OK, I’m reviving this zombie because the movie is on cable now, and the Mrs. and I finally saw it. Our opinion:
Least fave Pixar movie so far. And we’ve seen Cars (but didn’t see Cars II).
It was visually rich, but just didn’t deliver the way Pixar flicks usually do. Not clever, not subtle, not particularly funny. Aimed strictly at young kids, without much reward for the adults taking them to the movie.
And couldn’t agrarian sauropods have been shown to have evolved some sort of manipulative appendages? How the hell did they build a grain silo much less tie complex knots for the snare?
And how’d that one cameo (the triceratops with coping issues) get such a short shrift, anyway? Such unrealized potential . . .
And how’d the feral human kid manage to keep his loincloth on the whole time, anyway? (I know, I know, the same way Tarzan did).
The cowboy T Rex was not bad, though.
I guess I just expect more from Pixar, and don’t feel they really delivered with this one.
