You've never seen Dinosaurs quite like the kind in "The Good Dinosaur". They aren't from around these parts. Or maybe they are. So, the best question to ask here is, do you like westerns? Because that's what you will get with this movie. It had all the components of a good western movie, kind of. It had a farm with Dinosaur farmers and outlaw villains and some herding cowboy Dinosaurs too! Trust me, it's like nothing you have seen before. It is an adventure for sure.
The movie begins when with Arlo's birth, from that moment his Dad knew he would be destined for greatness. His size didn't really reflect it, but deep down inside as a parent you always know. The lesson for the parents; sometimes we push our children too much. We want them to do so much that we don't allow them to seek and find their own destiny. If we just step back a bit and allow them to find their way they will eventually make their own mark in this life. Arlo along with his new friend Spot, a Neanderthal boy embarks on a journey where he will learn to face his fears. Fears that he learns don't have to be overcome but conquered.
The movie has so many great moments that teach us the value of family and friendships and how fragile life can be. But, Arlo and Spot become best friends and together they can handle anything or anyone that comes their way. Filled with many wild and kooky characters the movie made us laugh, made us cry and made us feel proud. Arlo finds a way to leave his mark and returns home safely to help his family with the harvest before winter begins.
