The Narrator: Once, upon the last day of a golden summer, there was a boy... and a bear. The boy, who we shall meet in a moment, was called Christopher Robin. The bear was called Winnie the Pooh. And together, they had many grand adventures in a remarkable place called the Hundred Acre Wood. But the grandest and most extraordinary of all those adventures was still to begin.

It's a decent flick
20 November 2014 | by oonaheartsnonny96See all my reviews

This is one of the films that I grew up with, so you can imagine all the childhood nostalgia I feel for this movie. I was actually a little surprised at how much people were complaining about the "dark elements" of this movie. I'll admit the Skull stuff is a little avant garde for Winnie the Pooh. However, there's plenty of other children's films that are dark and much worse than this. Something I really like about this film is that our characters travel beyond the Hundred Acre Woods to far off locations in order to "rescue" their human companion. The characters also get into peril in order to find themselves, which is actually pretty impressive for a kid's film. Overall, this is a great adventure that proves "you're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think".
