Pete’s Dragon: 35th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: I think kids will enjoy this movie but many parents might be overwhelmed by the film’s saccharine songs and performances. Like I mentioned earlier, the best thing in this movie is Jim Dale who later gained even more fans from his readings of the Harry Potter audio-books.

Pete’s Dragon: 35th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: Pete’s Dragon is just one of those films that wasn’t nearly as magical as I remembered it. As children we get caught up in a particular character more than the story in a film. Honestly, I hadn’t remembered very much of the plot at all. I just remembered Elliott.

Pete's Dragon: 35th Anniversary Edition

High-Def Digest
23 October 2012
  • Conclusion: When I think of the best live-action Disney films 'Pete's Dragon' never really comes to the forefront of my mind. It'll always be overshadowed by the true classics in Disney's vault, but it's nice to see that Disney is starting to bring them to Blu-ray in a dignified way.

Disney In Depth: Blu-ray Review: Pete’s Dragon

Geeks of Doom
18 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Two hours represents a worthy portion of the day that could be used to engage in many activities. Cleaning the house. Raking a yard full of leaves. Painting a room. All of those chores seem much more entertaining than watching portions of Pete’s Dragon , an inept entry in the Disney catalog.

Pete's Dragon (1977)

  • Conclusion: Pete's Dragon will work its magic on anyone nostalgic enough to be susceptible to its tricks, but as a Disney classic, a kids film or even a family musical, it's too bloated and ungainly for its own good. My inner child came out to play; my cranky critic kept glancing at his watch.

PETE'S DRAGON (35TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION) - Blu-ray review

moviemet.com
14 October 2012
  • Summary: The problem is how GOOD the hi-def transfer is, because it makes the computer animated dragon look pale and clumsy compared to the wonderfully detailed live action figures, objects, and even many of the backgrounds.

  • Conclusion: Pete's Dragon holds up as a fun and heartwarming film. It's the kind of movie you can watch half-heartedly at any time and skip sequences without feeling like you're missing anything. It's entertainment that belongs in the collections of all serious Disney fans and 1970s kids.

  • Conclusion: Another not very charming but harmless fusion of animation and good old real-life.
