The Good Dinosaur (2015)
Good, but still kinda empty
The movie is good, but I wasn't satisfied. The idea is good, but the movie didn't have a real plot. And some things were unclear: Like, after Arlo's father died, he helped his mother. But where were his siblings? They were just gone. They only came at the very end.
Or when the humans were looking for Spot: I don't think that they were Spot's family, because Spot showed that he only had parents and no siblings. And if the siblings came later, they would be much younger than Spot. Also, they all have white hair, except Spot. So I think they're just other humans who adopted Spot. But still, it was unclear to me.
Here are some things, that I think could be different in the movie:
1. Pixar didn't tell us a lot about the characters. I expected to go really deep in the character's lives. For example, I really wanted to know how Spot's parents died. I mean, what if Spot's parents were killed by dinosaurs? That could be a perfect plot twist, because then Spot could have a fear. What if he saw the other dinosaurs and then suddenly remembered the death of his parents? The movie wouldn't be that boring with this point.
2. The dinosaurs were too human. Yes, Spot was too animal, but that doesn't bother me, because humans really were like Spot back in that time. Well, maybe not so aggressive to other animals. But the dinosaurs could have been more...dinosaurs. Or the T-Rex, they were too nice. Why? They didn't explain why they just didn't eat them.
Like you see, Pixar could have add key scenes, to reveal secrets of the characters. The movie would be so much more exciting.
I didn't even like the end. OK, Spot finds a new family and Arlo returns back to his home and that's all? They say about the movie, what if the dinosaurs survived; Could dinosaurs and humans coexist? Pixar didn't really answered that question. Only Arlo and Spot created a friendship and that's it. That's why I was expecting Spot's family to live together with Arlo's family. I was 100% sure this is going to be the happy end. But I was disappointed about that.
Movie is still watchable, great animations and some good, heartwarming parts, but not appropriate for anyone. It's a matter of taste.
Review by Vanessa
I see the movie today. So, when i see it it was funny.
The movie had cool ideas such as the radio or the lights in turbo. Such ideas bring good entertainment in the film. However, the makers have made at the beginning of the film a bit too long. So that was still okay with the lawn mower but it went a little long until the film has begun.
The characters were well done. Especially the behavior. A good gag was when the Spanish man who took two slugs and then singing along to music in the car. When the worm was always something going on. Only that it would have been great that turbo's friends had played more in the story.
The conclusion was made great because you always thought "Will he now?", "Will he win?" At the end there was just adrenaline and this makes the moment even unique.
It was a good idea :) with really funny gags ;)
