[ACT] Your last movie?
Pete's Dragon (2016) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2788732/

I had low expectations however this movie was tremendous. The cast was fine and the soundtrack subtle. You can make out strings of music from "Somewhere Out There" about when the song reaches, "then we'll be together somewhere out there, out where dreams come true," BUT it isn't officially in the movie. The best that can be found is the composer's music was highly derivative.  Still, whether purposeful or not, the feeling those notes inspire is felt throughout this dramady.

A lot rests on the effects which IMO were great. Elliot was pretty awesome. This sappy movie is effective at making you laugh and cry while wishing you could have a dragon as a pet. It stays true to the Human factor, and by that I mean that as a group, Humans are stupid. The bigger the group, the more foolish they are.

It's hard to rate until I've seen it multiple times however I'd go with a 9/10 but if forced to use an /5 system, I'd jump to 5/5 Drakes.



...

My initial experience with the original was as a kid with an LP of it.  I think that when I did see the original, it seemed either too slow or too adult for me. It may be that I expected more animation as a kid. It's hard to remember now. ... ... ... I had a longer paragraph but for some reason it was filtered out...... I also didn't really like musicals.... Disney was free to watch Sunday nights anyway, until they decided to cash in on VHS and that segment was gone.
