Pete’s Dragon

posted by Nell Minow

“Pete’s Dragon,” a warm-hearted Disney musical fantasy combining live action and animation, is out on DVD today. It stars Helen Reddy (singing the Oscar-nominated song, “Candle on the Water”), Mickey Rooney, and Jim Dale (narrator of the Harry Potter audiobooks). The first person who sends me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Dragon” in the subject line will win a DVD.

    Oooh, I am sooo tempted. My son (our own “Pete”)loved “Pizza Dragon” – his words at 2 years old. 22 years later he is still a fan of the Big Guy – as am I. But I will leave to contest to someone whose kid is now two and eager to meet “Pizza Dragon”. I hope the winner enjoys hte film as we have for so long.

    Pete’s Dragon was the very first movie I was taken to as a tot and it remains quite high on my all-time-favorites list. I was a bit bummed that Disney did not see fit to match this new DVD edition with a Blu-ray edition. I want to visit Passamaquoddy in Hi-Def!
    I love this movie so much — to this day I can quote the song lyrics to you. (and can often be caught singing them too!)
    Have a Brazzle-Dazzle-Day, Nell! :)

I'm a big fan of ABC Family's Switched at Birth and have appreciated its complicated characters, honest and heartfelt relationships, and compelling storylines, as well as its unprecedented, in-depth portrayal of the deaf community. Last week's episode may have been the all-time best (SPOILER ALERT)

Comic-Con 2014
It's here!  San Diego Comic-Con begins Wednesday night in San Diego and I'll be there.  This is my favorite event of the year, a chance to find out what everyone will be watching, listening to, playing, and otherwise enjoying over the next few years.  As I always say, this is the Iowa caucuses of

Wish I Was Here
My intention was to review Zach Braff's new film without mentioning the controversy he stirred up in funding it via Kickstarter.  My view was that what mattered was the movie itself, and the kerfluffle over how it was all paid for was beside the point.  But it turns out that it is the point.  "Sc

Happy Anniversary of the First Moon Landing
45 years ago today, Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on the moon, a powerful reminder of what is possible if we put no limits on our goals "for all mankind."  I hope we never lose that sense of endless possibility, boundless curiosity, and the determination and courage to carry it thro
