    Not quite what I was expecting, but still highly enjoyable and well made. Excellent cinematography.

    Started out good, but then turned into a fucking reality TV show.

    Tom Hanks needs to take more roles like this.

    This is such a bizarre movie.

    The story is about a dinosaur who gets lost and needs to find his way home. One would assume such an epic journey would involve meeting or at least encountering many other dinosaurs and/or forms of life, but Arlo runs into only about 6 others. So much care was put into making the world look amazing, but it never feels believable because...there's nobody in it.

    It's also not a very funny movie, which is…

    The most Hollywood-ized movie ever made.

    A film about chronic traumatic encephalopathy has a romantic subplot. That's pretty much all you need to know.

    Watch the PBS Frontline documentary League of Denial instead.

    Yes, there is such a thing as being too self-aware.

    But that is not nearly as egregious as the horrendous CGI. Colossus looks like he's made of clay. What the fuck? I didn't believe any of the stunts - if any of them were preformed for real - because nothing looked believable.
