The Good Dinosaur + Sanjay's Super Team

Zime's Ramblings

's'right. I went opening day.

Only slight spoilers. Nothing big.

:star: The Good Dinosaur
:bulletblue: Rotten Tomatoes: 80%
:bulletblue: IMDB: 7.7/10

I actually thought this was a pretty sweet little movie. I'm not sure why the internet h8ters were all over this one even a year before it came out, but that's the hate wagon for you.
I pretty much went into this movie blind because I hadn't really watched any of the trailers. I usually only watch Disney/Pixar trailers when I'm going to share it with my group, Disney-club, and since everyone was hating on this movie I didn't want to share a trailer that would just be shot down anyway.

What surprised me most about this movie is that it's a Western. I thought it'd simply be about the li'l dino trying to make it back home to his family in treacherous pre-history terrain, but I was wrong. It's really a classic Western; a boy (dino) and his dog (human) are sloughing their way through frontier terrain, meeting ranchers (T-rexes), grizzled old prospectors (triceratop) and banditos (raptors/pterodactyls) along the way.
If you don't know westerns, it's pretty much about a boy becoming a man.

The most off-putting thing about it for the adults watching would be that it's about dinosaurs that're basically cowboys and ranchers. But, I think that's one of those things you'll get used to the more you watch it. Plus the kids think nothing of it, so it's fine. And hey, it's hella more plausible than the world of Cars.

Something I saw everyone criticizing the movie about before it was even up on the big screen is the hyper realistic environments these very cartoony characters travel through on their adventure.
After seeing it, and as someone who's seen a bunch of Westerns in her time, I understand why. One of the big things about westerns is the awe-inspiring filming locales, and the locales in this movie were extremely beautiful indeed. Did it mesh perfectly? Ehhh, nah. But did it take away from the movie? Nah again.
I think it was fine, especially up on the big screen. Very impressive technology.  

The film also had a very impressive score by the Danna brothers. I'll definitely be looking up that one to buy.

Considering this little movie went through production hell to get up on screen, I think it came out very good. It's no Up or Wall-e, but still I fine film to watch with the family. You might even get a little choked up at certain parts.

Recommended, especially if you have kiddos, or love westerns and dinosaurs.

:star: Sanjay's Super Team
:bulletblue: Rotten Tomatoes: NA
:bulletblue: IMDB: 7.3/10

Actually, I think this might've been one of Pixar's finest shorts. It's about a little boy named Sanjay trying to watch his favorite super hero cartoon while his father tries to meditate. His father gets fed up with the noise and has his son meditate with him.
By the end of it, father and son have a new understanding of each other and it's verrrry sweet. :clap:
I can't say much more without spoiling it since it's only an 8 minute short, but I think y'all who go see The Good Dinosaur will really like it.

Just spent a few hours going back over your old comic (May the rain come.)  Still hard to beat the art and story you told. Jupiters coming along nicely as well. Dropped a request on FB as I check it more often than here, so that random request is me.

Hi! I don't know often you check your group messages but I came to tell you that I sent an email with my transpparent entry for the Mario collab because the one I posted to dA has a black backdrop and a drop shadow. Just wanted to tell you in case you weren't aware (that and I also forgot to write that it was me who sent the email, sorry XD)
