I really enjoyed this one. It's true that the plot is quite simple and mixes all the characters, but is faithfull to the main story, and don't lost the track. References like the Great Pumpkin are in here, but don't are explored, what is great, cause brings all the nostalgia of big fans (like me) but don't cause confusion for the kids of today. Naive friendship still has a place in 2015 and that is lovely.
I was a bit afraid of a tridimensional CGI Charlie Brown but it actually turned out just fine, very aesthetically pleasing and living up to Schulz's original comics. Though the plot may seem simple, there are mixed-up feelings of happiness, sadness and most of all: nostalgia.
Faithful...yes. Serviceable...yes. Bland...afraid so. One can't question the motive (cash) but why such an old fashioned take on the classic comic script? Film feels like it could have come out the year after the previous film not 35 years later. An OK time killer to babysit some kids perhaps but otherwise a pretty dated affair. And I was really looking forward to this one.
SO SWEET! Even though the trailer sums up pretty much all the best scenes The Peanuts movie is still very enjoable. The soundtrack is amazing. I want another one! One of the best animation movies of 2015, for sure!
This is very sweet. But it's not memorable, I'll forget it within the next 30 days. I enjoy these overly young animations, like The Good Dinosaur and Peanuts - they really set an audience and go for it. My problem with animations is: why does it have to have the same climax? We all know things will eventually go wrong, but at the end it all gets better. I dream about a cartoon where it is all better, all the time.
That a kids movie this sweet and unironic could be made in 2015 is kind of remarkable. No fart jokes. No lame pop culture references. No innuendo for the "adults." Yes, this is familiar material. So what? It's big Valentine to fans and a warm, loving tribute to Schulz. Even if you're not a big Peanuts fan, you'd have to be pretty cynical not to crack a smile as you watch. Miles above mediocrity like MINIONS, etc.
Extremely true to the original cartoons and Schulz's aesthetic. The story's nothing original but in a nostalgic way that makes it appealing. Loved the mix of computer animation and traditional animation.
