Blaine’s Box Office: Pete’s Dragon

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

There's something for everyone in Pete's Dragon.

Parents are going to love the throwback to the 1977 version. But, make no mistake, this is a total reboot. This update is all live action. Somehow, that makes to make Elliot even more lovable. I'm a grown man and even I melted a couple of times.

Aside from the boy and his dragon, the adult characters really deliver. I mean, can you really go wrong with Robert Redford and Bryce Dallas Howard? Moms and dads will love the innocence in this story, too. It's wholesome, yet wildly entertaining.

In a summer of lackluster offerings for families, Pete's Dragon is, without a doubt, the best thing out there. I give it 4 out of 5 Blaines.
