The Good Dinosaur: Size ain’t Matter

by Devina

Imagine years ago, back in the days of dinosaurs, how were men like?

Apparently, they were as expected, small in comparison to the dinosaurs, and just as confused.

We meet Arlo, a little dinosaur from a farmer family, who is shy and weaker than his siblings, making him the one his parents are usually concerned about.

One day, when asked to protect the farm, Arlo finds a little human and even though he should kill the boy, he decides to set him free.

His father then drags Arlo to go look for the boy; unfortunately, on the way, a flood washes over and kills the father when Arlo is lost in the middle of nowhere.

Then, Arlo finds the boy, and ends up being friends with him. Arlo even names the boy Spot.

These two new friends then team up to find a way home. And they meet interesting dinosaurs and have amazing adventures they will never forget.

I loved it.

I honestly thought Spot looked a lot like Zac Efron, and I loved the storyline. Disney has been pushing stories on friendships between creatures of different species, and it’s inspiring. (Take note on Zootopia).

I love how the size does not matter in this movie. Little Spot is ferocious. The little guy really knows what to do to survive. He isn’t afraid, and he can scare even a dinosaur ten times his size.

It might be a David vs Goliath kind of thing, and I think it’s hilarious. And of course, the baby boy looks like Efron, and it just makes it a lot funnier than I thought it’d be.

The movie gives us a nice perspective. Instead of seeing it as a human, we get to see things from the dinosaur’s perspective. It’s fresh, and it’s sweet.

We explore the world from a different set of eyes, and I appreciate the justice done to the characters.

I give this movie a 7.5/10. I know that some people might find it slow, or a little boring, and a lot of people cried watching it. Children will enjoy this movie for sure, and those who love dinosaurs will too, just as much as I do.

Jurassic Park, Disney Pixar version!

But it’s truly adorable. You will for sure fall in love with the characters, and be invested enough to care about their development. And that’s important.
