Movie heads-up – Dinosaurs rule, OK?


If a meteor hadn’t hit Earth and wiped out the dinosaurs, would we be living happily alongside them today? I fear we’d be lunch, except when such an alternate history is penned by Pixar.

Under the animation studio’s guidance, dinosaurs are given names, feelings and ambitions and the humans are just another animal running around.

Into this universe comes the tale of a dinosaur in search of his place in the world and the human child who becomes his loyal pet/companion.

The Good Dinosaur is much anticipated by the under-10 crowd and their parents, who are nearing the boredom end of the school holidays, and it will be snapped up gratefully.

With the voices of Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright, Steve Zahn and Anna Paquin, the general consensus is that it entertains “even if it’s not as Pixar perfect as we’ve come to expect”, says The Standard’s Matt Neal.
