Review: Pete’s Dragon

By itself, the movie is entertaining…but somehow there is a deja vu feeling as I exited the cinema…

Then I realized the film storyline is rather similar to another movie I recently saw: The BFG (Big Friendly Giant); both films portray¬† frienship / bonding between a child & giants (one human; one dragon ) with some manipulation of the plot line to make it “different”.

If one sees enough movies one cannot help but feels that somehow Hollywood¬† is beginning to run out of new and fresh ideas… so much so that they are resorting to sequels ( eg: Star Wars…) & reboots (Magnificient 7)…
