The Good Dinosaur

2016-0704 The Good Dinosaur

According to what we know today, humans and dinosaurs did not live at the same time. We also believe dinosaurs did not speak English. However, if we suspend our beliefs long enough to read the post, view the trailer, or watch the movie, we would find Disney and Pixar created a movie about conquering fear, overcoming adversity, and thriving in a new normal.

I am 99.995% certain Disney and Pixar produced the movie to entertain and make money rather than motivate and inspire viewers who had been adversely affected by life-altering adversity, but they created an entertaining, motivational, and inspirational movie that generated more than $331 million in worldwide ticket sales according to Box Office Mojo. even though the movie was not received well by critics and it had a slow start at the box office.

I highly recommend you watch the movie if you are interested in an family friendly entertaining, motivational, and inspirational movie that is free of steamy scenes, car chases, and gratuitous violence.
