues, The Good Dinosaur should be on your movies-to-watch list!!
