  1. msmichel's rating of the film Dear Mr. Watterson

    Strictly for the fan club of 'Calvin and Hobbes' right down to its kickstarter funding. Having said that who isn't a fan of 'Calvin and Hobbes'? Watterson is of course a lesson in integrity in his decision to not merchandise his strip and retire it while it was still relevant. The film works while sticking to the voices of other cartoonists but fails in the filmmaker's need to integrate himself throughout.

  5. Henrique Amud's rating of the film Dear Mr. Watterson

    It actually has some interesting interviews at the middle section, specially with Pearls Before Swine creator, that go deeper into Watterson and his work. The rest is just a bunch of people telling the camera how important his work is to them...but honestly I couldn't care for that. It's worth for those 30 minute middle section and tha's it

  6. mjgildea's rating of the film Dear Mr. Watterson

    3 1/2 out of 5 stars. The history and analysis of Calvin and Hobbes (namely its lack of merchandising) as well as Watterson's influence were very interesting but Schroeder's overwhelming need to nudge his way into the story takes away from it. If I was watching this at home I would've turned it off within the first 15 minutes & read some Calvin & Hobbes comics instead. Its worth trudging through but there's a price.

  8. Robert Karol's rating of the film Dear Mr. Watterson

    Decent film, with some perceptive interviews on Watterson's importance, but Schroeder's need to validate his personal connection with the comic strip makes this way too padded.
