Whenever I attend a movie screening I get excited. Not knowing about how it’s going to turn out is half the fun. Once I watch a movie I try to share my feelings and thoughts on the film through social media and eventually blog posts. I also go to twitter at first. With 140 characters it gives me time to think and put down in words multiple things. Did I like the movie? If I did, WHY did I like it? What makes this film different? What is my take on it? 140 characters can sometimes be intimidating, but at the same time it can be very freeing so after my first full viewing of PIXAR’s The Good Dinosaur in LA last week I immediately took to twitter with my thoughts:

As you have seen in my previous posts about The Behind The Scenes of The Good Dinosaur PIXAR brought a whole new level of “painterly realism” to the film which captivates you throughout the film. The settings become characters themselves. However, as any PIXAR film should the most important part of the film is story and this story my friends will both bring laughter and tears. In the end the story is a simple one, yet one we all need to hear: It’s not about getting over your fears, but getting through them. Without spoiling the film you follow Arlo his companion Spot and their band of friends they meet along their journey. There is growth in Arlo has he learns the ins and out of growing up. Parents will love the coming of age parts and kiddos will cheer throughout. Some of the storm scenes are a bit severe so I recommend ages 6 and up. However, you know your child best. Either way after stuffing your face this thanksgiving head on over to local theater and make a family movie night and see The Good Dinosaur!
The Good Dinosaur

(voice of Raymond Ochoa) 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. Opens Nov. 25 2015
