Willie Waffle’s Movie Review: Tim Burton’s ‘Dumbo’ [AUDIO]
Our very own Willie Waffle filled us in on the on and only big movie this week: Dumbo.
Using his patented Waffle rating system, Willie Waffle gives you his expert opinion, so you don’t waste your cash on a flick fail.
"A young elephant, whose over-sized ears enable him to fly, helps save a struggling circus, but when the circus plans a new venture, Dumbo and his friends discover dark secrets beneath its shiny veneer." -IMDb
WILLIE WAFFLE'S POINT SYSTEM:
Dumbo = 2.5 Waffles
*The Waffle Spectrum ranges from 0 to 4 Waffles*
This is a movie remake by the popular and creative movie genius Tim Burton that's mostly portrayed as a live-action movie more than a cartoon. You get to see the original story line, but you'll also get a glimpse at a new story we've never seen before that emerges towards the end.
As for the CGI, Willie tells us that despite a very difficult flying scene with Dumbo the baby elephant, it was actually pretty impressive and well done. After all, this is a story about an elephant that learns to fly by flapping it's over-sized ears.
Lastly, Willie tells us to be cautious when bringing children who spook easily. Despite the rating only being PG, there are a few scenes that may be intense and a bit scary. Just a fair warning for this Disney remake.
