The top of the list movie to see this week is PETE’S DRAGON. It’s the adventures of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon. The trailers look great. It’s also available in a 3D version and, according to people who have seen the movie, they’re pretty much divided on whether to see it in 3D (51% say yes). I’ll probably check it out in 3D. According to Screen International’s Tim Grierson,
‘Pete’s Dragon sports an undeniably old-fashioned, even slightly square demeanour, but even when that aura feels a tad forced, Lowery’s loving care gives the movie a likeable, small-scale charm.’ People ***1/2 ◉ Critics ***1/2
See you at the movies!
