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)…
