The not so good dinosaur
By Kaely Monahan
The Good Dinosaur is a bland coming-of-age tale about overcoming your fears and making your mark in the world. It echoes loudly of classic animated features like The Land Before Time, Bambi and The Lion King, but unlike those films it lacks originality in its story line.
The film opens with the identical scene from the teaser trailer of the asteroid zipping past Earth instead of hitting it. A million years later dinosaurs are still the “king lizard” and have evolved to the point where they have farms, herd livestock, and live civilized — if isolated — lives. (Think Little House on the Prairie, but with dinosaurs).
