Main Discussion: The Good Dinosaur (2015)
Mini discussion about our thoughts on the new short Sanjay’s Super Team.
Better titles for The Good Dinosaur brought to you by Mason Smith!
The film’s troubled production history. To understand the film, you need to understand this.
Real talk: photo-realistic backgrounds. Did they work?
Animation: wow, they nailed it!
Characters: small cast, but lots of favorites!
Best parts of the film in our opinion: T-Rexes, Arlo and Spot’s relationship.
The story is good, but not necessarily totally original.
The rotten fruit sequence. Some people think it makes it seem like doing drugs was fun. Agree or disagree?
Would it have been better for Spot to be domesticated or to run free with his kind? Is there some sort of anti-domestication message going on here?
