Pete’s Dragon (Written Review and Trailer)

PETES DRAGON postger

 

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Although it is about Pete and Elliot the dragon, Pete’s Dragon is a far cry from the live action and animated musical that we loved and filled our dreams as children. This Pete’s Dragon has a modern twist that sets even PG viewers on the edge of their seats. From the opening scary car crash involving Pete’s parents, to the hostile way they have to capture Elliot the dragon, the film spans a mystery, adventure and fantasy that both endears and shocks.

1985: The Last Great Year in Film for Younger Audiences

March 6th, 2015 No comments

Generations of Americans can still remember a time when parents and their kids could go to the multiplex and enjoy original youth-oriented films that weren’t either animated, part of a billion-dollar superhero franchise, or adaptations of overwrought young adult novels.

Best and worst movies of 2014

December 22nd, 2014 No comments

Out of sheer contrarian perversity, I did everything I could to avoid picking “Boyhood” as the year's best film. It has been lauded so much already; its hype, the increasingly heavy burden of awards-generated expectation, has turned into this gentle masterwork's worst enemy.

The violent truth about kids' movies

December 18th, 2014 No comments

Kids’ movies are no walk in the park.
