A good film,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Happiness Is a Warm Blanket Charlie Brown [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I was surprised to see a very recent Peanuts release, something we don't hear about in the UK.
This film is not as good as the earlier specials or series, but that is only becauses Charles was not here to write it himself.
The writer and director have done a very good job at taking the comics and creating a really powerful and modern feature film.
The animation is very good, although the look is so clean it does not really compare to the earlier ones, it looks maybe too clean.
On the plus side the characters suddenly look very cute, and the film + the amazingly beautiful music (Maybe a reason to buy this) creates a real mood for you, a real tale for Linus.
Charlie Browns story that runs through the background is based on the earlier comics, showing mainly failure and depression. This is kind of funny at times, I'd have liked to see him act a bit more human though, rather than 100% emo.
Also i would have liked to have seen more fun with snoopy, all he is there for is to attack Linus and his blanket. There must have been room to fit scene where snoopy is doing his daily fun activities (Like earlier films)
Worth buying as a collector and a film maker, it all works really well together and will be watched many times by me and my siblings.
