In a world where dinosaurs and humans live side-by-side, an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend.

The Good Dinosaur.
The Good Dinosaur.

Before seeing this movie, I had heard that it was going to be the first box office loss for Pixar, at least from an Australian point of view, that might have been in part because before the movie was released, I didn’t see a trailer on TV for the movie until after it’s release and even then it was only once or twice.

I loved this movie. Was it Pixar’s best? No but it definitely isn’t their worst!

It’s your typical Pixar film; has the laughs, the feels, the action, the drama and the tears (and boy were there tears!). Also in typical Pixar fashion, the detail in things like the dinosaur scales, hair and everything else is amazing.

The story was awesome with a brilliant concept, the voice work was spot on and the animation was colourful and beautiful.

If you are a fan of Pixar’s previous works, you should give it a watch despite what you might have heard. This will definitely be something I purchase and watch again.

CHAPPY THINKS you shouldn’t listen to those negative reviews, this movie is no Tyrannosaurus wreck!
