#25: Pete’s Dragon

October 16, 2009

petesdragonSo what’s it about?: An orphan boy runs away from his mean new home with the help of his animated and invisible dragon.  Chaos ensues.

The Good: I love this film for one reason, and that is the amazingness that is “Candle on the Water”.  Hands down the greatest song ever to come out of a Disney film.  In fact, this movie has some great musical numbers in it as a whole.

The Bad: Well, it’s really cheesy at times.  Most Disney films walk the fine line between charming and cheesy, but this one at times has enough cheese to give you a heart attack.  There’s a reason it never really got as much acclaim as it’s animated/live action predecessor Mary Poppins nor is it even as good as Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

The Verdict: Watch for the musical numbers and then go watch your cholesterol.
