Sheep Movie Review: The Good Dinosaur

The Good Dinosaur
Directed By: Peter Sohn
Rated PG
Cast: Raymond Ochoa, Jeffery Wright, Sam Elliot, Anna Paquin

"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.

I honestly didn't have much desire to see this film, for whatever reason it just did not look like one I would fancy. Maybe it was because the powers that be decided NOT to over saturate the market with constant adds. Kinda like the Star Wars film coming soon (Which I am totally going too see cause those trailers look amazing!), my personal reasons aside I was reluctant to sit through this animation.

Oh, how wrong I was! Talk about a heartfelt story, this one has tenderness and triumph in spades. Not only was this a story about dealing with great loss but finding the courage to face your fear. Real tangible fear and the fears of failure we each have inside us at times. I mean, life can just be scary! Kids and adults alike can certainly relate to this theme. The writers do an honest to goodness job of making it realistic and relatable to anyone.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I cried during the film. A few times, and by that I mean three. Three times I cried! I know it's just me, since any animated movie can bring me to tears. But I did see grown men getting a little choked up at spots. This just shows me that the heart strings of an audience were hit and a message was received.

I recommend this one to those of you who love a heartfelt story, with hidden moments of comedy and a tale for the ages.

  1. I love animated movies, but I admit, the trailers didn't do a thing for me. Thanks for the review --- I'll give it a chance!

  2. I think it looks so cute, but I don't go to the movies much. I'll wait for it to come to TV.
