Christopher Robin Movie Review
I was so excited that I could send one of our reviewers and several of our readers to go see the preview for Christopher Robin before it opened in theaters. My email and text message were filled with rave reviews that evening after the showing sharing how much they loved film. These rave reviews came from the young ones as they did the grandmas in the group which proved this is a film for everyone.
One of our readers even went so far to call out her local news station on her Facebook for giving it a thumbs down.In true “mom” spirit she let them know why they were wrong in their rankings. This was a great reminder to me that we can’t always trust every review we read and need to take the time to read several before making our decision. Plus sometimes what might not work for someone else might work for you.
However, I do think that Christopher Robin is a film that every Winnie the Pooh fan should see. The movie is post World War 2 and that is portrayed to the reader with the subdued colors of the film. While some may find this weird compared to the bright, vibrant colors we are accustomed to in films, I find this a wonderful way to set the scene and take us into the moment.
The movie stuck true to the era of the film while tying together all we love about the characters from the books, movies, and cartoons of the past. It also taught a wonderful lesson that we all need to learn, like a good Hundred Acre Woods story does.
The wonderful film uses are favorite characters to bring a family back to together and of course there are some fun antics along the way from our friends. Check out this special clip from the film and then head out to see it in your local theater now.
Movie Synopsis: In Disney’s heartwarming live action adventure, the young boy who shared countless adventures with his stuffed animal friends in the Hundred Acre Wood has grown up and lost sight of what’s important in life. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin rediscover the joys of family life, the value of friendship and to appreciate the simple pleasure in life once again.
