What If Dinosaurs Never Became Extinct?

"What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? In this epic journey into the world of dinosaurs, an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of."   ~IMDB

     I was never one of those kids that got into dinosaurs.   They were cool and everything, but I didn't ever become obsessed with them like lots of other children did.   As of now I'm pretty much the same way.   They're interesting and all, but I can't actually see one or ride one or do anything with one.   Even if I could, I'd probably be terrified of them.   My extent of dinosaur knowledge comes straight from PBS Kid's Dinosaur Train.

    But, hey.   This is Pixar we're talking about.   No movie can simply be about dinosaurs.   Every single movie they make is destined to make at least one person cry.   (Except maybe Cars, but most of us Pixar superfans pretend that movie doesn't exist.)   This movie has been made by people who made a movie about toys that made you cry so hard you couldn't breathe.   (I didn't cry because I am a heartless stick, but enough about that.   *puts on sunglasses because all heartless sticks wear sunglasses, obvs*)

     Disney hasn't been very good at dinosaurs, to be honest.   I've never watched the movie Dinosaur, but its reviews aren't very glowing.   Just looking at pictures from the movie bores me to tears.   However, it was a noble effort in the computer animation department.

If you're not interested yet, here's a trailer to get you excited:


     Arlo is the cutest, okay?   In fact, it's high time I bought another stuffed animal (I say after I just bought a big Minnie Mouse Tsum Tusm), don't you think?   Arlo is basically me around: a. needles, b. contagiously sick people, and c. people who try to talk to me.   I really didn't think I'd like Arlo very much, but when I heard his cute little voice he instantly became the most adorable dinosaur.

     Spot.    Spot is the cutest cute.   He's an adorable little puppy and I love him.   I wonder if Spot has relatives (i.e. parents, siblings, cousins, whatevs) and if that will be brought out in the film.   I also need a stuffed Spot.   This is important.

     Can I go ahead and predict that a lot of people will cry at this movie?  Look at all the tear-worthy moments that are displayed in the trailer.   The trailer.   Not even Inside Out had tear-jerking moments in the trailer, and that movie took everyone's soul and smashed it into fifty million pieces.   (Even me, the heartless stick, but I still didn't cry.   B| )   How Pixar toys with our hearts.   *shakes head*

   This film looks beautiful and stunning and I can't wait to see it.   (Maybe I'll be able to drive by myself soon and I can go watch it without siblings to distract me from it.)   Besides, if my heartless stick shell decides to crack, I should probably be away from civilization.   I'm not a pretty crier.   B|

The Good Dinosaur hits theaters next week on November 25, 2015.
