Pete's Dragon 

 

I am very thankful Family Friendly Gaming was provided the Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD version of Pete's Dragon for this review. This is the live action movie version of Pete's Dragon. I must admit that I have not seen the animated movie in some years. I remember the animated version to have a happy and friendly version of the giant green dragon who could vanish whenever he wanted to.

The live action version of Pete's Dragon is much more adult in my opinion. Pete's Dragon gets really preachy on environmentalism. Pete's Dragon attacks loggers, and the entire logging industry. Pete's Dragon does not show the other side. I remember people living in harmony with nature being forced out of their homes by the government during the Clinton presidency so only the animals could live there. It is a real black eye on our nation and a very dark time.

Some of the bonus content on the disc of Pete's Dragon is Bloopers, two music videos, commentary, disappearing moments, making magic, and a director's diary. It takes 103 minutes to watch this movie. Pete's Dragon explains how a dragon could remain unseen in the forest. How? By turning invisible (magic maybe?). Dragons also do not like people in Pete's Dragon. Except for the little boy.

Pete's Dragon starts off pretty scary. A little boy of three of four gets into a car accident when his father avoids hitting a deer. The little boy Pete is left all alone. He leaves clutching his book and is surrounded by wolves. This is when the dragon (Pete names him Elliot) comes by to protect and save him. Six years later the two of them come across civilization.

There are action adventure moments in Pete's Dragon. The dragon attacks people. The people capture the dragon. A truck is stolen, and all kinds of property is damaged. The laws that are violated in Pete's Dragon are numerous. I also noticed interesting commentary on forcing kids into the horrible public educational system or letting them live free in the woods. The dragon also had a habit of sneezing on people.

Near the end of the movie I noticed lessons about sticking with your species, and how important family is. The dragons in Pete's Dragon are social. Pete's Dragon also teaches that humans are social too. That lesson may not be beaten over our heads like the radical far left environmentalism is, but they are still there. Everyone here at Family Friendly Gaming had a lot to say about Pete's Dragon. This movie sparked all kinds of conversation.
