Review: ‘The Little Prince’ Is A Mostly Perfect Adaptation

This film adaptation can’t live up to the book but then again how could it? However that being said the first half of the film is nearly perfect. However in the second half after they’ve run out of parts of the book to adapt and it fully becomes the film’s story; it loses a lot of interest. People who have not read the book will probably not be as bothered by the fans. Even though it is flawed it’s clear the filmmakers loved the book and tried very hard to capture it and for the MOST part they did. I give it 4 out of 5 stars on a string.

Review: “Thunderbirds Are Go!” Series

Fans (as evidenced by other reviews) will probably dig the “Thunderbirds Are Go!” While newcomers like myself will probably have a difficult time getting into it. Will a modern audience of children get into the series? It’s hard to say, but I have my doubts that this would have been a show I would have watched. Even for a kids show this feels a bit shallow. I could see very young audiences become fans, and as far as kids shows go it’s not something that I think would be bad for them. I give it 2.5 stars out of 5.

Review: ‘The Good Dinosaur’ is Emotionally Satisfying

The story may be simple and done before but Pixar shows why it’s the king with how it tells its story. The beginning is a little sluggish but once it gets going it is quite enjoyable.

Though it never quite feels as emotionally satisfying as the other Pixar greats, its expert craftsmanship makes you realize it doesn’t need to. I give it 4.5 stars out of 5.
